"The Pressure Cookbook" makes a great maiden voyage guide for those who want to learn how to use this specialized cooking vessel. The instructions are well-written and easy to follow. On the other hand, the flavors produced in the recipes are not overly simplified. Someone new to using a pressure cooker won't feel like you've sent your taste buds back to kindergarten.
The specific combination of manageable techniques and sophisticated flavors really boosts the value of this lovely little book. The images are inspiring and helpful for the completed dish. I did, however, wish my version of the "Braised Chicken in Lemon-Basil Sauce" got the gorgeous color in the photo. I'm still working on matching that color. Of course the flavor was so great no one who tested the first batch found it lacking in any way. With the lemon slices cooked down tender while retaining the enlightened lemon flavor, any leftover lemon bits were fished out and devoured.
Another favorite was the "Moroccan-Style Tomato-Rice Soup." The dish would be a fabulous, fast (only 9 minutes of cooking time) meal when fresh tomatoes reach over abundance. Keep the kitchen cool with this short-order dinner. The earthy spices play against naturally acidic tomatoes. The combination resulting clears your palate and inspires just one more bite, then another and another. My husband wished for some lamb to accompany the soup--and we still finished all about ½ cup of the recipe!Read more ›
My husband and I have been using this cook book for approximately a year with our electric pressure cooker and have loved every dish. In fact, this is our go-to cookbook/dinner planner during the winter months.
We have made beef stroganoff, bolognese sauce, pot roast (one of our faves), spanish pork chops, ginger glazed chicken, risotto, potatoes, Texas style chili, basil lemon chicken, Beer braised chicken thighs and many others. The pot roast is delectable and the Risotto is just so easy we've made it at least half a dozen times.
We actually take a look in this book as if it was a menu when deciding what to do for dinner and then shop for the recipe. The general information about pressure cookers in the beginning pages was also helpful.
This was the first pressure cooker cook book we had and still the one we use, though i've purchased others on Amazon. The other books were good when i made a cheesecake as this book does not contain info about desserts. Using the pressure cooker for desserts is a bonus for us - not the primary function so we don't consider that a draw back.
We are so happy with the results that we are excited when selecting an untried recipe because of how consistent the results are.
highly recommend it!
P.S. - the kids love this food too! (age 7 & 9)
