- The Fam
Promise me something. Promise that you won’t give up on the idea of whole food, that’s delicious, homemade and made in a quarter of the time. Promise you won’t get scared and run off after your read these two words…
It’s really not a scary thing! Maybe I can convince you. Are you interested? Would you read more? I have been meaning to write a pressure cooker series. We bought ours a couple of years ago when we completly failed at trying to cook beans at a high elevation. We reasearched and found out that the only way to do it was to use a pressure cooker. It’s is now hard for me to eat canned refried beans because they are so very yummy homemade and so very easy.
I planned to start with beans but here is an impromptu session. We’ve been experimenting a little bit with the pressure cooker and tonight we made some pulled pork that was delicious and made it in less than an hour. I thought I would share the experience.
Pulled Pork with a Pressure Cooker
1. First, I seared a pork roast in the pressure cooker for a couple of minutes on each side and then added two cups of beef broth to the pot. Next, I popped on the lid and locked it in place. I brought the pressure cooker up to pressure over high heat. The pressure builds up inside and then starts to regulate it self by releasing some steam out the regulator. This is when I knew it was up to pressure I could turn it down to medium-low heat and step back for 40 minutes.
2. After 40 minutes I turned the heat off, released the steam that was built up inside (lifting the regulator with a fork), and removed the lid after it unlocked. I pulled the roast apart into medium sized pieces and then locked the lid back into place.
3. Next, I brought the pressure cooker back up to pressure for 10 more minutes. Then released the pressure again and dumped everything, meat and meat juice, into a bowl. Now you can pull the pork with two forks. Ta Da! It was delicious and so fast.
While I was pulling the pork I had added some potatoes to the pressure cooker with some water to see if I could make some fast mashed potatoes. Seven minutes later, the potatoes were almost too mushy. I’m loving this.
What do you guys think? Anyone willing to try? Questions?
