Categories: pork, protein

Tags: meal prep, instant pot 

Course:  lunch, dinner

Prep Time: 5 minutes 

Total Time: 1 hr 15 minutes 

Total Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 1.5-2 lbs of boneless pork roast cut into 2-inch chunks and trimmed of excess fat (we find a pack pre-done this way at our local Walmart) 
  • Salt and pepper 
  • 1 Tbsp. avocado or olive oil (optional, used if searing before pressure cooking) 
  • Mojo Sauce: 
  • 1 cup beer or chicken stock 
  • ½ cup orange juice 
  • ¼ cup lime juice 
  • 1 ½  tsp garlic powder 
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • For servings: chopped fresh cilantro, diced onion, fresh salsa, lime wedges 

Instructions

  • If searing the meat, click the “saute” setting. Add the oil and the pork to the sear. Turn after 1 minute until browned on all sides. 
  • Press “cancel” to turn off the heat
  • Add Mojo Sauce ingredients to a small bowl and whisk to combine.  Pour over the pork. 
  • Close the lid and set the vent to “sealing”. 
  • Cook on high pressure for 45 minutes, followed by a natural release for about 15 minutes. 
  • Set the oven broiler to high. 
  • Transfer the pork with a slotted spoon to a large baking sheet (it should be falling apart/shredding as you scoop). Spoon a little juice over the top and broil for 4-5 minutes or until the edges are brown and crispy. You can add more of the juice and broil again or just toss with ½ of the remaining juice and serve. 
  • Sprinkle with optional toppings of cilantro, onion, and salsa, and serve over potatoes, in tortillas, salads, or nachos! Keeps in the fridge for 3 days or freezer for 3 months.
