2largerusset potatoes, peeled and cubed
2tablespoons minced garlic
Add one tablespoon of the olive oil to the Instant Pot and turn the pot on to the saute setting. Heat the oil for one minute.
Sprinkle the salt and pepper over the entire outside of the pork then add the pork shoulder to the hot oil in the Instant Pot. Sear each side of the pork for 4 minutes (cooking all 4 sides for 4 minutes, making it 16 minutes of searing time).
Remove the pork shoulder from the Instant Pot and set aside on a plate for now.
Add the mushrooms to the pot and cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the onions, garlic, potatoes, carrots and bay leaf to the Instant Pot and stir again.
Add the chicken stock and red wine to the pot and stir, scraping the bottom of the pot with a spoon to get all the cooked bits of veggies off the bottom.
Add the Instant Pot trivet to the pot, placing it on top of the veggies. Place the seared pork roast on top of the trivet and then cover the pot, seal it and set it to cook on high pressure for 60 minutes.
Once the 60 minutes of pressure cooking is done, do a quick pressure release. Be careful as the steam coming out of the pot is very hot!
Remove the pork and veggies from the Instant pot, leaving behind the liquid.
In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and cold water. Whisk this mix into the hot liquid in the Instant Pot. This will make a delicious, thick gravy.
Slice the pork roast and divide it between plates with the veggies. Pour some of the gravy over each plate and enjoy while hot!
You can make this recipe in the slow cooker as well. Sear the port and cook the veggies in a large skillet and then transfer them to a slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 6 hours. Make the gravy as directed and enjoy!
