The book that came with my pressure cooker has a 3-pound beef pot roast, cut in 1-inch cubes would have me brown the meet first, then cook for 30 minutes.
I skip the browning step.
In the 1.5 pound to 4.5 pound range of cubed beef, should I simply use 10 minutes for pound? (e.g. I should cook my 3.5 pounds for 35 minutes)?
A previous question I asked correctly pointed out that cooking times are not linear (if 12 cookies takes 12 minutes, you can't cook 1 cookie for 1 minute). However, now I want to specifically ask about cubed beef in the quantities I use).
