I've had my eye on the Instant Pot for a while now after hearing how amazing it was from friends and also how much time it would help save doing meal prep. Since Amazon decided to flash it in my face on Amazon Prime Day I finally pulled the trigger and got it. For those who do not have a pressure cooker, majority of those recipes can still be done in the crock pot for 6-8 hours and without the added liquid (so for this pork recipe you would not add the 1/2 cup of water). Anyways, since I was out of town all weekend and my Instant Pot was delivered in time, I obviously had no other option except to put it to use right away. This pulled pork recipe was a winner since it includes very few and simple ingredients and I already had a bottle of Steve's PaleoChef Peach BBQ at home. Another paleo BBQ sauce option I often use is Tessemae's BBQ sauce, which is equally as delicious and also sold at Whole Foods. Anyways, besides the slow down from just being a first time user of the Instant Pot, this meal was complete in under an hour and a half. I baked 5 large sweet potatoes in the oven at 425 degrees for 40 minutes, flipped them over, and baked for an additional 40 minutes. I also threw the asparagus on the grill while I was in the middle of grilling everything for my pineapple chicken meal this week. With being out of town all weekend and starting meal prep late on Sunday, choosing meal prep recipes that are quick and simple are a must, but so is choosing recipes that can be made at the same time. It really helped reduce the stress of coming home late and having to get meal prep done by having one meal completely made on the grill while the other one was in the Instant Pot and in the oven. Just a meal prep tip I wanted to throw out there. Anyways, if you like BBQ then you will enjoy this pulled pork. I thought it was delicious and absolutely loved this classical meat, baked sweet potato, and veggie meal prep!
