    On 6-quart Instant Pot™, select SAUTE; adjust to normal. Add bacon; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until soft, and push to side of insert. Add pork; sear 3 to 5 minutes on all sides or until browned. Select CANCEL.
  • 3
    Pour broth over pork in insert. Secure lid; set pressure valve to SEALING. Select MANUAL; cook on high pressure 90 minutes. Select CANCEL. Keep pressure valve in SEALING position to release pressure naturally.
  • 4
    When cool enough to handle, shred pork and chop bacon. Toss with 1 1/2 cups of the cooking liquid; discard remaining cooking liquid.
  • 5
    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, toss cabbage, green onions, pineapple, lime juice, honey, oil, pepper flakes and remaining 1/4 teaspoon sea salt with tongs to completely combine.

    To serve, divide pork among rolls; top with slaw.

Expert Tips

  • Naturally releasing pressure allows the pork to cook longer and become even more tender as it cools.
  • For best flavor, allow the pork to get quite brown on all sides while sautéing.
