I just had to make 2 batches of chicken soup in one afternoon so I did one on the stovetop, and the other in my pressure cooker. I was genuinely surprised that all ingredients being equal, the pressure cooker soup clearly had more flavor than the stovetop version. It had a noticeably richer chicken flavor.

I guess its true that a pressure cooker really does infuse the flavor, and nutrients, into the food, as opposed to some of those same flavors and nutrients typically being cooked out of the food during conventional cooking. So now I'm eager to try more recipes in my PC (up until now it was mostly used for those 15 minute artichokes during the season).

I'm sure there are Chowhounds who already know and appreciate pressure cooking and I'm wondering if you have any recipes you would suggest for this novice PCer?
