    Unique new flavor! Cooked this in my Ninja Foodi pressure cooker. Browned it on the sauté function on high, added the other ingredients and cooked on high pressure for 90 minutes with a 10 minute natural release before opening the valve. Meat was wonderfully tender and flavorful. Had it with a salad and apple pie. Big thumbs up from us!

    Absolutely delicious! The flavors in this dish were wonderful. I actually used beef roast and it was so tender and moist.

    My husband and kids liked the flavor from the sauce. 4 stars says a lot because they aren't huge fans of pork. I made this to shake things up a bit.
