  1. Add all of the ingredients to the pressure cooker pot and stir well.
  2. Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position. Cook at high pressure for 5 minutes.
  3. When cooking is complete, use a natural release for 5 minutes and then release any remaining pressure. If liquid sprays while releasing the pressure, quickly turn the valve to the sealed position and wait 5 more minutes.
  4. Stir well.  The sauce will thicken further as it cools.
  5. Serve warm or chilled.
  6. Can be made up to a week in advance and stored in the fridge. Freezes very well.
