Instructions
  1. Cut the pork shoulder into 2" cubes and place in a large bowl. Mix the dried ingredients (cumin - pepper) together and sprinkle on the pork
  2. Mix together and set aside
  3. Slice the onion
  4. Peel and smash the garlic
  5. Mix the ketchup, maple syrup, wortcestechire sauce and cider vinegar together in a small cup
  6. Grab your pressure cooker - I've used a stove top version for years but upgraded to this fabulous Instant Pot this summer
  7. Add the oil to the bottom of the pressure cooker - If using an Instant Pot, turn to sauté. If using a stovetop cooker, place over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until soft - about 5 minutes
  8. Add the garlic and cook for an additional 30 seconds
  9. Add the pork and stir to combine
  10. Pour the ketchup mixture over the pork
  11. Mix and be sure the wet ingredients have covered the pork cubes
  12. Cover the cooker. If using an Instant Pot - push the Manual button and set for 45 minutes. Also set the top to sealed (not vented). Let her rip! If using a stovetop - place over medium heat until it is at high pressure. Turn down and maintain high pressure for 45 minutes
  13. Once the 45 minutes are up, turn off the Instant Pot or heat under the stovetop cooker and let sit until the pressure releases. This will take about 15 minutes
  14. Remove the lid and smell the goodness!
  15. Using a slotted spoon, remove the pork from the pressure cooker and place in a large bowl
  16. Using 2 forks, shred the pork
  17. Using a spoon, skim the fat off the juices from the pork
  18. Place the juices from the pork into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil until reduced by 1/3 - about 5 minutes
  19. Strain the juices through a strainer or cheesecloth. Taste the broth and adjust the seasonings
  20. Ladle the juices onto the pork until you've reached a moisture level you prefer
  21. Serve the pork as a lettuce wrap or sandwich with your favorite side dishes.
