Well the cheese cloth, half in the water and half out method outlined above worked out marvellously! The texture is very tight and firm but it is moist and flavourful. It is not like the regular boiled seitan texture at all and it more firmer but not dryer than regular steamed in foil method. The bite is most like a more moist version of Vegan Dad's luncheon meat method of steaming for an hour and then cooking at 350 for an hour. I will be cooking exactly like this again for sure.

So I bowed to PPK peer pressure and bought a pressure cooker. So far, I've managed to overcook rice in five minutes...

I've been eyeing this electric pressure cooker -- the Instant Pot -- at Amazon because I like the extra features:

Has anyone used one of these?

So I was leaning towards a stovetop cooker, but my mom bought us the Power Cooker digital one. I'm going to try beans today. So many instructions! I'm skeered.

I have a cheapy stovetop one. They are set up so that the pressure causes it to lock as a safety feature - don't be afraid!

It will start off sounding like a normal pan, then make absolutely terrifying noises that will make you want to be as far away from it as you can, then settle down and cook your beans to perfect deliciousness.

I ended up with digital though! I cooked some split peas yesterday. It isn't quite as complicated as I thought, but the instruction booklet is super unhelpful, so I'm getting all my info from the innerwebs.

I want one without the jiggly thing on top that won't explode. I don't really know anything about them, and looking at them on Amazon is a little overwhelming. I'm more interested in cooking than canning.


I have been using one with a jiggly thing on top for 30 years.....no explosions.
