Pressure Cooker One-Pot Oktoberfest

Raven's Magick Table
You can sear the Bratwurst with a pressure cooker and steam the vegetables quickly in one pot. You can get the taste of Bavaria on the table under 30 minutes. You can use your stovetop instead if you don't have a pressure cooker. If you do, the steaming will take a little longer - be sure you can make the pot air-tight while it steams.

  • 4 slices bacon or alternate Vegan Option
  • 3 bratwurst or alternate Vegan Protein
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 1 lb. 450 g “B”-size red potatoes (about 5–7 potatoes)
  • 3 medium carrots peeled
  • 1 tsp 5 mL canola oil
  • ¼ tsp 1 mL salt
  • ½ cup 125 mL beer (lager)
  • ¼ cup 60 mL whole grain or stone-ground mustard
  • 1 tbsp 15 mL apple cider vinegar
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 5-6 parsley sprigs


  • Slice the bacon into strips and quarter each bratwurst with the Chef’s Knife. Halve and slice the onion, then quarter the potatoes. Slice the carrots on an angle into 1" (2.5 cm) pieces.
  • Set the Pressure Cooker to SEAR and press START. Heat the oil in the inner pot for 3 minutes. Add the bratwurst pieces and brown for 2 minutes, turning once. Transfer the browned brats to the small Steamer Basket.
  • Add the bacon to the inner pot and cook for 3–4 minutes. Add the onion and salt and cook for 3–4 minutes. Stir in the beer, mustard, vinegar, and garlic pressed with the a Garlic Press. Cook for 3–4 minutes. Press CANCEL.
  • Add the potatoes to the large steamer basket and place the carrots on top. Place the small basket into the large basket, then place both into the inner pot (see cook’s tip). Lock the lid and select the STEAM setting. Adjust the time to 3 minutes and press START.
  • When the timer is up, press CANCEL. Press the steam-release button to manually release the pressure.
  • To serve, transfer the ingredients from the baskets into a large Serving Bowl. Add the remaining ingredients from the inner pot to the bratwurst and vegetables. Top with cut parsley


Cook's Tips:

Don’t fill the large basket with too much food. The small basket should be level when nestled into the large basket.
*Safety Tip: The stainless steel inner pot will be hot during and after cooking. Use a long-handled utensil when stirring and removing food.
