Hawaiian Kalua Pork (Instant Pot)

Hawaiian Kalua pork in a pressure cooker is juicy and tender. Dinner is ready in about 10 minutes of active time!

My friend V’s recent purchase of an Instant Pot has left her gushing about how easy it is to use and how much faster food cooks. Furthermore, the dishes are delicious.

Instant Pots are a godsend for busy weeknights when I cook dinner for the entire family!

Using a pressure cooker, I made this Hawaiian Kalua Pork for the first time, and it was a huge success.

He was so enamored with the Kalua pork that he requested that I pack it for him to eat for lunch at school. This is something that doesn’t happen very frequently now.

The recipe’s minimal ingredient list really appeals to me. A few tweaks to the original recipe have resulted in a more flavorful dish.

The pork is succulent, moist, and full of flavor, and the meal only required one pot to prepare.

In the meanwhile, I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things with my Instant Pot and sharing more pressure cooker recipes with you all.

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Wright’s Hickory Liquid Smoke
  • 1/2 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 lbs. (1 kg) pork roast
  • 1 tablespoon oil


  1. Add oil to the saucepan and select Browning. Brown the pork on both sides in the heated skillet, about 3 minutes per side. Once browned, transfer to a serving plate.
  2. Put water, liquid smoke, soy sauce, and brown sugar in the cooking pot when the pressure cooker is turned off. Pork should be added to the saucepan, as well as its juices. The pork should be seasoned with salt before cooking.
  3. High-Pressure mode and a 60-minute timer are selected. Relax your muscles for at least 20 minutes after it beeps to relieve the stress. Remove the lid cautiously when the valve has lowered.
  4. Remove the meat with two forks from the pressure cooker and pulverize it. Serve right away with a side of steaming white rice.
