Instant Pot Mississippi Pork
So far I have made the classic Mississippi Pot Roast as well as Mississippi Chicken in the Instant Pot. They are both incredible! I decided to try it with a pork butt, also called pork shoulder. We had the best pulled pork from it!
The original Mississippi Pot Roast was created by Robin Chapman over 20 years ago, and its popularity has skyrocketed! People just love the flavors in this recipe.
You can make it in the slow cooker, in the oven, and in the pressure cooker (see my recipes below).
I Made Mississippi Pot Roast and it was pretty Salty
Yes, that is the biggest complaint about the original recipe. I have some tips to lessen the salt:
- Use Unsalted Butter.
- Try to find Low Sodium Ranch and/or Au Jus.
- Try my Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix recipe. It's Low Sodium.
- Add a few cut up potatoes to the pot and cook with the roast
- Add a little water to the drippings if too salty. Taste first and adjust.
What is Instant Pot Mississippi Pork Good on?

- Serve over Mashed Potatoes.
- Serve over Rice.
- Pull (shred) the pork and serve on buns.
- Cut into chunks and serve alongside veggies or a salad.

Take out the meat and place it on a dish. At this point you can shred it or leave it in chunks. Cover it and set aside.
Turn on the Sauté setting and when the juices in the pot start to simmer, whisk in the flour mixture. Stir until gravy thickens.
Add the meat back into the gravy.
Serve over mashed potatoes, over rice, or on a bun as a pulled pork sandwich.
