How to make Instant Pot Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches:
- Place pork roast in the bottom of the Instant Pot.
- Pour root beer on top of roast.
- Place the lid on top of the Instant Pot and move the valve to SEALING. Press the MANUAL (PRESSURE COOK) button and set timer for 60 minutes (or 20 minutes per pound, depending on the size of your roast).
- When the timer is done, let the pressure do a NATURAL RELEASE (it will take at least 20 minutes, but I even prefer to let the roast sit in there for a couple hours to make sure it is super tender).
- Remove the lid and shred the roast with 2 forks.
- Drain the root beer out of the Instant Pot and place the shredded roast back inside. Stir in the bottle of BBQ sauce.
- Place meat on hamburger buns or rolls and serve.
