[INSTANT POT/PRESSURE COOKER] MAKE JAPANESE KAKUNI DISH WITH PORK NECKS

This pork neck recipe is inspired by a Japanese simmered pork belly dish called "BUTA NO KAKUNI". Well, it's too much saying "inspired"...it is almost the same recipe when you make BUTA NO KAKUNI. Pork necks are not so popular ingredients in Japan, (but, it is the popular menu in Japanese BBQ restaurants,) I like pork necks in this recipe because they are not as fatty as pork belly and hardly beomce dry. It's super-easy to make, and the pulled meat goes well with ramen, tacos, and sandwiches!
