Asian-Glazed Pork Shoulder
Ming Tsai, chef at Blue Ginger in Wellesley, Massachusetts, and host of Simply Ming on PBS, experienced the power of the pressure cooker during a taping of Iron Chef America. Using the device, he was able to make one of his favorite childhood dishes, slow-braised pork shoulder, in just an hour. "At a restaurant you have all day to braise," Tsai says. "That's not true on Iron Chef." Now he's always looking for new ways to exploit his cooker, making duck legs, chicken thighs and spareribs as well as the juicy glazed pork shoulder he's eaten his whole life.
