Pressure Cooker Love


Pressure cookers tend to be known as nostalgic cookware. However, in the days of trying to make meals with limited preparation time, this gadget is a must have.

I know that people tend to use slow cookers in order to prepare meals in advance. This process often involves some piece of meat that is slow cooked, over a number of hours, so that it is tender and delicious.

In contrast, pressure cookers cook meat (and other foods) extremely quickly to a tender state. The ingredients are cooked in a pressurized environment, so that rapid cooking can be achieved. The beauty of cooking using a pressure cooker is that it allows for all of the ingredients to be placed in one pot, with a minimal amount of liquid required.

Here is a an example of chicken, prepared in the pressure cooker, for 25 minutes, from frozen.

Here is another example of stewing beef, cooked in a pressure cooker, for approximately 30 minutes.

Below is example of shredded beef prepared by using a pressure cooker.

Try finding a pressure cooker to add to your collection of cookware. I'm sure you'll find plenty of uses for it in your daily lives. It's not just for grandmothers.
