Instructions
  1. Press [Sauté] to pre-heat the cooker. When the word “Hot” appears on the display add oil to the cooking pot. Brown each half of the roast separately. Remove to a platter when browned.
  2. Turn pressure cooker off and add water and liquid smoke to the cooking pot. Add browned roasts and any accumulated juices to the pot. Sprinkle the salt over the top of the pork roasts.
  3. Press [Pressure Cook] and then use the [+] button to set 90 minutes of pressure cooking time. When beep sounds, use a natural release to release pressure (approximately 20 minutes). When valve drops, carefully remove lid.
  4. Remove the meat from the pressure cooker and shred with two forks, discarding excess fat as you shred. Add some of the juices from the pressure cooker to moisten the meat. (I used a fat separator to remove fat from the juices.)

    Not quite as tender as if done in a smoker. But considering the huge time difference, it was terrific.

    Easy and excellent. Served it with a Honey Cilantro glaze on rolls and it was divine!

    This is my family’s favorite pork recipe! I make pork roasts all the time for carnitas or Hawaiian recipes and this is the easiest, tastiest recipe of them all. I never make the other recipes I used to use. This one supercedes them all. :-9
