There are a few southern foods that I just can’t live without eating! Boiled peanuts, grits, pimento cheese, and low country boil. Yes, these aren’t necessarily plant based or good for you per se. Especially if you cook them “southern style” but these food remind my of my youth. They are warm and comforting, and every so often I allow myself to indulge. But, of course, I try to put my healthy spin on them! So let’s get started with this 10 Minute Low Country Boil in the Pressure Cooker. With a few tweaks and turns this meal will be a “not so bad for you” indulgence!
I Need A Pressure Cooker?
I am politely screaming at you, YES!!! For me, the pressure cooker was life changing! It’s the one pot appliance you can’t live without having in your kitchen. And trust me, I am the ultimate small appliance nerd. Imagine your slow cooker and how you can throw everything in and walk away with ease. Now imagine that it completes its task in 10-15 minutes. THAT’S A PRESSURE COOKER!! You seriously need this in your life. Here’s a link to purchase the one I have. I make no commissions off of this link! I’m sharing because I love you and I can’t live without mine. You will thank me later!
Now, the reason I love the pressure cooker for the 10 minute low country boil is ease of cooking and less mess when eating. I’m not one of those people who loves to touch her food. It kinda grosses me out. I prefer to use a fork. By cooking in the pressure cooker, everything is chopped and ready to go. I just spoon the finished product into a bowl and me, and my little fork are happy. And don’t forget, you can finish this meal in under 10 minutes. Potatoes and everything! That’s a win in my book.
Let’s Make This Healthy
Please know that I am not endorsing that you eat low country boil regularly. Shrimp and sausage aren’t really on my healthy list! But I do feel it is important to enjoy meals that you love. And eating this occasionally, for me, is one of those things. The key to making this meal healthier is quality ingredients. Here’s what I look for when purchasing my ingredients.
10 Minute Low Country Boil in the Pressure Cooker
- The amount of spice I use makes a very mild low country boil. If you like a spicier variety, be sure to sprinkle more seasoning on once you plate.
- Corn on the cob is one of my pet peeves! It’s messy, squirts everywhere, and always gets stuck in my teeth. Therefore, I use organic frozen whole kernel corn and it works perfectly!
- Another fabulous addition is okra when it’s in season. Dice some okra and add it in when you add the shrimp and sausage. If you are an okra fan, you will love this addition!
