How to Make Pulled Pork
- Cutting a pork shoulder into 3 inch chunks lets it cook faster and cook evenly. This way you won’t get parts that are over cooked and parts that are tender.
- Generously season the pork on all sides so you get flavoring in every bite.
- Use water or a little chicken broth in the bottom of the Instant Pot so their is enough moisture.
Can you freeze leftover pulled pork?
- Definitely, you can freeze it! Just place in an air tight container or even freezer safe bag and place in the freezer for 2-3 months. Make sure the pork is cool before you seal the container.

So juicy and tender, it is going to make you rethink pork! And while you are at it, make sure you try Smothered Pork Chops, they are probably my all time favorite pork recipe.
