How to make it
- Combine all ingredients in pressure cooker. Top with water. Secure lid.
- Bring to pressure and cook on high for 45 minutes.
- Let the pressure cooker sit for 5 minutes. Carefully carry the cooker to the sink and run very cold water onto the top to bring the pressure down. You'll hear the valve make a big sigh. When it's safe to remove the lid, lift it off.
- Be careful b/c the bones are tender from the pressure cooking. Try to pick them out as serving.
