Cooking under pressure

Oh yes … The pressure cooker is back!

We have had one for a while, sitting in it’s box waiting for the love it deserves.

And today was finally the day.

At the local Farmers Market there was a stall selling goat meat, including $5 packs of belly. A light went off in my head and we bought some to try in the pressure cooker.

And OMG… Very awesome results.

The only challenge I had was not being too nervous of the pot blowing up! Oh, and adapting the recipe to suit my other halls allergies … No deadly. Night shades, chilli, dairy or any food fun it sometimes feels like!

Anyway, I found a recipe that seemed easy enough to alter here;

The only changes I made was … Reduced the oil, no tomato or chilli and adding sweet potato and chick peas.

I put the lid on with some small prayer and waited. Well, the result was amazing. The meat was fall off the bone and the taste full and rich, all in about 30 minutes!

I will now take to this new gadget with zeal and a variety of recipes!

Oh and it turned out too be about 270 calories a serve …nice one.
