Portuguese Octopus Stew

Amid Lent, it is standard for our family to eat fish or fish on Fridays. Since we as of now had the octopus prepared and prepared, I wanted to cook it for Friday night's supper. This time, we utilized our trusty Presto Pressure Cooker. It was a wedding blessing from my mom, and to be completely forthright with you, I just began utilizing it on a week after week premise when Mom came to remain with us.
The Pressure Cooker is astonishing. You can cook dinners in truly minutes with this volcanic gadget. Presently we are happy with utilizing it, we cook Cacoila, Ribs, Chicken, Pork Chops, Soups, Beans and Potatoes and Octopus in it. Try not to cook Pea Soup in it as I did, you may wind up with a green roof!

We took after my Aunt Filomena's formula for the Octopus Stew. My auntie is a star at utilizing a weight cooker, she generally has one on her stove top and can throw together a supper in under no time. She is additionally an extraordinary cook. She makes a wide range of soups, jams, cakes, malasadas, wieners, salted onions and makes the best home made french fries!
