Recipe Notes

This pulled pork works well stuffed into tacos or pitas, served over rice or mashed potatoes, or piled on buns.

Cutting the pork in several large pieces allows the meat to cook quickly and evenly in the pressure cooker.

When releasing pressure naturally, it’s always a good idea to set the pressure valve to VENTING after the float valve drops down, just to be sure all of the pressure has been released.

    Pork cooked beautifully. It was super bland tho. Maybe find better seasonings but use this cooking method.

    I doubled the garlic and this turned out amazing. Put the pork in quesadillas with Ohakim Mexican cheese. Simple fun easy dinner.

    This was so good and tender! For those saying it was bland: rub the pork with plenty of salt and pepper (about a tablespoon of salt and 1/2-teaspoon of pepper) before searing. Drop the salt in the sauce down to 1/2-teaspoon.

    Used 2/3 cup BEEF broth, 1/3 cup soy sauce and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Garlic same. Salted and peppered liberally before sauteing so did not add during cooking.

    So good! I read the comments and used between 2/3 and 1 cup of BEEF broth (not chicken), 1/3 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 5tsp minced garlic. It was delicious and will definitely become part of our rgular rotation.

    Ermagerd, it is delicious! I used a pork tenderloin instead, and it came out soft and tender with lots of flavor.
