    1. I just realized why mine was overdone… I used 2 lbs of bok choy, so it took longer to reach cooking temperature, which resulted in a longer cooking time.

  1. 5 mins seemed long to me. Did 3 mins, came out ok. Next time I think I’ll just bring it up to pressure then release steam as I do with other veggies that come out perfect that way!
