Tasty Fried Pork

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by joanna_giselle

This is something I came up with one day when I was feeling adventurous. You fry the pork in the oil first, then add lemon juice, a little water and spices and pressure cook for 30 minutes. You end up with yummy flavoursome pork. Try it!

Other than using vegetable oil in this, made recipe exactly as posted. Very flavorful, and tender as well as the seasonings. Granted I hardly get the pressure cooker out, this was well worth it. Especially loved the lemon addition to this. Real easy to prepare and make. Made for Recipe Swap #50.
