  • 1 (1 oz) packet Au Jus (or Brown Gravy mix)

  1. Add everything to the pot in the order listed and place the lid on. Set the steam release knob to te Sealing position.

  2. Press the Pressure Cook/Manual button or dial and then the +/- button or dial to select 70 minutes. The pot will take several minutes to come to pressure.

  4. When the pin in the lid drops back down, open the lid.

  5. Take out the meat and place it on a dish. At this point you can shred it or leave it in chunks. Cover it and set aside.

  6. Turn on the Sauté setting and when the juices in the pot start to simmer, whisk in the flour mixture. Stir until gravy thickens.

  7. Add the meat back into the gravy.

  8. Serve over mashed potatoes, over rice, or on a bun as a pulled pork sandwich.
