It's summertime! Let's make BBQ Pulled Pork, in a pressure cooker!

BBQ Pulled Pork
Yields: 4 servings


  • 1 ½ lbs pork shoulder (pork butt)
  • Cooking oil or olive oil
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1 Tbsp. liquid smoke
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 onion, cut in half lengthwise
  • Instructions:
    1. Cut pork into fist-sized chunks or smaller. In a large bowl, season the pork with the brown sugar, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder.
    2. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator, if desired.
    3. Heat the pressure cooker on high and add oil.
    4. Add pork and sear on all sides. Once seared, add the beef broth, liquid smoke, and onion.
    5. Close and lock the lid in place.  Heat on high until pressure builds and the indicator rod rises.
    6. Turn down the heat when the second white ring appears on the indicator rod, and cook for 20 minutes.
    7. Turn off the heat, and release the pressure by pressing the button on the handle or by running cold water over the lid in the sink.  Once all pressure is released, open the lid.
    8. Remove pork and pull apart while hot with two forks.
    9. Serve with BBQ sauce and mini-hamburger buns and dill pickle slices.
