When pork is almost done, prepare Cornmeal Biscuits: In a loarge bowl, mix flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter. Add yogurt, stir just to form sticky ball. Gather into ball and knead slightly on floured board. Roll or pat out about ½" thick. Using a 2½" cutter, cut 12 rounds.

While biscuits are baking, mix cornstarch and cream in a small bowl; blend into pork mixture. Increase cooker heat setting to HIGH; cover and cook until sauce is hot and bubbly (10-15 minutes). Season to taste. Arrange 6 biscuits around pork mixture in cooker. Serve remaining biscuits hot in a basket.
