For a stove-top cookers, bring up to pressure over medium-high heat; reduce heat enough to maintain steady (but not excessive) pressure. Cook 35 minutes. Remove from heat. For both models, let stand 15 minutes to release pressure naturally. Release any remaining pressure. Open lid carefully. Add sausage; heat through. Season with salt and pepper.
