Instant Pot BBQ Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

This recipe is simple and easy and will leave you lots of leftovers for the week! If you don’t have an Instant Pot, no worries, you can use your crockpot instead, just make sure to plan ahead for that. This cooks in 90 minutes in the Instant Pot versus 8 hours in the crock pot. All of that being said, if you don’t have an Instant Pot, you need one!

For the Pulled Pork:

Ingredients:

-Boneless Pork Shoulder 

– 1 Cup Organic Sweet and Spicy BBQ Sauce (or any bbq sauce that works for you)
