How To Keep a Pot Roast from Burning

Keep-a-Pot-Roast-from-burning

How to keep a pot roast from burning? Your roaster needs to have a multi-ply base so that the heat is evenly distributed. You need a thick, stainless steel base of a 5-ply, 7-ply or 9-ply bottom, either one will work. The waterless cookware sets come with a multi-ply roaster that is already in the set. Start with browning the roast on both sides and then simmer for two hours on low heat. The simmering will create the juices to cook a flavorful and tender roast. The special vapor seal in the waterless cookware lids will lock in the juices and flavors. The secret is not to open the lid or the steam will escape. Leave the lid untouched for the whole two hours on the stovetop burner. The waterless roasters are made for the stovetop burners and not the oven. Watch the waterless cooking video below to show you how to cook a great pot roast without burning.  See Waterless Roaster in the set…

Maxam KT17 Waterless Cookware Review

Maxam KT17 Waterless Cookware

The Maxam KT17 Waterless Cookware Review comes from previous experience cooking with this wonderful set.  I have been using this 9-Element Stainless Steel Waterless Cookware Set for  a long time now. The four saucepans, roaster and skillet have lasted throughout the years. Very durable stainless steel that can take a beating. I use this cookware all the time.

My favorite part is the egg poacher rack with the egg cups. The poached eggs will come out perfect in five minutes. The egg poacher sits nicely inside the main skillet. I put water at the bottom of the skillet and turn on to medium heat. Cover with the skillet lid and steam for 5 minutes.

I also like the roaster because I can slow cook meats on the stovetop burner, instead of using a hot oven. I do not heat up my kitchen, which is great. Slow cooked roast beef comes out very tender and juicy.  The saucepans are top notch which steam cook veggies such as yellow squash and zucchini. The whistle sounds when its ready to turn off the heat. Just close the valve on the top lid to silence the whistle.

Easy clean up, too. Dishwasher safe.

Delicate Flavors of Mandarin Green Tea

mandarin-orange-green-tea

Delicate Flavors of Mandarin Green Tea, Blended with green tea, orange peels, marigold flowers and natural mandarin flavor. Green tea from China with the delicate flavor of mandarin orange. Fresh citrus zest aroma, soothing sweetness with a soft and cozy texture. A subtle treat for green tea fans.
Orange, a common fruit these days, has a long and questionable history. During the Middle Ages, the fruit traveled from Asia to Europe, then along with the conquistadors to the lands of the New World. In its new home, the orange plant became fruitful and multiplied. Today, the Americas are the largest orange producers in the world, with most production clustered around the areas in Brazil and Florida in the United States. This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine. Steep at 180° for 2-3 minutes.
