How to make Instant Pot Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches:

  • Place pork roast in the bottom of the Instant Pot.
  • Pour root beer on top of roast.
  • Place the lid on top of the Instant Pot and move the valve to SEALING. Press the MANUAL (PRESSURE COOK) button and set timer for 60 minutes (or 20 minutes per pound, depending on the size of your roast).
  • When the timer is done, let the pressure do a NATURAL RELEASE (it will take at least 20 minutes, but I even prefer to let the roast sit in there for a couple hours to make sure it is super tender).
  • Remove the lid and shred the roast with 2 forks.
  • Drain the root beer out of the Instant Pot and place the shredded roast back inside. Stir in the bottle of BBQ sauce.
  • Place meat on hamburger buns or rolls and serve.

How to turn this into a freezer meal:

Place roast and root beer into a gallon-sized freezer bag. Place freezer bag into freezer and it will last up to 90 days.

When ready to use, dump ingredients from bag into Instant Pot and add 1/3 cup of water in with the frozen food.

Place the lid on top, move the valve to SEALING, and press the MANUAL button.

Set timer for 90 minutes (or 30 minutes per pound of your roast).

Do a NATURAL RELEASE when the timer is done – I even like to let it sit in the Instant Pot for a few hours so that it falls apart so easily. Follow the rest of the instructions as written.
