For finishing


  • Blend together onion, garlic, and Ro-tel. If you don't have Ro-tel, use a 14 oz can of tomatoes and a 5 oz can of green chilis (poblano-style)
  • Pour into the Instant Pot, add the Tony Chachere or other Cajun Seasoning mix.
  • Add in the pork cubes and stir well.
  • Close the pot and seal. Cook on MEAT setting for 20 minutes. Allow it to release pressure naturally for 10 minutes and then release all remaining pressure.
  • Turn the Instant Pot to Saut√©. When the stew begins to boil, add the cream and stir well.
  • Then add the spinach leaves and cook until wilted and serve


  • To make this with chicken, reduce cooking time to 10 minutes for thighs and 12-14 minutes for chicken breasts depending on thickness. Cut up the chicken after cooking.¬†
  • For best results, use a well-marbled piece of meat and not a lean cut.
  • To reduce the spiciness, lessen the amount of chilis you use.
