I finally bought myself a pressure cooker — this pressure cooker, to be precise — and I think I’m in love. I’d hesitated for a long time, because I had grim memories of the old electric one my Mom used to have. I was always certain that it was going to explode. The new models, however, are stable and the only sound they make is the hiss of steam.
A pressure cooker is the perfect thing for me: it accommodates my invariable habit of procrastinating until the very last minute before cooking dinner, the cooking magic all takes place in one pot, and the food is tender and flavorful. Clean-up’s easy too.
I’m expecting the America’s Test Kitchen Pressure Cooker Perfection cookbook in the mail any day now. Their recipes are idiot-proof, easy, and tasty, which is why America’s Test Kitchen is always my cookbook company of choice.
Still, the Test Kitchen recipes do tend to be similarly flavored. You can tell that there’s a single, overriding master palate in that kitchen. I wouldn’t mind a little variety. So, my question (as you’ve gathered from this post title) is: Do you have any favorite pressure cooker recipe you’d like to share?
