  1. Whisk smoked paprika, brown sugar, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper together in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add pork and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot(R)) and select Saute function. Heat oil and cook pork in batches until browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Pour in barbeque sauce and water. Close and lock the lid; select Manual function and set timer for 60 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
  3. Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, 10 to 40 minutes. Unlock and remove lid; transfer pork to a separate plate. Reselect Saute function and simmer sauce until thickened, about 10 minutes. Shred pork with 2 two forks; mix with sauce.
  4. Slice bread rolls in half and fill with pulled pork; cover with tops.

Made the recipe as stated except cooked the meat under high pressure for 45 minutes instead of 60. The meat was very tender. This recipe makes too much liquid.

The ingredients do not list garlic powder, but the directions do. I added about a teaspoon. The flavor is good and my husband likes it, but it doesn't taste like real pulled pork made in a smok...
