Frankly, I was surprised that the Instant Pot even came to pressure with only 1/2 cup of orange juice. However, there was no Burn notice! The pork was tender. The sauce was delicious! Make sure to get a high quality mild curry powder; I like Sun Brand Madras Curry Powder, and the Penzey curry powder is also nice. We couldn't believe how quickly dinner reached the table! This goes into our regular rotation.

Would it be possible to use a slow cooker instead of pressure cooker?
