My mama’s favorite Chinese dish can now be made in minutes in my own home!  Tender strips of pork tossed with loads of veggies.  Perfect dish for a busy night!  Recipe from The Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook by Barbara Schieving.


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha (I used 1 tablespoon for extra heat)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds pork loin or boneless pork chops, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 package (8 ounces) fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 can (8 ounces) bamboo shoots, sliced matchstick style
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 bag (14 ounces) coleslaw (I used a carrot, brussel sprout, cabbage mix)
  • 1 scallion, white and green parts, chopped
  • 12 thin flour tortillas or lettuce cups


  1. Select Simmer/Saute to preheat the pressure cooking pot.  When hot, add the vegetable oil and coat the bottom of the pot.  Add the eggs and cook for about 3 minutes, without stirring, to create an omelet.  Turn off the pressure cooker.  Transfer the omelet to a cutting board and slice it into small, thin pieces.
  2. Add the water, soy sauce, peanut butter, honey, white vinegar, Sriracha, garlic powder, and pepper to the pressure cooking pot and stir to combine.  Stir in the pork, mushrooms, and bamboo shoots.  Lock the lid in place.  Select High Pressure and 5 minutes cook time.
  3. When the cook time ends, turn off the pressure cooker.  Use a quick pressure release.  When the valve drops, carefully remove the lid.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the cornstarch and cold water until smooth.  Add the slurry to the pot.  Select Simmer/Saute and simmer for a few minutes, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens.  Stir in the sesame oil, coleslaw, and chopped egg.  Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with scallions.  To serve, divide the pork mixture among the tortillas and roll up to enclose.  Alternatively, fill lettuce cups with pork mixture.
