Recipe Notes

This pulled pork works well stuffed into tacos or pitas, served over rice or mashed potatoes, or piled on buns.

Cutting the pork in several large pieces allows the meat to cook quickly and evenly in the pressure cooker.

When releasing pressure naturally, it’s always a good idea to set the pressure valve to VENTING after the float valve drops down, just to be sure all of the pressure has been released.
