  • 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.
