Salt & Vinegar Pork
By :Jeffrey Eisner
instant pot recipes
This dish is inspired by the classic and popular Filipino dish called adobo, a savory and tangy sauce that’s usually draped over a protein. Soy sauce is normally the base for the sauce, but using coconut aminos in its place will cut down on some sodium, add additional flavor, and keep it naturally gluten-free. It is beyond simple to make and yields a very satisfying result. It goes wonderfully over any kind of rice (see page 114 in the book). Photos by Aleksey Zozulya

Instructions
  1. Add the oil to the Instant Pot, hit Sauté, and Adjust so it’s on the More or High setting. After 3 minutes of heating, add the onion and sauté, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes, until slightly softened. Add the garlic and sauté for 2 minutes.
  2. Add the pork and sauté for about 2 minutes, until it turns pinkish-white.
  3. Add the coconut aminos, broth, white vinegar, apple cider vinegar, peppercorns, and sweetener or maple syrup. Stir well and top with the bay leaves.
  4. Secure the lid, move the valve to the sealing position, and hit the Manual or Pressure Cook on High Pressure for 15 minutes. When done, allow a 5-minute natural release followed by a quick release.
  5. Meanwhile, mix together the cornstarch and water to form a slurry.
  6. Remove the bay leaves, hit Keep Warm/Cancel, hit Sauté again, and Adjust so it’s on the More or High setting. Once it begins to bubble, stir in the slurry and let bubble for 30–60 seconds, then hit Keep Warm/Cancel again to turn off the pot.
  7. Once the bubbling dies down, stir in the honey (if using), transfer to a serving dish, and serve.
Recipe Notes

JEFF’S TIP: The optional honey or monk fruit sweetener simply adds a touch of sweetness to the dish. If that´s not your thing, leave it out.
