Pressure Cooker Pork Chili Verde

Pork slowly stews with jalapenos, onion, green enchilada sauce and spices in this flavor-packed Mexican dish. It is fantastic on its own or stuffed in a warm tortilla with sour cream, grated cheese or olives on the side. —Kimberly Burke, Chico, California

    I am new to the instapot, so this was my 4th recipe thus far to try. I have been intimidated to use the darn thing. But with this simple to follow set of instructions From TOH, I did it. The flavor was good, needs salt and pepper, and maybe a smaller amount of green enchilada sauce (it was quite thin, more like soup). The pork was fabulously tender, and from start to finish it took me 90. Minutes total.
