Ingredients for Pulled Pork in a Ninja Foodi Pressure Cooker
  • 1kg to 1.5kg boneless shoulder pork

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar

Pulled Pork Spice Mix

Rub the spice mixture all over the pork joint until it is all completely covered.

Heat the oil in the Ninja Foodi bowl using the SEAR/SAUTE function. Add the seasoned pork joint and quickly seal it on each side – don’t leave it for too long or the spices will burn on the bowl.

If anything does get stuck to the bowl, once you’ve removed the pork joint, pour some stock in and use a wooden or plastic spatula to scrape it off.

Sealed pork joint

Remove the pork joint from the Ninja Foodi and set it to one side. Make sure any stuck-on bits from the bowl of the Ninja Foodi have been completely scraped away.

Add the stock, BBQ sauce and vinegar to the Ninja Foodi bowl and stir to mix everything together before placing the pork joint back in.

Place the pressure cooker lid on top of the Ninja Foodi and switch the vent to SEAL. Select the pressure cooker function and cook on high for 50 minutes. By cooking it for slightly longer the pork will be really soft and shred much more easily.

At the end of the pressure cooker time leave carefully perform a quick release before removing the lid.

Remove the pork joint and place on a plate or in a bowl and shred it. You can do this in the Ninja Foodi bowl but I find it easier to do separately.

While you are shredding the pork you can keep the sauce warm by switching the Ninja Foodi to the SEAR/SAUTE function. This will also help to reduce it and thicken it up. If it is too thin you can also add in a little cornflour mixed with some water.

Return the shredded pork to the Ninja Foodi and stir it around. Either serve the pulled pork directly from the Ninja or transfer it to a serving dish.

What To Serve With Pulled Pork

Pulled pork tastes great in a brioche bun but it can also be served with rice, potato wedges and salad.

Ingredients

  • 1kg to 1.5kg boneless shoulder pork
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika

  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar

Instructions

    1. Mix together the paprika, sugar, pepper and salt. Rub it over the pork joint.
    2. Heat the oil in the pressure cooker using the SEAR/SAUTE function.
    3. Add the seasoned pork shoulder joint and brown it all over. Remove the pork joint from the Ninja bowl and set to one side.
    4. If anything has stuck to the bottom of the bowl, add a little stock and scrape it off with a wooden or plastic spatula. You can leave the scrapings in the bowl.
    5. Add the vinegar, stock and BBQ sauce and stir together.
    6. Return the pork joint to the bowl.
    7. Put the pressure cooker lid on and set the vent to SEAL.

    11. Stir the shredded pork until it is well mixed in. If the sauce is too thin, leave the lid off and let the sauce simmer for 5 to 10 minutes on SEAR/SAUTE. Alternatively, you can stir in some cornflour and water.

    13. Serve the pulled pork in brioche buns with some extra BBQ sauce if you wish.

Delicious! I didn't have brown sugar, but golden caster sugar and muscovado 50/50.
