Use a homemade rub to make an absolutely delicious Mexican Pulled Pork recipe in your Instant Pot or pressure cooker. Use the meat for tacos, burritos, casseroles, or whatever other creative uses you can think up!

Add the cut-up pork shoulder and massage the spice rub into it. Allow to marinate for 30 minutes
Place the pork pieces into the inner liner of your Instant Pot.
Add the ¼ cup of water.
