 2. Once the garlic is golden, stir in the kale to evenly coat with oil. Add th e broth and secure the lid and select High pressure. Turn heat to high until pressure cooker reaches full pressure. Reduce temperature to maintain pressure* and set a timer for 2 minutes. When time expires, release pressure by selecting quick pressure release.

3. When the red safety valve drops, remove lid.

 * Unit reaches full pressure when red safety valve pops up and steam releases continuously from the pressure release valve.

Keep a close eye on the pressure cooker when cooking. Some adjustment of temperature may be necessary to maintain pressure.
