- Turn the Instant Pot ON and select “saute” mode, adjust heat to more. When hot, add oil. Brown pork until no longer pink. Add pineapple chunks and oregano. Season with salt and black pepper to taste; mix to combine.
- Add the sauce. Secure the lid to the instant pot and cook for 10 minutes.
- When the time is over, let the pressure release on its own for 5 minutes. Then, carefully turn the valve to “Venting,” to release any extra pressure that might still be in there. Then remove the lid and serve.
