Reply re:cooking turkey breast in pressure cooker -
My recipes for cooking chicken or turkey say to first brown the meat on all sides (seals in juices) in the pressure cooker in about 3 Tbsp melted shortening. If the cooker has a rack or tray to lift the meat off the bottom of the cooker, I'd use it. (Mine is a tray with holes that lifts the meat about 1/4 inch above the base of the kettle - avoids burning on bottom.) Then add salt, pepper, sliced onion if you wish, or a bit of poultry seasoning or any other seasonings of your choice. Add 1 cup water. Close cover securely and cook for 45 minutes with pressure regulator gently rocking. Remove from heat and let pressure drop of its own accord. I'd probably try to make it a 1 pot meal by adding scrubbed small potatoes and carrots around the turkey breast prior to cooking. The juices from the turkey should make great gravy or a soup base. Good luck and let us know what worked for you and was it tender?
