Rice is a popular side dish for various dishes. Rice contains not only complex carbohydrates, which lead to a longer feeling of satiety, but also valuable B vitamins. Of course, rice can also be prepared excellently in a pressure cooker. To do this, mix the desired amount of rice with water in a ratio of 1:1 in an unperforated insert. Fill the pressure cooker with a little water up to the "Min" mark, place the tripod and insert in the pressure cooker and bring to the boil on the highest stove power. As soon as the yellow ring appears, the cooking time of 5-8 minutes on cooking level 3 begins - depending on the desired al dente consistency. Rice is also excellent for tiered cooking in the pressure cooker.

To do this, cut the red cabbage into fine strips and first sauté with the lid off. Season to taste. Add some red wine and vinegar to the red cabbage up to the "min" mark inside the pot, close the pressure cooker and turn the stove to the highest setting. As soon as the yellow ring appears, the cooking time of 4-6 minutes on cooking level 3 begins.
