Pressure Cooker Carnitas
To Make in an Electric Multicooker:
Trim fat from pork, then cut pork into 2-inch cubes and transfer to a large bowl.Advertisement
Stir together salt, oregano, cumin, pepper, chili powder, and paprika in a bowl. Toss pork with spice mixture and drizzle lightly with oil. Transfer pork mixture to an electric multicooker and add orange juice, onion, and garlic.
Cover, set on High Pressure, and bring up to pressure. Cook 1 hour, then let pressure release naturally, about 20 to 30 minutes. Shred pork in cooker using 2 forks.
To Make in a Slow Cooker:
After Step 2, cook, covered, on Low 8 to 10 hours or High 4 to 5 hours. (Leftovers keep up to 3 days, covered and chilled, and up to 1 month frozen.)
"I seared the meat in my Instant Pot prior to setting it on High for 45 minutes. Perfection! The meat was very tender and shredded easily." -- KGORA
