Maple Bacon Balsamic Pulled Pork

Prep Time 00:10 Cook Time 01:40 Serves 6 to 8

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds bone-in pork shoulder roast
  • 2 teaspoons fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Red Boat fish sauce
  • 1/2 yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup broth 

Directions

  1. Place pork shoulder in Instant Pot insert. In a small bowl, mix sea salt, cinnamon and garlic together. Rub on all sides of the pork shoulder.
  2. Lay bacon on top of the pork. Sprinkle balsamic and fish sauce over the bacon, then lay onion slices on top. Carefully pour in broth around the roast.
  3. Pressure cook on manual setting, ensuring the lid is sealed, for 1 hour 40 minutes (100 minutes).
  4. Release pressure and use a set of large tongs to transfer the pork roast (bacon and onions included) onto a rimmed cutting board, baking sheet, or a large and deep glass storage container. Use two forks to shred the meat, bacon, and onion well.
  5. In a measuring cup, whisk ½ cup of the cooking liquid from the insert with the maple syrup. Pour over the pulled pork and toss to coat. Toss again just before serving.
