This Zippy Peach Turkey has the sweetness of peach but the zesty flavor of fresh ginger and Sriracha sauce. And even better, this tender, flavorful meat will be ready in no time, made in your Instant Pot.

I’ve been using my Instant Pot quite a bit lately. This isn’t a sponsored post or anything like that, but I will say this: I now use this even more than my traditional slow cookers, because the Instant Pot is a slow cooker, and a rice cooker, and a yogurt maker, and many other things besides an electric pressure cooker.

But if you don’t have an Instant Pot, no worries! I have the slow cooker instructions for this recipe included.

To Make This Recipe You Will Need:

  • peach preserves, jelly or jam
  • orange juice
  • soy sauce
  • garlic
  • Sriracha sauce
  • fresh ginger
  • turkey breasts (or thighs)
  • rolls
  • bowl whisk
  • Instant Pot

To begin, in a bowl combine orange juice, soy sauce, garlic, Sriracha sauce, ginger, and peach preserves. Whisk them together, breaking up the preserves as much as possible.

It’s going to be a little lumpy and that is quite alright. It will melt into the sauce as it cooks in your instant pot.

Place the turkey breasts (or thighs) in your instant pot.

Pour the sauce over the top of the turkey.

Place the cover on the Instant Pot and press the “manual setting” on the controls. Set the time to 90 minutes. Allow your instant pot to cook the full cycle.

After it has cooked, pull the turkey apart with two forks. Serve this on rolls.

Enjoy!

You can also serve this pulled turkey over French fries and top with shredded cheese.

Any leftover meat will make amazing paninis the next day for lunch. My favorite are made with Havarti cheese on sour dough bread. Heavenly!

To Make this in a Slow Cooker

This recipe can also be made in your slow cooker. Prepare as above, placing the turkey and sauce into your slow cooker instead.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Shred and serve as above.

  1. So I made this yesterday in the slow cooker. About 7 hours for just under 4 lbs. It was delicious and my nineteen year old daughter stated, “this is fantastic.” I used the remaining liquid the pork loin cooked in and created a glaze for the pulled pork. This glaze, over the pork, was also very yummy. Hopefully, we are going to have the paninis today. Thank for the great recipe!

  2. Peach pork?! that sounds amazing! I’d even slow this down and give it a good smoke over some pecan wood chips too!

  5. I haven’t purchased an instapot yet because we have a small apartment and really don’t have the space for yet another appliance; however, we are moving in a couple of weeks and I am thinking about replacing my pressure cooker (currently in storage much to the hubby’s dismay) and slow cooker with the instapot. And if it makes yogurt too . . .well they certainly will get the hubby excited because he is a huge fan of yogurt.

    As for this peach pulled pork. I looks so wonderful and I love all the flavors you have infused into it.

  6. I’ve been toying with the idea of getting an instapot. My friends seem to just love them. I just wonder how much I would actually use it… but recipes like this inspire me to get one!

  7. Love this, the perfect combination of spicy, sweet and savory! I think the added orange juice replace to spot on the usual sugar or honey! Plus it s healthier!
