Pressure Cooker Sweet and Sour Pork


  • 1 pound pork loin, cut into chunks
  • ¼ cup beef stock
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ cup water


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Stir beef stock, sweet chili sauce, honey, and soy sauce together in the pot of your pressure cooker; add pork and stir to coat.
  2. Lock pressure cooker lid in place. Set steam vent to Sealing.
  3. Select Pressure Cook (Manual) and cook for 5 minutes on High pressure.
  4. Allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then set steam vent to Venting to quick-release remaining pressure.
  5. Press Cancel.
  6. Stir cornstarch into water in a small bowl with a whisk to dissolve the cornstarch; pour into pot and stir.
  7. Select Sauté and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens to desired consistency, about 5 minutes.
Mealthy tip:

Up the sweet in your dish with the addition of fresh pineapple chunks, a commonly used item in many sweet-and-sour dishes. If you want a little heat to your orange chicken, brown a few chiles de arbol in the hot oil before adding chicken. You'll lightly season the oil and find a nice, even spiciness to the final dish. If you want a LOT of heat, try adding sliced Fresno chilies with the chicken.

Super easy dish for that weeknight Chinese food craving. I added a little brown sugar and some crushed red pepper flakes to make it a bit more sweet with a kick.
