This dish comes together quickly. The chutney can be made while the meat, simply seasoned, cooks in your Instant Pot. The resulting tart-sweet condiment is absolutely fantastic and could be easily paired with chicken as well as pork or served with goat cheese as a bruschetta. Out of necessity, I also substituted chipotle chiles in adobo sauce for the chilli sauce in the original recipe. Another variation might be to add finely chopped fresh rosemary and garlic to the oil that is rubbed into the meat.
The leftovers are just as good served cold as they were hot! All in all, this is a very elegant dish that required minimum effort.
