3.Release pressure using the quick release method ; remove lid. Remove pork from cooker; strain cooking liquid into small saucepan.
4.Place pork, rind-side up, on wire rack over large shallow baking dish; sprinkle rind with salt. Preheat griller (broiler). Grill pork about 10 minutes or until crackling is browned lightly and crisp.
