Instapot Pot Porketta Roast


Things can be super busy sometimes, so I developed this delicious pork and potatoes meal that’s perfect for the Instapot.  The meat is so tasty and it falls apart when you cut into it. The potatoes are mouth wateringly good and naturally flavoured during the cooking process from the roast spices.  The drippings can be drizzled over the meat and potatoes for an out of this world gravy. It’s a great meal any time of the year and goes from Instapot to table in just over an hour!


  • Pork shoulder 500gm – 1 kg.
  • Porketta seasoning (see Seasoning recipe)
  • Baby potatoes
  • Chicken stock (unsalted) 2 cups

Porketta Seasoning

Combine the following spices in a small bowl, stir until completely combined.

1 tsp onion powder
3 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp dried parsley
2 tsp ground black pepper
2 tsp dried basil
2 tsp dried rosemary
2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsps dried fennel seed
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt


  1. Rub the Porketta Seasoning over the entire pork shoulder.
  2. Add 2 cups of chicken stock to Instapot ensuring trivet is on the bottom of the pot
  3. Lay spiced porketta over trivet in pot.
  4. Add baby potatoes over roast.
  5. Lock on lid and ensure you press the lever on lid to ‘vent steam’.
  6. Set Instapot to “pressure cook” setting.
  7. Cook for 55 minutes, allow natural release of steam


**cooking time may vary depending on weight and thickness of roast
