  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika

  • 1 ½ teaspoons firmly packed light brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 pounds boneless pork loin roast, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 ½ cups barbeque sauce

  • 1 cup water

  • 2 (12 count) packages Hawaiian bread rolls (such as King's®)


  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®) 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.
