Make the juiciest hamburgers possible indoors. The secret to cooking juicy burgers is to take advantage of the moist heat inside a pressure cooker. Pressure cooking hamburgers keeps the meat moist, but browning the burgers before cooking will give you the familiar crust on the exterior. Pull out your pressure cooker and try your hand at making burgers in a new way.
Things You'll Need
- Cooking spray
- Pressure cooker
- Steaming rack
- 2 cups beef broth
Spray a skillet with cooking spray and heat to medium-high heat on a stove top.
Brown the hamburgers on both sides for one minute per side.
Transfer the hamburgers to the steaming rack inside a pressure cooker.
Pour the beef broth into the bottom of the pressure cooker.
Cover the cooker and seal the lid. Bring the pressure cooker up to 15 psi.
Begin timing the cooking. Cook the hamburgers for four to six minutes. Use the quick-release method according to your pressure cooker's manufacturer's instructions.
Insert a meat thermometer and test for 160 degrees Fahrenheit to indicate the hamburgers have cooked through.
