Mealthy Tip

If you are following a strict gluten-free diet, be sure to read the label on the barbeque sauce. Many prepared barbeque sauces include soy sauce in the ingredients, which is not gluten free.

Add garlic with the onion for extra flavor.

First time cooking sausage in my pressure cooker and I love it! Perfectly cooked meat without having to babysit a pot of boiling water. I really love the vinegar and sweet flavors the barbecue sauce adds. Perfect for game day or weeknight dinner.

I love summer sausages and I used this recipe with my secret homemade barbecue sauce to make them in my MultiPot. I used shallots and added garlic for extra flavor. Very delicious!
