Roasted pork shoulder is best when cooked low and slow, which means it's often a no-go for weeknight meals. Luckily, an Instant Pot can help make it a simple weeknight supper. Simply season the meat, sear it quickly, and then let it cook for less than an hour – the perfect amount of time to cook up some rice or potatoes to pair with it.
What sets an Instant Pot apart from other slow cookers is the sear function, which adds a caramelized flavor to the pork. Using the trivet that lifts the meat up off of the bottom of the Instant Pot will help it keep that caramelization, all the while allowing it to absorb the flavors of the aromatics.
