I was browsing the Whole Foods site for grocery ideas and came across some pork belly. I have heard about pork belly but had never tried it. I found a recipe for pork belly using the Instant Pot and decided to give it a try because I am always looking for more recipes to make in my Instant Pot. I followed a recipe calling for 2 lb of pork belly, but used 1 lb of pork belly and it still turned out really good.
The pork belly came in a slab, so I started by cutting it into 1 inch cubes. I placed in the instant pot with a little bit of water, teriyaki sauce, and a little bit of pineapple(optional). I only added the pineapple because I had a little left over and didn’t want it to go to waste.
Press the “pressure cook” button and cook for 25 minutes. Let natural release for 15 minutes. If there is still pressure left, press the quick release.
What you will come up with is a delicious fall apart meat. I prepared the pork belly by grilling it to get it a little caramelized. I paired it with shirataki noodles, chard, and carrots.
