To make pressure cooker dolma, you need a good knife, meat thermometer, tongs, and an Instant Pot. The meat thermometer is critical if you want to be certain the meats were cooked to a safe temperature.
If you liked my Kabak Dolmasi Stuffed Zucchini recipe, you are going to love my Electric Pressure Cooker Stuffed Zucchini recipe. Of course, the original recipe is great but this one is even better because you can prep it and forget it. Since I was using the electric pressure cooker pan, I used a potato to wedge the stuffed zucchini in place. While potato is not traditionally part of this dish, it sure made it more delicious.
Place layer of bones in pressure cooker and cover with sliced tomatoes and the whole garlic. Arrange rolls side by side in layers on the tomatoes. Sprinkle with salt and lemon juice. Add water. Cook under pressure 12 minutes. Simmer uncovered to reduce sauce. Mix one half cup of the sauce with crushed garlic and mint. Sprinkle this over the mahshi and simmer a few more minutes to enhance flavor. Remove mahshi carefully from cooking pan. Cool fingers in cold water to facilitate handling the hot rolls. Arrange on platter. Serve hot with bowl of the sauce.
If you do not have a pressure cooker you can do as follows; Prepare as above. Arrange mahshi over layer of bones and sliced tomatoes. When all has been added, press down firmly with palm of the hand. Add water to cover, salt, and cook about an hour, or until leaves are tender and the stuffing is well cooked. Sprinkle with lemon juice, minced garlic and dried mint. Simmer few more minutes. For this recipe I would recommend using a pressure cooker, I think they come out much better!!
In addition to that, I am using a pressure cooker since this can help cook this Lebanese Kousa faster. You can use an ordinary cooking pot, but it will take at least 1 hour just to cook the stuffed zucchini.
Seal the pressure cooker and cook on high heat. As soon as the pressure cooker begins to steam and whistle, lower the heat to medium and set a timer for 25 minutes. Once it is done, turn off the heat and let the steam escape naturally.
Pour the beef broth on top of the cabbage rolls until almost fully covered. Cover the pressure cooker and cook on high heat. Once the pressure cooker begins to steam (about 5-7 minutes), lower the heat to medium and set a timer for 12 minutes. Let steam release naturally once done.
My hint for you is instead of pressure cooking the cabbage first I put it in the freezer whole, in a plastic bag. Wait a few weeks and remove about two days before you want to use it. After it defrosts the leaves are soft and pliable. I find them much easier to work with than cooked ones!
I would brown the cabbage rolls first in the pressure cooker on the Saute/Brown setting, then I would not place the rack in nor would I add the water. I think that will enhance the flavor of the rolls. I would also sometimes make a mushroom gravy. My mother always browned them and served them with the mushroom gravy
I am interested in knowing why you boil the cabbage leaves, and would you get the same result if you steamed 1/2 cabbage in the pressure cooker? Just wondering if there is a reason. I want to make them in a few days and if I could steam the 1/2 head in the pressure cooker, how long would you do it. Thanks. Mary
Why would you not speed up the process by boiling and softening the cabbage first in the pressure cooker. Then you can remove the core. Would that work? Seems this would avoid the routine boiling of the cabbage and soften up the cabbage enough for the core to be easily removed?
I received a pressure cooker for Christmas and appreciate the recipe and good tips. For those of you who are familiar with using a pressure cooker, could I add potatoes and carrots in with cabbage rolls? This is definitely one of the first recipes I will try with my cooker. Thank You
I had never made cabbage rolls before. I cant imagine having to cook them the traditional way. I have only recently invested in a pressure cooker and am really blown away with how much time is freed up without sacrificing flavor. I would prefer more flavor in the filling (but that can easily be modified :-)) but we loved them and I am definitely going to check out other recipes on this site! I also love the tips on freezing the cabbage head instead of boiling it, and freezing the rolls uncooked for future use.
