    Thanks, Raypin! Missus had a hankering for Shibuya's Mentaiko, unaware that the UPTC branch has closed a looong time ago. Will just make for her.

    Mm...except for the pressure cooker, the other functions are geared towards western recipes. It is useless for Filipino recipes (lutong bahay). At home, I no longer use my pressure cooker. I get better results using my slow cooker for tenderizing anything. Hindi durog ang proteins.

    ^Time was when the only way to tenderize your meats, especially beef, was with a pressure cooker. Those sell for prohibitive prices long before slow cookers and meat tenderizer gadgets came in. They take a while to cook, and when they do, they emit this high pitch whistle until you turn off the damn thing. Then you either get scald or burned depending on how you try to pry open the lid. They were also a pain to clean afterwards. So much for an 8-year old kid then who started working as sous chef to my mother.

    mmm...I marinate overnight. Into the marinade, I add pureed Asian pear the last 6 to 8 hours. Guaranteed tender bbq pork.

    I ve had my share of pressure cooker accidents.

    Folks noob question. Need some recommendations on truffle oil that's reasonably priced ( 250-500ml, less than 1K). Will be making truffle fries. A quick search at Lazada got me these : Urbani White, Molinera, Sabatino Tartufi. Also what's the difference between white truffle and black truffle? Which would be more appropriate for truffle fries? Thanks.

    Mm....Molinera brand is good for basic pantry stuff. I suggest getting the smallest bottle you can find on Lazada and use sparingly when tossing it after frying the the potato.
