Pressure-Cooker Pork and Cabbage Dinner
I put on this pressure cooker pork roast in the morning to avoid that evening dinner rush so common on busy weeknights. All I do is fix a side of family-favorite potatoes and we can sit down to a satisfying supper. —Trina Hinkel, Minneapolis, Minnesota
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 55 min. + releasing
- 1-1/2 cups water
- 1 envelope onion soup mix
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
- 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (4 to 5 pounds)
