45 mins in a pressure cooker?????? Noooo
by: Anonymous

I'm glad that I have used my pressure cooker for many many recipes over the years, and I know that there is no way pig feet will take 45 mins in a pressure cooker.

I used 2C water, 3/4 C white vinegar, two bay leaves balanced atop each of three split pig feet, pepper corns resting on areas not covered by bay leaves. Secured lid. Placed rocker on vent. Brought cooker to steam. Adjusted heat to keep rocker moving gently, evenly. DONE in 20 minutes.

Meat and bone were separated. Allowed cooker contents to cool before handling. lifted meat into heated jar. Strained liquid. Poured off fat. Poured liquid over meat in jar. Topped off with white vinegar so that all meat was submerged in liquid. Capped. Placed in frig until gelatin was firm. And ENJOYED! In 25 more minutes (or 45 mins total as instructed by "Soul food and Southern Cooking") the bones would have been mush and I could have eaten those, too. Well, maybe that was the idea all along. But thanks, I'll return the bones to the earth, and swoon for the delicious pickled meat. Mmmmmm!

best pig feet recipe ever
by: tina

You don't have to drown them. Put four to five split feet in 2 cups of water, 1/2 c. vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (to taste), 2 to 3 stalks celery, and 1 small onion. Put top on and after it rocks cook 45 minutes to an hour. I checked after 45 minutes and gave it another 15 minutes for falling off the bone and really tender skin.

Cooking pigs feet in a pressure cooker
by: Anonymous

I just bought myself a new pressure cooker. The first meal I cooked was a pot of beans. Surprisingly it only took me 12-15 minutes. I should have adopted the practice of using a pressure cooker many years ago. Had I done so, I could have saved myself thousands of hours away from the kitchen.

In any case, my next adventure is trying to pressure cook pigs feet and then I'll try my luck with some chitterlings. I'll let you know how things turn out.
