Freezer Meal Cooking Instructions
This may be your new favorite way to have a pork roast! So versatile in the way you serve it – the sauce can be simmered into a gravy and served with the shredded meat over mashed potatoes or shred the pork and serve it with tacos or rice. YUM!
To Cook in Instant Pot (recommended): Open bag and dump the contents in your instant pot. Add 1/4 cup water. Secure the lid, set the valve to seal and cook on high pressure for 70 minutes. Let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes and then quick release the remaining pressure. Once completed shred the pork and stir it back in with the sauce.
Optional: Simmer sauce on the saute setting until thickened. If you prefer a thicker gravy add 1 TBS of cornstarch and whisk until fully dissolved. Bring it to desired thickness and turn instant pot off. Serve with meal as desired.
Slow Cooker/Crock Pot: open bag and dump the contents into your crock pot, give everything a good stir to combine. Put the lid on and set to low to cook for 8-9 hours or high to cook for 5-6. Once complete shred the pork and stir it back in with the sauce.
We never plan for anything to go wrong when you are cooking with our meals but we would like to help you should the unexpected happen. If you find anything not to your liking, please consider these tips to ensure success or to customize your meal more to your preferences:
– To thicken sauce: Either in the Instant Pot (in Saute setting) or on the stovetop, bring sauce to a simmer and add 1-2 Tablespoons of cornstarch to mixture and whisk until fully combined and sauce has reached desired thickness. You want it to coat the back of a spoon lightly.
– To thin sauce: Add 1/4 cup of either beef or chicken broth or water and whisk to combine.
– If meat is not as tender as desired/not shredding: cook for additional time. Meat needs moisture and more low and slow temperatures to be successful! Try adding 5-10 minutes more in the Instant Pot, if needed.
