Today was a very busy day for me. My daughter was busy moving from her apartment. I knew she would not have time to cook dinner. One of her favorite meals is pulled pork. Instant Pot Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork is tender and juicy and a hint of spicy perfect on bread or served over rice or even on a pizza.
Pulled Pork in the slow cooker takes all day to cook. Now you can have Instant Pot Pulled Pork on the table in under one hour that is tender and juicy. Dr. Pepper gives it that extra kick that takes the pork from ok to amazing. Instant pot Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork is a favorite of both of my kids. Usually, I like to make a big batch of Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork in the instant pot and put it in the fridge for them to just grab a sandwich whenever they are hungry.
NO worries using soda in the Instant Pot or electric Pressure cooker. You can also try my Instant Pot 7-up Cake and Instant Pot Beer Can Chicken both are made with carbonated beverages and I have had no issues.
