What is the Difference Between Braising and Cooking?
Braising is a cooking technique that involves cooking food in a covered pot with liquid. Braising meat in the oven is a popular way to cook it.
The difference between braising and cooking is that braising requires a pot to cover, while cooking does not. “Braise” comes from the French word “braisé,” which means to roast or brown something in fat or overheat.
What Makes a Recipe “Pressure Cooker” or “Instant Pot” Friendly?
A pressure cooker or an instant pot is a type of cooking appliance that cooks food quickly. It has been around for decades, but it is only recently that it is becoming popular with the rise of the Instant Pot and other similar devices.
In order to make your recipe compatible with a pressure cooker or an instant pot, you have to make sure that you have the right ingredients. If you are not sure about what makes a recipe “pressure cooker” or “instant pot” friendly, here are some recommendations for making your own recipe into pressure or instant pot meal:
– Make sure your recipe includes soft vegetables like potatoes, carrots, and onions (these are less likely to break down during cooking)
– Make sure your recipe includes lean meats such as chicken breasts and pork tenderloin (these are less likely to overcook during pressure cooking or instant pot cooking)
– Make sure your recipe includes liquids like broth, wine, tomato sauce, or pineapple juice (these liquids can achieve a pressure cooker or instant pot setting without boiling over)
– Make sure your recipe includes foods that are more likely to cook into a smooth texture on the stovetop such as pasta ( these foods are less likely to become tough in the pressure cooker or instant pot)
– Make sure your recipe includes vegetables that are more likely to break down into a smooth texture like carrots, potatoes, or onions (these vegetables can achieve a pressure cooker or instant pot setting without over-cooking)
– Make sure your recipe includes foods that contain fiber and water such as grains, dried beans
