I love easy recipes. Which is why I had a long relationship with my Crockpot...and have since broken up with it in favor of my Instant Pot. I have found that a pork roast is one of the easiest and most bang for your buck things to cook, second only to a whole chicken. It makes tons of food and probably tastes the best when it is cooked in the slow cooker or pressure cooker (set it and forget it!). Then, you can use the leftovers for all kinds of things.
Balsamic Mustard Pork
- pork roast
- 3/4 cup chicken stock
- 2 tablespoons mustard
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon basil
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- Place the pork roast into the pressure cooker. Season with salt, pepper, garlic, and paprika.
- Mix the chicken stock, mustard, balsamic vinegar, and basil in a small bowl
- Pour mixture around the pork roast. Cook on high pressure for 1 hour, letting the pressure release naturally.
- Open the pressure cooker and carefully remove the pork roast. Shred with two forks, adding a little bit of cooking liquid as necessary.
Note: If cooking in the crockpot, you can reduce the liquid to 1/4 cup of chicken stock. Cook for 6 hours on high or 8 hours on low.
