I'm always looking for no-fuss recipes, so I was thrilled to find this one. The tender teriyaki pork has become a family favorite. —Roxanne Hulsey, Gainesville, Georgia


  • 3/4 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (about 3 pounds), halved
  • 8 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons cold water
  • Chopped green onions and sesame seeds, optional


  1. Combine the first 7 ingredients in a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker. Add roast and turn to coat. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 25 minutes. Let pressure release naturally for 10 minutes; quick-release any remaining pressure. Press cancel. A thermometer inserted in pork should read at least 145°.
  2. Remove pork to a serving platter; keep warm. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into pressure cooker. Select saute setting and adjust for low heat. Simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Serve with pork. If desired, sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds.
