Perhaps you visit this website for my recipes. Or maybe you also like the interesting stories I write when I post a new recipe. I get it though; I bet most of you visit because you’re in need of a free recipe so, in turn, you need to scroll past a story about the recipe that I am about to share with you. ( and deal with a few ads) That’s okay with me. I sometimes do that when I visit recipe websites too.
This summer I feel like I don’t have many exciting stories anyway. In fact, I am telling the same story everytime I post.
I have three boys.
I am trying to keep them entertained while trying to keep my cool and without giving them too much screen time and still trying to avoid the “summer slide.”
I am so busy that I am the food blogger who doesn’t actually have time to cook long, complicated meals.
Making pulled meat in my Instant Pot and keeping it in the fridge is the only thing stopping me from making scrambled eggs every night.
There. Summer of 2018 in a nutshell. Now watch me copy and paste those statements to all the food posts that go up this summer.
Seriously though, my kiddos love bbq pulled chicken or bbq pulled pork. We make sandwiches, lettuce wraps, tacos, quesadillas, salads, or anything else you can imagine with it. I thought it would be fun to make a homemade balsamic bbq sauce in my Instant pot, then make pulled chicken. Not only was this easy, but it was awesome.
I always get this balsamic vinegar. I get large containers of it because I use a lot of it.
Here is a video tutorial to show you how easy this is.
Balsamic Barbecue Sauce Pulled Chicken
Balsamic Vinegar Barbecue Sauce
- 1 small caramelized onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup ketchup
- 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1 dash salt
- 1 dash pepper
- 2 pounds chicken
- 1 cup water
Set your Instant Pot to saute, and make barbecue sauce.
Add all of the barbecue sauce ingredients to your Instant Pot in no particular order and whisk together over the heat.
Turn off the saute setting. Add chicken and water
Place lid on the Instant Pot and cook on high pressure for 25 minutes
Vent. Remove lid and shred chicken.
This was a great way to switch up bbq pulled chicken. I am going to try making my bbq sauce again!
