We fired up the Instant Pot again for another fantastic recipe! Instant Pot Pulled Pork. OMG! Y'all! If you don't have an Instant Pot yet, this is the recipe that should convince you to go get one. AMAZING pulled pork in an hour. This tasted better than any BBQ joint. I was shocked at how great this tasted.

This Instant Pot Pulled Pork is super simple to make. Rub a pork shoulder/pork butt with a quick homemade or store bought BBQ rub and let the Instant Pot work its magic. I used a homemade rub that I shared below. You can also buy a jar of BBQ seasoning if you don't want to make your own. Either way is fine.

We ate this Instant Pot Pulled Pork on hamburger buns, but it would also be great on a baked potato or on top of nachos. I wasn't kidding when I said this was good. It was the best pulled pork I've ever eaten. I won't be able to eat pulled pork at any of our favorite BBQ joints ever again. SO tender and packed full of great flavor! You really need to give this a try! It is PERFECT for your upcoming Memorial Day celebration!! All you need is some BBQ sauce and coleslaw and you are set!
