Pressure King Pro Macaroni Cheese


Pressure King Pro Macaroni Cheese Deluxe
I've always been a little bit scared of pressure cookers, thanks to the horrible high pitch hissing noise they made (I'd always make a quick exit from the kitchen when I heard it's squeals). Despite my own reservations, stove top pressure cookers have long been fixtures in my grandmother and mothers kitchen, probably since as far back as the second world war. However, it's taken me a long time to appreciate their benefits but thanks to the new wave of electric pressure cookers like the Pressure King Pro, I've come to realise they are not quite so scary anymore!

This dreamy macaroni cheese recipe was made in the 5 litre Pressure King Pro which I was sent to review and as well as being quick, it was a complete taste revelation, mainly thanks to the 'secret' ingredients I used! More on that in a bit but first I want to tell you a bit about the Pressure King Pro.

A BIT ABOUT THE PRESSURE KING PRO

The 12-in-1 Digital Pressure Cooker creates delicious, hearty, home-cooked meals faster and easier than traditional cooking methods in minutes, rather than hours and with a simple press of a button. The 12 pre programmed settings to make cooking simple include meat, fish, rice, stew, soup, pasta, steam, browning, delay timer, fast reheat and slow cook/keep warm.

The Pressure King Pro cooks with pressurised steam, locking in more vitamins and nutrients than many other cooking methods, and infusing your food with its natural flavours and seasonings, making delicious, healthier family dinners up to 90% faster than conventional methods. You’ll get that slow-cooked taste and tenderness in minutes rather than hours. Always a plus for busy weeknights.

This macaroni cheese was made in about 20 minutes and although I can just about make my conventional macaroni cheese in that time, this recipe doesn't involve making a roux and continuous stirring, so it meant I had 20 minutes to get on and do something else. There are a few unusual ingredients in this recipe including evaporated milk, which gives it a richness without being too creamy, cider vinegar, which cuts through the richness of the cheese and marmite, which gives it the all important umami factor. It's all of these added ingredients that help create the most delicious macaroni cheese with minimum effort. Grating the Gruyere, mature cheddar and Parmesan is about as tough as it gets.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE PRESSURE KING PRO MACARONI CHEESE


  • Try using different cheeses such as a blue cheese or Red Leicester.
  • Add some fried bacon or chorizo at the end of cooking for a meat eaters dream.
  • Up the veggies by adding in a small tin of sweetcorn or some baby spinach leaves.
  • You don't have to decant it into an ovenproof dish and grill the top, but if you do, add a handful of breadcrumbs for added crunch and texture.
