This Instant Pot BBQ Pulled Pork Recipe comes together in a matter of minutes and cooks in only 90 minutes! A quick, easy, pretty darn healthy weeknight dinner that’s packed with tender pork and a tangy homemade BBQ sauce!
As promised in my Healthy Coleslaw post last week . . .
the Instant Pot BBQ Pulled Pork Recipe is here!
Sooo goood you guys.
I actually can’t wait for you to make this and top it with the slaw.
But before we get into today’s recipe, I have a quick question . . .
Who’s jumped on the Instant Pot train?!
It took me forever and a day to jump on, but I finally did it and I’m freaking obsessed.
If you’re not sure what an Instant Pot is, think of it as a slow cooker, but instead of cooking slow, it cooks really fast.
It’s like a slow cooker, because often, you can just dump all your ingredients in and walk away, but it’s different, because instead of taking 8 hours to cook, it takes significantly less time.
I’d say that’s a win/win, don’t ya think?!
If you’re still reading, I’m assuming that you’ve jumped on the Instant Pot train.
Whether you’re a complete newbie or a seasoned pro, I highly recommend making this Instant Pot BBQ Pulled Pork.
- It’s suuuuper yummy
- It’s suuuuper easy
- Ketchup (I like the all natural, no sugar added variety, to make it healthier)
- Worcestershire sauce
- Apple cider vinegar
- Cayenne <– juuuuust a touch for a little kick
- Garlic powder
- Mustard powder
Dump half the sauce into your instant pot
Place boneless pork shoulder in your instant pot
Cover pork with sauce
Cook for 90 minutes or until pork easily flakes with a fork
Like how ridiculously easy is that?! If you’re feeling really ambitious, you could even whisk the sauce together ahead of time, and then you literally have like 2 minutes of prep for dinner.
Pretty awesome, right?
And even better?
It tastes AMAZING.
This Instant Pot BBQ Pulled Pork, to me, is classic picnic/cookout food. It’s so tender, a little tangy, a little sweet, and a whole lotta yummy.
Anyone else drooling yet? 😉
