    Default Pressure Cooker Recipes

    I have finally taken the plunge and bought one of these exploding, kitchen destroying thingies. OH thought it would be a good idea for processing passata and the like.

    So what else do you use them for - stock, soup, stews, Christmas puds ...?

    Don't have one anymore but they are good for Christmas puds, steamed puddings and for sterilizing in jars. I found that meals cooked in them all tasted the same but I suppose stock would be alright.

    Pressure cooker and slow cooker in one, we use it all the time. Curries, soups, stews, pie fillings, roasts etc

    The roasts, rustic cut root veg and onions roast in and stock pressure the slow cook for a few hours, take out finish in oven for 10-15 min or pork rub salt on skin and grill. Stick blend stock abd reduce on stove in saucepan for gravy

    Personally I'd have to disagree with roilet but each to their own.

    Ohhh pork ribs fresh in sticky sauce pressure cook 45-60 mins take out allow to dry off slightly and then on barby with the sauce reduction as a basting sauce nom nom nom

    Never test the depth of the water with both feet

    The only reason people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory....

    Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.

    Bren, I still have not plucked up the courage to test mine out.

    It's been slow cooker week this week (mixed bean chilli with dark chocolate mmmmmm).

    I was planning to use mine for all sorts, once I get over the initial nerves.
    While wearing your night clothes, plant cucumbers on the 1st May before the sun comes up, and they will not be attacked by bugs.

    Thanks for the link, Bren - I'd forgotten about that thread!

    I confess the thing is still packed in the box at the moment. Nerves here too.

    Once you get used to the scary sounding hiss noise you'll both be fine
