Are you a cranberry sauce lover or hater? We never had it with our turkey and I didn’t even try it for the first time until I was 22 years old! Personally, I think it tastes great. However, I don’t really get why we only eat it on Thanksgiving. I would happily eat that stuff on ice cream or even on a peanut butter sandwich. Totally delicious.

Well, hold up. Let me clarify that. I’m talking about the whole berry cranberry sauce ONLY. That weird shaped like a can stuff sorta scares me.

If you’re living in my house that means you piled it high on buns but I have a feeling this would be amazing scooped over rice or buttered egg noodles.  I mean, how you can go wrong with meat and buttered noodles?

Quick answer – you can’t.

I also made sure to make this recipe CRAZY EASY for you all by teaming up with the Crock-Pot brand and using their 6-Quart Crock-Pot Express Crock Multi-Cooker. You know I LOVE this machine (did you see my pressure cooker hard boiled eggs from last week?) so it was a no-brainer to use it for a big hunk of meat.

Usually, when I make pulled pork I use my slow cooker and it takes almost all day. Well, not in the Express Crock. It only took 40 minutes! Yes, you read that right. JUST 40 MINUTES!

That means if you decided you want pulled pork last minute you can totally pull it off even on a weekday. This is all because the Express Crock cooks traditional meals 70% faster.

I’m all about fast food. Well, not fast food fast food. Food that cooks fast. You know what I mean.

I know I told you this in my pressure cooker hard boiled eggs post BUT this Express Crock is a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, and a steamer all combined into one. Oh, and you can sauté and brown in the machine before you start cooking it. I love that whole do it all in one machine cooking.

For this pressure cooker cranberry sauce pulled pork recipe, I used 3-½ pounds cubed pork butt that fit perfect in the 6-quart model. But if you’re looking to make more, or a lot less, you’re in luck because they also make a 4-quart and an 8-quart model!

Pressure Cooker Cranberry Sauce Pulled Pork

This pressure cooker cranberry sauce pulled pork is the perfect way to use up any leftover holiday cranberry sauce. It’s the perfect combination of spicy ginger beer, sweet cranberry sauce, tart fresh cranberries, fresh herbs, and fresh pork. It’s great on a sandwich or served over rice.

Yield: 4-6 servings

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 60 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3-1/2 pound cubed pork butt
  • 1 cup whole cranberry sauce
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup ginger beer
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh sage
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar bbq sauce, store-bought

Directions:

In the container of your 6-Quart Express Crock add your cubed pork, cranberry sauce, cranberries, ginger beer, rosemary, sage, kosher salt, and black pepper. Stir to combine.

Add the lid, lock it and turn the vent to closed so the cooker can build pressure.

Press the meat button and press start. The time will automatically be set so you do not need to adjust the time or level of pressure.

It will take about 10 minutes for the Express Crock to build pressure and then the time will start to count down. When the time is up the machine will beep.

Using a hand towel carefully open the vent on the top to release the pressure. It will be loud and there will be hot steam coming out of the vent so please stand back and don’t put your hand anywhere near the hot steam.

When the pressure is released the lid will unlock and you can open the lid.

Shred the meat in the pot with 2 forks. If the mixture is very wet you can drain off some of the liquid in the container. I drained off some of the liquid because I wanted my pulled pork to be a little thicker. It all depends on how you’re serving your pulled pork. If you’re mixing it with noodles or rice leave a bit more liquid if you’re serving it on buns drain more off.

Stir in the bbq sauce and taste. If you want more bbq sauce add more.

Serve warm on buns, over rice or over noodles.
