How to Make Instant Pot® Sweet And Sour Pork

  1. Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as an Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Add oil and heat until hot. Add pork cubes, working in batches if necessary, and cook until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Return all the pork back to the pot and cancel Saute mode.

  2. Whisk together 3/4 cup water, ketchup, rice vinegar, pineapple juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic in a small bowl. Pour over pork and stir to combine.

  3. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturers instructions; set timer for 5 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  4. Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturers instructions, about 5 minutes. Release remaining pressure using the quick-release method. Unlock the lid and remove. Transfer pork to a plate using a slotted spoon. Cover with foil to keep warm.

  5. Select Saute mode and stir in onion, pineapple, and red and green bell peppers. Simmer until vegetables start to soften, 6 to 7 minutes.

  6. Whisk together cornstarch and remaining 1/2 cup water in a small bowl until smooth. Pour slurry into the pot. Cook, stirring constantly, until sauce has thickened to your preferred consistency, about 2 minutes. Return cooked pork back to the pot and heat until just warmed through. Garnish with sesame seeds.

Instant Pot® Sweet And Sour Pork Reviews

  • I thought this tasted very good. One note: to me, the point of using the Instant Pot is to save time, so instead of sauteing the vegetables separately, I put them all in the pot after cooking the pork and adding the sauce. Set the pot to 5 minutes like the recipe said and it came out great. Only thing I messed up is I didnt drain the pork after sauteing, the sauce was a little watery for me.

  • It was okay but not as much sweet and sour flavour to it as we had hoped. Followed recipe exactly. Would be tempted to slightly modify with more brown sugar.

  • It was great Everyone in the family enjoyed it. I will add this one to our favorites:)

  • Excellent My family and I love this recipe Its a keeper.Thanks for the share.

  • I followed the recipe as is except didnt use green peppers because I dont like their flavour. I am a beginner with my Instantpot and this recipe was amazing. Really easy to make and turned out great. Will definitely make again

  • I had no pepper pineapple so I used squash and peaches. Came out great

  • Great recipe Followed pretty much as written, although I never really "measure" my ingredients, just eyeball my amounts. One mistake I made though, was I followed the advice of another reviewer who added veggies with the pork and cooked them all together. Veggies in Instant Pot tend to mush and they did. BUT kids loved it, wife loved it and even I, who normally doesnt eat pineapple thought it was a decent change. Will deff make again, but following original instructions
