Ready to board in SLC

I’m heading back to Salt Lake City next week for the Everything Food Conference. I had a fantastic time last year, learning a lot, meeting new friends, and winning a BlendTec blender.

So, readers, any suggestions where to eat? Last year, thanks to many commenters (especially commenter Amanda), I ate at:

  • Crown Burgers (The Pastrami burger with Fry Sauce was every bit as good as advertised)
  • Tony Caputo’s Market & Deli (Italian market with awesome sub sandwiches)
  • The Copper Onion (Fantastic cocktails and high-end local food)

My one regret is Red Iguana – it’s the local Mexican restaurant, recommended by almost everyone I asked. I went there twice…and both times, the crowd waiting out front was too intimidating. (And I was too hungry to wait.) This year, I’m going to stick out the line.

So, once again this year – any other Salt Lake City suggestions? Any local specialties I can’t afford to miss? (Also – I’m flying through Dallas/Fort Worth airport – anything worth eating at DFO, especially for a late breakfast/early lunch?) Let me know in the comments.  Thanks!

Pressure Cooker Senate Bean Soup

Double checks that it’s not spelled “Capital”…phew, I’m good.

US Senate bean soup – served every day in the lunchroom of our nation’s capitol – is a perfect example of the marriage of beans and smoked pork. In the Northeast, we use salt pork with beans, a holdover from our European roots and the sailors that crisscrossed the Atlantic. In the Southwest, we use bacon, while I imagine a cowboy nicknamed “cookie” stirring a cast iron pot, over a campfire, surrounded by the open prairie, the vast night sky above him.

Here in the Midwest, pork and beans comes when we have a leftover hambone. In my case, I always get one from our Easter ham, and go looking for bean soup recipes to cook.

Here’s a video of one of my favorites – and one of the more popular recipes on my site – US Senate bean soup. Navy beans and ham hocks are what I wrote the recipe for…but a hambone can easily be swapped in for the ham hocks. We want the smoked pork and bones to add body to the bean soup; I’m not picky about where the bones come from.

Pressure Cooker Senate Bean Soup

Bean soup is on the menu in the U.S. Senate’s restaurant every day.

No one is exactly sure why this tradition started, but since 1903, U.S. Senate bean soup has been served in the Senate dining room every day – the only mandatory recipe on the menu.
The only exception, according to Senator Elizabeth Dole, as told to her by her husband, Bob Dole, was in 1943, during World War II rationing. It only happened for one day, and then bean soup was back on the menu.

Senate bean soup a simple recipe – navy beans, ham hocks (or ham and a hambone), onions sauteed in butter, and salt and pepper. “The Senators like their soup straightforward” said Don Perez, the Senate dining room’s executive chef back in 2003.

I’m taking a couple of liberties with the soup – Chef Perez admitted he adds a little garlic – and a recipe attributed to Senator Fred Dubois in 1903 includes mashed potatoes and parsley. I’m skipping the potatoes, but the parsley adds a splash of color that I can’t pass up.

So, why bean soup? Because I will have a ham bone and leftover ham from Easter dinner. (I’m notorious with my in-laws for taking bones home with me from family dinners.) This recipe was invented to use up leftover ham. (Well, I don’t know that for sure…but it looks like what the Senate’s chef would do the day after serving ham.) That said…the pictures have a (huge) smoked ham hock from my butcher. Don’t be afraid to use leftover ham; this recipe was made for it.

Pressure Cooker Senate Bean Soup

5 from 6 reviews

Pressure Cooker Senate Bean Soup recipe. It doesn’t get more American than bean soup from the United States Senate lunchroom.

  • Author:
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8
  • Category: Sunday Dinner
  • Method: Pressure Cooker
  • Cuisine: American

Ingredients

  • 1 pound dried navy beans, sorted and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large onion, cut into 1/2 inch dice
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds smoked ham hocks (or a hambone and some leftover ham)
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Minced parsley for garnish

