Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    This pulled pork works well stuffed into tacos or pitas, served over rice or mashed potatoes, or piled on buns.
  • tip 2
    Cutting the pork in several large pieces allows the meat to cook quickly and evenly in the pressure cooker.
  • tip 3
    This pulled pork is super-versatile! Serve it on its own piled on buns or use it to add big flavor to your favorite tacos and mashed potatoes.
  • tip 4
    Cutting your pork shoulder into several pieces, rather than placing in the multicooker whole, ensures the meat cooks evenly and quickly.
  • tip 5
    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.
