My Instant Pot Pulled Pork recipe is seasoned with a great BBQ rub and creates a fork tender result that takes about an hour to cook.
Scroll up to watch the recipe video first.
Cut the Pork shoulder into two pieces so that it will fit into your pressure cooker. This is easier with boneless pork but you may be able to make it work with bone-in.
Rub the meat all over with the BBQ rub.
Turn on the saute setting in your pressure cooker and add a little oil, then brown the meat on all sides.
Add the small trivet with handles that came with your Instant Pot into the inner pot and pour in 1 cup water. I have a 6qt model, you may need more water for the 8qt. I was only able to fit one piece of the pork shoulder in at a time.
Lock the lid, turn the steam release vent to 'sealing' and using the manual setting, adjust it to cook for 65 minutes.
When the cook time time is up, allow the unit to reduce pressure on its own without opening the steam release vent (Natural Release) for 15 minutes, then release the remaining pressure and open the lid.
Check the meat to see if it cooked enough, you should be able to pull it apart easily if it is. If not simply add the lid back and cook it for 10-15 more minutes.
Once cooked and pulled apart you can add BBQ sauce if desired.
Cook time - How long it takes to cook depends on the size of the piece of meat so it's best to check it after 65 minutes to see if you can pull it apart, if not simply cook it for a little longer.
Servings - 3lbs of pork will make about 8 servings.
Nutrition - If you make the recipe as written then it has about 4g net carbs per serving.
Storage - You can keep the cooked pork in the fridge for three to four days in an airtight container. Or you can freeze it for later.
