Tasty Tuesday- Pressure Cooker Green Bean Dinner

It won't be long before there will be fresh green beans available in my area. Perhaps you already have some fresh green beans. If so, here is my favorite way to cook them:
Pressure Cooker Green Bean Dinner
4-6 slices bacon
4 medium sized potatoes, peeled and quartered
1 lb. fresh green beans
1 TBSP. dried chopped onion
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. dried basil
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
Step One
Fry bacon til crisp in the bottom of your 6 qt. pressure cooker. Remove bacon, crumble and set aside.
Step Two
Into the drippings, add the following in order: onion, potatoes, green beans, spices. Add 1 Cup water and put the lid on, sealing the pressure cooker.
Step Three
Cook on high until the pressure begins to jiggle, then turn heat to medium. Continue to cook for approx. 12 minutes. Turn heat off and let pan sit until lid comes off easily ( about 5-10 minutes.)
Serve with crumbled bacon on top.
This makes me hungry just typing the recipe. I've got to go to the roadside vegetable stand and get me a "mess" of green beans to cook for dinner. (My granny was always cooking up a "mess" of something!)
