Hawaiian Pulled Pork - Instant Pot Recipe
- 5 lb pork butt or shoulder
- Dry Rub:
- ½ tsp ground ginger
- ½ tsp celery seed
- ½ tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 8 oz can crushed pineapple
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- ¼ cup tomato sauce
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 1 tbs rice wine vinegar
- 3 garlic cloves peeled and halved
- 1 tbs freshly grated ginger
- Dry pork butt with paper towel and set aside.
- For the Dry Rub: In a small bowl, combine all dry rub ingredients. Massage dry rub into all sides of the pork. Refrigerate covered for up to 1 hour or overnight.
- For sauce: Combine sauce ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until sauce reduces by a quarter and starts to thicken. Cool for 5 minutes. Add to a food processor and pulse until smooth.
- Place pork butt into the Instant Pot and pour sauce over the meat. Lock the lid.
- Press the Manual button and adjust time to 85 minutes. When timer beeps, naturally release until valve drops. Check the pork to make sure it falls apart. If not, press the saute button and simmer an additional 10 minutes.
- With meat inside the Instant Pot, use two forks and pull the pork apart. Stir pork with sauce. Serve using a slotted spoon.
