PRESSURE COOKER BBQ PULLED PORK

One hour of pressure to the most flavorful falling apart pulled pork.  A sweet and spicy dry rub is added for lots of flavors.

In minutes, you can whip up this extremely flavorful dry rub for your pulled pork.  Next, rub it all over q five-pound pork butt.   Put the pork butt into the pressure cooker.    Add the chopped onion, liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, and water.  The liquid is needed to create the pressure in the pressure cooker.  Close and lock the lid, and set the timer for one hour.   There is no need to let the roast sit to absorb all the seasonings.  The pressure cooker enhances the seasonings so well.

Modern Pressure Cookers Better Than Fast Food

Pressure cookers are perfect for the busy mom, grandmother, single dad, or even young professional who does not have time to cook.  They do not want take-out meals, frozen meals, nor pizza.  They can make healthy flavorful meals in minutes using a pressure cooker.  Chili, stews, soups, chicken pot pie, PRESSURE COOKER ROASTSOUTHERN GREEN BEANSCHEESY MACARONI, CHICKEN DUMPLINGS are some of my favorites.  I look forward to posting more of my favorites soups soon.

Pressure cooking is an easy way to cook your food quickly.  Pressure Cooking has been around for a very long time. Today’s pressure cookers especially the electric pressure cookers are far easier to use than the old-fashioned models.  They have simple buttons and gadgets for locking and unlocking the lid, setting the timer, and reading the pressure.

Modern Day Pressure Cookers Are Safe

We have all heard old stories about exploding pressure cookers and meals that end up on kitchen ceilings.  Today’s, pressure cooker has lots of safety features.  These safety features allow excess pressure to escape easily and without a huge mess.

Instant Pot

I get asked often why I do not use an Instant Pot.  The answer is simple.  I have had my Cuisinart Pressure Cooker about fifteen years before the Instant Pot craze.  It works great and so does the four slow cookers I own.  In other words, I do not need another kitchen appliance.

Description

One hour of pressure to falling apart pulled pork.  A sweet and spicy dry rub is added for lots of flavors.


Ingredients

  • One tablespoon cumin
  • One tablespoon paprika
  • Tablespoon granulated garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • Two tablespoons brown sugar
  • One tablespoon kosher salt
  • One tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • Two teaspoons black pepper
  • Crock-Pot Pulled Pork
  • 4 to 5-pound Pork Shoulder (Boston Butt, Pork Butt)
  • Large onion, chopped
  • One tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • One tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 1-1/2 cup water
  • Bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce

Instructions

  1. Mix the rub ingredients together.
  2. Trim the fat off the pork as close as you can.
  3. Rub down the pork with the dry mixture.
  4. Cover all sides with the rub.
  5. Place the pork in the bottom of the pressure cooker.
  6. Add the chopped onion, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, and 1-1/2 cup water.
  7. Place the lid on the pressure cooker and cook on high ONE hour.
  8. Release pressure naturally.  The pressure cooker will be extremely full.  Place a towel over the cooker when releasing pressure.
  9. The bone should easily pull away from the meat and come out.
  10. Remove the pork from the pressure cooker.
  11. Let it cool some and then pull the meat apart with your hands or two forks.  As you pull it, discard the fat.
  12. After you finish pulling it, you can stir in a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce.  Don’t forget the coleslaw!

Notes

  • NO SMALLER THAN 6 QUART PRESSURE COOKER
  • To cook pulled pork even faster, cut it into several large pieces.  Be sure to season each side of all the pieces of pork.
  • Release pressure naturally.  The pressure cooker will be extremely full.  Place a towel over the cooker when releasing pressure.
  • Pulled pork should pull away easily from the bone.  It should easily be pulled into bite-size pieces using a couple of forks.
  • A pork butt, shoulder, lose about 35 to 40 percent of its weight after cooking it. If you use 4 ounces of cooked meat per sandwich which is four sandwiches per pound, you will need 6 pounds of cooked pork to get 24 sandwiches. This would be a 10-pound uncooked pork butt or shoulder. Be mindful that a lot of times people use 6 to 8 ounces per sandwich.  This 5-pound pork roast makes 12 sandwiches 4-ounce sandwiches.
  • If your pressure cooker is smaller than 6-quart DO NOT USE a 5-pound pork butt.
