There was a time when I feared a pressure cooker. Then, as our schedule became more and more demanding and time in the kitchen less and less, I came to discover the pressure cooker as a means of getting my family a good meal in little time. It’s an indispensable cooking method for busy moms. Most foods cook in one-third of the time of conventional ovens. It saves time and energy without compromising the quality of the meal.
Cinda Chavich makes the pressure cooker an even more enticing cooking method with her incredible variety of recipes featuring everything from everyday meals to dishes for entertaining. Her new book 225 Best Pressure Cooker Recipes includes vegetarian options. Elegance delivered to the table with little effort with recipes like a hands-free risotto cooked to creamy perfection in six minutes. Discover almost-instant homemade stocks and broths, or create a tender beef and red wine stew cooked in half an our–and you can use those inexpensive cuts of meat that usually require long, slow cooking with stellar results. I love using mine to cook our favorite Cuban Black Beans recipe.
Tucked in the pages of 225 Best Pressure Cooker Recipes food comes to life with recipes like:
- Wild Mushroom and Potato Bisque
- Cajun Black Bean and Sausage Gumbo
- Beef Short Ribs in Barbecue Sauce
- Kansas City Pulled Pork Butt
- Risotto with Mushrooms and Shrimp
- Orange Espresso Cheesecake
The book also offers tips and information from pressure cooking essentials and tips for preparing beans and making stocks to table of cooking times for vegetables, fruit, mean and poultry.
This is a great book for anyone experienced with or just beginning to discover cooking with a pressure cooker.
