If you have an electric pressure cooker you won't need to reduce the heat to stabilise pressure,your cooker will automatically stabilise itself. Always check with the manufacturer's instructionsbefore using. You can serve this dish with wide egg noodles or mashed potatoes instead of thedumplings, if you prefer. If you like a smoky flavour, try smoked paprika instead of sweet.Recipe suitable to freeze.
