    good flavor but i think it needs more liquid as I kept getting the Burn Food notice from my instant pot.

    Very excellent, used country style ribs, will probably sub home made chicken stock instead of the water next time

    The flavor of this recipe is excellent. I left out the brown sugar. My only issue is that some meat was perfect and fell apart, but some was still tough and difficult to tear. I used a smaller piece of meat so maybe I need to adjust the cooking time to be shorter. Will definitely try again though.

    Followed the recipe as presented. Didn't have the apple cider vinegar though, and substituted Malt Vinegar. Left the dry-rubbed pork in the fridge for a few hours before sauteing and instantpot-ting... Best pulled pork I think I've ever been able to make. Very flavorful. Will definitely make this again!

    I did it without the brown sugar and it came out very well cooked and tasty. Thank you for the recipe.
