Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 7 russet potatoes, peeled and quartered (total weight = 2.4 pounds)
  • 1 2/3 teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
  • 1/3 teaspoon black pepper (or more to taste)
  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/4 cup milk (More or less, according to your texture preference. I used 2%)

Instructions

  1. Peel and quarter the potatoes.

  2. Place the potatoes on a steamer rack, and add 1 cup water to the pressure cooker.

  3. Cook on manual high pressure for 8 minutes.

  4. Quick release the pressure. Pro tip: use a kitchen towel over the vent to prevent starchy water from spewing everywhere.

  5. Transfer the potatoes to a large mixing bowl, and add the butter, salt, pepper and part of the milk.

  6. Mash with a potato masher, and add more milk slowly, until you reach your desired consistency.

  7. Optional: for extra creamy, smooth potatoes, use a hand mixer for a minute or so.
