What You’ll Need
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 (3-pound) boneless pork butt or shoulder roast
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 (12-ounce) can root beer
- 2 (12-ounce) bottles chili sauce
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
- 1 (8-inch) round corn bread, cut into wedges
What to Do
- In a small bowl, combine salt, pepper, and garlic powder; rub mixture over meat. In a large skillet over high heat, heat oil; sear pork on all sides.
- Place a steamer insert or foil collar in a 6-quart or larger pressure cooker/Instant Pot. Place meat on the insert, fat side up. In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients except corn bread; pour over pork.
- Securely lock lid and over high heat, bring to full pressure; reduce heat just enough to maintain pressure for 60 minutes. Perform a quick release. Check to ensure meat is very tender. If not, place lid on loosely and simmer until fork-tender. Remove meat to a cutting board and pull apart into chunks. (Do not shred.)
- Remove steamer insert. Skim fat from sauce and stir meat back into sauce. Serve meat chunks and gravy with the cornbread.
