A good friend of mine gave me this recipe after a long discussion on Pressure Cooking. I changed the name to Pork Roast Divine, because it really is. The drippings in the bottom of the pot make the best gravy, and I often use this as a base for my mother-in-law's homemade noodles, which made my Dad's (and husband's) favorite meal. This also makes incredible bar-b-que pulled pork sandwiches.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sear the pork roast until nicely browned on all sides.
  2. Set aside to cool.
  3. Pour olive oil into the pan and cook the leeks, minced onion and garlic until done, 3-5 minutes.
  4. (If not using a regular onion, minced, add the onion soup mix.) Add 2 cups of water and the chicken broth to the pot to heat.
  5. Rub the roast with the spice mixture (sage, mustard, salt, paprika, thyme and pepper).
  6. Put the roast into the liquid in the pressure cooker and bring to pressure.
  7. Cook the roast for 45 minutes.

The basic idea of this recipe is very good but I needed to modify it quite a bit. The recipe calls for garlic but does not say when to put it in. (I chose to saute it with the leeks and onions the last 3 minutes of cooking them.) The recipe also does not say how much pressure to cook the roast on. (I chose 15lbs of pressure.) I did not have a pressure cooker that had a pan to put the roast in while cooking. (Do they make these?) I put the roast directly into the sauce and cooked it for 35 minutes with good results. The rub is wonderful and I may use the rub in a separate recipe on it owns next time. This is a good basic recipe but have tested better ones.

Delicious Pork Roast. I added 1/2 cup dry white wine, and used low sodium chicken broth; pressure cooked for 25 min. When the pork was done, I added potatoes, carrots, and celery and pressure cooked 20 min. for the rest of the total 45 min cooking time suggested. Next time i will cut the paprika down just a little.

I haven't used my pressure cooker in a long time and thought this would be a great recipe to try. My pressure cooker does not have a feature on it to allow me to choose the pressure, however, the end result was a wonderful flavored roast! I used the onion soup mix instead of minced onion. This is a great recipe and I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks so much for sharing (and giving me a reason to bring my old pressure cooker out of moth balls).
