Serves: 6


  • 6 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 2 cups water
  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1⁄4 cup sour cream
  • 1⁄8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper


  • Add the potatoes, water, and salt to the pressure cooker. Lock the lid into place and bring to high pressure; maintain pressure for 7 minutes.
  • While the potatoes cook, melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic; sauté for 2 minutes, being careful not to burn the garlic. Stir the garlic-infused butter into the sour cream.
  • Remove the pressure cooker from the heat, quick-release the pressure, and remove the lid. Drain the potatoes.
  • Return the potatoes to the pressure cooker and put it over low heat for 2 minutes to evaporate any residual moisture.
