Recipe for Pressure Cooker Caraway Pork Roast with Sauerkraut. The addition of caraway seeds in this recipe adds a delicious nutty flavor to the pork as it cooks.


  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons caraway seeds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 1/2 to 3-pound boneless pork loin roast
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 can (12 ounces) beer
  • 1 pound sauerkraut, drained and rinsed under cold water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock


  1. 1. Combine the garlic, caraway seeds, salt, and pepper in a small bowl to form a paste. With a knife, score the top and bottom of the roast, all over, about 1/4 inch deep. Rub the garlic mixture into the cuts.
  2. 2. Heat the olive oil in a pressure cooker over high heat. Add the roast and brown evenly on all sides. Remove the roast.
  3. 3. Add the onion and cook for 1 minute. Add the beer. Cook for 1 minute. Add the sauerkraut, bay leaf, and chicken stock. Place the roast on top of the sauerkraut.
  4. 4. Cover and bring to high pressure over high heat. Lower the heat to stabilize the pressure. Cook for 35 minutes.
  5. 5. Remove from the heat. Release the pressure with a quick-release method. Unlock and remove the cover. Test the roast with a fork; the fork should penetrate easily. If not tender, cover and cook under pressure for an additional 10 minutes.
  6. 6. Remove the roast and let sit for 10 minutes before slicing.
