Pulled Pork Pressure Cooker

If you want to feed a crowd but you don't have time for cooking, pulled pork pressure cooker is the solution. You can use pork loin or pork shoulder, 1.5 to 2 kilos (3 to 4 pounds) and it will not break the bank.

Pulled Pork Pressure Cooker in a large bowl

I make this when I have a load of teenagers coming for the night or when I have a busy weekend and I don't want to spend time worrying about lunch and dinner.

Jump to Recipe

I prepare a large bowl of pulled pork, coleslaw, and wraps.

When the boys are hungry they just help themselves to a nice wrap and I don't have to be involved.

This is not a typical French or Italian recipe, it is just a timesaver and my boys love it.

It is an easy, well-balanced family dinner that can be used for lunch boxes, picnics or lazy Sunday.

If you don't have a pressure cooker you will have to cook the pork for 5 hours, but if you are interested to learn more about my pressure cooker and how I use it, you can find my review here:
