Instant Pot Pulled Pork Recipe
- 2 tablespoons paprika
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoons sea salt
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 pork shoulder or pork butt 3- 4 pounds boneless
- 1 cup Coca-Cola
- 1 cup water or chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 cups barbecue sauce optional
Mix the paprika, brown sugar, garlic powder, chili powder, ground mustard, and salt together in a bowl.
Cut pork in half, then rub the spice blend all over each piece of pork. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes, or overnight.
Turn the Instant Pot on Sauté and once it says "hot", add the oil.
Sauté pork 3-4 minutes on each side until it is brown. Turn off Instant Pot.
Add Coke, water and Worcestershire sauce then close the lid. Make sure the seal is closed.
Cook on “Manual” or "Meat/Stew" button for 90 minutes.
When done, let the pressure naturally release (about 10 minutes).
Turn pressure valve to release any more pressure and open the lid.
Place the pork onto a plate to shred with two forks.
If you like BBQ sauce on your pork, remove the excess liquid in pot and place the pulled pork back into the Instant Pot. Stir in about 1-2 cups of BBQ sauce, close the lid and place on warm until ready to serve.
