If you are just starting out using a Instant Pot, it can be a little scary and intimidating. But, it doesn’t have to be! If you haven’t done a water test yet, I’d suggest doing that. Also, be sure to read our article on How to Use an Instant Pot before you get started.
I too was a little intimated and quite scared of this device. But, after a few recipes and the Hubby standing by my side (literally, I was that scared) I’ve come to actually prefer the Instant Pot over my beloved Crock-Pot. It cooks everything WAY faster and I love the fact that I can brown meat in the Instant Pot where I can’t do that with the Crock-Pot.
Alright let’s get you making these pulled pork sliders!
What ingredients do I need to make pulled pork sliders?
- pork butt or shoulder
- peppers in adobo sauce
- salt and pepper
- dr. pepper
How do you make spicy pulled pork sliders in the instant pot?
Add in adobo peppers.
TIP: If you don’t want a lot of heat, only use 2-3 peppers for a 2-4 pound pork butt/shoulder. If you enjoy spice, add the whole can and cool it down with a side of cole slaw!
