Instant Pot Recipe for Teriyaki Pork
2 – 1 lb packages of pork stew meat
1 pineapple; sliced
1 stalk of spring onions; diced (green onions)
4 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon Sriracha
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
2 cups water
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
How to make easy Teriyaki Pork in the Instant Pot
Place the pork pieces in your Instant Pot or pressure cooker with olive oil (if you have the non stick insert for the Instant pot there is no need for oil). Close and lock the lid.
Set pressure cook or manual mode to 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, let natural pressure count for 10 minutes then do a quick pressure release. Now, drain the juice.
Next, mix teriyaki, soy sauce, brown sugar, sriracha, garlic, and ginger in a large measuring cup and whisk.
Set the Instant Pot to saute mode. Pour teriyaki mixture over pork, stirring frequently.
Once the sauce starts to thicken around the pork, turn off saute mode.
Serve the Teriyaki Pork with white rice. Top pork with green onions and sesame seeds. Serve with pineapple. This makes 4 servings.
This simple Instant Pot recipe will make your evening routine a little easier. Simply, set it, forget it and enjoy! If you are looking for more pork recipes for your pressure cooker check out this Instant Pot Pork Chop and Apples from Wondermom Wannabe.
