  1. Can’t wait to try this! Looks amazing 🙂 I have a question though. I noticed that there isn’t any salt or pepper listed in the recipe. Do you season the pork before browning or is there enough salt in the stock and tomatoes to supplement adding any more?

    I’m so frustrated this didn’t work at all. I followed this recipe step by step. The pork is tough and tasteless, the sauce is the same texture as when I put it in. Now I have a hungry family and not much to offer them. This is only my second recipe with my instant pot………….maybe it’s the user. ? Boo.

    • Sorry it happened to you. Try to reduce the amount of broth next time, and season more with your favorite spices, maybe this will help. The pork should not be tough at all, maybe you had a wrong cut?
