    Recipe: Instant Pot Cranberry Pulled Pork

    Whether you're looking to bring a new dish to the holiday table or perk up your next tailgate, this tangy, lightened-up cranberry pulled pork is a crowd-pleaser. To make this recipe as easy as possible while also sticking to lean cuts of pork, we use straight-from-the-package boneless pork loin cut into 1 1/2 inch thick chops. Alternatively, you can buy a whole pork loin and cut it into chunks yourself. Note that barbecue sauces are subjective. Some people like 'em sweet, and some like 'em tangy. If you find the sauce is too sour, add additional monk fruit sweetener. If monk fruit isn't your thing, you can add a few drops of liquid stevia, a few tablespoons of maple syrup, or even brown ....
