👩‍🍳 FAQ

Why is pulled pork tough in the Instant Pot?

When cooking pork in the Instant Pot, it’s important not to release all the pressure too soon. Instead, the pressure should be released slowly. This will make the pork tender.

Is it better to make pulled pork in a crockpot or an instant pot?

Slowly simmering the meat makes it tender and juicy. On the other hand, cooking the meat quickly in a pressure cooker may make the meat a little more tender, but it’s still a great option.

How much liquid should I put in my Instant Pot for pulled pork?

Add at least 1 cup of water or broth to the Instant Pot. Either way, the pork will be flavorful and delicious.
