Being on a diet doesn’t mean you have to suffer by starving or eating tasteless food. You can still lose weight by eating in moderation and choosing the food you eat. Weight Watchers Recipes will help with your weight loss goals while still letting you enjoy great tasting food. If you’re busy and don’t have much time to cook I highly suggest you get a pressure cooker. It makes cooking delicious meals super quick and easy, and by cooking at home, you can save money and make sure that your ingredients are all healthy. To help you plan your meals I listed down my favorite 31 Pressure Cooker Weight Watchers Recipes that you can easily prepare at home.
Note: This recipe is for a precooked ham. I buy those all the time to save time. They still take about 2 hours to cook in the oven. That is a long time that you need to plan for before eating dinner. I never have two hours unless it is the weekend but I often crave ham so I figured out how to cook a ham in the pressure cooker.
It is actually very easy. You will need the following items.
Optional Potatoes and herbs if you want to cook your meal together.
1. If you are cooking your potatoes with your ham. The put in the potatoes first.
2. Pour in the 1 cup of water (Whether you have potatoes or veggies or not.)
3. Place a large sheet of foil on your counter (It must be big enough to wrap your ham)
4. Put your ham in the foil. Do not wrap the top. You will leave it open to pour in your sugar and pineapple mixture once it is in the pressure cooker.
5. Mix the packet ingredients or the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg with 1/2 cup of the pineapple juice from the can of pineapple. You can use the pineapples later or put them on the ham in the pressure cooker. Our kids like their pineapples not cooked with their ham. I like mine cooked so I do half and half.
7. Place the foil wrapped ham on top of the sling
8. Make sure the foil will contain the liquid you are about to add.
9. Pour in the liquid mixture.
10. Close the Foil
11. Shut the Pressure cooker
12. Turn it to 10 minutes for your pre-cooked ham that is 6-7 lbs
13. Let the pressure release when it is done
14. Use your mitts to take off the top
15. Unwrap your ham and let it cool
I do this during the week so I can use the ham to make other recipes. These are some of my favorite recipes with ham.

1 TBSP of Olive oil (or any other oil you prefer)
1 Large Onion
1.5-2lbs Beef Roast
1 Pound Carrots (I prefer the organic rainbow carrots)
1 Pound Dutch Yellow Baby Potatoes
24 Ounces of beef stock or vegetable stock
1 TSP Garlic
1 TSP Onion powder
1 TSP Garlic powder
1 TSP Worcestershire Sauce
1 TSP Soy Sauce
Salt and Pepper to taste
Grab the knife and peeler and do all the prep work first!
Lay out the Beef Roast first so it can get close to room temperature.
Peel the carrots and dice into about 2-3” pieces.
Slice the onion into rings and separate.
Measure all dry and wet ingredients. Once that is done, Rub the beef roast with salt and pepper.
Drizzle the oil into the pan and turn to sear.
Add the sliced onions to the pot and let them cook for about 5 minutes and toss them around, so they don’t stick.
Remove the onions and place the beef roast into the pot and let it sit there for 3 minutes, then rotate and do the other side for 3 minutes. Stand it up and do each of the ends as well for about 3 minutes too. Once that is done add your carrots and potatoes.
Mix the broth, garlic, onion powder, garlic powder, worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and pour into the pot as well. Give one good stir then close the lid and press the manual button to cook for 1 hour.
