Before fall ends and winter officially sets in in Michigan, I wanted to share one of our favorite fall recipes.
However, since the lines here between our seasons tend to blur in the Midwest, I think you’ll find my Instant Pot Pulled Pork Sandwiches with homemade barbecue sauce is great for any of the colder months. And the barbecue sauce is perfect for everything summer time too.

Totally trying pork in the instapot now. Ty
Question for you: Your cooking time is 60-75 minutes….that is quite a difference and how do you decide what to cook it? Once it’s depressurized and more time is needed, it takes awhile to get it pressurized again. Thanks!
