Pressure-Cooker Spicy Pork Roast With Apricots

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + marinating Cook: 25 min.


8 servings

I wanted a one-pot roast that had a slightly sweet taste and was good for dinner and then sliced for sandwiches the next day. I like to serve it with a country gravy mixed with some of the juices and pieces of apricots from the roast. —Paulina Parker, Livingston, Texas

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons Caribbean jerk seasoning

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (2 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup dried apricots, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup honey

  1. Combine the first 7 ingredients; rub over roast. Refrigerate, covered, overnight.
  2. Place 1 cup water in a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker. Top with roast; drizzle with oil. Combine apricots and honey; pour over roast. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 20 minutes. Quick-release pressure. Remove roast and keep warm.
