  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • low calorie cooking spray

BBQ Sauce

  • ½ onion
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • ½ lemon juice of
  • 1 tbsp Schwartz Perfect Shake Classic BBQ Seasoning

Pulled Pork

  1. Cut the pork shoulder in half and trim all excess fat - there will be quite a bit. It's fine if you cut the pork up to get at the fat

  2. Mix the salt and pepper with the Schwartz Perfect Shake Classic BBQ Seasoning and rub it all over the pork. Make sure to massage. Place the pork in the fridge for a few hours or use immediately

  3. Place the Instant Pot into Sauté mode and spray with low calorie cooking spray. Brown the pork on all sides, don't worry if the bottom of the pot browns

  4. Remove the pork from the pot and deglaze with a bit of the stock. Make sure all browned bit are off the bottom

  5. Tip in the onions and cook until they soften. Add the pork back to the pot and pour in the stock and Worcestershire sauce

  6. Lock the lid, turn the valve to sealing and place the Instant Pot into Manual mode. Increase the time to 90. The pot will come to pressure and when it's done so it'll start to count down
  7. Once finished, allow the pot to naturally release it's pressure for 15 minutes
  8. Place the pork and onions on a plate and run the remaining juices through a fat separator to get rid of the fat. Return the juices to the pot, and put the pot into Sauté mode

  9. Once the juices have reduced by half add in your BBQ sauce & simmer stirring frequently for another 5 minutes. Whilst this bubbles away pull your pork & onions with a couple of forks. It will just melt, resist the temptation to pick!
  10. Add the pork into the sauce and stir well. Place the pot into 'Keep Warm' if you want to go back for seconds. You probably will!!

BBQ Sauce

  1. Spray a frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and cook the onions and garlic until the onions are soft

  2. Add the tomato puree and tinned tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes on high, stirring frequently

  3. Add in the rest of the ingredients, lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes, the sauce should thicken nicely

  4. Place into a sterilised jar, and store in the fridge until ready to use. Use within a week.
