During my 7-day Paleo trial my favorite meal was to put a chicken breast or pork tenderloin chop in the steamer for 25 minutes. When the timer was down to 10 minutes I'd add in sliced zucchini, roma tomatoes and mushrooms. Sometimes at about 8:00 minutes I'd toss in some broccoli. Makes a delicious meal.

I can even steam completely frozen meats and they come out tender and juicy. I love my steamer!!

According to Dr. Sears it is suppose to be the best.

I know Dr. G does not follow the zone exactly. He does not like peanuts, crabmeat. He also eats raw meats.

Somethings are not right for everybody.

Nate,

I hope you get a lot of good use out of the steamer. I bought mine primarily as a rice cooker that would also steam veggies but it turned out to be not-so-great at cooking rice but fantastic at everything else!

Chris,

Thanks, I saw one on sale and figured it would be a really good way to get some cooking done without burning down my apartment in the process (the meat would be a little too well done for me). Thanks for the awesome idea. Is it fairly fool-proof to cook food correctly or is it something I need to tweak til I get it right? Thanks again.!

Crab is on the list of dirty food, such as all shellfish, pork, and the like. Has to do with how clean the animal lives as shellfish are the filters of the sea. Peanuts is also not only not a nut, but also very heavily contaminated with pesticides and also a GMO food.

sorry to go off topic....

Chicken is best bought fresh and then frozen yourself...otherwise already frozen chicken is loaded with sodium.

Nate,

I've used the times in the steamer manual as a guidline and they've been pretty accurate. Meats have been very forgiving...I haven't had one that seemed overdone. Broccoli is VERY sensitive and 1 minute can make the difference between nice and crisp and turning-to-mush. Harder veggies are pretty forgiving.

Like you said, steaming couldn't be easier, it's safe and from what I've read it's one of the better cooking methods for keeping nutrients.
