Red Beans Pressure Cooker question

Guy | Jun 4, 200305:05 PM     10

I've made red beans (N'Awlins style) countless times, but never used a pressure cooker before. I understand that is the trick to making truly creamy beans.

So I just got out the pressure cooker received as a wedding gift 17 years ago (I'm embarassed to admit we never used it) and am ready to go.

How long does one cook under pressure? This is a German-made unit with 3 different pressure settings, any thoughts from experienced users which one is appropriate?

Thanks for any suggestions!
