"Low Pressure" cooker recipes!!

Started 1318788892.05 in Kitchen & Food Talk | Last reply 1335971643.8 by mouser29

I hope Bob Warden's new Pressure Cooker cookbook, coming out in Nov, has "Low Pressure" recipes that I can use with the Gordan Ramsay "Low Pressure" Cooker. Or, I wish Gordan would write a cookbook for it. Somebody, please!!

Hi Melaney,

I have been looking all over for a "low-pressure" cookbook and cannot find one. We definitely need QVC to "pressure" Gordon Ramsey or Bob Warden to at least give us a book with a few recipes on how long to cook something on top of the stove at low pressure. How could they come out with an item and not have an instruction book or recipe book on how to use it? Hope they get the message soon.

Emeril had an All-Clad low pressure PC a few years ago. It was really expensive as it was stainless All-Clad. The Food Network may have recipes as he used it on 'Emeril Live'. Good luck!

Some of the competitors have had recipes posted online. QVC.uk had some a while back for their cooks essentials stainless steel stove top low pressure cooker (ok, additional work as you have to translate from English cooking terms to American) and ShopNBC has had some for their low pressure cookers here... http://www.shopnbc.com/images/cc/pdf/Recipes.pdf

The primary difference between low and high pressure cooking is time but that is very easily corrected with the low pressure cooker because you can just open it up and check on the progress. I use my low pressure cooker much more often than the regular pressure cooker because I like to layer flavors and add ingrediets as I cook.

I don't know for certain but I think the timing would be about double what is recommended for the high pressure cooker. There are some recipes and the manual with the product listing online.

I have three low pressure cookers including the Gordon Ramsey one and his is my favorite.

I have a low pressure cooker. I just cut back my liquids a bit and checking it about 1/2 way through regular stove top time.

I too purchased a Technique Low Pressure Cooker from QVC. It came with no manual, instructions or cookbook. QVC needs to help it's customers who have made these purchases and then been left out in the cold with an essentially usless item!

I bought a book on Ebay, called:

"Pressure Cookery Perfected" - Author: Roy Andries de Groot

Baron De Groot has high qualifications, such as:

Known throughout Europe and the United States as an authority on wine and food,
Roy Andries de Groot has written several interesting and creative cookbooks and many of his articles have been published in such national magazines as McCall's, Ladies’ Home
Journal, House Beautiful and Gourmet.

He has been president of the International Gourmet Society and a contributing editor of
Esquire magazine.

More at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Andries_De_Groot

At any rate, he says that any recipe can be converted to a PC:

Pressure Cookers do their pressure cooking at:
15 lbs: 250 deg F (121 C),
10 lbs: 238 deg F (114 C), and
5 lbs: 228 deg F (109 C) (Wearever Chicken Bucket)

p.29 To roughly recompute your "normal recipe" to 15 lbs Pressure cooking,
Divide the cooking time by 3, and use this as the 15 lbs cook- time.
To use other pressures, use this "Conversion Table":

(Low pressure is at 5 lbs.)

This is exactly what I do. There is no big secret to cooking in a low pressure cooker. Just make your normal recipes and slightly cut down on liquid. The first time or two that you make something, test it during the cooking process to monitor it's cooking time. After that, you'll know how long to cook it the next time.

I bought a really nice set from Amazon a few months ago for about $98. I got two surgical stainless steel cookers...one 9 qt and one 4 or 5 qt. The lid fit both sizes, and it also came with a regular glass lid if you just wanted to use them as regular pots. I like them because they are heavy and don't have non-stick interiors. I'm trying to get away from cooking with non-stick.

Also, once the pot comes up to full pressure, just make sure you reduce the heat just to the point where the float valve stays in the full upright position.

That's really all you need to know.

I purchased the Gordon Ramsay Low Pressure Cooker as well and after the big sale presentation I could not wait to receive it .... same as everyone else. No guides included.

Then when you go to the QVC Cookbook section, the only pressure cooker cookbook is no longer available. Nice going QVC ... Thanks for your attention to your customers. Anyone want a free Gordon Ramsay low pressure cooker?

You were all showing all kind of ways to use my Gordon Ramsey's "Low Pressure Cooker," but where are the receipts? How can you sell an item that can cook everything and only include 5 ways to use it? I think I'll have to send it back. I really wanted different ways to cook chicken...none were included...Very disappointed.

I just got a new Cook's Essentials pressure cooker and I bought Bob Warden's cookbook. It is great and tells you which recipes are used with high or low pressure.

cookin_guy1330626933.62178 PostsRegistered 4/2/2008

What kind of recipes and instructions would you want or expect for a low-pressure cooker?

For my own amusement, I could probably test out adapting some recipes, compare cooking results side by side with a "normal" or an electronic pressure cooker, trying to keep all things equal, and then post about it on my personal website.

Here's a few recipes for a Trinity low pressure cooker. Maybe they will work for yours.

I'd love one to give to my daughter, we'd figure it out! Sorry you've been disappointed, maybe you should try the electric, Cook's Essential pressure cooker. The cookbook for it is really great.

Was just shopping and came across a cookbook by Deni titled Pressure Cooking. Deni is sold on QVC. Go online to Bonton.com and ask for it. The cost was $9.99. It gives a good explanation of the book. Hope this helps. Have a great day. Last edited on 5/2/2012
