Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Pressure-cooker pot roast

    • Rinshin on November 02, 2018

      Added a small amount of tomato paste, anchovy paste and fish sauce. This made one of the best tasting pot roast. Loved the smooth texture and rich taste of the sauce from the pureed vegetables. The taste was so well rounded and I love to use this similar method when making beef stew.
