Instant Pot Ginger Pork

As the weather begins to change and fall is upon us, I like to use my Instant Pot more. This pork dish is flavorful and doesn’t use a lot of ingredients. Most ingredients are most likely in your pantry already.

I like to eat this pork with roasted vegetables or a baked sweet potato. The flavors of the dish will pair well with all vegetables.

I used a pork shoulder, but a pork roast will work well for this recipe as well. The Instant Pot help make the pork tender and flavorful.

Instant Pot Ginger Pork

This is an easy, flavorful pork dish that uses the Instant Pot to make the pork tender. It's also Whole30 and Paleo compatible.



  • 3 lbs. pork shoulder, fat trimmed and cut into 2 inch chunks
  • 1/2 C coconut aminos
  • 1/3 C rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp fish sauce
  • 2 tsp chili paste
  • 1 C chicken broth
  • 4-inch chunk of ginger root, sliced
  • 2 tsp Oomph No. 5 Three Star Blend
  • 1 T sesame oil
  • 1 bunch kale, stems removed and roughly torn
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  1. In the Instant Pot, whisk together the coconut aminos, rice vinegar, fish sauce, chili paste, chicken broth, ginger, and Oomph.
  2. Add the pork, lock the lid in place, seal the vent, and pressure cook on high for 45 minutes.
  3. When the timer goes off, manually release the pressure, remove the pork pieces, and set it aside. Remove the ginger pieces and discard.
  4. Use a fat separator or skim the fat off the top of the liquid in the Instant Pot.
  5. Taste the liquid and adjust it for spice level, adding more chili paste if it’s needed. Add the kale to the Instant Pot, set it to sauté, and continue cooking until the kale is wilted.
  6. Add the sesame oil and turn the Instant Pot off. Add the pork pieces back into the liquid and top with green onions.
  7. Serve with roasted vegetables or baked sweet potatoes.
