This was AMAZING…tender and so full of flavor…I cannot wait to have leftovers in a couple of days. I used a pork shoulder roast and used my Instant Pot set on meat for 75 minutes and NPR…I seared the meat a few minutes on each side in the Roasted Garlic Infused Oil and spices…then added the rest of the ingredients using 2 T Onion Onion instead of a quartered onion, Layer the potato chunks on the top so they will come out in tact and less mushy. You could cut your meat in slices to reduce your cooking time by 30 minutes…ours had a bone so that was not an option.
Found this tip online: *Little Secret Tip: Pork Shoulder Meat (already a cheap cut) is usually quite a bit cheaper in Asian markets marked as Pork Butt Meat or Char Siu Meat. So if you have Asian market near you that sell fresh meat, go check it out.

A few more hints and tips
Why Use Pork Butt Meat?
This cut of pork is one of our favorite cuts. It’s marbled with enough fat to keep the meat moist while cooking. So, remember to pick a piece of pork butt with some nice marble and fat.
Plus, pork butt is a relatively budget cut.
Since it has enough marbling fat, we’re able to cut them into 0.5″ thick slices for this recipe and reduce the pressure cooking time, yet still comes out tender & moist.
