Love My Pressure Cooker! Love This Book!
on March 20, 2014
I've had my pressure cooker for about a year now and I LOVE it. The Lorna Sass books have been my teachers.
The recipe for Coq au Vin that you'll find in "Cooking Under Pressure" is worth buying the book. Everything I've made, from all three books (Cooking Under Pressure, Pressure Perfect, and Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure), has been wonderful. I am, finally, prompted to write a review by my latest success, Corned Beef with Cabbage and Potatoes. I had people coming for a St. Patrick's Day dinner and I got a late start... No problem! The recipe took only an hour for prep and cooking time. The dinner was a great success. Everyone asked for seconds (even the children) and my husband declared it the best corned beef dinner he'd ever had. Thank you, Lorna Sass!
(This recipe is in the book "Pressure Perfect" on page 104.)
A final note, since falling in love with the pressure cooker, my slow cooker has been exiled to the garage. I never use it. The flavor produced in the pressure cooker seems to be so much better. I don't know why.
Enjoy your pressure cooker! And, please, do yourself a favor and try the Coq au Vin.
