  1. Put 1 tablespoon of the butter into the  cooking pot of the Cuisinart® Pressure Cooker. Select Sauté. Once butter melts, stir in the potatoes, garlic and salt. Sauté so that the butter coats all the potatoes and the garlic softens and becomes aromatic, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the broth and secure the lid. Select High Pressure. Set the time for 5 minutes. When the audible beep sounds, use Quick Pressure Release.
  2. Once pressure is released completely, red indicator will drop. Remove lid and strain potatoes. Toss with remaining butter and chopped herbs. Serve immediately.
