Multi-course meals in a pressure cooker?

The Dairy Queen | May 19, 2008 04:18 AM

I've decided to take the plunge and buy a pressure cooker. I've heard that pressure cookers were marketed early in the 20th century as a way to make multi-course meals at one time, by stacking steamer type trays in the PC. I've also heard stories about how you can do, say, meatloaf and potatoes side by side in the pressure cooker. I've got Lorna Sass' Cooking Under Pressure and have flipped through a couple of her other books (notes from an ecological kitchen, for one) and done a few searches here on chowhound but haven't seen much about two dishes in the PC at the same time.

Anyone have any experiences with this or any good resources to recommend for this?

Thank you!
