Thread: Pressure Cooker meals

    Re: Pressure Cooker meals

    I like the idea of the Pressure Cooker, and will be bringing mine for those times when Im on the road, stopping overnight and want a really good home made dinner quick.......

    But what about a crock Pot??

    For those times when Im going to be put up for a few days.... I was at WalMart the other day and they have a very small 1.5 Quart Crock Pot. Throw a couple of chicken thighs in with a potato and a few carrots and 7 or 8 hours later when I get back from riding, dinner is ready!..........

    I may do this....

    John .... I sure wouldn't want to leave any type food cooking, unattended at a campsite!

    Any type of 4 legged animal (wild, or domesticated) will be brought into camp by the smell and upon seeing an unattended camp will only grow brazen and help themselves. This creates not only a mess to your campsite and a lost meal, but it also encourages wildlife to come into camp (becoming habituated) for an easy meal, since they have now lost their fear of man and poses a real danger to other campers (currently in the campground and future campers) and will eventually lead to the animal being put down as a nuisance bear/animal, because of your thoughtlessness!
    Please ... educate yourself on how to become Bear Aware!

    Never leave food unattended when not properly stored!

    Re: Pressure Cooker meals

    I use a crock pot too when I'm using the toy hauler. I plug it in on the outside table, put in a chicken and stuff and it's ready for dinner when I get back from riding. There are no bears however in the Texas Hill Country, so the worst thing that can get my food are the camp cats.

    Since most recipes I've found are based around larger sized Pressure Cookers, (like Gary-Genes 2 gallon pot ... )
    I needed to scale down the recipe I used, to fit in the 4 qt cooker, so I only used one cup of navy beans, and then just added what I thought looked good of the other ingredients.

    1 cup navy beans (soaked over night)
    1/2 med. onion - chopped
    1/2 clove garlic - chopped
    1 stalk celery - cut up
    1 carrot - cut up
    1/2 cup cubed cooked smoked ham
    1 tsp. sea salt
    1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
    1/2 tsp olive oil
    4 cups canned low salt chicken broth.
    I'll be cooking the soup for 35 minutes after it comes up to pressure.

    (Don't know how turned out yet ... it's still cooking ... )

    Here are a couple of pix before it was cooked.

    You seem to have pretty good results with your GSI PC. I tried two of the GSI pressure cookers and couldn't get either to work properly. The steam kept escaping from the lid seal on both and they would never build the proper pressure as a result. Maybe GSI had a batch with defective seals because they get really good reviews on Amazon and it was odd that I tried two and both had the same issue. I plan on trying another brand, but I really like the handle layout on the GSI's. We have a good swiss made one we use at the house and the results are excellent.
