  • 9 pounds bone-in pork shoulder blade roast (/butt or 5-6 lb boneless)
  • 5 teaspoons sea salt (/butt or 5-6 lb boneless)
  • 1 onions (large
  • 3/4 cup pineapple juice (/butt or 5-6 lb boneless)
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne


  • Cut the pork into 4-5 inch chunks.
  • If using bone-in, cut around the bone.
  • If you'd like, trim the fat around the meat.
  • Add the pork (and the bone) to the Instant Pot.
  • Sprinkle the pork with 3 tsp of sea salt, making sure to cover all sides.
  • Add the onion to the pork.
  • Pour in pineapple juice, apple cider vinegar, and dijon mustard over the pork and onions.
  • Close the lid and set the Instant Pot to Manual on HIGH for 60 minutes.
  • Once the Instant Pot beeps to a finish, wait 10 minutes for the pressure to naturally release, then release the rest of the pressure manually.
  • Open the lid and transfer the pork and onions to a large bowl, along with 1 cup of the liquid.
  • Discard the rest of the liquid.
  • Remove the fat if you prefer, then use 2 forks to shred the pork into bite-sized pieces.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 tsp sea salt and the rest of the spices together.
  • Sprinkle the spices over the pork and onions and toss together.
  • Serve warm, or freeze into individual portions.
