Traditional Hawaiian Kalua pork is cooked in an underground oven or sand pit. Less traditional recipes use a slow cooker to cook the pork all day long. Unfortunately, we often find ourselves short on time and underground ovens. The solution: Instant Pot™ Kalua Pork. It will have you on your way to the party in way less time and with way less hassle.

Ingredients

  • 1 boneless pork shoulder roast (3 1/2 to 4 lb), trimmed, and cut in 3 pieces
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons sea salt
  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
  • 1 package (10 oz) shredded cabbage (about 4 cups)
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 3/4 cup diced fresh pineapple
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 24 King's Hawaiian™ original sweet dinner rolls (2 packages)

Steps

  • 1
    Season pork pieces with 1 1/2 teaspoons of the sea salt. Set aside.
  • 2
    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.
  • 6
    To serve, divide pork among rolls; top with slaw.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Naturally releasing pressure allows the pork to cook longer and become even more tender as it cools.
  • tip 2
    For best flavor, allow the pork to get quite brown on all sides while sautéing.
