Fast pork rashers and stir-fried cabbage salad
Fast pork rashers in my new Tupperware® Micro Pressure Cooker happened tonight. On Sunday evening I used the microwave oven-safe pressure cooker for the first time to make a lamb curry. It worked out well.
Tonight I have some pork rashers which I will cook in the pressure cooker and serve with a salad made with cabbage, celery and other vegetables and fruit (tomato).
- 5 Pork rashers diced
- 1 cup Cabbage shredded
- 2 Green beans sliced
- 2 sticks Celery sliced
- 2 Bird's eye chillies sliced
- 1 bunch Pak choi sliced
- 1 tomato diced
- 1 tablespoon Black bean sauce
- 1 tablespoon Sesame oil
- 2 cups Chicken stock
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons black pepper
- 2 teaspoons chilli flakes
- 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
- ¼ cup cream
- 1 tablespoon crushed ginger
- 1 tablespoon crushed garlic
In the Tupperware® Micro Pressure Cooker add the diced pork rashers along with the ginger, garlic, stock, sesame oil, black bean sauce, salt, pepper and chilli flakes
Cook in the microwave oven at 900 Watts for 15 minutes
When it has finished in the microwave oven remove the Tupperware® Micro Pressure Cooker and allow it to reach ambient atmosphere
When the pressure has normalised remove the pork pieces and drain
In a wok, add a good nob of butter and wait until it begins to foam then add the tomato, cabbage, celery, green beans, bird's eye chillies, and pak choi
Stir-fry the vegetables
After the tomato has softened add the pork rashers and stir together
Add the cream to form a sauce
Serve in a bowl and garnish it if you like with something green to make it look appetising

Questions and answers
How did it taste?
It was bloody amazing
How long do you normally cook the pork rashers for?
Usually one hour so this made a big difference and the pressure cooker is easier to clean
Do you prefer the rashers roasted or fast-braised like tonights?
I like them roasted because then the skin crackles but this fast-braising in a pressure cooker is more convenient.
This fast pork rashers and cabbage salad meal is a winner. It’s quick and easy to put together and a great meal for one person.
