recipe Tips

  • Opt for thick-cut pork steaks, around 1 to 1.5 inches thick, to ensure they remain juicy and tender during cooking.
  • Allow the Instant Pot to preheat before adding the pork steaks. This helps to ensure even cooking and better browning.
  • Take the time to properly sear the pork steaks on both sides before pressure cooking.
  • After searing the pork, deglaze the pot with chicken broth to loosen any browned bits stuck to the bottom. This helps prevent the “burn” notice and ensures even cooking.

How to Store?

If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. To reheat, simply warm the pork steaks in the microwave until heated through. If you want to freeze them, wrap the pork steaks tightly in aluminum foil or freezer bags and store them in the freezer for up to three months. To thaw, place them in the refrigerator overnight before reheating.
