You will start with the lid off of your pressure cooker. Add butter and heat to high or brown until melted and sizzling. If you are going to use diced onion you can add it now and saute until translucent.
Add your broccoli florets, carrots, chicken stock, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper to the pressure cooker pot. Put the lid on securely and set for 5 minutes on high.
Perform a quick steam release to release the pressure from the cooker.
Stir in the heavy cream and the sharp cheddar cheese.
This recipe was made using an electric pressure cooker. If you are using a traditional pressure cooker you may have to adjust cooking times.
