Pressure Cooker Brussel Sprouts

So yesterday I was craving some Brussel Sprouts and I wanted them fast. Cooking in a pressure cooker will ensure that they get done in record time. However take my advice, do not pressure cook for 2 minutes, they get a bit mushy. They taste better not so mushy and since we are going to saute them for a few minutes after pressuring cooking, they do not have to be completely mushy.

  • 1 bag Brussel Sprouts
  • 1/2 cp Water
  • 1 tbsp Butter (real butter trust me)
  • Salt and pepper to taste.*


  1. Toss the bag of Brussel Sprouts in the Pressure cooker with about 1/2 cup of water. Close lid and pressurize. Cook under pressure for 1 to 2 minutes depending on how mushy you want it. Let it depressurize.

  2. In a skillet add the Butter and brown the butter.

  3. Add the Brussel Sprouts to the browned butter and saute until the outside gets crispy. Add salt and pepper. And Serve.

Recipe Notes

* Instead of Salt and Pepper, you can add any of your favor seasoning. I like to add lemon to mine from time to time. You could also add Parmesan Cheese while sauteing.
