I get asked so many times for great recipes in the Instant Pot using pork shoulder or butt. Well, I’ve gathered my 3 favorite ways to make pork shoulder in the Instant Pot and am sharing them with you here.

Pork shoulder also referred to as pork butt depending on where you live, is a wonderful cut of meat to cook in a pressure cooker. It’s a fatty cut of meat that needs to be “cooked to death”. The Instant Pot is perfect for this!

Keep in mind, pork shoulder is not the same thing as pork loin or pork tenderloin. These are much leaner cuts that need less cooking time than shoulder/butt. In my opinion for these next 3 recipes, pork shoulder is ideal. The flavor you end up with is amazing. So let’s get to it!
