Slow roasted tender meats can actually happen in half the time if you have the right equipment. My kitchen gadget of choice is the pressure cooker. Upon turning up the heat and sealing the lid, pressure builds up as the added liquid boils. The trapped steam increases the internal pressure, resulting in tender flavorful dishes. You must be precise when adding your liquids. Too little will cause the contents to burn and can ruin your meal and your pressure cooker.
