Today I going to share with you this dish that cook using a pressure cooker. My SIL Annie was so kind present me a set of WMF pressure cooker as a courage for me to cook more nice foods for my family in my new house. All this while, I'm hesitate to use a pressure cooker, but not for now, i just realized that this cooker is fast,efficient and it could retains vitamins and minerals and saves time too.

Start counting time when the 2nd red ring appeared, lower heat and it only took 15mins to braise duck.

tigerfish said...

Wow! A pressure cooker! It helps to "break down" the meat much faster and you still get tenderness in a short time. I have not tried tauchu duck before - should be delicious.

My Little Space said...

Wow, I love braised soybean gravy alot! My mom used to make braised pork & hard boiled eggs in fermented soybean gravy when I was younger. It's so delicious especially the gravy. An extra touch of pounded chili padi even better. Thanks for sharing another wonderful dish.
Best regards, Kristy

i have the same WMF Pressure Cooker and have been using it for the last 11 years. You can boil soup in this and it taste like it has been boiled for 6 hours ! Just dump everything in the pot with water and close the lid. Boil at high temperature until the knob raised to the fullest and lower the fire to the lowest and let it cook for 30 mins and then turn off the fire. The soup is ready when the knob falls flat and you can open the lid.

For Ngau Lam ( Beef stew ) takes 20 mins. Same as for pork - 20 mins. Beef Rendang also takes 20 mins or everything will be disintegrated !

Enjoy = )

I like this dish but I've never tried cooking duck. Using a pressure cooker for this dish really saves a lot of time.

Min {Honest Vanilla} said...

Wen said...

Wow pressure cooker is really useful, 15mins to cook a duck...amazing! The duck looks so yummy!

noobcook said...

I have wmf pressure cooker but ashamed to say that I've seldom used it. Also, I rarely cooked duck at home. Bookmarked your recipe because it really inspires me :)
