Who Doesn’t love a good Pork Roast Recipe? And Here at Pressure Cooker Tips, we are cooking With Instant Pot every week, and this week it’s the turn of the one and only Pork Roast With Sauerkraut.


The Key Points are Tender, Tasty and Roasted

There’s a few reasons that turn us on when creating this recipe.

First of all, we were looking for a quick and easy recipe and most recipes on the Internet are at least 4 hours long, mainly because they are focused on cooking using slow cookers.

But even the Instant Pot Recipes are at least 3 hours and there’s plenty of ingredients that again are against our policy of quick and easy.

Thats when we start thinking about This Recipe.

There are tons of ways of cooking Pork Roast, but the focus is always on the tenderness of the Pork, that’s also why many Pork roast Recipes use only Pork Loin instead of pork but or shoulder.

But by mixing the pressure cooking of the pork together with the Sauerkraut we focus more on the overall flavor of the recipe.

The Sauerkraut will give a powerful touch that will enhance the pork flavor and add an extra sauer punch to the mix.

So without futher a do lets go straight to the recipe:
