This Instant Pot Carnitas Recipe Satisfies All of Your Summer Taco Needs
This dish requires very little introduction. Tacos? Always. Carnitas? Yes, please. Done in under an hour? Duh. Plus the Instant Pot version beats out slow-cooking it. The appealing beauty of pressure cooking via the Instant Pot is that you can decide you want carnitas at 5pm and eat by 6pm! For me, that’s 100 percent worth it. But alas, I need not convince you to buy an Instant Pot; you most likely own one already if you’re taking a gander at this 35-minute gem of a recipe.
Recipe Notes: There’s a lot of wiggle room in this recipe if you feel like experimenting a little. Add some dried Mexican oregano, ground cumin, and/or pickled jalapeño juice; this recipe’s resilient. Serve the carnitas with your favorite taco setup or over steamed white rice and black beans for a taco bowl. It’s so easy, you’ll be making this dish all summer long.
