  • After Mark's Blog......

    I cracked out the pressure cooker tonight. That stupid thing has sat in my cupboard for 9 years and I think I have used it like 3 times. I never knew what to do with it. Soooooo I am trying a chicken stew...if it comes out good I will add it to my blog. Has anyone tried the pressure cooker yet?

      Well I will let you know how it goes. They are rather inexpensive, I think I got this as a gift though at my wedding shower. I begged the person to give me some recipes for it....and she never did....

        I have to admit the part that was intimidating was really the timing of the cooking...how long do you let it blow its top and Mark pretty much answered that so the fear factor is gone, it is just a little loud, it is steaming away right now.

          I love mine. great for tough hunks of meat that you don't want to wait on the crock pot for.

            I like my pressure cooker and I don't use it as much as I probably should. Sure is good for quick cooking shitty cuts of meat though.

                I use mine some. Usually stew. Sometimes artichokes.

                  I just got inspired by the post too: I bought a pressure cooker MONTHS ago and finally used it for the first time tonight. I think I would describe it as magical elves combined with a steam locomotive. I made the beef stew, and it turned out amazing. The beef stew meat was tender and delicious, and the veggies were still recognizable, as opposed to gloppy. The only thing I would change is maybe adding a thickener- arrowroot or coconut flour- at the end, so the liquid is more like gravy.

                  Just don't freak out: the pressure cooker is pretty loud when it is in action.

                    I just read a blog post about making chicken stock in one hour with a pressure cooker. Now it's on my appliance wish list! lol Definitely let us know how your stew turns out!

                      I use mine mainly for chicken stock. But only the times I'm not making it in the slow cooker! Basically, if I have a LOT of chicken bones / carcases, it's the slow cooker. If there aren't many bones, pressure cooker.

                      I do like the way tough meat tenderises quickly, but I have yet to manage a stew in the PC which doesn't seem to have too much thin liquid rather than a thick delicious sauce.

                        I read somewhere (thought it was paleohacks but I don't see it there now) that pressure cookers destroy nutrients. Not true?

                        Also, the "crock" (aka liner) in my crockpot developed a crack -- less than a year old but of course I threw out the receipt long ago. I tried to patch it but it kept developing offshoots; must be some kind of flaw in the composition I suppose.

                        I'm debating whether to replace the crock (which from Crock Pot plus shipping equals the original cost of the whole thing )or get something different, possibly a pressure cooker... Any thoughts on which is better, or is it useful to have both?

                          I use it all the time. It's an indispensable gadget in an Indian kitchen. I love cooking goat meat i it.

                              I have one too and have never tried it either because I was intimidated by it. I think I may have to google some recipes and see how it goes. Thanks for the reminder.
