  1. Put pork in the bottom of a pressure cooker. Pour root beer over the pork.
  2. Lock the lid onto the pressure cooker and place over a burner on high.
  3. Cook pork for 45 minutes. Release pressure from the pressure cooker according to manufacturer's directions before checking meat for tenderness; it should be tender enough to easily pull apart. If the pork is not yet done enough, again lock the lid on the cooker and continue cooking over high heat another 30 minutes.
  4. Release pressure from the cooker; drain liquid and transfer meat to a large bowl. Pull pork into strands using two forks. Pour barbeque sauce over the pork; stir to coat.


  • Editor's Note:
  • The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the root beer. The actual amount of the root beer consumed will vary.
  • Have a second bottle of barbeque sauce on hand to serve on the side, if desired.

I made this recipe last night for my mother and we both loved it. So simple to make. The few changes I made were I threw in a large chopped onion and three diced garlic cloves. Then added the ba...

This was very good! I used an electric pressure cooker on high pressure for 55 minutes. It might have been done in less, but I wanted to make sure it was done before releasing pressure. I mix...

This was my first experiment with a pressure cooker, and it turned out great! Cooked our 5.5 lbs of pork shoulder with Dr Pepper on high pressure for 50 minutes. For sauce, I added a bottle of S...

Came out great! I cooked the pork for 1 hour, and it shredded very easily. I doubled the amount of BBQ sauce to 2 bottles. My family loved it!

Doesn't get much easier than this. Quick and easy for those lazy days. I served on toasted sourdough bread.
