Carnitas - Pressure Cooker
Pork butt is pressure-cooked to tender shreds with onion, garlic, orange, and a blend of spices in this recipe, done in less than 2 hours.
Cubes of pork shoulder meat are browned, then cooked in a pressure cooker with poblano, jalapeno, and serrano peppers, onions, and spices to make tender seasoned meat that's perfect for tacos.
These chicken carnitas are easily cooked in an Instant Pot® for a low-effort meal-prep dish that can be enjoyed throughout the week!
Pork simmered in broth and seasonings makes a great filling for tamales and tacos in this slow cooker pork carnitas recipe.
While traditional al pastor meat is cooked on a spit, this flavorful variation is made using your Instant Pot® or multi-cooker pressure cooker after marinating.
They tasted ok, but like someone else mentioned in a review, the cooking time seems to be too long. At 60 minutes in the pressure cooker, the vegetables in the recipe basically turned into liquid and the meat was overcooked and had the texture of stew meat that had been boiled for a long time. Overall, it wasn't bad, but I guess I was expecting something different based on the photo. I probably wouldn't make the same recipe again.
This was soo delicious. Everyone in the family loved it, kids included. The changes I made: added 1 tsp coriander, 1.5 cups OJ, and didn't have an onion so added the ends of 4 green onions that I had, and threw in 2 Anaheim peppers whole that I had. I have an instant pot and set it on high pressure for 60 minutes, with 15 minutes of natural release. Pair it with a homemade salsa, cilantro, crema, rice and beans and tortillas. Soo good that I am making it again later this week for company. Thank you for this super easy and delicious dinner that I didn't have to slave away in the kitchen for. Absolutely love it!
