Best of all, this is a one pot recipe! That means no big mess to clean when you are done cooking. Now we made this in a 8 qt pressure cooker, but don't worry if you don't have one at home. The recipe will work just fine on the stove top. Just saute where the instructions say to do so, and when you get to the pressure cooking part turn your heat down to low, cover the pot, and let it cook for about a good half an hour. However you make it, it will be great. Now let's get cooking!
