When the oil is hot, add the pork shoulder cut into large cubes and seasoned with salt and pepper. Sear the meat from all sides and remove it from the pot. Add a little more oil and sauté the chopped onion. Once it turns light golden brown, sprinkle with flour and mix thoroughly. Return the meat to the pot and add mushrooms and 2 measuring cups of broth. Season with cumin. Close the pressure lid. Set the programme Meat/Casserole (Pork/ribs) for 18 minutes. Let the steam out and open the lid. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with a side dish of your choice, such as rice prepared in the cooker (Rice cooker programme).
