I've made these several times since purchasing my electric pressure cooker, and finally have the liquid-bean ratio just where i like it . I brown the onion first, then combine 2 cups veg broth, 3 cups water and one bag of dried black beans, and 1 Tbsp olive oil. Cook for 40 minutes and the beans are tender. Salt to taste after they are cooked. Read More

A bit salty for my taste. Cilantro was quite strong. I added cumin after which was a nice touch. If I made it again I would use half the water, salt & cilanto and add cumin. Read More

Loved this recipe and it cooked great in my electric pressure cooker. I ended up adding some fresh lime juice to it. When I make it again I will skip the balsamic and add lime juice, some cumin and seasoned salt at the end. Read More

I used this recipe to break in my stovetop pressure cooker. It provided a good introduction to the process, and made a very tasty pot of beans. Not being able to see what's going on in the pot or test the flavor along the way is going to take some getting used to, but the speed and resulting flavors seem to make up for it! The next time, I will probably try a little less water and some different spices, but it was very good as written. Read More

I have gotten into using my pressure cooker lately.. I love these beans better than presoaked or sprouted beans in the pressure cooker... They just taste better? Who would have thought that... Read More

Absolutely delicious. I like to put in a couple diced chipotles in adobo before cooking the beans for a bit of smoky heat. Read More

Very tasty. I cut the recipe in half and cooked for 40 mins in an electric pressure cooker. Beans were perfectly cooked. Next time I may use a bit less water. Read More

Made half the quantity and turned out wonderful. Did not add vinegar otherwise followed recipe exactly. Huge plus to not have to soak beans. Read More
