How To Make Pulled Pork In A Pressure Cooker

I hope you are willing to take advice from a Jewish girl on cooking pork because this quick pulled pork recipe I made in my electric pressure cooker was amazing! Yes, amazing. I don't say this often, but in this case it was true.

Pork loins were on sale and I bought a pack of 2 on a whim. I considered roasting them, but then decided to try making pulled pork. It was beyond easy, juicy, flavorful and required so little clean up!

So far I've used my pressure cooker to make mostly chickpeas and black beans. Pork was something new. I looked at a few recipes on line and then made up my own.

How To Make Pulled Pork In A Pressure Cooker
olive oil
2 1-pound pork tenderloins
1 large onion, thinly sliced
salt & pepper
14. 5 ounce fire roasted tomatoes {I used Muir Glen brand because that's what I order in bulk on line}
2 bay leaves
1 cup water {after making the recipe, I think it's safe to say you can leave the water out!}

1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Brown the pork tenderloins and onions seasoned with salt and pepper for about 10 minutes.
2. Add tomatoes, bay leaves, pork loins and onions to the pressure cooker. Set it for 1 hour on "meat" setting. Go clean, dance, watch a few shows, read a book, paint your nails, whatever you want.
3. Once the pressure cooker reaches the necessary pressure and then "cooks" for an hour, release the steam, carefully open the lid and smell the divine aroma. Using 2 works, carefully pull the pork apart {after taking out the bay leaves}.

I served the pulled pork with sweet potato wedges and lightly pickled cucumber and red onion spiralized salad. This was a really satisfying meal.

For the sweet potatoes, cut large sweet potatoes into 8 wedges, Season with salt and chili powder after drizzling with olive oil and roast for about 40 minutes at 425F.

Here's a little spiralizer video that got over 5K views on instagram!
