Pork in the Pressure Cooker

Here’s a pressure cooker recipe for you.  We’ve used this one for years and love it!

Pork loin or roast
1/2 c. white wine (or broth)
1/4 c. oil
1 onion, chopped
1 or 2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 or 4 apples (Granny Smith would be good but I use whatever I have on hand), peeled and cut into large chunks
seasonings to taste

Cut the pork into pieces bigger than bit size but not as big as serving size.  I slice my loin like it’s going to be a thick pork chop, then cut those into three pieces.

Season the meat well.  I use Slap Ya Mama and it truly doesn’t come out hot because of the sweetness.  I think the original recipe said to coat the meat with spicy mustard.

Heat the oil and brown the meat well.  Once the meat is nice and browned, remove it.  Deglaze the pot with the wine.  Add the apples, garlic and onions.  Put the meat on top.

Add about 1/2 – 1 cup water.  Cook on low pressure for about 20 minutes.

I take everything out and make a gravy, then put everything back in and let it simmer for a little while, adding more seasoning if necessary.

Serve over saffron rice.  This makes great leftovers!

    This sounds really good–is the apples applesauce when it is all done? do you use that for your gravy? Just curious, if so never had applesauce gravy, and we love pork gravy. I have everything but the Slap yo Momma, might have to try it–we like our stuff mildly hot.

    This sounds great. DH loves pork roast. We love using our pressure cooker. I need to find some Slap Ya Mama! (that may be a problem in CA)

    Also, I bought a food saver at Costco – it is wonderful. Sure makes freezing stuff alot easier!

    That looks yummy. I don’t have a pressure cooker though. Hmm..guess I’ll add that to my list of things I want and hint at it alot. I made red beans and rice on Wednesday, it was so good. Yummy!!

    I am big on the pressure cooker but not pork, although my guys (DH and son) like it a lot so I’ll likely give this a try.

    I just saw the Slap Ya Mama products at the Fancy Food Show, and I was a bit appalled by the name. The 2 young guys assured me that they’d never slap their mama which made me feel better but still I didn’t stop to try what they offered.

    Keep on encouraging people to pressure cook — it’s the way of the past that’s ready for the future.
