Pressure-cooker pork roast


For the glaze

  • Place a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add the butter and let it melt. Add the honey, apple cider vinegar, rosemary, ginger, garlic, salt, pepper, and whisk well.
  • Boil the glaze for 2-3 minutes, until the ingredients are homogenized.
  • Remove and set it aside.

For the pork

  • Place the pork leg on your worktop and tie it with kitchen twine. Set it aside.
  • In a bowl add the paprika, oregano, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, and mix. 
  • Transfer the pork to the bowl with the marinade, add the olive oil, and spread it over the whole surface of the pork. Ideally, refrigerate it for 2-3 hours, covered with plastic wrap, to marinate it.
  • Add the water and the pork into the pressure cooker and seal it with the lid.
  • Turn the safety valve to the proper pressure indicator and boil the pork over medium-low heat for 70 minutes. Ideally, the temperature in the center should reach 68-72ο C (150-160ο F).
  • Depressurize and remove from the heat. 
  • Preheat the oven to 220ο C (430ο F) set to fan.
  • Transfer the pork to a baking pan with a rack and use a serving spoon to spread the sauce from the pressure cooker over it. Roast it for 7-10 minutes. Remove and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • Spread the glaze and serve with baby potatoes and thyme.
