  • In the electric pressure cooker, combine the broth, hominy with its juices, pork, and salsa. Stir to combine.
  • Close and lock the lid of the pressure cooker. Set the valve to “sealing,” then select HIGH manual pressure and set the timer for 8 minutes.
  • When the cooking is complete, hit Cancel and quick release the pressure.
  • Once the pressure gauge drops, unlock and remove the lid.
  • Spoon into bowls and serve immediately.


This recipe is for 4 servings of posole.
If you're pressed for time, you can use a jar (16 ounces) of salsa verde instead of making your own.
Leftovers can be stored covered in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
