Guys, you must have seen my updates on Social Media regarding my first ever experience with this Pressure Cooker. I was quite nervous to say the least…
I was asked to develop a few recipes using the Philips Electric Pressure Cooker, a beautiful tech savvy device, that takes pressure cooking to a completely new level.
This machine is pretty easy to use, despite my paranoia about blowing up my kitchen. Luckily, that didn’t happen and I am now convinced that every one needs one of these beauties in their kitchen.
To start – the function of the Philips Electronic Pressure Cooker are designed to use pressure inside the pot to cook your food in mere minutes. I had my oxtail in for about 38 minutes – and it simply fell off the bone. How even?
It has a super cool ‘keep warm’ feature – so when the pressure cooking time has elapsed, the machine keeps the food warm until serving.
The device has a control panel that indicates how the machine switches from heating to pressure cooking – perfect to keep the paranoia at bay. Unlike other older, conventional pressure cookers, this machine has a setting for ‘bake’ as well. I never thought of baking in a pressure cooker, it sure is something I still need to try.
Think comforting, meaty stews and soups – ready in less that 40 minutes. No more cooking and roasting meats for hours that’s normally left for Sunday lunch, right?
This Electric Pressure Cooker will ensure scrumptious meals that can be served to the crowds – even on weekdays!!
So back to the recipe. I decided to cook oxtail because, who doesn’t love tender, sweet and sticky oxtail?
One thing I do suggest is to have lots of fluids that cover the meat to ensure a bit of saucy goodness at the end of the day.
I used a combination of tinned tomatoes, red wine and extra beef stock for that and it came out perfect!
The Philips Electric Pressure Cooker is an absolute gem and I can’t wait to try more recipes. It has a two year guarantee and comes with a soup ladle, rice spoon and measuring cup. Go check them out on twitter and on the interwebz. So, who loves cooking with Pressure Cookers? Give me your best recipes below!
