    Baking soda is used in cooking as a base to lower acidity.

    Newbie to IP — Is the 3 tablespoons Worcester Sauce enough to pressure cook 3 lbs onions? After Saute’ onions is there enough liquid to pressure cook is my question(I guess). Thanks

    There are instructions to add broth in steps 1 and 2. I added it during step 1 and am now worried this is ruined.

    I have a question, how important is apple cider vinegar? I don’t have any and don’t want to go out in the cold.

    Hi Karenlite,

    You have to select the ingredients tab at the bottom of the recipe. If they still do not appear try uninstalling and reinstalling the app.

    This was easy and very tasty. The estimated servings were way off. I halved the recipe and it made 2, barely. So 6 is a stretch. I substitued red wine for the apple vinegar and Guyere for the parmesean. Also topped the bowls with Guyere and toasted it under the broiler. Yum!!

    I usually make in my crock pot – i added a can of beef consumme with the beef broth as it makes it richer as called for in my crock pot recipe. I always make my soups a day ahead as it always tastes better the next day. Im sure this will be as good in the IP. I put shredded mozarella cheese when i serve with a crusty toasted roll Enjoy.

    Subbed the vinegar for 1 cup of Guinness and used Irish Sharp Cheddar instead of mozzarella. I cooked the guinness down to about half volume on the stove top. Started the step to pressure cook the onions for 20mins got about 8-10 mins into the pressure cook. Stopped it with quick release added the cooked down Guinness and continued to pressure cook for the remaining 10 mins of the step. After, I followed the recipe as normal.

    Is the Worcestershire enough liquid to pressure cook? The manual calls for a minimum of 1.5 hmcuoa of liquid to pressure cook, i am a bit concerned. Wont this cause a burn error?
