  • Instant Pot


  • 8 oz spaghetti
  • 1 lb center pork
  • 2 C water
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 lb baby Boy Choy
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 3 Tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp Mirin
  • 1 Tbsp oil of your choice vegetable, canola, etc.

Optional (to taste)

  • salt
  • pepper
  • sesame seeds


  • Wash your produce. Slice your onions, Bok Choy, carrots, pepper - set aside. Mince garlic. Set aside also.
  • Dice the pork and add to a large gallon ziplock with half of the dark soy sauce and sesame oil. Mix until well combined.
  • Using the sauté setting on the Instant Pot, add 1 Tbsp oil of your choice. Add the pork to the pot and sauté until golden brown. Remove the meat, set aside.
  • Add minced garlic to the Instant Pot; brown for 30 seconds. Add water to the instant pot and de-glaze by scraping clean with a spatula.
  • Break the spaghetti in half. Put down in a crisscross pattern (helps prevent sticking). Do not stir or move the noodles once down. Gently push the pasta down so it is under the liquid
  • Close the Instant Pot; cook on high pressure for 4 minutes. Immediately release the pressure and allow to rest for 4 minutes.
  • Open the pot; stir the noodles around. Gently add the soy sauce (dark and light), hoisin sauce, and mirin to the noodles and stir until combined.
  • Turn on the sauté setting. Add the sliced Bok choy, red bell pepper, onions, carrots, and pork to the pot and stir frequently for about 5-8 minutes. (Depending on how crispy you like your vegetables.)
  • Garnish - salt, pepper, and sesame seeds (to taste). Serve hot.
