Instant Pot Pulled Pork is fork tender, juicy, and full of flavor from the BBQ Spice Rub. You won’t believe how easy it is to make this pulled pork recipe with your Instant Pot.
Have you fallen for the Instant Pot yet? If you like slow cooked foods, but hate the wait, then the Instant Pot is for you. This pulled pork recipe can be cooked in 1 1/2 hours instead of 8 hours in a slow-cooker.
If you haven’t purchased an Instant Pot yet, I have included slow-cooker directions. I promise the pork will turn out equally as good.
WHAT IS THE BEST CUT OF MEAT FOR PULLED PORK?
I prefer pork shoulder when making pulled pork.
Pork shoulder is often referred to as Boston butt or pork butt. Despite its name, this cut of meat actually comes from the upper part of the shoulder. It has a great ratio of fat and lean meat making it perfect for this Instant Pot Pulled Pork recipe.
CAN YOU OVERCOOK PULLED PORK?
It is possible to overcook meats in the Instant Pot, but more times than not this cut of meat is under cooked. To get 4 – 5 pounds of pork shoulder tender, it must be cooked for 90 minutes at pressure.