Instructions

  1. Sort and rinse the beans: Sort the navy beans, removing broken beans, stones, or dirt clods. Rinse the beans and set aside.
  2. Saute the aromatics: Heat the butter in the pressure cooker pot over medium-high heat until it stops foaming. Add the onion, garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Saute until the onions are softened and browning around the edges, about 8 minutes.
  3. Pressure cook the beans: Stir the rinsed navy beans into the pressure cooker. Set the ham hocks on top of the beans, and then pour the 8 cups of water over everything. Lock the lid on the pressure cooker, and cook at high pressure for 30 minutes in an electric PC, or 26 minutes in a stovetop PC. Let the pressure release naturally, about 20 minutes. Remove the lid carefully, opening away from you – even when it’s not under pressure, the steam in the cooker is very hot.
  4. Shred the ham hock, season, and serve: Remove the ham hock from the pot with a slotted spoon or tongs, and set aside to cool. When the ham is cool enough to handle, shred it, then stir the ham back into the pot. Stir in the fresh ground black pepper. Now, taste the soup, and add salt until the soup tastes sweet and full of body, and you can just feel the taste of salt on the tip of your tongue. (I needed 2 teaspoons of kosher salt to get the taste I wanted.) Serve with a sprinkle of minced parsley on each bowl.

Notes

  • Want to speed up the recipe? Soak the beans overnight. Replace step 1 with: the night before cooking, sort the navy beans, removing broken beans, stones, or dirt clods. Rinse the beans and put them in a large container with the salt. Cover with 2 quarts water. Let the beans soak for at least 8 hours, or overnight. Drain and rinse the beans, then continue with step 2.
  • Look for meaty ham hocks, if you can – the ones in the video I shot were from the end of the hock, and didn’t have much meat on them. Larger hocks are usually meatier, so if you have an option, get big hocks instead of small ones.
  • Please, do not forget to season to taste at the end! Soup tastes bland and flat without added salt. Don’t worry if it seems like a lot of salt – you’re still adding a lot less salt than you’d get in canned beans.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes picture from the Pressure Cooker Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic recipe I posted this week. I hate it when I stop paying attention, and bang my head on the camera arm while I try to stir the pot. It’s not the most stable bracket, and you can see the wobble whenever I need to adjust my camera. (Or, at least, I can see it. I’m my own worst critic.) But, hey, it gets the job done!

I’m a long time Thermapen fan – I loved my Classic Thermapen, and used it for about a decade. I wrote about it in one of the first posts on my blog, back in 2009.  Thermoworks saw that post, and sent me a newer model. I passed the Classic on to my Dad. He still using it – and I get visitation rights whenever I go over for a cookout in the backyard.

If you couldn’t quite deal with the price of a Thermapen…this might be your chance. $59 is a great price for this thermometer.

Don’t dawdle – this price is only good through the end of April, 2017.

I got a few questions about the Instant Pot Duo Plus, so I shot a quick unboxing video:

Video: Instant Pot Duo Plus Unboxing (6:11)


Instant Pot IP-DUO Plus60 Unboxing [YouTube.com]

Questions I didn’t cover in the video (that I can think of)

Q: Do I need the Duo Plus if I already own a Duo?

A: No. The two are remarkably similar. There are a few nice little touches:

  • A fancy new display
  • The new cooker remembers your settings for three different modes
  • “Pressure Cook” mode replaces “Manual” mode
    • Oh, and a bunch of new program modes – none of which I ever use. (I’m a Saute mode and Pressure Cook mode kind of guy)
  • the 2/3 and 1/2 markings on the pot actually show you the pressure cooking max fill lines.

But, all in all, these are minor improvements to the Instant Pot Duo you already own. Now, if you’re in love with pressure cooking, and want an excuse to buy a second Instant Pot…well…I own 6 different pressure cookers right now. I can’t tell ANYONE not to buy another cooker.

Q: If I don’t have a pressure cooker, should I get the Duo Plus or the Duo?

A: I’d go with the Plus. I always want the latest technology, even if it’s a minor update. Now, as I write this, the old Duo is $20 cheaper. If the difference between $120 and $100 matters to you, and every dollar counts, get the older Duo – it’s a great cooker. Either way, I think you’ll love your new pressure cooker.

Pressure Cooker Chicken With 40 Cloves of Garlic

Thank goodness for pre-peeled garlic.

Chicken with 40 cloves of garlic is a classic recipe from Provence, easily translated to the pressure cooker…but, oh, the garlic peeling. Most recipes start with “peel the cloves from 3 heads of garlic”. That’s a lot of peeling – and yes, I’ve tried the “shake the garlic between two metal bowls” trick; it doesn’t work as well for me as it does in online videos. Especially when I have a better option in my grocery store’s produce section.

That’s right, pre-peeled garlic is here to make chicken with 40 cloves of garlic into a quick and easy recipe. Check the refrigerator case in your grocery store – you don’t want garlic in oil; you want whole, peeled cloves. (Also – make sure they container looks dry, and there are no yellowing cloves. Pre-peeled garlic is easy, but it also goes bad quickly.)

