Chili con Carne in Pressure Cooker

Yesterday we received our new pressure cooker. I don’t have the patience of not trying new gadgets and utilities so we gave it a try.  

We found a basic recipe on the big web. The result was good, not amazing, but good. I like the basic recipes​ as they give inspiration for the next cook. I’ll make sure to have some sun dried bell peppers and tomatoes next time. Not to mention cooking down the meat from a bone.

Here’s the link:

Is it necessary to use a pressure cooker? Not really. Will the tweaks make a difference? I’m quite sure about it. Here’s a pic of the result:

This is the first time I’ve used​ a pressure cooker after being inspired by all the food competitions on TV. It was remarkably easy to use. A good size for our family, even though it could be nice with a 8 l. Seems like good quality as well so it will for sure be used frequently.

I’ll follow up with a proper review on the  Tefal P2530738 Secure 5 Neo Autocuiseur 6 L later.
So today’s lunch is done. Siesta time before heading to Paris this afternoon.

Happy Sunday.


Chicken Thighs in an Hour.

Every afternoon we’re chasing time. Playtime, park, dinner, bedtime, diaper changes and preparing for the next day. And, most of all trying to get a little time just being girlfriend and boyfriend.

Our time of unwinding is making food. We would love to have more time doing it together, but with a baby it’s close to mission impossible; She’s more into breasts than her father. Today it was my turn. After an hour and some terrible burns on the fingers this was the result:

And, it was a huge success. Our son ate everything on the plate and we got some quiet family time together over a nice meal. 

Using time on family and all the things which comes with it totally worth it!

BTW: Pat on the back, I do the dishes as well!
