I’ve had a pressure cooker for over 14 years.
I go back and forth using it a lot, and using it a little.
But one thing is for sure, it’s FAST!
It cooks chicken, pork and beef as if it were slow cooked, very tender.
I always use my pressure cooker for corned beef, other wise I’d be ALL day cooking three corned beefs, what can I say. We like corned beef and if you going to go ahead and made all the trimmings for the meal, you might as well have plenty of beef to go with it. I’ve made Corned Beef Dinner and Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup if you want to see them.
I keep hearing that pressure cookers are coming back. We’ll see, most people I know don’t use one, but I love it.
