Everyone knows that making a roast in an instant pot requires some liquid on the bottom. I thought it’d be fun to infuse the liquid from a can of pineapple to cook the roast in the pressure cooker and then use the rest to make fresh salsa! This pork roast is cooked only for 25 minutes in the Instant Pot. Try pork loin and pineapple salsa out for your next weeknight meal. Pork and Pineapple table shot

The Ingredients

Ingredients for Pork and Pineapple This recipe is the perfect taste of summer made using canned pineapple! Essentially you are cooking the roast with the juice of pineapple from the can and then serving it with a pineapple avocado salsa. This salsa is a bit different in that there aren’t any peppers or tomatoes in it! It’s perfect for those in your life that may be avoiding nightshade vegetables.

Searing the Pork Roast

Searing the pork Many roasts done in the Instant Pot require a sear first. Simply dress it with salt and then sear it on the saute setting in the IP until browned on all sides.

Adding Braising Ingredients

Pork and braising ingredients   Typically roasts sit on a trivet in the IP while they cook. In this case, we’re using the humble onion to prop up our roast so that it absorbs all of the flavours of the pineapple juice and stock that you’re adding. Simply cook it on high pressure for 20 minutes and you’re on the way to a quick delicious pork roast. The roast benefits greatly from the additional 15 minutes of natural release. At this time you can put your salsa together and set the table! Tent the roast for 5 minutes while you get the final touches of the meal together.

Making the Pineapple Salsa

Serve this with some fresh warm tortillas or rice for a full tropical-inspired meal. Pinterest Recipe Card