My stuffed cabbage is very similar to yours. But did you know that you can make ahead and freeze the cabbage rolls. DO NOT cook first before freezing. I make about 60 rolls at a time. I then freeze the cabbage rolls. I freeze them on a cookie sheet until hard. I then pack them into freezer bags. I seal the bags and freeze until I need them. When I need them, I remove what I need and make the sauce and then cook. I then cook mine in the oven. I will try your pressure cooker method the next time I cook some cabbage rolls. I also do this with meat loaf. I make about 5 and freeze them on a cookie sheet and when I am ready for meat loaf, I pull as many as needed from the freezer and cook in the oven. Probably could do the same in the pressure cooker. I will try it the next time I make meat loaf.
I was hoping somebody would have advice about freezing! I just got my electric pressure cooker, I found some recipes on Pinterest to prepare ahead and freeze, would it be necessary to thaw the cabbage rolls or could I put them in the pressure cooker frozen?

Egyptians have kept pigeons, also known as squab, since ancient times, and their mud brick pigeon lofts dot the skyline up and down the Nile. One of their favorite ways of serving pigeon is stuffed with cracked wheat and gently braised as hamam mahshi (ha-MAM mah-SHEE).
Every recipe involves some method of stacking the rolled leaves in a pot and covering with a flavorful broth. I have experimented so much with broths, meat on the bottom, potatoes on the bottom, vines on the bottom, pressure cooking, simmering with a weight on top, and baking in the oven. Being an avid mahshy eater, from a variety of homes and regions, I can assure you I have a fairly good summary for impeccable results. They are all simply delicious methods, but here is my favorite method and combination of strategies:
If you've never tried duck stock or duck broth, this instant pot duck stock recipe is for you! I never thought to make duck stock until I started cooking Egyptian food. This rich and flavorful broth is used for mahshi crumb (vegetarian stuffed cabbage leaves) and kolkas taro root stew with garlic and cilantro. This duck broth can be eaten as soup. There are so many ways it can be used!
Stock is cooked at a lower temperature for a longer period of time whereas a broth is cooked over a shorter period of time at a higher temperature. A stock has a deeper and richer flavor than a broth. This recipe is a cross between stock and broth because it's cooked at a high temperature under pressure (if using a pressure cooker). It's the middle ground perfect combination I've perfected over the last year.
The star flavours in this dish are the white beans (obviously), the meat, the onions and the tomato sauce. It's a really simple dish but when the ingredients all simmer together, it's really delicious. The white beans are so nutritious and pack a lot of protein, and they have such a deep umami flavour. If I'm using dry beans, I typically use my Instant Pot to cut down cooking time, or you can use any pressure cooker. This is how it goes:
You can definitely use canned beans in this Fasolia recipe. Simply rinse them out and add them to the pot after you follow the same recipe steps, but you won't need to cook them for long. They will need about 30 minutes to simmer. I do this a lot if I've forgotten to soak the beans! And sometimes you just need a quick meal on the table - I totally get it. This would also be a good solution if you don't have a pressure cooker.
If you have an Instant Pot or pressure cooker, I do recommend trying it with the dry beans, they really do taste better in my opinion, and the soaking takes 2 minutes if you remember to do it the night before.
Hi Vanessa! Yes so the broth will start off with water but because we are pressure cooking the meat with water as well as the beans, we are essentially creating a meat broth ? Hope that makes sense!
Koosa are very easy to hollow out and stuff. Be sure to save the innards of the koosa and sautee it with some seasoning and serve it as a side dish with your mahshi.This dish is a bit of work,with all the halowing and stuffing but a delicious and tasty dish.
Stuffed vegetable dishes have been a part of Middle Eastern cuisine for centuries.[better source needed] Recipes for stuffed eggplant have been found in Medieval Arabic cookbooks and, in Ancient Greek cuisine, fig leaves stuffed with sweetened cheese were called thrion. The word dolma, of Turkish origin, means "something stuffed" or "filled". (A Turkish share taxi is called a dolmuş for similar reasons). In some of the former Ottoman countries, native names have been retained or have blended with Turkish language terms, for example, in the Arab states of the Persian Gulf and Damascus, stuffed leaves are called mahshi yabraq or mahshi brag, a combination of the Turkish word for leaf (yaprak) and the Arabic term for stuffed (mahshi).
