Ingredients

  • 1 lb. Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Marinated Fresh Pork Loin Filet diced
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 16 oz. dry rotini pasta
  • 4 c. water
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 2 T. butter
  • 2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 c. milk

Instructions

  • Cut pork loin filet into tiny, bite-sized pieces.
  • Press “sauté” on the electric pressure cooker.
  • Heat olive oil and add half of the diced pork in a single layer in pressure cooker.
  • Allow pork to cook for 1-2 minutes before stirring to endure a brown sear.
  • Give it a good stir and continue to cook 2-3 more minutes until pork is done (it’s tender, juicy, and safe to eat once it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees).
  • Remove pork to a platter and repeat with the rest of the pork. Set pork aside to rest while the pasta cooks.
  • Turn pressure cooker off.
  • Add pasta, water, pepper, salt, and butter and cook on manual function, high pressure for 5 minutes.
  • Do a quick release.
  • Remove lid and stir in milk and cheese.
  • Stir, continuously until cheese has melted completely.
  • Pour macaroni and cheese into a serving dish and sprinkle with half of the diced pork. Stir.
  • Top with remaining pork.

Notes

Alternatively, you can use your favorite macaroni and cheese recipe and add cooked pork to it in the end.
