Ingredients

  • 800g boned pork shoulder
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Preparation method

2 Heat remaining oil in cooker; cook garlic and anchovy, stirring, until fragrant. Stir in undrained tomatoes, the water, oregano, capers and chilli. Return pork to cooker; secure lid. Bring cooker to high pressure. Reduce heat to stabilise pressure; cook for 25 minutes.

3 Release pressure using the quick release method; remove lid. Remove pork, cover; stand 5 minutes then slice thinly. Stir olives into sauce; season to taste. Serve pork with sauce. Sprinkle with some extra oregano if you like. Serve with creamy polenta, if desired.
