Just discovered Trader Joe’s new frozen, gluten-free cauliflower pizza crust, and WOW is it good! I was playing with some recipes for pizza and decided to make this yummy Korean BBQ Cauliflower Pizza. Really, the crust is so good that it’s hard to tell the difference. The pizza crust bakes so quickly and then you can add whatever toppings you are craving on a pizza! This pizza features a Korean BBQ sauce (I added some Gochujang — Korean chili paste — to store-bought BBQ sauce), topped the pizza with fresh mushrooms, green and red onions, shredded chicken, lots of cheese and fresh cilantro. Could not get any easier than that, am I right? Leave off the chicken for vegetarian. Serve with a side salad or make this an appetizer. Either way, you’re going to want several slices!

Ninety minutes to make a fantastic Korean dish? Heck, yeah! This Korean-inspired pulled pork recipe is a sticky, slightly spicy, flavorful take on pulled pork, made fast in your Instant Pot pressure cooker! We borrowed this recipe from Lane Patten with the awesome food blog, With Two Spoons. You can just smell the aromas wafting through your kitchen from the wonderful Korean flavors like gochujang sauce, garlic and ginger, sesame oil, and other seasonings. Lane uses boneless pork shoulder that literally falls apart once cooked in the slow cooker. Top it with a poached egg, so pretty! Makes a quick meal for those busy weeks now that school’s back in session! Enjoy, and thank you Lane!

Pressure Cooker Korean-Inspired Pulled Pork
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Serves: 10
Ingredients
  • 4 pound boneless pork shoulder, trimmed and cut into 4 pieces
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¾ cup water
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup gochujang sauce
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 Tablespoon lime zest
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger
  • Rice for serving
  • Optional garnishes: sliced green onions, lime zest, sesame seeds, peanuts, poached egg
Instructions
  1. In a medium-sized bowl combine garlic, water, soy sauce, gochujang sauce, brown sugar, rice vinegar, sesame oil, lime zest, lime juice and grated ginger to make a sauce. Press sauté button on the Instant Pot. Place pork into the Instant Pot and sear, turning pork every 2 minutes. Pour sauce over the pork in the Instant Pot. Press the manual button on the Instant Pot. Adjust time to 45 minutes. Press the start button and the Instant Pot will start coming to pressure (Will take approximately 10 minutes to get to pressure, and then will start a count down).
  2. When the Instant Pot beeps (after the 45 minutes have counted down), allow natural pressure release (this will go faster if you turn the Instant Pot off, but this is not necessary). Natural pressure release will take approximately 30 minutes.
  3. Remove pork from the Instant pot and pull with two forks. Add a few tablespoons of sauce to keep pork moist. Press sauté button on Instant Pot. Reduce the sauce to desired thickness (I prefer my sauce thin so it soaks into the rice, but if you prefer your sauce thicker, combine 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water to make a slurry, and then add to sauce while reducing.) Serve pork over rice and drizzle with sauce. Garnish with options listed above!
