  • 2 pounds boneless pork ribs, cut into 1-inch chunks Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups great northern beans (or similar)
  • 1 cup beef broth

  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • ½ white onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons dried rosemary
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups herbed croutons
  • 1 cup goat cheese, crumbled (optional)


Heat olive oil to medium high heat in a large skillet. Sprinkle pork ribs with salt and pepper, then brown in the skillet on all sides.

Add the pork to the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker, then add the beans, broth, carrot, celery, onion, rosemary and garlic. Seal the pressure cooker and cook on the stew setting for 35 minutes.

Dish cassoulet into 4-6 large soup bowls, then top with equal amounts of croutons and goat cheese. Serve.
