Pork Roast with Apple Gravy

Well it’s back to the grind and time to figure out dinner yet again

Fortunately I own an Instant Pot, and with about 20 minutes of prep I know I can make a delicious home cooked dinner without having to stand on top of it

What’s great about the Instant Pot is you can choose to use it as a pressure cooker or a slow cooker

I’m going to keep this one fairly simple

I’m starting off here with a 3 pound loin pork roast

Generously season with kosher salt and ground black pepper

Now I’m going to pressure cook this in my Instant Pot which also has a browning function

If your using a regular slow cooker or roasting in the oven do this next part in a pan

Browning the meat first forms a crust which will help seal in the juices

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium high heat until just smoking

Sear for 4-6 minutes

Season the other side

Flip and sear another 4-6 minutes

Next we will need 1 onion, 1 celery stalk, 2 apples (I’m using 1 Granny Smith and 1 McIntosh), 2 tablespoons of Gravy Master and one 12 ounce beer (of your choice)

Peel and chop the onion and dice the celery

Add these to the pot and saute 2-4 minutes

Next I’m going to core the apples

Discard the cores

I’m using the apples for flavor and will discard them after cooking so I leave the skins on

Add the apples to the pot and saute 1-2 minutes

Next we are going to pour in our beer

Then add in the Gravy Master and give it a stir

Place the roast on top fat side up

20170522_172357

Seal and pressure cook on high for 1 hour and 15 minutes

If using a slow cooker use the rule of thumb of 3-4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low

Once the the time is up and the pressure has released on its own I test the pork to see that it is fork tender

Take the roast out and set aside to rest at least 10 minutes while we work on the gravy

20170522_183832

Strain the liquid into a pot and discard the solids

Bring this to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer

20170522_183844

Next we will make a roux (thickener) for the gravy

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a pan

Whisk in 1/4 cup of flour

Cook until bubbly and lightly browned

Whisk this into the gravy and allow to thicken

Start slicing the pork thinly
