3. Turn off heat, allow steam to escape and open pot. If there is too much liquid, allow evaporating at medium heat and with the pot uncovered.

4. Untie the beef, slice it and serve it along with onion sauce.

5. Tip: to make slicing the meat easier it is advisable to let it cool completely, then, once sliced, reheat it in its juices.

6. Option: sauté the garlic clove in the pot with two table spoons of oil. Remove garlic and add loin, tied and floured. Brown the meat evenly, add 200 ml of milk, close the pot and allow cooking for 30 minutes from the ringing. Pork roast with milk is excellent hot as well cold.

Chef Arlyn Hackett shows you how to use a pressure cooker to save time, save energy and make delicious healthy recipes.

Why Pressure Cookers?

Pressure cookers are highly valued around the world

Pressure cookers are already highly valued in areas of the world with food and energy scarcities. That's because pressure cookers use a fraction of the energy of conventional cooking methods. In a pressurized cooking environment (i.e. inside a pressure cooker), the boiling point of water is drastically lowered (allowing for higher cooking temperatures) and very little heat energy escapes. Food cooks more quickly requiring far less external heat, making pressure cookers one of the most energy efficient appliances you can own.
