  1. Put pork in the bottom of a pressure cooker. Pour root beer over the pork.
  2. Lock the lid onto the pressure cooker and place over a burner on high.
  3. Cook pork for 45 minutes. Release pressure from the pressure cooker according to manufacturer's directions before checking meat for tenderness; it should be tender enough to easily pull apart. If the pork is not yet done enough, again lock the lid on the cooker and continue cooking over high heat another 30 minutes.
  4. Release pressure from the cooker; drain liquid and transfer meat to a large bowl. Pull pork into strands using two forks. Pour barbeque sauce over the pork; stir to coat.


  • Editor's Note:
  • The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the root beer. The actual amount of the root beer consumed will vary.
  • Have a second bottle of barbeque sauce on hand to serve on the side, if desired.

Super easy and yummy!!! Even the picky ones ate it.

I'm biased because I don't really care for pulled pork. However, I made it for my son's wedding reception and it was a hit! I did season the pork as well.

I threw 7lbs of pork shoulder, 3 minced garlic, a chopped onion, and 18 fluid ounces Dr. Pepper into the pressure cooker for a Father's Day potluck. Easy peasy. Self-served on slider rolls wi...

Came out great! I cooked the pork for 45 minutes, and it shredded very easily. I doubled the amount of BBQ sauce to 2 bottles. My family loved it!
