One of the cool, less well known features of the Instant Pot is that it can be used to heat up leftovers, which is great for people who prefer not to microwave food. The results from the Instant Pot are better, too! The food retains its moisture and heats evenly. There are several options for reheating pulled pork, but these two are my preferred.
