It's SRC time again! Each month, as part of the Secret Recipe Club, we're assigned another blogger, and we get to pick a recipe from their blog to make. This month, I got Terri at Our Good Life. Looking through her archives, I found several recipes I wanted to make - Pasta with Zucchini, Lemon, and Basil, Oat Congee with Fried Egg and Scallions (similar to this Savory Oatmeal), and Impossible Quiche all stuck out. Especially the Impossible Quiche - what a fun and challenging name! However, in the end, I chose her Slow Cooker Mojo Pork and adapted it to my pressure cooker. Definitely enjoying my decision! A scrumptiously savory aroma burst out of the pressure cooker as soon as I opened it, and the flavors were perfectly melded together! I served this Pressure Cooker Mojo Pork on rice. You could also use it in tacos (or taquitos), burritos, or just straight out of the pot! :)

Do you prefer using a slow cooker or a pressure cooker?

  4. I have used a pressure cooker for canning but have never made a meal in one. Mine is pretty large so I don't know if it would work for a small dinner. This mojo sounds fabulous though.

    1. I used a 6 quart one. As long as you have enough liquid covering the bottom, I think you should be good. I might have to try canning with mine next! :)

  5. The flavors sound yummy. I only use my pressure cooker for fresh green beans.

  7. What brand pressure cooker do you use? Is it electric or stove top?
    I've bought a couple and returned both.
    This pork sounds fantastic!

    1. I have a Nesco (an older version of this one - http://amzn.to/2eLpr5l). It's an electric, and I really like it. :) This pork was delicious!

  9. I use to use my pressure cooker all the time. I used it so much, it died. I never replaced it but have often thought about getting a new one. Your mojo pork looks yummy.
    Thanks for sharing at Over The Moon Party,
