Mussels Recipe For The Pressure Cooker
  • Mussels - I can put 3 lbs in my 8 QT Pressure Cooker XL. I make one set and then I just make the rest. If you plan to make 5 lbs. Then you would just use half my easy recipe.
  • ½ cup of Wine
  • 3 TBS of Garlic
  • 1 large can of Diced Tomatoes 28 ozs  (I usually grab some with an Italian blend but this time I did the plain version)
  • 3 TBS of Butter
  • A handful of  Scallions or Italian Parsley works. I just like to see some green.
  • (Pasta and Marina sauce although my husband just likes the juice from the pressure cooker on his plate.
  1. Plug in your pressure cooker and put in 1½ cup of water. (2 cups if you skip the wine)
  2. Look at the mussels and make sure they are all closed. You do not want to eat anything that is already open prior to cooking. Also, clean off the shells.
  3. Next, put  your steamer  in the pressure cooker (You can put the mussels in without it. I just think this contains the mess.)
  4. Put the mussel on top of the steamer
  5. Then dump the can of tomatoes
  6. Add the garlic
  7. Slice up the butter
  8. Pour on the wine
  9. Top with the scallions or the Italian Parsley
  10. Then close the pressure cooker. Put it on for 8 minutes in the manual setting.
  11. Once the pressure cooker is done cooking release the pressure using your mitts
  12. Make sure the mussels are open before you serve them. If they didn't open and there are only a few then they are bad if most of them didn't open you need to put them back in the pressure cooker for longer.
  13. I usually serve them over pasta. I make my pasta on the stove. You can use the juice under the steamer and pour it over the pasta or just serve them with marinara sauce.
