  1. Thank you so much for this marvelous recipe! I’m making it again tomorrow for my father’s birthday. I am overwhelmed by your recipes and I consider you my cooking mentor!

  2. This recipe looks outstanding. I will make it as soon as I get the time. I’m planning to add some sun-dried tomatoes. Do you think it would be an appropriate addition?

  3. It was such a delightful meal that it was completely finished and nothing was left out of it. I adore the mushrooms so much that I doubled their quantity. I added more stock to make more sauce. Five stars for this recipe!

  4. If you want to add extra veggies such as broccoli or asparagus do you just throw it in before you start the pressure cooker? I am a total beginner!!
