  • 4 lb boneless pork loin or boneless pork shoulder/butt
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1-2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced
  • 12 oz Dr Pepper soda
  • your favorite bbq sauce


  • Slice pork into 4 pieces and season with salt and pepper.  Place pork in instant pot insert and top with minced chipotle peppers.  Pour Dr Pepper around the pork.
  • Place lid on Instant Pot and seal.  Press manual and set for 45 minutes.  Instant Pot will start counting down once it comes up to pressure, which is usually 15 minutes or so.
  • Once cooked, let naturally release for 15 minutes, then quick release to get rid of any remaining pressure.
  • Carefully remove pork to a large mixing bowl (it will be so tender it may start to fall apart during the transfer).  Shred using two forks and add bbq sauce to your tastes.



Prep time includes time for the Instant Pot to come up to pressure and release the pressure.
