Fresh Long Beans (Pressure Cooker)
When I say long beans, I mean green beans, taste the same, can be a bit tough depending how old/long they are, and can be 1 to 3 feet long. Highly recommended by a good friend to cook these in a pressure cooker for some amazing beans, and they are! I made these on 7 Feb 2018, and this will be the only way I prepare them from now on. Follow all safety requirements for your pressure cooker.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. For viewers in Asia, these are common in stores and markets, for viewers in the US and Canada, you may be able to find these at Asian markets. The longest beans in these two bundles is 21 inches. I only used 12 beans in this recipe, so 12 is a good number for 4 to 6 servings as a side dish.
  2. Place everything into your slow cooker and give it a stir to mix everything up.
  3. Place on and lock the lid, heat over high heat to bring cooker up to pressure, then reduce heat to maintain full pressure. Once at full pressure and the jiggler is making noise and moving, start counting for 3 to 4 minutes (even 5 minutes if you like really soft green beans).
  4. When the time is up, turn off and move the cooker to an unused burner to cool for a natural release of pressure, about 10-15 minutes.
  5. When it is safe with your pressure indicating zero pressure, remove the lid, drain the beans, put beans in a serving bowl, serve as a side dish.
  6. Served as a side dish with fish.
Recipe Notes

Low cost.

Variant: 1. Add some pork, beef, or chicken broth powder to the beans, about 1/2 tablespoon, excellent flavor.
