For pulled pork
3-pound shoulder or picnic pork roast
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tablespoon parsley
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon coconut aminos
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
½ cup of chicken bone broth
4 slices Uprising Bread
2 slices preferred cheese
Dill pickle chips
Sliced pickled jalapenos
- Start by trimming the fat from your pork roast and cut it into 4 to 5 chunks that should all be similar in size.
- Preheat your instant pot to high heat using your sear function. In a large mixing bowl, add all dry ingredients and mix together to make a uniform seasoning. Add your pork pieces to the mix and coat well.
- Once the pork is well-coated and the instant pot is up to temp, sear pork on each side for approximately 2 minutes each. Remove pork and set aside on a plate. Repeat this process with all of your pork pieces.
- Once your pork is properly seared, cancel the sear function and add ¼ cup chicken broth to the instant pot to deglaze the bottom of the pot. Make sure to use a wooden spoon to get all the tasty bits from the bottom.
- Once properly deglazed, add remaining chicken broth, apple cider vinegar, coconut aminos, and tomato paste directly into the pot. Place the pork chunks into the liquid, spacing out as best as possible.
- Secure lid and make sure the vent is set to the sealed position. Pressure cook on high pressure for 60 minutes and let the pressure naturally release for 20 minutes. Once fully cooked, remove from instant pot to shred. After you have shredded the pork, return back to the instant pot to soak up all the tasty juices from cooking.
- Now that we have got this far, all that is left is to assemble your pork slider and enjoy. I personally like to toast my Uprising Bread up a bit, then add my pulled pork and a slice of pepper jack cheese, all topped with a few dill pickle slices and pickled jalapenos. Enjoy friends!
Instant Pot VS Slow Cooker: This pulled pork recipe can be done in either the slow cooker or an instant pot. If you’re always on the go, I tend to stick with the instant pot. It all ends up done in no time flat. If you don’t own an Instant Pot or prefer a slow cooker to set and forget as you go about your day, just follow the same directions with the exception of letting it cook on slow for 10-12 hours on low or 8-9 hours on high. For the searing step, you can do this on the stove in a saute pan and follow the process according to the recipe.Buy Now
