The best thing about these BBQ pulled pork burgers is that we’re using a pressure cooker, so the pork shoulder is fall-apart tender in just over an hour with very minimal prep! You get a hearty meal that everyone will love and you've got 45 minutes to get the important things done while dinner cooks!
If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can make this pulled pork burger recipe in a slow cooker too! Just sear the pork on the stove first, then move it to the slow cooker. Cover it in the BBQ sauce mixture and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours, or on high for 4 hours.
If your pork shoulder is too big to get a good sear in the Instant Pot, cut it into chunks and sear it in batches. Searing the pork introduces a lot of those complex flavors that good BBQ is known for, so don’t skip it!
