Clam Chowder in the Pressure Cooker Recipe

Clam Chowder Made in Pressure Cooker

There are as many different ways to create a great tasting clam chowder soup.  Over the past few years, I’ve had the privilege of enjoying real Boston Clam Chowder in Massachusetts and even a creamy clam chowder up in Maine.  After lots of taste testing (my favorite part) and creating a few versions of the recipe on my own the recipe today is one of my favorites. The first time I made clam chowder in my kitchen I used the stovetop.  Pressure cooking recipes are super easy and totally cost-efficient. It uses fresh ingredients and some canned clams because we live in Ohio.  Be sure to take advantage of my printable recipe option below.

Clam Chowder in the Pressure Cooker Recipe

Ingredients

  • (3) 6.5 oz cans Chopped Clams (drain juice off the meat)
  • 8 oz Clam Juice
  • 2 Cups of Water
  • 1 tablespoon of Vegetable Bouillon
  • 1 medium sweet onion chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup of celery diced
  • 1/2 cup of cream
  • 2 cups of petite potatoes diced into bite size pieces
  • 2 sprigs Fresh Thyme (or 1/4 tsp dried)
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste

Instructions

  1. Open the cans of clams and drain - set clams aside
  2. Turn on the pressure cooker's Sauté function for the onions, celery and garlic. Saute in 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil or use 1 tablespoon of Ghee
  3. Once onion starts turning translucent add Clams and Potatoes
  4. Slowly pour in clam juice and water
  5. Mix in the vegetable bouillon stirring to make sure it dissolves in the water
  6. Slowly stir in the cream and Salt & Pepper
  7. Set to Pressure Cook to soup setting and let the pressure release on its own at the end of cook. On the Power Pressure Cooker it takes about 10 minutes to cook and 5 minutes to release on its own. ENJOY!

I’ve used the Clams a few times now after finding them cheap at Walmart.  Be sure to check your local store for that brand and or order using Instacart.

You know I love snapping photos to demonstrate how to put the recipes together.  Today I used my iphoneX and Amazon photo upload to get the job done.  Seriously considering a video so stay tuned and leave suggestions.

Power Pressure Cooker

This Power Pressure Cooker has become a permanent appliance in my kitchen.  Sometimes on Sunday, I use it to create 3-4 meals to use during the week.

Saute Celery, Onion and Garlic

I use the pressure cooker in a saute mood as a frying pan.  It’s nice to not have too many dishes to do.

Clams in Can

We are in Ohio so the Clams I use are from a can.  I can trust that Bumble Bee brand and it is easy to find at Walmart.

I ran out to the dome greenhouse to get some fresh thyme while the soup was cooking in the Pressure Cooker.
