Miss Vickie’s Big Book Of Pressure Cooker Recipes

You will never want to skip a homemade meal again after reading through Miss Vickie’s Big Book Of Pressure Cooking Recipes, by Vickie Smith. Now that we’re converted to pressure cooking as a way of life, we simply don’t know how you would manage without it—and wish we had found it, as well as our Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker, sooner.

With literally hundreds of superb recipes and tips for today’s time-pressured and pressure-cooking home chef, this is an all-inclusive guide to quick and delicious meals. Helpful features include everything from a buyer’s guide to tips to perfect your pressure cooking skills. It was great to read up on the best-kept cooking secrets (that you’ll have to read the book to find out!) and learn about the best cuts of meats and vegetables for pressure cooking. Miss Vickie explains everything you need to know as if she were standing right next to you in the kitchen. To the new purchaser of a pressure cooker, the user’s manual can seem a bit daunting at first, but under Miss Vickie’s tutelage, you will soon be a pro.

We learned a great deal through Miss Vickie’s step-by-step instructions, from when to add liquid to the cooker to how to open the cooker when the meal is ready. All of the instructions were easy to follow, and the food that emerged from the pressure cooker was simply wonderful! Who knew that one could make homemade tapioca in as little as 12 minutes (what a relief after years of standing over a hot burner stirring for what seems like hours on end)? From braised lamb shanks and Veal Marengo to almost instant creamy Chicken Alfredo (one-pot meal), these recipes will please even the pickiest of eaters. In an earlier section of this article, we mentioned the cheesecake. Call it good news or bad, but you can have a simply splendid cheesecake in 20 minutes that is totally indistinguishable from a perfect oven-baked version.

Beyond Vickie’s delicious recipes and training on how to use a pressure cooker, another reason this book is a must-have are the 20 pages of pressure cooking time charts. If you want to experiment with recipes on your own, these time charts will guide you in converting your own recipe cooking times to pressure cooking. Pressure cooking doesn’t provide a lot of room for error: Under such high temperatures, it’s easy for food to overcook with “guesstimates.” When a couple minutes can ruin your dinner, these charts are extremely helpful.

At the end of the day, it’s good to know that the expensive prepared food can stay at the supermarket, and a healthy and even tastier meal is only a few minutes away with the help of our Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker and Miss Vickie.
