  1. Add Rice Mixture ingredients to a 1.5 quart casserole dish and set aside.
  2. Add oil to the Instant Pot. Using the display panel select the SAUTE function.
  3. When oil gets hot, brown the pork on both sides, 3-4 minutes per side. Meat will not be cooked through. Do not crowd the pot–you may have to work in batches. Transfer browned meat to a shallow dish and cover loosely with foil.
  4. Add Sauce Mixture ingredients to the Instant Pot and deglaze by using a wooden spoon to scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pot.
  5. Put the meat back into to the Instant Pot, turning once to coat.
  6. Insert a tall trivet or riser into the Instant Pot and carefully lower the casserole dish onto the riser using a foil sling. The bottom of the casserole should not be in contact with the pork mixture.
  7. Turn the pot off by selecting CANCEL , then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  8. Using the display panel select the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 14 minutes and adjust to LOW PRESSURE .
  9. When the time is up, let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release the remaining pressure.
  10. Immediately remove the casserole and trivet. Quickly move pork to a cutting board to rest.
  11. (Optional) Add broccoli florets to the sauce and stir to combine. Close the pot lid and let stand for 3-5 minutes on the KEEP WARM setting or until broccoli has almost achieved the desired tenderness.
  12. Mix together the cornstarch and cold water in a small bowl and stir into the broccoli sauce until thickened, returning to <>strong> SAUTE mode as needed.
  13. Slice the pork against the grain. Serve over rice with topped with sauce and broccoli.