Other notes for the recipe, beyond pre-peeled garlic: use chicken thighs. Dark meat chicken stands up to the pressure cooker better than white meat, and thighs give me a much higher meat to bone ratio than drumsticks.1[/footnote]

I stir in a flour slurry to thicken the sauce at the end – with a pressure cooker, the sauce comes out thin, and needs the help. Finally, I love spreading the garlic cloves on bread – I slice up a French baguette and serve it on the side.

Looking for a classic of southern France, in a hurry from the pressure cooker? Grab some pre-peeled garlic, some chicken thighs, and get cooking.

Pressure Cooker Chicken With 40 Cloves of Garlic recipe. The classic farmhouse recipe from Provence, updated for a pressure cooker.

  • Author:
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
  • Yield: 8 chicken thighs
  • Category: Weeknight Dinner
  • Method: Pressure Cooker
  • Cuisine: French

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 chicken thighs (about 3 pounds)
  • 2 teaspoons fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 40 peeled cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves (about 10 sprigs)
  • 2 tablespoons flour (optional, to thicken sauce)

Instructions

  1. Brown the skin side of the chicken thighs: Heat the olive oil in the pressure cooker pot over medium-high heat until shimmering. (I use sauté mode adjusted to high in my Instant Pot pressure cooker.) Sprinkle the chicken thighs with the salt and pepper. Sear the thighs in 2 batches: put 4 thighs in the pot, skin side down, and sear until the skin is golden brown, about 5 minutes. Move the browned chicken thighs to a bowl, then sear the second batch of thighs, and move them to the bowl as well. The thighs will render a lot of fat – pour out all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the pot before moving on to the next step.
  2. Lightly toast the garlic, then deglaze the pot with wine: Add the garlic cloves in a single layer into the pot and toast until just turning golden brown, about 2 minutes. (Don’t overcook the garlic – burnt garlic tastes bitter.) Pour in the wine and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 1 minute to boil off some of the alcohol, then scrape the bottom of the pot with a flat edged wooden spoon to loosen all the browned bits of chicken into the sauce.
  3. Pressure cook for 25 minutes with a natural pressure release: Pour in the chicken stock, then add the bowl of browned chicken thighs and any juices. Try to submerge the thighs as best you can in the liquid in the pot. Sprinkle the fresh thyme leaves over the top of the chicken, then lock the lid. Pressure cook on high pressure for 25 minutes in an electric PC, 20 minutes in a stovetop PC, then let the pressure come down naturally, about 20 minutes more.
  4. Thicken the sauce and serve: Scoop the chicken thighs and garlic cloves to a platter with a slotted spoon. Put 2 tablespoons of flour in a small bowl (I use a 2 cup pyrex), then whisk in 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid from the pot to make a flour slurry. Whisk the flour slurry back into the pot, set the pot back to medium-high heat (sauté mode in my IP), bring to a simmer, and simmer for 1 minute. Taste the sauce for seasoning – it should be highly seasoned, and may need some more salt and pepper. Ladle some sauce over the chicken and garlic, and pass the rest of the sauce at the table.

Notes

  • This recipe fits in a 6 quart or larger pressure cooker. (I love my 6 quart Instant Pot)
  • 40 cloves of garlic sounds so exact. I just dump a 6 ounce container of pre-peeled garlic into the pot…or, 3 heads of garlic, if I have to do all the work myself. 6 ounces seems to be the usual size of a package of pre-peeled garlic, but if you could only find, say, 4 ounces..you’ll be fine. That’s still a lot of garlic.
  • Don’t want to use wine? Use more chicken stock (or water) instead.

The Instant Pot IP-DUO Plus60 is now available for purchase on Amazon, with immediate shipping! Now, I don’t know how long immediate shipping will last – the IP-DUO80 wound up on backorder almost immediately – but if you hurry, I’ll bet you can get one soon. (Mine will be here Thursday…Amazon prime shipping for the win. I can’t wait!)


Instant Pot IP-Duo Plus60 Electric Pressure Cooker [Amazon.com]

Now, should you buy one if you already have a “regular” IP-DUO? Probably not…unless you’re a pressure cooker fanatic like me. The original IP-DUO is still a great cooker, and I don’t know what (if any) advantages this new cooker has. That said…I must have one. And, if you’re enjoying your Instant Pot so much that you’re thinking of buying a second one, now might be the time… (Or, if you’re patient, maybe wait for Prime Day in July? Amazon usually has the Instant Pot on deep discount.)
