      You nonces. Those spices arent remotely korean. Fusion maybe but you were so off and ox tail is only used for soup.

      Dear Ben and James @Sortedfood, when using pressure cooker you have to wait for it to "steam/whistle" then decrease the temperature of the hob to maintain the steam/temperature, then start timing on that signal. So pork can be tender within 30mins from that hissing sound, then oxtail with bones will last for 45-1 hour. I hope this helps

    Clearly James doesn't understand what it's like to be a working mom if he doesn't understand why people don't have 15-20 minutes to cook potatoes.

    I think the main thing about the cheesecake is that unlike regular cheescake it doesn't have that gross goblin skin texture on the surface of the cake. It works well with coconut pie too. Puddings or anything you don't want to taste like a balloon with custard inside It might not be the thing for a people who invented clotted cream. Which is basically burned condensed milk. Just use whip cream. DX
    I mean you need a crust on pie or steak, you don't need a skin on your pudding

    The logic behind it for me is not every one has an oven, but a lot of people have stove top type things. I'm more in love with the no bake cheese cake

    Every kitchen in India has a pressure cooker. You gotta buy the ones which whistles automatically when pressure is high. In India we dont use timer but number of whistles 😋

    Cooking cakes in a pressure cooker is an absolute Indian aunty thing. It's rare to have an oven in an Indian middle class home, but nearly all of us have a pressure cooker ( lentils/daal being the everyday fare that's cooked in it). I remember cooking my first few cakes in a pressure cooker before begging my parents to get an oven.

    I am genuinely scared of pressure pots. I have seen too many pictures and videos where that stuff just exploded and made either a mess or, in a worse case scenerio, a hole into the ceiling. However, I reckon that if I need to choose whether I spend 4 to 5 hours to make good beef broth or whether I overcome my fear and be done in 2 hours, I would choose the latter :-D

    My mom used a pressure cooker every day to make beans, necessary if you don't want to bother with soaking them or cooking for hours. But I'm Cuban and in Cuba it ain't dinner without black beans and rice lol.

    Test an instant pot. Mushy peas or split pea soup with a ham bone. Best chicken stock ever. Best bone stock ever. Best ribs (finished 5 min broiler).

    Oxtail is best boiled 30 min pressure cooked, or on stove, change water, season cook 35 min in instant pot. In Hawaii it’s $12 a pound, we don’t fuck around with our oxtail.

    I think the logic for the cheesecake in the pressure cooker is that you reduce the chances of the top from cracking and drying out

  • fasdr

    one of mine all time favorite pressure cooker recipes is rabbit stew..... chunk the rabbit into single portion bits than fry them in the pressure cooker itself (lid off) with a bit of oil or fat (your choice) than add chunked carrot big pieces of yellow onion when they get a bit of color add some flower and fry it off to get the raw taste out than add big chunks of potato and halved garlic bulbs or whole cloves (personal choice) top of with 1 or 2 glasses of good drinking red wine than add water to cover everything and spoon full (table or tea spoon, leveled, depending on how peppery you want it) of whole black peppercorns cover an cook for 30-40-45 mins after pressure builds up and be amazed at the awesomeness that is (also serves real good with crispy toast to dip ^_^)

    I use mine for 60 minute stock - same ingredients as for traditional method , but just cook for 60 minutes not 4 hours , then sieve and reduce to preference. Worth the entrance fee for that recipe alone ( i do 2 stocks - chicken ( chicken carcasses and trotter) and beef - marrow bones and onions carrots celery

    The Cheesecake recipe seems like a British invention, by way of steamed puddings. Then again, I feel like most Brits who have access to a hob (am I using that word correctly?) also have access to an oven. Maybe... Asia? In a lot of Asian countries, a stove-top is common but an oven is not.
    Either way, I think you guys are onto something when suggesting that this particular approach isn't about saving time but instead making some recipe accessible to people who don't have an oven.

    The risotto and the lintels is making me consider buying a pressure cooker.

  • Jay Sopariwala

    In india people make most of their lentils in a pressure cooker, Also we prefer to let most of the items let out air naturally because that is very much similar to resting your meat; Letting the temperature and pressure inside decrease slowly and letting it absorb the flavours. Please brown your onions if you ever make that dish again!!! It will help the onions dissolve and give our it's core taste rather than the outer strong taste.

    I cook risotto for 1 minute after it reaches full pressure. Not too much liquid, just covering the rice. I then turn it off and let it stew for another ten minutes (while watching TV and drinking wine) then open. Taste for seasoning and how well the rice is done. If it's under then cook opened and stirring for a couple of minutes. So much quicker and easier than stirring for 20+ minutes.

    If you like pressure cookers, you will probably love electric pressure cookers like the Instapot. It takes away some of the chance for over cooking.
