Pressure Cooker Teriyaki Pork Roast

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
  • Total Time
    Prep: 10 min. Cook: 30 min. + releasing
  • Makes
    10 servings


  • 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


  • 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. A thermometer inserted in pork should read at least 145°. Press cancel.
  • 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. Freeze option: Place sliced pork roast in freezer containers; top with sauce. Cool and freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a covered saucepan, stirring gently and adding a little water if necessary. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds, if desired.

    It sounds really good, but here's my issue. You have a saute function on the Instant Pot, as well as some other multi cookers with a pressure function. Why would you NOT use the saute function to put some color (and ultimately flavor) onto the meat? Even if you just browned it a little on the fatty side it would work wonders.

    A great dish made with only a few ingreidnets. The pork was tender and still flavorful although mild. Since I enjoy pepper I would add more than the amount stated in the recipe... as well as scaling up the soy sauce to enhance the Asian flavors. Overall, it is a dish that the entire family enjoys.
