Pressure Cooker Pork Pot Roast
Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 1 hour 30 minutes Yield: 6-8 servings Method: Pressure Cooker
Pressure Cooker Pork Pot Roast. Tender pot roasted pork – ready in a few hours, thanks to the pressure cooker.
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 3- to 5-pound pork shoulder roast (aka Boston butt roast) cut in half
- 1 ½ teaspoons fine sea salt
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 large onion, peeled and diced
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 15-ounce can diced tomatoes
- 2 teaspoons dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1 cup hard cider (or apple cider, or chicken stock, or water)
- 1 pound baby carrots (or 1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into 1″ chunks)
- 1 apple, peeled, cored, and cut into slices
- Season and sear the roast: Cut the pork shoulder roast in half, then sprinkle with 1 ½ teaspoons salt and ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper. Heat 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. (Here is when the “Sauté” mode comes handy, put it on high in) Start to sear the pork roast one piece at a time. For each piece, you need to sear both sides until it is well browned, is going to take around four minutes each side. After searing, place the pork in a bowl and let it rest to keep going with the other parts of the recipe.
- Sauté the aromatics: Now is when you put the garlic and the onions into the pot, sprinkle them with the thyme and coriander, and sauté, stirring and scraping the browned pork bits from the bottom of the pan. Sauté as long it is needed so you get the onion softens, is going to take around five min. Then pour in the hard cider, bring to a simmer, and simmer for 1 minute to boil off some of the alcohol.
- Everything in the pot: Now is when things get interesting!. Include the pork into the pot, and pour in any juices in the bowl. Add the diced tomatoes, carrots, and sliced apple on top of the pork.
- Pressure cook the pot roast for 50 minutes with a natural pressure release: Lock the pressure cooker lid and cook at high pressure for 50 minutes in an electric PC or 45 minutes in a stovetop PC. Let the pressure come down by itself, Is going to take around 2o more minutes.
- Defat the sauce, carve the roast, and serve: Carefully move the pieces of pork to a carving board with tongs or a slotted spoon and maybe both since the pork is going to be extra tender at that moment. Then scoop the vegetables into a serving bowl with a slotted spoon. Pour the remaining liquid in the pot into a fat separator. Carve the roast, cutting it against the grain into ½” thick slices. Sprinkle some salt over the sliced roast, then pour a little of the defatted sauce over it. Serve, passing the rest of the sauce and the vegetables on the side.
Serve this with is mashed potatoes, to help soak up the sauce. (Or crusty bread – another good sauce dipping option.)

Tender Pressure Cooker Pork Roast
Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 3 hours Yield: 6-8 servings Method: Pressure Cooker
- 3 + lb. pork roast
- 1 onion chopped
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 1 tbs salt
- 1 tbs pepper
- 1 tbsp cayenne
- 1 tsp oil
- 2 packs brown gravy mix
- 2 cups water
- Score the top of your pork roast.
- Season with all dry seasonings.
- Stuff the roast with 1/2 onion and all garlic.
- Add oil to the pressure cooker and turn to sear.
- When is hot, sear roast on the top side (fat side) first for about 3 minutes.
- Flip and sear for another 3 more minutes on the bottom.
- Sprinkle the remaining onion over the roast.
- In a small bowl, then blend the two packets of brown gravy mix with the two cups of water. And then pour this mixture over the roast.
- Close and lock lid.
- Cook on High pressure for 3 hours.
- Personally, I like to cook my roast in 60-minute intervals with a 5 minute NPR (the small no pressure release lets some steam escape and we aren’t splattered with hot gravy!) By cooking in shorter intervals, I’m able to adjust the time to my size roast and be sure that the gravy has adequate seasoning during cook time.
- If the roast is not falling apart tender after 3 hours, cook on high pressure in 20-minute intervals with the manual release until the meat is tender.
TIP: If you’ve ever made a pork roast and at the end it was tough, the problem most of the time is that you didn’t cook it for enough time. The longer you cook a pork roast, the more tender it will be. If you are using the oven or a crockpot, give it at least 12 hours of cook. And if is on the pressure cooker, you can go up to 4 hours depending on how large the cut is.

Tip: If you are not sure on how much time you need to cook your particular roast, cook the pork loin until it reaches an internal temperature of 145°F on its thickest part. The higher the temperature, the drier the loin will be, so don’t go past 145°F while in the oven too much if possible. You can also use a slow cooker to make this recipe and if your machine comes with the sear or saute function like the Instant Pot that can be a great help!
