Ninja Foodi Pulled Pork is another great way to enjoy barbecue right in the Ninja Foodi!
If you are ready to have a great barbecue then this Ninja Foodi Pulled Pork is a perfect choice. This can be made in the slow cooker too; however, since I’ve fallen in love with the Ninja Foodi, I’ve been using it for a variety of meals.
Remember that almost all of these Ninja Foodi Recipes can be made as an Instant Pot Recipe too, they are typically going to be the exact same method with either appliance.
Tips for Making Ninja Foodi Pulled Pork:
Using the pot of the Ninja Foodi, coat it well with olive oil using a brush to sear the meat prior to pressure cooking it. This will give it a nice brown coating instead of that ugly gray coating that meat sometimes gets when steamed or pressure cooked.
This recipe will also use a dry rub that you can make with pantry style ingredients and then you can use this Ninja Foodi Pulled Pork to stuff in baked potatoes or as sandwiches, it’s even great in wraps or salad too.
We love to have some barbecue sauce on hand as well for this recipe.

What cut of pork should you use for pulled pork?
It’s best to use the pork shoulder or pork butt, both come from the front of the pig. We prefer the pork butt, which is more marbled than a pork shoulder.
Pork Butt gives that fall apart, easy to shred result. Pork Shoulder will normally have the skin on, which is also a great choice for this recipe too.
Find more information on the difference between the two cuts here.
Now let’s enjoy this great Ninja Foodi Pulled Pork.
