Pressure Cooker BBQ Pork Sandwiches

Prep Time:

10 mins.

Cook Time:

55 mins.


6 to 8 sandwiches

Shredded pork seasoned with Carroll Shelby’s famous White Chicken Chili Kit spice mix can be used for sandwiches, tacos, burritos, nachos and more. Make a big batch, leaving plenty of time for the roast to absorb the spice rub flavors, and freeze in portions perfect for a quick meal.



  • 1 Carroll Shelby’s® White Chicken Chili Kit
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 6 to 8 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ancho chili powder
  • 1 (3 1/2-pound) pork butt, bone-in
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup water (or chicken broth)



  1. Make Spice Rub: Combine all Chili Kit Spice Packets (do not use the Masa Packet) in a bowl with brown sugar, garlic, salt, smoked paprika and chili powder and mix well.
  2. Prepare Pork: Coat pork butt with spice rub, cover and let stand in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours and up to overnight. When ready to cook, remove from refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before cooking.
  3. Turn an electric pressure cooker to the sauté setting on high, then set the timer to 10 minutes. Add vegetable oil; when hot, add meat, fatty side down, and brown on all sides.
  4. Add water to pot. Lock the lid into place and make sure the valve is sealed. Set to cook on high pressure for 45 minutes. When done, let the pressure release naturally.
  5. Transfer pork to a rimmed baking sheet. Using 2 forks, shred meat into bite-size pieces and discard bone and any large chunks of fat. Return pork to pot with the juices and let stand for an hour so it can absorb some of the juices.
  6. Assemble Sandwiches: Spread mayonnaise on the bottom bun halves. Load each bottom bun half with shredded pork, top it with slaw, place top bun halves on and serve.
