Notes about Recipes in this book

  • White bean and chorizo soup

    • Jejune on November 26, 2013

      This is a very simple recipe, but extremely tasty! A family favourite in our house.

  • Braised lamb shoulder with borlotti beans

    • RogerP on July 04, 2021

      I think the full can of tomatoes suggested would be overpowering; better with less or with fresh tomatoes. Add as little water as you can get away with: the dish produces too much sauce.

  • Corned beef

    • digifish_books on May 21, 2015

      I used a 1.4 kg piece of reduced-salt ('heart smart') corned silverside with approx. 2.5L of water to just cover the beef in my 8L pressure cooker. As the recipe is for a 6L cooker with 1.5L of water I should probably have increased the amount of veg and vinegar, herbs, etc. to allow for extra water. I did add 4 cloves, which were not in the recipe. The cooking times were spot on - 45 mins. once up to pressure (low-moderate heat), then 15 mins. standing after pressure release. The beef was lovely, served simply with mash, steamed greens and horseradish cream.

Publishers Text

Most of us remember our mothers or grandmothers cooking in a pressure cooker - it always seemed to have a slight edge of danger. Now with new, modern pressure cookers, both stove-top and electric, the danger may have diminished, but the speed and convenience that once made them such a kitchen necessity is being rediscovered. Most foods cook in about a third of the time of conventional cooking methods and the dishes that are produced are tender and luscious. Soups, stews, curries, pie fillings, and steamed puddings all cook beautifully in a pressure cooker and, best of all -- we've triple-tested them to make sure the recipes are foolproof.
