So good. This one of those borderline ridiculous, everything but the kitchen sink, crockpot recipes. But the result is totally worth it. Sticky sweet, salty, with a little heat. If you’re looking for a good, sloppy, bbq pulled pork, look no further.

What you will need

2-3 lb (1 - 1.5 kg) boneless pork shoulder

2 red onions

4 cloves garlic

1 tsp ground black pepper

12 oz. (350 ml) dr. Pepper

1 tbsp mustard seeds

2 tbsp honey

1/4 cup (75 ml) bbq sauce

1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1/3 cup (75 g) brown sugar

3 tbsp (45 ml) soy sauce

1 tsp chili flakes

How to cook

1

Assemble ingredients

This recipe is simple, but it calls for a long list of ingredients. I recommend starting by gathering everything you will need in one place.

3

Crush garlic

Pulverize those cloves however you like. We plan to cook this to oblivion, so the garlic should disappear into the mass however you handle it.

4

Brown the pork

In a big skillet over medium heat, brown the pork shoulder on all sides. I used a big nonstick, so the pork itself gave up enough fat that oil wasn't necessary, but you may need a little.

5

Transfer pork to instant pot.

Move the pork shoulder over into the instant pot. But you still need that pan.

6

Sautée onions

Sautée the onions in the same pan over medium low. Might as well put that pork fat to good use.

7

Add onion to pot

Transfer the onion into the pot once it's tender.

8

1 tsp pepper

9

12 oz (350 ml) Dr Pepper

10

Crushed Garlic

11

1 tbsp Mustard seed

12

2 tbsp Honey

13

1/4 cup (75 ml) BBQ sauce

14

1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire

15

1/3 cup (75 g) Brown sugar

16

3 tbsp soy sauce

17

1 tsp chili flake

18

Cook

Close up the instant pot and cook. You can use the pressure cooker meat setting and it should be ready in less than an hour. Alternatively, slow cook for about 4 hours or until everything is super tender, falling apart easily.
