Last May, I had the pleasure of going to Boston with some local bloggers to see a demo of the NEW Ninja Cooking System. As I watched the demonstration, I was so impressed with how versatile it is and now I’m so excited to have this cooking system in my own kitchen!
The Ninja Cooking System is completely awesome! It has a stovetop setting so you can brown your meat or sauté vegetables AND a slow cooking setting. I LOVE IT!! You can also do steam infused roasting and you can actually bake small, moist cakes and desserts! Check out this video.
The control settings couldn’t be easier to use.
The cooking system will go into auto warm
when the set cooking time in Slow Cook mode is over.
This is the heating unit inside of the cooking system.
I LOVE this light weight cooking pot.
It’s so much easier to lift and clean than those heavy ceramic inserts I’ve had in the past.
I made Smothered Pork Chops to demonstrate the stovetop and slow cook settings.
Pull up a chair! There’s quite a few photos!
I made the entire recipe in this cooking pot! Yep, no other pans to wash!
First, I browned some chopped bacon on the (HIGH) stovetop setting
(to be used later in the recipe).
It started cooking immediately. I didn’t have to wait for it to get going.
I removed the cooked bacon and placed it on paper towels.
Once the bacon was cooled, I kept it refrigerated for later.
I carefully soaked up some of the bacon grease with paper towels and browned two pork chops at a time.
I set the browned pork chops aside.
Next, I added some sliced onions and a small amount of water.
I stirred them occasionally and removed them when they were slightly browned.
I put the pork chops back in and covered them with the onions.
I added the rest of the ingredients and put the lid on it.
I switched to the (HIGH) Slow Cook setting and cooked them for 4 hours.
This picture doesn’t do it justice, but the Smothered Pork Chops were fantastic! I actually removed the pork and thickened up the sauce with a mixture of corn starch and water. It thickened up nicely by putting it back on the (HIGH) Stovetop setting as I stirred the sauce. I put the pork back in the pot and topped it with the bacon pieces that I warmed up in the microwave. It was so good!
