Sweet and Sour Pork- Pressure Cooker

Jump to Recipe

This is such a great take on a classic sweet and sour pork. I can appreciate even more, during this busy time of year, because it comes together so quickly and with little effort. It is so simple to throw together in the pressure cooker.

Start by cutting your pineapple.

Next up is the bell peppers.

Cut pork roast into chunks, I cut mine about 1 – 1 1/2 inch chunks.

Set pressure cooker to saute and brown your pork chunks.

Don’t worry about cooking too much, the pressure cooker will take care of it!

Prep the remaining ingredients.

Pour all ingredients into the pressure cooker over the pork.

Mix with the pork.

You can cook the bell peppers and onions in the pressure cookers. I think they get kind of mushy though, so I sauteed them in a pan separately.

Once the pork is finished, make your cornstarch slurry.

Add bell peppers to the pressure cooker.

Then the pineapple.

Mix all in the pressure cooker.

Last in is the slurry.

Mix and set the pressure cooker on saute. Let it cook and thicken for a minute or 2 until it thickens.

We served our sweet and sour over brown rice. We also love white rice or even quinoa. There are plenty of great options for grains.

It was so good and flavorful!
