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.

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.

Final verdict

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.

    1. I feel guilty I have three, but I think I’ll be using the Tupperware® one the most. My plan today is to cook beef short ribs in it.

  1. Crackling skin vs quick and easy… When you are too tired or too lazy after a long day, sometimes you’d just take the easy way out. Another good-looking meal, Gaz. And I’m sure delicious as well 😀

    1. Thank you very much Mabel. It was certainly delicious. This pressure cooker is a game changer. It’s quick, easy and easy to clean. What more could someone living alone want. I have enough left over for lunch tomorrow too.
