CAMPING CASSOULET

CAMPING CASSOULET

PICKLE BRINE POTATO and GREEN BEAN SALAD with GRILLED STEAK

PICKLE BRINE POTATO and GREEN BEAN SALAD with GRILLED STEAK

I’m afraid that I’m hooked on spicy extreme beans.  It used to be dill pickles but oh that spice and crunch sends me over the moon.  I buy them in large jars but recently the frugal Galley Kat in me was resenting wasting all that tasty brine.

PRESSURE COOKER ‘BAKED’ BEANS

PRESSURE COOKER ‘BAKED’ BEANS

Sometimes a bowl of baked beans and some bread make a great boat supper. I could just open a can or I could make them from scratch… …no oven and a slow cooker uses too much electricity… so I tried making them in my little 2 quart pressure cooker. They turned out very well and took no more than 45 minutes of cooking time. I tend to make things with a pinch of this and a dash of that so…
