• For a 3-quart cooker, use 1 cup water but halve the remaining ingredients.
• For an 8-quart cooker, you must use 2 cups water and increase the remaining ingredients by 50 percent—or simply increase the water to 2 cups (while keeping the stated amounts of the other ingredients).
• Serve the skewers with salsa verde, regular salsa, or even barbecue sauce for dipping.
• Make these skewers ahead of time. Cook them through step 4, then cool for a few minutes with the pot open. Use kitchen tongs to remove the trivet underneath them, then store the skewers (and meat) right in the steaming medium. Cool for 20 minutes, then remove the insert from the machine, cover the insert with plastic wrap, and store it in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Grill the skewers as extra minute or so to warm them up.
