Easy Pulled Pork Recipe using Instant Pot

Pulled Pork is perfect at Super Bowl football parties, when you have company or just because you want something home-cooked. Using the Instant Pot for this Easy Pulled Pork Recipe is the key!

I know there are many ways to make pulled pork to include using your oven, slow cooker or smoker but I find using the instant pot makes it so tender and flavorful.

I have made pulled pork in the past and it NEVER tasted this flavorful. It fell apart so easily and tasted DELISH! Pulled Pork is perfect for Super Bowl football parties, when you have company or just because you want some comfort food!

When trying to find the perfect pork shoulder, I like to buy between a 4-6 pound whole pork boston butt so that we have enough for leftovers. Normally our family doesn’t enjoy leftovers but this is so good, everyone will eat it for the next few days.

 

My favorite way to make Easy Pulled Pork Recipe using Instant Pot

What’s great about this Pulled Pork Recipe is that it doesn’t take all day to make. I recently bought the Instant Pot IP-DUO60 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker, 6Qt/1000W and I LOVE IT!

I wasn’t sure I would use it that much, but I seriously use it more than I don’t!

It makes dinner time fast and easy. Not only is it a Pressure Cooker but a Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, you can use it for Saute/Browning, as a Yogurt Maker, Steamer & Warmer. Can you believe that one appliance can do the job of seven? I seriously love this pot!

Easy Pulled Pork Recipe using Instant Pot

Yield: 4-6
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Additional Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes

I have made pulled pork in the past and it NEVER tasted this flavorful. It fell apart so easily and tasted DELISH! Pulled Pork is perfect for Super Bowl football parties, when you have company or just because you want some comfort food!

Ingredients

  • 1 Pork Shoulder {we used 4.3 pounds}
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Dry Rub 
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder (most people like to only use 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Barbeque Sauce:
  • Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce 28 ounce {our favorite!}
  • 1 1/2 cups Water

Instructions

  1. Cut your pork shoulder into large pieces. { I had about 6 parts}
  2. Make your Dry Rub and rub it real good into both sides of the meat.
  3. Set "Saute" on your Instant Pot and ADD 2 tbsp of oil
  4. Add meat to brown all sides (3 minutes a side works very well)
  5. Mix 1 1/2 cup of water with 1/2 bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce,
  6. Once all pork has been browned, remove the meat from your Instant Pot
  7. Add mixture of water and BBQ sauce to Instant Pot to deglaze bottom of pot. {Use wooden spoon to scrape bottom of Instant Pot}
  8. Add pork back into Instant Pot
  9. Lock lid and set venting to "Sealing" on Instant Pot
  10. Choose the "Manuel" setting and set to 60 minutes
  11. Wait for pressure to build up {you should see the pressure pin pop up after a few minutes}
  12. After 60 minutes of pressure cooking, carefully release pressure to "Venting"
  13. Use forks or tongs to pull apart all pork {should be super tender and fall apart}
  14. You can either serve or place the pulled pork back in the juices for a bit while you get everything else ready! You can use the rest of the BBQ sauce but we found that we really didn't need it!
