Pressure Cooker Turkey Stock


While there’s nothing wrong with slow-cooking your turkey stock on the stove, we’re obsessed with the pressure cooker right now. (Bonus: You get a day’s worth of flavor in just an hour’s time.) The super concentrated stock is perfect for dreamy turkey soup but would make an outstanding risotto as well.

Makes about 4 quarts

1 turkey carcass

1 yellow onion, skin on, sliced in half

2 carrots

2 stalks celery

1 bay leaf

1. Combine all the ingredients in a pressure cooker.

2. Top with water all the way to the fill line (about 2 liters). Lock pressure cooker lid, set valve to pressure, and set to pressure cook for 1 hour.

3. Once done, strain the ingredients and use the stock for cooking grains, sauces, or soups.
