So anyway... I said I was going to make it again
How can you not love something that takes 1/5 the time? I compare it to a slow cooker, but waaaay faster. Not like slow cooking something in the oven, but a moist, well flavored meal like you would get slow cooking one all day.
All except the beans. Gotta use the stove for something.
I flaked the pork so you can see how tender it was. And the bone on this country rib fell off, but it still had some meat on it, so it was worth putting on the plate, too
Now I need to turn that juice into gravy!

Now you're cookin', pacanis. Don'tcha just love your pressure cooker? I made an awesome vegetable beef soup on Friday in the pressure cooker. Yum, yum, double yum.

Gonna do my corned beef in it for St. Pat's Day, too!!!

Katie - there's always that moment when I first remove the lid when making corned beef that my heart drops a bit seeing how much it shrank!

I DO love it!
Cooking with something that can blow up in your face adds a whole new element to fixin' dinner.
Really, this thing is great. I'm going to have to keep trying new things to do. Maybe that chicken recipe that came with it that turns into a soup might be next.
We have a slow cooker forum..... we need a pressure cooker forum for some specific recipes

Oh, boy, ain't that the truth?! I keep buying bigger and bigger and bigger ones but - dad blast it - it still happens. Oh, what a shame, I still have a bunch of corned beef.

But, crap and a half, I have to wait a week for that yummy taste.

Hey, what's worse, my younger sister is going to be in Blarney, Ireland on St. Patrick's Day. Doggone it!

I haven't had corned beef in ages.
I don't know how my mother cooked it, but I know she didn't have a PC.
Geez. And I'm half Irish.

At least I eat a lot of potatoes

I know that this is a somewhat old post, but it was of interest to me. My brother has had a digital pc for 2 yrs. and I have wanted one for that long. We ate supper with him the other night and he had cooked a beef roast and it was delicious. So tender. I said I have got to get me one. So my dh said go ahead and buy one. Got it today. Have not used it because ups brought it so late in the day. I am anxious to try it, but a little nervous. You know how it is when your not familiar with controls like that. I bought a roast today and plan to use it tomorrow. The only thing that I didn't like was that it is teflon coated. Even though I knew it was nonstick, I guess I thought it was different from that . I will really have to be careful not to scratch it. Also, do you use the rack all the time in yours? Faye

Hi, Faye. Does "digital" mean the pressure cooker is electric rather than stove-top? If it is electric, I can't really offer an opinion about using it. I have a stove-top Kuhn Rikon that I love. No Teflon on mine so, again, no help to you.

However, once you "get in the groove" using your pressure cooker, you'll love it. Enjoy!

bring up this old post all you want. It's mine.
I have plenty of plastic-like utensils to use with mine and picked up some silicone (or something) coated tongs. Treat non-stick well and it will treat you well. I've had no problem with mine and can't believe how easy it cleans. Stuff doesn't stick with steam cooking.
I have yet to use the metal rack that came with it. I use the veggies as a "rack" to keep the meat off the bottom.

You will really like it. I wouldn't call it an everyday item by any means, but I would replace it in a heartbeat when the time comes. I love the fact that it's digital and can basically operate itself.
