Cooking Under Pressure

  • We have limited resources in the van and we need to be mindful how we use our water, propane and electricity.  This is especially true for those of us not planning on staying in RV parks with full hookups very often.  we are still testing these systems on shorter trips to try and get a better understanding of capacity and limitations.  Did you know that electricity in the van is free and propane needs refilling?  Even if the cost for propane is low, free is still lower.

    This can limit our cooking repertoire to some extent.  It is not very sustainable for us to cook meals that will need to simmer on the stove for a long time, or for example, ribs need to precook in the oven between 1-3 hours before they can go on the BBQ.  I also find that the range of temperature on the propane stove in he van is somewhat limited and it's very hard to cook something on low temperature.  I really like to have a bit more control over the flame.  But here comes the Instant Pot to the rescue!  you can have the ribs on the grill within half an hour and they turn out fall-of-the-bone delicious!   Stew?  Half an hour! Pulled pork? Pulled Chicken?  Meatballs? Chili?Soup? Easy, tasty, and quick. You can even cook from frozen! To view the rest of the post click here
