I've got some stewing steak to make a casserole for later on this week. I can either pressure cook it or cook it in the slow cooker.

Which do you think:

a) would be tastier?
b) would use less fuel?

Slow cooker - tastier. Dont know about fuel.

I know slow cookers use very little elctric about the same as a light bulb.

I have always used a slow cooked from my stews and they are always lovely. smile

I don't think there's much between them - depends on what you put in your casserole. Cooked up shin beef with carrots / sweet pots / barley on saturday in slow cooker - was fab for Sunday lunch. IMHO - pressure cooker tends to be better if you add more beans in the mix - pre-soaked types then pressure cooker works great. Can't see there being much difference in fuel - once pressure cooker is up to pressure it doesn't need too much heat to keep it going.
