Instant Pot Pulled Pork

Instant Pot pulled pork is juicy, tender and down right scrumptious. Enjoy the flavors of delicious BBQ without having to spend hours tending a smoker. We love to eat our pulled pork on toasted buttery bread with pickles for a sandwich that embraces the simple pleasure of good comfort food. The meat will be full of BBQ infused flavors that can be tweaked for your preferred style of sauce.  Pulled Pork is great fresh but keeps well and is very easy to heat up.  My family ate every last morsel of this meat and continue to surprise me with how much food they can make disappear.

Ingredients

In a small bowl; combine all the seasonings together and mix.

Clean and pat the pork dry. Trim off the fat and cut into 2″ x 2″ pieces.

Coat the pork with the seasoning mixture.

Set the sauté to high. Add oil and wait for 30 seconds. Brown all sides of the pork until slightly seared (this should take about 3-4 minutes). 

Remove the pork and set aside; you may need to do this in 3 separate batches to maintain good spacing during cooking.

Deglaze: add chicken broth and scrape the bottom bits off the pan. Add apple cider vinegar.

Return the seared pork to the cooker.

Pressure cook on high for 40 minutes with a natural release (approx. 45-55 min).

Transfer the cooked meat to a bowl/plate.

Use tongs or 2 forks to shred the meat.

Optional: remove/discard the grease that is floating on top of the liquid before returning the meat to the cooker.

Return the meat to the pot. Add BBQ sauce and mix everything together.

Season with salt & pepper.
