    BxChick's Note:

    The idea for this recipe came from the cooking blog "A Year in the Kitchen," but I made some modifications, and converted it to a pressure cooker recipe. The pressure cooker shaved over 2 hours off of the cooking time, and the pork was so tender! The original recipe was inspired by a dish from Chef Michael Symon's restaurant, Lolita, in Cleveland.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Brown the pancetta and pork in 4-quart or larger cooker.
    2. 2
      Drain excess fat, and add the onions, carrots, and garlic and cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until the vegetables soften slightly, about 2 minutes.
    3. 3
      Stir in the wine and boil until about half evaporates. Scrape up any browned bits sticking to the bottom of the cooker. Add italian seasoning and salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Cover the meat with tomato sauce. Do not stir.Lock the lid in place.
    5. 5
      Over high heat bring to high pressure. Reduce the heat just enough to maintain high pressure and cook for 8 minutes.
    6. 6
      Turn off the heat.
    7. 7
      Allow the pressure to come down naturally. Remove the lid, tilting it away from you to allow steam to escape. Remove bay leaf and stir. Break up meat with a wooden spoon or potato masher, leaving some bite sized pieces intact.
    8. 8
      Serve over rice, pasta, or polenta.

      Made this modified for my electric pressure cooker. I did as written and then cooked on high for 45 minutes. I had used country style ribs cut into chunks and they were fall apart tender. The sauce is so rich and tastes like it simmered all day. Thanks for sharing!

      Wow - really tasty! I made this dish without the pancetta; used lean cubed pork cut from a leg roast. Served with large whole wheat egg noodles and fresh green beans. I will definitely make this again and I will recommend it to my friends. Thanks for sharing!

      So stupid easy, and so stupid delicious. Basically an Italian version of pulled pork. Awesome with a bit of Parmesan cheese over the top.
