Beef stew in red wine in the electric pressure cooker

First I seasoned 1.5 pound of stewing beef with sea salt and cracked black pepper. Then on sauté mode I browned the meat in batches with some EVOO. Once all meat was browned, I removed it and sauteéd a medium diced onion. Then deglazed with a simple cabernet. Add garlic and habanero pepper then return…

Custard in the electric pressure cooker.

Simple and easy! I don’t like it sweet, so add more sugar if you do. 3 egg yolks 2 eggs 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp cinnamon (I used freshly grated) 1/8 tsp nutmeg (I used freshly grated) 1 tsp vanilla (or 1/2 bean split and remove the paste) Beat all of these together. Then add…

Spaghetti and meat sauce in the electric pressure cooker

I’ve seen a few recipes for this, but I’m going to change it around a little bit and see what happens. On sauté mode, I browned the onion mixture in oil followed by 2 pounds of a mixture of ground beef with pork. I put a paper towel in to soak up some of the…

Crab legs at home!

Had a craving yesterday and decided to give into it! I started with a few new potatoes, the small ones, and just enough water to cover them. Boil for 10 minutes. Then carefully pile the snow crab on top. Mine were frozen, so I covered it and let it steam for another 10 minutes. I…

Chicken in tomato and thyme sauce

I’m a big fan of chicken thighs, especially for long cooking stews. If you have good knife skills, chop your veg first before you start. If not, chop everything, then start. I put the stove on medium high heat, that’s a 6 for me. Then I put some oil and the chopped onions in the…
