How to Double-Boil Chinese Soup in the Shortest Time for the Busy Working Woman?

Using the pressure cooker to double-boil Chinese tonic soup is a fantastic way to save time :-)

1. 1 large bowl
2. 1 metal stand
3. 1 plate to cover the bowl
4. 1 large pressure cooker

1. Put all ingredients a large bowl and prevent moisture loss by covering it with a plate.

2. Place a metal stand into the bottom of the pressure cooker fill it with 2 - 3 inches of water (at least 250ml of water to create steam). Turn on high heat for the water to boil.

3. When the water boils, place the large bowl in the pressure cooker. Then place all the soup ingredients in the bowl, fill the bowl up with water or soup base. Cover the bowl with a plate or alumimun foil to prevent moisture loss (optional). The bowl should sit on the metal stand.

4. Close the pressure cooker and bring it to pressure on high heat and cook at setting no. 2 for 5 to 20 minutes, depending of the type of meat used in the soup.

5. Cool under water and remove pressure cooker lid. Serve :-)

Additional Information:
This is a brilliant method I learn from and an Italian's blog www.hippressurecooking.com. I am so happy to learn this. The result - Chinese double boil soup in a short time through an Italian's innovative method of cooking using pressure cooker. It is after all possible to make traditional Chinese double-boil tonic soup for a working mom living in this modern era. I will be experimenting with the recipe and share them in my blog.

I bought my WMF pressure cooker from Amazon and I have been very happy with it:
