BEEF STEW
(土豆萝卜炖牛肉)


Potato and radish are perfect ingredients to add into Beef Stew because they can really adsorb the flavor of the dish and somehow to thicken the sauce too. Beside the two onion and tomato also helps to blend in some slightly sweet and sour aftertaste.

This is the first dish I test with my new cooker because I always wanted to make a good beef stew but end up the meat was rather a bit tough even after long simmering time on stove. But now with "pressure cook" function I can easily enjoy this comfort dish in about 45 minutes and it comes with soft and tender meat texture too.

Chicken Rice
(万用锅鸡饭 )


I have cooked and shared many easy Chicken Rice recipes either using rice cooker or stove method. In this recipe we continue to test out the cooker by selecting "RICE" function where it takes a preset 14 minutes cooking time with 30 kPa pressure.

The texture of the rice is almost the same as those store bought and the half portion of chicken is pretty well cooked (even though it is not boneless) with juicy and tender meat.

LOTUS ROOT PEANUT SOUP
(莲藕花生鸡爪汤)


Lotus Root Peanut Soup is one of our family favourite but sometime the peanuts tends to take longer time (more than an hour) to become soft when simmering over stove heat. So to test out the "SOUP" mode on pressure cook I decided to use lotus roots, peanuts and beans to compare the result with my usual peanut soup.

To my surprise those mentioned ingredients were really soft to bite especially the lotus root and peanut.

BITTERGOURD PORK RIBS SOUP
(苦瓜排骨汤)


Bittergourd Chicken Soup is one of the soup which I learnt during my Taiwan trip years back. This soup is often serve during hot summer because bitter gourd has the effect of clearing away heat and detoxifying the body. Therefore I often boiled this soup for my family and sometime I will add in some pineapple to enhance the taste so as to mask the bitterness.

Now with this new cooker it makes soup preparation easier by by just adding all ingredients into the pot, select "SOUP" function and it will cook automatically without you checking on the stove heat or worry the soup might dry up.
