Pulled Pork recipe

It's your choice to use Dr Pepper or root beer as the liquid for this Dr Pepper or Root Beer Pulled Pork. We prefer root beer, but both are very good.

  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • 1 onion, diced

  1. Season pork loin with Tony's, garlic powder and onion powder. Place loin in Instant Pot. Pour remaining ingredients over the top.
  2. Cook for 50 minutes, then natural release for 10 minutes.
  3. Pour out the juice and shred the pork to make sandwiches.
