  • 5-7 # boneless or bone-in pork butt roast
  • 1 C Chicken Broth
  • 1/4 C light brown sugar
  • Magic Rub recipe below
  • 1 C orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 C BBQ sauce
  • Magic Rub Recipe
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground mustard
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


  • Trim fat from pork roast and cut into 4 same size chunks.
  • Season pork roast chunks well with Magic Rub.
  • Add 2 tbs olive oil to Instant Pot and set to saute. Once it indicates hot, add 2 pieces of the pork. Sear on each side for about 2 minutes each. Remove pork and set aside on a plate. Repeat with remaining pork pieces.
  • Once the pork is seared and removed from the pot, press cancel and add, chicken broth, orange juice, and brown sugar to the pot. Use a wooden spoon and deglaze the bottom of the pot. Make sure to scrape up all the bits. Then add Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke.
  • Place pork chunks directly into the liquid in the pot, spacing out as best possible. Secure lid and make sure the vent is set to sealing. Pressure cook/manual on high pressure for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Then let the pressure release naturally until pin drops.
  • Remove pork and place in a large bowl and shred with 2 forks. Hold reserve juices for later.
  • Place shredded pork back in the pot add your favorite BBQ sauce, some reserved juice, and cook for 20 more minutes.
  • Serve it up! We love coleslaw or Homemade French Fries with ours.
