In a third installment of my sponsorship with Ken’s Dressing, I’m sharing another flavorful yet quick meal. Missed the first two recipes? Check out how easy it is to make delicious Muffuletta Sandwiches and Beef Shish Kabob Greek Pitas. One thing we really love about Ken’s Dressings are their versatility. We used the Garlic & Basil Vinaigrette to make the Muffuletta and the Greek Vinaigrette to make the pitas. Today, we’re using Ken’s Simply Asian Vinaigrette to make a flavorful Pulled Pork Asian Rice Bowls.

The ginger, sesame, and soy sauce flavors in Ken’s Simply Asian Vinaigrette pull all of the Asian flavors together nicely and are a real winner with my children.

What I love most about this recipe is how little effort it take to make. Pulled pork is so simple when you make it in the Instant Pot! And, if you make the rice and the pork ahead of time, this meal is a snap to get on the table. Here’s how to make these Pulled Pork Asian Rice Bowls in a jiffy!

Let’s make the Pulled Pork Asian Rice Bowls

Instant Pot Pulled Pork

It’s very easy to make pulled pork in an Instant Pot. Simply combine a pork roast, chicken broth, and salt and pepper in a 6 qt or larger instant pot. Cook on high manual for 45 minutes. Naturally release the pressure for 15 minutes and manually release the remaining pressure. The pork will fall apart with no effort at all.

Simply shred the pork with a fork, then transport to a large bowl. Add the pre-chopped slaw mix and Ken’s Simply Asian Vinaigrette. Combine well, then serve with Jasmine rice, chopped peanuts and cilantro. The fresh ginger, sesame, and soy flavors from the Asian dressing will transport you to Thailand. By the way, if you haven’t been to Thailand, you should go. Highly recommend!

The other great thing about this recipe is that it makes nice leftovers. I was a little worried about reheating the left-over meat and slaw mix. But it works fine to reheat! The cabbage is not ruined at all, in my opinion. After reheating, I do recommend refreshing the Asian flavors with a little more Ken’s Simply Asian Vinaigrette!
