My friend, Maggie, has been raving to me about the wonders of a pressure cooker: how it makes food in no time at all, how tender and good and nutritious the food is. So recently, after returning to work and facing the dinner time crunch again, I decided to invest in a pressure cooker and see what all the hoo haa was about. These pork chops cook in 18 minutes, but then you have to let the pressure go down and still make the gravy. For this recipe, not a big time saver. But still a good dinner.
