there have been a couple of threads recently about slow cookers/crock pots & i swear by mine.fill it up in the morning,come home from work to a hot meal..fab!but,in some respects i prefer my pressure cooker.prepare the ingredients in the morning,as you would for slow cooking,come home at night,in the cooker....15-20 mins later hot meal.
personally i prefer the pressure cooker because i think the pc has the edge on flavour compared to the same dish in a sc,a 140 watt sc on for 6 hours uses more than twice the power that a pc on a 1200watt hob plate for 20 mins uses & my pressure cooker helped me end a relationship with a clingy girlfriend
!what? i hear you ask(well i would if anyone was reading this drivel
!)did you whack her with it? no.we were out shopping,she was nagging to move in,i wanted a pressure cooker,she kept pointing at the big family size ones,i picked up the small model that was described as"ideal for one" & said "this'll do fine" ahh well....!!
my fav pressure cooker meals are:
(a taste from my childhood-bolas & i still reminisce about it) neck end of lamb(lots of bone,lots of fat=lots of flavour),big chunks of potato,carrot & onion,chicken stock,salt,lots of ground black pepper & if you want to be cheffy some fresh thyme too.
(well it tastes a bit like it!) thick cut pork shoulder steaks,lemon juice,chopped garlic,greek oregano,chopped parsley,olive oil,red wine vinegar,salt,ground black pepper,chicken stock
what do you cook in your's
