"There isn't a quicker complete meal than this one—it takes just minutes in the pressure cooker," confides Ernestine Beoughter of Lawrenceville, Illinois. "The ham and vegetables turn out tender and delicious. This has been a favorite for years, especially with tiny new potatoes and fresh-from-the-garden green beans."
