Pulled Pork Chili (Instant Pot Recipe)

Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe

While most ingredients can be bought in grocery stores, for your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients (and equipment) needed for this recipe have been listed below and linked to Amazon or other stores if available online.

It does not include staple ingredients such as oil, salt, sugar, etc., as you’re likely to have those in your kitchen. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. Please note, you can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).

How to Make Pulled Pork Chili

Instant Pot Pulled Pork Chili

Yield: 4-6
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 55 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

With just 15 minutes of hands-on prep, this Instant Pot Pulled Pork Chili is an absolute taste sensation.

Ingredients

  • 2½ -3 lbs (1.1-1.3kg) boneless pork loin roast
  • Sea salt & black pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ medium red onion, diced (approximately 1 cup)
  • 1 Tbsp dark cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 cup strong black coffee
  • 1 (28-oz/2 x 400g) can diced tomatoes with green chilis, undrained
  • 2 (15-oz/400g) cans red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (15-oz/400g) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup strained tomatoes (passata)

To Serve

  • Mexican cheese blend, finely shredded
  • Red onion, diced

Instructions

  1. Remove pork roast from the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, but not more than 2 hours, before cooking. Remove excess fat and cut it into four equal-sized pieces. Season with salt and black pepper, as desired, and set aside.
  2. Select the “Sauté” function on the Instant Pot and add olive oil. Once hot, add the red onion, cocoa powder, chili powder, ground cumin, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and dried oregano. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine.
  3. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally until the onion softens and the spices become very fragrant. Deglaze the pot by adding the coffee and gently scraping the bottom with a plastic spatula to loosen any brown bits. Turn the unit off by pressing the “Keep Warm/Cancel” button.
  4. Add the diced tomatoes with chilis, kidney beans, cannellini beans, strained tomatoes, and seasoned pork loin to the Instant Pot. Stir to combine and add the lid. Lock into place and position the vent toward “Sealing.” Press the “Manual” button and adjust until it reads “High Pressure,” if necessary. Set cook time to 55 minutes.
  5. Once cook time is complete, allow the pressure to release naturally for 15 minutes, then do a quick release for any remaining pressure. Once the pin drops, carefully remove the lid and shred the pork with two forks. Stir to combine and let sit for 5-10 minutes for the flavors to blend. Serve warm topped with some shredded Mexican cheese blend and diced onion. Enjoy!
    Tip: If desired, combine one or two tablespoons of cornstarch with an equal amount of the hot liquid from the Instant Pot and stir into the chili to thicken.
