Pulled pork is a tasty Southern concoction. Pork shoulder, the preferred cut of pork for this dish, is a tougher cut of meat, but the abundance of marbling in it keeps the meat from drying out during the slow-cooking process and produces savory and tender pulled pork. It takes five to six hours to prepare pulled pork using the traditional slow-cooking method. Using an Instant Pot will decrease the preparation and cooking times dramatically while delivering the same mouthwatering results.
Our Instant Pot pulled pork calls for a spice rub of brown sugar, smoked paprika, mustard powder, salt, and pepper. Feel free to experiment with your spice rub to achieve that perfect sweet and spicy balance.
One of the most common ways to serve pulled pork is on a lightly toasted and buttered brioche bun. There are plenty of other ways to serve up this delicious dish, however.
However you decide to enjoy your pulled pork, preparing it in your Instant Pot is a quick and convenient way of making this flavorful dish.
