  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 tsp of paprika
  • ½ tsp of garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp of cayenne pepper
  • 1½ cups of chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp of liquid smoke
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce.


  1. Prep the Pork Roast:

    • Trim any excess fat from the roast.
    • Cut the roast into four equal-sized chunks.
  2. Prepare the Dry Rub:

    • In a large bowl, combine all your dry ingredients.
    • Whisk them together thoroughly.
    • Add the pork chunks to the bowl.
    • Toss and rub the mixture onto the pork until well-coated.
  3. Sear the Pork:

    • Turn on your Instant Pot to the sauté setting.
    • Wait until it displays ‘Hot’.
    • Add two tablespoons of olive oil.
    • Place two pork chunks in the pot.
    • Sear each side for about two minutes.
    • Remove the seared pork and set it aside on a plate.
    • Repeat with the remaining pork chunks.
  4. Deglaze the Pot:

    • After removing the pork, press ‘Cancel’ to stop sautéing.
    • Pour 1½ cups of beef broth into the pot.
    • Use a wooden spoon to scrape and deglaze the bottom of the pot, freeing any stuck bits.
  5. Add Remaining Ingredients:

    • Add the remaining broth, Worcestershire sauce, and liquid smoke to the pot.
  6. Cook the Pork:

    • Place the pork chunks back into the liquid in the pot, spaced evenly.
    • Secure the Instant Pot lid and ensure the vent is sealed.
    • Set to cook on high pressure (manual setting) for 50 minutes.
    • After cooking, allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes or until the pin drops.
  7. Shred and Serve:

    • Transfer the cooked pork to a large bowl.
    • Use two forks to shred the meat.
    • Mix in your favorite BBQ sauce to taste, or use the juices left in the Instant Pot for added flavor.
