Pressure Cooking

Lindsay over at theLeanGreen peaked my curiosity when she posted about making, preparing, and freezing beans after she cooked them in her pressure cooker.  I researched the concept and pretty much came to the conclusion I had to have this in my kitchen, and "Pressy" and I are like this....

 Isn't she pretty.  First meal cooked...pork loin....

In the first picture the pork loin is browning a bit first, and then all I had to do, put some liquid in the bottom, lock the top, and presto, bamo, kazam, 20 minutes later(while we were playing outside) we had a juicy, tender pork loin waiting for us. (I don't really eat meat, except for chicken and fish, just doesn't work with my stomach , but I sampled and thought it was so good.)

I have only started on my pressure cooking journey. On the list.... black beans to cook and freeze.... and chicken breasts in for Sunday meal prep. I will be documenting more of my pressurized journey and recipes so stay tuned!

F.Y.I...I went with the Cuisinart because of the timing feature on it, and the ease of which it operates..and it helped that I also had a gift card and a coupon for our local outlet mall store...
