how to make easy barbecue pulled pork
Whenever pork loin goes on sale, it’s time to stock up to save money and make some pulled pork. We have an easy barbecue pulled pork recipe that you will love. We are making it in the Instant Pot, but you can make it in the slow cooker if you have time to cook it. Either way works.
We found after cooking our pork, it was not cooked to fork tender, so we cooked it in the Instant Pot, twice an hour each time.
how to make pork chops
Did you know that pork loin is the same as pork chops, just it cut into slices? It’s a few dollars less a pound too. So get a pork loin and ask the butcher to cut it into slices for you, and save money!
1 pork loin
1 bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce
1 can apple pie filling
1 cup water
Place the pork loin in the Instant Pot and pour 1 cup of water, the bottle of barbecue sauce and the apple pie filling.
Cover and cook on meat setting for 1 hour. Once it’s done, cook it again for an hour.
You may want to skim fat off the top (or optionally trim the fat off the pork loin before cooking).
If you are cooking in your slow cooker, it will need to cook for 6 to 8 hours.
Once cooked, you can skim off the fat and then use a fork to mix the pork with the barbecue and apples (apples will have dissolved). You may want (if desired) to add more barbecue.
