1) Place all the ingredients in the pot and place it on the hob. For stews, fry the aromatics and brown the ingredients, if necessary, before adding water or stock.
2) Lock the pot and bring it to pressure, which takes about 15min.
3) Lower the flame when the pot reaches optimal pressure (watch the indicator), then cook for 30-40min.
4) At the end of the cooking, remove the pot from the hob and depressurise it by pressing a button or turning knob before opening the pot. Most modern pressure cookers have a safety lock that does not allow you to open them when there is built-up pressure.
