  • 4 lb pork roast boneless
  • 1 12 oz. Coca-Cola Zero Sugar
  • 2 cups Barbecue Sauce
  • 1 tbsp rib rub
  • Optional
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • For the Sandwich
  • Ciabatta Rolls, thinly sliced red onions and sweet pickles


  • Add the trivet on the bottom of the pressure cooker and place the roast on top.
  • Pour a can of Coca-Cola over the pork and top with bbq sauce.  Sprinkle with the spice rub
  • Place the lid on the pressure cooker and seal. Set timer for two hours.  Allow the steam to natural pressure release at the end of the cooking time.
  • After the pressure is released, remove the roast from the pressure cooker. Using two forks, shred the pork. Top with juices from the pressure cooker.
  • If you want to thicken up the sauce, after removing the roast set the pressure cooker to sauté to boil the juices. Then add one tablespoon of cornstarch into 1/2 cup COLD water. Whisk until smooth. Pour into the boiling sauce and cook until thick and bubbly - not long, only 3-5 minutes. Pour over the pulled pork
