These gluten free instant pot or pressure cooker pork carnitas as full of flavor! I love the citrusy smokey flavor!
It’s Tuesday today and that makes me think of Tacos! This Instant Pot Pork Carnitas recipe will make your taco game stronger! They are fast to make and delicious! I broiled some of the meat in the oven to crisp it up after it is done cooking then put it back into the juice in the Instant Pot. Everyone loved the citrus flavor of the pork.
I did not eat any of this delicious pork carnitas because I am still following a vegan diet. I am craving crab and lobster the most…. what does that say? If there was any of this pork left over I would be eating it for sure! I love the way the citrus smells while it is cooking with the pork. So yummy!
