How to make easy Teriyaki Pork in the Instant Pot

I get my pork from ButcherBox, which has the healthiest, highest quality meat at great prices. Best of all, it's delivered to your door.
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 or medium bowl and stir with 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.
