Cut the pork into 3-4 even pieces, then season it with salt and pepper and place in the Instant Pot.

Pour the 16 ounces of BBQ sauce over top of the pork. Set the Instant Pot to cook on high pressure for 45 minutes. When the time is up, quick release the Instant Pot.

Preheat your oven to 375°F.

Use forks to shred the pork, then toss it back in the juices that it cooked in.

Slice Hawaiian rolls in half so that there is a set of 6 connected tops and a set of 6 connected bottoms.

Place the bottoms of the rolls face-up on a parchment paper-lined sheet pan and use tongs to transfer the meat to the bread, allowing the juices to drip off of the pork before layering.

Drizzle 8 ounces of BBQ sauce over the pork, then top each set of sandwiches with the shredded Monterey jack cheese.

Place the tops of the rolls on the sandwiches and use a basting brush to brush the melted butter all over each set of sandwiches (about 1 tablespoon per set of sandwiches). Sprinkle the tops with the flaky salt.

Cover the sheet pan with foil, pressing down lightly around the sandwiches. Bake at 375°F for 15 minutes.

Remove the foil from the sandwiches and put the sheet pan back in the oven to let the sandwiches brown for 5 minutes. Once finished, pull apart, and enjoy!
