How To Make Our Instant Pot Sweet and Sticky Pulled Pork Recipe:
To begin this recipe, pull out your Instant Pot and place the pork shoulder in the bottom of the Instant Pot.
Then pour a ½ cup of chicken broth or water if you prefer, in with the pork roast.
Now, in a small mixing bowl combine the bbq sauce, apricot preserves, dryon onion soup mix, dijon mustard, soy sauce, and then mix it all together to form the delicious sauce.
Once the sauce is made up, pour it over top of the roast and place the lid on the Instant Pot.
Make sure to turn the valve on the lid to the SEALING position and then press the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK button and set the timer for 60 minutes.
NOTE: We generally use a rule of thumb that you need 20 minutes per pound. So this is for a 3 pound roast, any bigger make sure to adjust the cook time.
After the time is up, let the Instant Pot do a NATURAL RELEASE of the pressure which should take about 20-25 minutes, but letting it rest longer up to 2-3 hours if you have the time will give you a wonderfully tender pork roast.
When all the pressure is out and the pin has dropped down, remove the lid from the Instant Pot and take out the pork.
Shred the pork with 2 forks and then return the shredded pork to the Instant Pot and mix it into the sauce (or you can leave the pork in the Instant Pot and use a hand mixer to shred it and mix the meat into the sauce).
After the meat is shredded, serve it on hamburger buns and enjoy!
