The easiest pulled pork ever. So flavorful, smoky and juicy. As you grab the cooked meat to remove it from pot, it starts to fall apart.
And the Bourbon bbq sauce, oh so finger licking good.
Oh, and did we say the pulled pork sandwiches are SO SO DELICIOUSLY YUMMY.
Instant Pot Bourbon Pulled Pork
3 tablespoons brown sugar
4 teaspoons Himalayan salt
1 tablespoons smoked paprika
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 (4-pound) boneless pork shoulder, excess fat trimmed and cut into 3-inch chunks
1 tablespoon avocado oil
1 cup chicken stock
4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 cups favorite bbq sauce
2-3 tablespoons bourbon
Set a 6-qt Instant Pot® to the high saute setting.
In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, salt, smoked paprika, chili powder, oregano, garlic powder, mustard, cayenne pepper, cumin and pepper. Season pork with brown sugar mixture.
Heat avocado oil; working in two batches, add pork and cook until evenly browned, about 3-4 minutes.
Stir in chicken stock and 4 tablespoons vinegar, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the pot.
Select manual setting. Adjust pressure to high, and set time for 40 minutes.
When finished cooking, quick-release pressure according to manufacturer’s directions.
Remove pork from the Instant Pot® and shred the meat using two forks.
Add 1 tablespoon of bourbon to the bbq sauce at a time till you heat the right consistency, making sure not to over power the bbq sauce with bourbon flavor.
Next add 1/4 cup of Bourbon BBQ sauce at a time, mixing in until you get the right consistency of meat to sauce.
Serve pulled pork as sandwiches. Use Hawaiian Hamburger buns.
Spoon on meat to bottom half of bun. Top with your favorite coleslaw.
With the top half of the bun, smother on some bourbon bbq sauce and top bun to make a sandwich.
Serve with sweet potato fries, or any side of your choice.
