Ingredients

  • 1 pound Sweet Italian Sausages
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 3/4 orange bell pepper thickly sliced
  • 1/2 large sweet onion thickly sliced
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth

Instructions

  • Heat vegetable oil in Instant Pot on saute setting. Brown sausage on both sides for about 5 -7 minutes.
  • Add broth, peppers and onions to the Instant Pot. Seal and cook on high pressure for 2 minutes.

Notes

  • Browning sausage well not only adds flavor, but decreases pressure cooking time.
  • Smaller and faster pressure cookers can cook this recipe in 2 minutes.
  • Larger pots or pots that may be a bit slower to cook take 3 minutes.
  • Thinly sliced peppers and onions will become mushy, but thickly sliced vegetables will hold up well and cook nicely under pressure.
  • If soft vegetables are a concern they can be sauteed in vegetables and removed before cooking sausages.
  • If sausages haven't reached 160°F they can be returned to the pot on the saute setting to finish cooking.
  • Tastes great served with garlic mustard and/or relish.
  • When adding chicken broth to the pot, make sure sausage do not stick to the bottom of the pan to avoid triggering the burn feature on the Instant Pot.
