  • 3 lb pork roast
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 2 c broth vegetable, chicken or beef
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 c soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp ginger minced
  • 1.5 tbsp garlic diced
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp sriracha optional, can use more for more spice


  • Set Instant Pot to saute and add olive oil. Rub seasoned salt and roasted garlic and herbs on pork roast on both sides. When hot add pork roast and sear on both sides, turn Instant Pot off.
  • Take roast out and cut into 3 pcs.
  • Pour 1 c of your broth into your pressure cooker and use a spatula or wooden spoon to loosen the pcs on the bottom of your pot (called deglazing your pot so the burn notification doesn't come on later).
  • Put pork roast pcs back into your pot with diced onions and last cup of broth.
  • Set pot to pressure high for 60 minutes, close lid and steam valve.
  • Do a natural release.
  • Shred pork with forks, remove fat pieces if desired, and put shredded pork into a bowl.
  • Discard liquid in pot and put back into Instant Pot.
  • Mix all ingredients above together with a whisk until cornstarch is dissolved.
  • Put Instant Pot on saute, low, and add sauce mixture.
  • Put shredded pork in your bowl into your pot and mix with sauce.
  • Allow to bubble just slightly so sauce thickens a bit and pork is thoroughly coated with sweet sauce.
  • Serve on top of rice or in slider buns, top with green onions and sesame seeds if desired.
