Toast up a gluten free  hamburger bun to serve as the base for consuming this gastronomic delight and enjoy the blends of sauces and seasonings!

To begin making Instant Pot Pulled Pork I took a pork shoulder blade roast, removed the bone and cut it into 4 chunks.

Then I poured some chicken broth, root beer and gluten free bbq sauce of choice (I used bold) into the Instant Pot.

I measured in some garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, chili powder, salt and some pepper.

I whisked all of these ingredients together in the Instant Pot.

Next  I placed the 4 chunks of pork shoulder blade roast into the Instant Pot.

Then I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook High for 40 minutes.

While the pork roast was cooking I prepared the BBQ sauce for the Pulled Pork.

I mixed together some more bbq sauce of choice, pure maple syrup and some Sweet Chili Thai Sauce.  

Once the Instant Pot was done cooking, I allowed it to do a Natural Release for 25 minutes before turning the steam release handle to the venting position to release the remaining pressure.

Leave the Keep Warm setting on.

Using tongs, I carefully transferred the chunks of pork shoulder roast to a cutting board.

Then I used two forks to shred the pork roast chunks.

I reserved one cup of the liquid that the pork chunks had cooked in and discarded the remaining liquid.

Next I transferred all the shredded pork to the Instant Pot.

Then I poured in the cup of reserved liquid that the pork shoulder blade roast had cooked in.

Then I added the sauce I had prepared earlier and set aside.

I used the tongs to mix everything together.

While the shredded pork was keeping warm in the Pot I toasted some gluten free hamburger buns under the broiler.

Scoop a healthy serving of Instant Pot Pulled Pork on top of the bottom half of the bun if you choose to eat it like a bunwich.

Some members of my family choose to put a bit on both halves of the bun and use a knife and fork to eat it like an open faced sandwich.

Eat your Instant Pot Pulled Pork on a bun with a side serving of coleslaw to add another level of texture and taste to this scrumptious meal.

Or some family members here prefer to eat their pulled pork outside the bun and enjoy all its flavours as the main entree and their bun on the side.

Add all those flavours and textures together in one bite by putting your coleslaw right in the bun.

However you choose to eat Instant Pot Pulled Pork it is sure to be a hit and become a staple for your dinner rotation!
