The Easiest Instant Pot Pulled Pork

This recipe, adapted from Make It Easy, is one of the easiest recipes out there, calling for just 3 ingredients. Once you master this basic recipe, consider riffing on it. Add smashed garlic cloves, a halved jalapeno, and/or fresh or dried oregano to the mix. You can also rub the pork with cumin and coriander and brown before adding everything else and setting the pressure cooker to do its thing. Carnitas is as delicious dressed up as it is dressed down.

Instant Pot Mississippi Pork Sandwiches

My family loved Mississippi Roast and Mississippi Roast Gyros so much that I decided to make a pork roast using the same seasonings and broth and see how it came out. Well, the results were awesome! Same great flavor only this time it was pork instead of beef. I shredded up the pork and let it sit in the juices until we were ready to eat. I served the shredded pork on toasted hoagie buns with melted provolone cheese on top. Everyone loved this meat!

Three reasons you should make this recipe:

  1. Pork is cheap. A lot cheaper than beef. I bought my pork at Smith’s (Kroger) for around $1.70 per pound.
  2. This shredded meat is versatile. You can serve it on toasted buns as a sandwich, as a roast with mashed potatoes (or another starch like rice) or even on a salad (that’s how my salad-loving husband ate it).
  3. It serves a crowd. You can make this recipe without a lot of fuss and serve a large group of people. You can make the slow cooker version of the recipe if you prefer too.

A couple of notes about the ingredients:


Pork Roast–there are several types of pork roasts out there. However, for these Instant Pot Mississippi Pork Sandwiches I used a budget friendly pork loin roast (not pork tenderloin). I find that cooking pork loin in the Instant Pot for a little longer than an hour works very nicely.

Better than Bouillon–I have really come to love and appreciate Better than Bouillon products* lately. I used the chicken base in this recipe. I buy mine in a large container at Costco and it stays good in my fridge for a very long time.

Pepperoncinis–you can find these small pickled yellow/green peppers next to the pickles. They do add a bit of spice to the dish but it is not overwhelming. My 9-year-old ate the roast with no problems.

What Pressure Cooker Did You Use?

To make Instant Pot Mississippi Pork Sandwiches I used my 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1*. I love this Instant Pot because it has the yogurt making function which I use almost weekly. It has two pressure settings (high and low), and there are also little slots in the handles so that you can rest the lid there instead of putting it down on your counter-top.

Chef cooking tips for Cuban pork sandwiches

  • The easiest way to make pulled pork is in an Instant Pot. Be sure to sear the pork butt (aka Boston butt) to add extra flavor to the meat. The pork can be made in advance. Just shred and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Save the delicious liquid from cooking the pork to serve as an au jus dip for the Cuban pulled pork sandwiches. Pour it into a 4 cup glass measuring cup. The fat will float to the top and it can be skimmed off. Warm and serve in small dipping bowls.
  • I like an airy loaf of ciabatta bread for making the sandwiches. Some good substitutes are French or Italian loaves or sturdy 6-inch rolls.
  • Using a panini press to heat the sandwiches adds a crispy crust. The Cuban pork sandwiches can also be served without heating them.
  • I can make press 2 of these BIG sandwiches at a time. Keep the pressed sandwiches warm in a 300 degree F oven on a baking sheet covered with foil. Then serve them all at once.

Instant Pot Apple Pulled Pork Sandwiches

These Instant Pot Apple Pulled Pork Sandwiches are easy to make using the Instant Pot. The pulled pork turns out tender and delicious.

Do you own an Instant Pot? I do now! Instant Pot recipes kept popping up in my facebook newsfeed daily which piqued my interest.

I started scouring the internet for information to learn as much as I could about this popular pressure cooker. I even dragged my husband in on my quest to discover more about this new way of cooking.

At first, he wasn’t excited until he learned that he could cook ribs, meatloaf, lasagna, desserts, and so much more in the Instant Pot.

He even surprised me with my very own Instant Pot yesterday. He went to three different stores and finally found one at Walmart.

My husband and I watched many youtube videos and did the water test several times before we felt comfortable enough to use the Instant Pot.

We had a hard time figuring out how to set the time on the pressure cooker thank goodness for youtube!

We even learned a simple trick of throwing a kitchen towel over the quick release valve to stop the steam from going all over the place.

After many hours of watching youtube videos, we decided to try an easy recipe like these Instant Pot Apple Pulled Pork Sandwiches.

We figured this recipe would be a great test run for us. Pulled Pork is usually easy to make no matter

if you choose to cook it in a slow cooker, in an oven, stove top, on a grill, or in Instant Pot. We found using the Instant Pot is all about trial and error.

It took 90 mins for this Instant Pot Apple Pulled Pork to cook which we thought was terrific.

If you like it a little bit more tender you could leave it cook a little longer. We didn’t have to do anything except put all the ingredients in the Instant Pot with the Boston Butt Pork Roast and turn it on and let it cook.

The only thing that confused us was how much liquid to add to the recipe.

I read in the manual that came with the pressure cooker we should have no less than 18 fl. ounces in the Instant Pot when using it.

I thought this was a bit much especially since I saw a lot of recipes where people used a lot less liquid.

Nevertheless, we added a little over 2 cups of Apple Juice instead of water to the pulled pork so it could have a sweet taste.

We love the way the Instant Pot Apple Pulled Pork Sandwiches turned out and can’t wait to cook many more recipes in our new Instant Pot.

We paired our pulled pork sandwiches with Zapps Pickle Chips and some sliced pickles. You could serve the sandwiches with potato salad, coleslaw, french fries, or chips.

These pulled pork sandwiches are perfect to serve a crowd for lunch, dinner, or at a backyard summer picnic.

Also, make sure to drain the pulled pork if needed. If you’re looking for an instant pot check out this 8 quart LuX 80 like we have.

Go Lean with Pork Tenderloin

Pulled pork is commonly done with large cuts of pork shoulder/butt, which are large in size and contains lots of fat. Pork tenderloin, on the other hand, is a very lean and tender cut of pork. It&rsquos also much smaller in size. The average pork tenderloin is usually about 1.25 lbs. in size. Often times, pork tenderloin is sold in packages of two and can be as inexpensive as 10 bucks.

Thickening the braising liquid

  1. Mix water and cornstarch together and stir until it&rsquos smooth.
  2. Turn the Instant Pot&rsquos sauté function on and bring the braising liquids to a boil.
  3. Add the cornstarch slurry, stirring constantly as it simmers until the sauce starts to tighten up. It will go from watery to viscous. Not overly thick or pasty, it just adds more body to the braise.

Lid the pot. Set to HIGH pressure with 25-minute cook time. When cook time is up, let pressure naturally release 5 minutes. Quick release remaining pressure.
