  1. Mix dry rub spices in a small bowl. Rub roast with dry rub spices, making sure all of the meat is covered.

  6. When the meat is done, quick release pressure and remove roast. Add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to the sauce in the Instant Pot. Stir well. Place roast back into the instant pot and shred with two forks. Close instant pot and turn to warm.
