This Instant Pot recipe for Caramelized Pork and Eggs (Thit Kho Trung) is quick and easy to make and tastes just as good as the slow-cooked version. Coated with a homemade caramel sauce, meaty chunks of pork are pressure cooked with hard-boiled eggs in a sweet and savory sauce. Infused with coconut water and fish sauce, the pork is flavorful and fork-tender. The abundant eggs, my favorite part of this dish, are deliciously marinated and perfectly cooked. The best part about this recipe is everything can be done in the Instant Pot including making the eggs and parboiling the pork. I hope you give this recipe a try!
Cover with the pressure cooker lid and set the steam release handle to "Sealing".
Transfer the pork into a large colander. Rinse the meat under cold running water, washing away any loose bits of meat and residue. Drain well and transfer into a large bowl.
Cook the sugar until it caramelizes and becomes a honey color, approximately 10-15 minutes. Let the sugar cook while continuing with the next step.
Peel and smash the garlic cloves. Cut the brown onion into thick wedges.
Add the pork and quickly combine together, coating it in the caramel sauce. Press the "Keep Warm/Cancel" button to stop the "Sauté" mode.
Cover with the pressure cooker lid and set the steam release handle to "Sealing". Press the "Manual" button and set the cook time for 30 minutes on High Pressure. When the cook time is completed, allow for a 15 minute natural pressure release. Release the remaining pressure.
