Quick and Easy Healthy Cilantro Pork Pot-Instant Pot/Slow Cooker
A healthy meal that everyone loves!
This is one of my favorite and go-to recipes when I need an easy and quick meal. Years ago when I published my 9th cookbook, Entertaining with Amy, I created this Quick and Easy Cilantro Pork Pot recipe for times when you needed an easy meal for your family that everyone likes. Basically you dumped all the ingredients in the crock pot and cooked it for 6-8 hours. However times have changed a bit, so I updated the recipe using my Instant Pot and now I ...
Instant Pot Pork Tenderloins in Creamy Mushroom Sauce
After my last trip Germany, I came back inspired to make Jagerschnitzel in a healthy way. I didn't want to call it officially, "Jagerschnitzel," as it isn't as rich as the German version. Normally the pork is breaded with bread crumbs and egg or flour and egg, but since I'm trying to keep the points down, I decided to cut this part out. Because it's done in the Instant Pot, the pork turns out very tender and juicy. Use thin pork chops and trim the fat.
Thai Chicken/Pork Wrap
These Thai Wraps are great and hold up well for traveling if you put them in a cold lunch pack. I often take them on the airplane with me. As long as your ice packs are totally solid when you go through security, bringing perishable food is no problem. It's best to make your own tortillas (see my recipe) instead of the store bought ones if you are making them a day or two ahead. Otherwise the tortillas break down and become soggy.
Instant Pot Kalua Pig
I've been making this dish for years but it's even better in my Instant Pot. This is one of the recipes in my recipe triology series. The first night you make the Kalua Pig, Homemade Hoisin Sauce and serve them in lettuce wraps with rice, the second night you make Thai Pork Pizza-it's so quick especially if you have the Whole Wheat Pizza dough already in your freezer, the 3rd night (if there are any left overs, make a big lettuce salad, add a bit of pork, add some rice, cabbage and use the ...
Thai Pork Pizza
These pizzas make up very quickly if you have the pizza dough in the freezer and the Kalua pork already made. You can also use cooked chicken in place of the pork. This recipe is for 4 but you could easily do it for more or less people.
Pork Carnitas – Instant Pot and Slow Cooker Directions
I just love Pork Carnitas! These are a more healthier version than traditional but they still taste great! They do take a bit of prep time and marinating time but they do cook fairly fast in the Instant Pot, so be sure and make a full batch (you can always freeze the leftovers). I usually buy a 15 lb pork shoulder from Costco and cut it into 3 (5 lb.) portions. I freeze two portions for later for more Instant Pot Pork Carnitas or for Kalua Pig. Also be sure and use fresh oranges and limes in ...
