Step 1

1 In the Instant Pot, use the sauté function to sear the pork. Melt the bacon fat, add the pork, searing well on all sides. Sprinkle the pork with salt and pepper as it sears. When dark brown, remove the pork from the pan, and set aside. Leave any drippings in the pan.

Step 2

2 Place the chopped onions in the pan and sauté along with the ginger and garlic.

Step 3

3 When the onions are tender and browned, add the five-spice powder, orange zest, juice, and rice wine vinegar. Let simmer for 1 to 2 minutes. Turn off the sauté function. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Step 4

4 Place the seared pork back into the instant pot. Cook on high pressure for 25 minutes. Use natural release for 20 minutes. Pork should be fork tender.

Step 5

5 Shred the meat and serve with pan drippings. If the sauce needs thickening, use the sauté function to reduce the pan juices (about 8 to 10 minutes) before serving.
