    Things To Grab

    • Instant Pot

    Directions

    1. Heat Instant Pot on the “Sauté” setting.

    2. Rub pork with Chinese five spice, kosher salt, and black pepper; slice pork against the grain into 8 pieces. Add olive oil to Instant Pot and sear pork on all sides until a deep color develops, about 7 minutes. Add rice vinegar, lime juice, and water. Seal lid and pressure cook on HIGH for 1 hour.

    3. Once pork has finished cooking, release seal and allow steam to escape naturally. Once steam has escaped, carefully remove the lid.

    4. Remove pork from Instant Pot and shred into large pieces.

    5. Spread mayonnaise onto split baguettes. Divide pork between 6 buns. Top with carrots, radishes, cucumber, green onions, fresh cilantro, and jalapenos, if desired.
