Breakfast for dinner is a staple in my house. Partly because it’s fun, and partly because breakfast always seems to come together way faster than dinner does, am I right? On busy weeknights, when I want to eat something fast and delicious, I usually throw together a quick potato hash, using veggies and leftover protein I have in the fridge. Throw a fried egg and some hot sauce on top, and you have a super quick and easy dinner that everyone will love. This Instant Pot pulled pork hash does just the trick!
Now, for weeknight dinners, I need two criteria…Easy and Fast.
(Delicious is a given, because if the food I’m making is anything other than delicious, it’s going in the trash lol.)
You can’t get easier than Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork. Their products provide solutions for real life, Real Fresh, Real Flavor, Real Fast. Smithfield Marinated is 100% Fresh Pork that is perfectly marinated and seasoned, which is half of the battle if you ask me. How many times have you forgotten to defrost and marinate something, and then just end up ordering take out? I feel your pain, I’m guilty as charged!
Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is made with real, all-natural ingredients like pork broth, vinegar, salt and spices. They use ingredients you can pronounce. Available in your local Walmart Supercenter’s fresh meat section, Smithfield Marinated Fresh Pork is on rollback through the month of April.
So what are you waiting for? Go make your life easy and get some today. Smithfield® helps me put together a delicious, hassle-free meal in no time, on any night, no excuses.
For fast cooking, I love using my Instant Pot. It makes whipping up dinner so quick and easy, which is what I’m all about on busy days. While the pork is cooking, you can make your hash. For an even faster weeknight meal, make your pork the night before, and shred it up. At that point, you can literally put this pulled pork hash together in 25-30 minutes. Leftovers are fantastic inside of a breakfast burrito or as an addition to an omelette/frittata.
Instant Pot Pulled Pork Hash
A savory dish featuring pulled pork made in the Instant Pot!
- 1 Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filet
- 2 tbsp olive oil divided
- 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
- 1 jar tomatillo salsa
- 1 1/2 lbs new (red) potatoes
- 3/4 cup poblano peppers, diced
- 3/4 cup white onion, diced
- 2 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- salt and pepper, to taste
- fried eggs
- chipotle mayo
- hot sauce
Place the cut potatoes into a microwave safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, then microwave the potatoes for 10-12 minutes, until they're tender. Set aside.
While the potatoes cook, heat a saute pan on medium heat. Cut the pork into 8 pieces. Add one tablespoon of oil into the pan, then sear the pork for 2 minutes on each side, just to get them a nice golden color.
Add the pork to your Instant Pot insert. Pour the tomatillo salsa and chicken broth over the pork. Close the instant pot and press the meat/stew button. Once the pork is done, allow the steam to release naturally.
In the same pan that you seared the pork, add the remaining tablespoon of oil. Over medium heat, add the diced poblanos and onions. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add the potatoes, paprika, garlic powder and cumin. Cook for 5 minutes, tossing occasionally.
Remove the pork from the instant pot and shred with a fork.
Layer the hash mixture with the shredded pork.
Add a fried egg, or whatever other toppings you like!
This can probably be done in a crockpot as well also….right? (It will just take away from the “time” factor. I only ask because I do not have an Instapot in my appliance collection just yet! LOL)
Oh definitely. You can cut up the roast and cook it on high for 4 hours or low for 6.
