  1. Instant Pot is a game changer. I’m surprised how shredded pork came out bursting with flavours and perfect. This is the only recipe I will be using for shredded pork anymore.

    1. Thanks for appreciating the recipe. I agree that the Instant Pot is the game changer. They have made cooking much easier!

    1. If you double the roast, you need to double all the remaining ingredients, and the cooking and pressure time will increase by 15 minutes per pound.
