Whole30 Instant Pot Pork Carnitas

If you own an instant pot and our sauces this recipe is a must make! We make this dish at least once a week at our home. You can also search on our website for the chicken version, they are both REALLY good!


1 pack of pork shoulder cut in 2 inch cubes (about 4 pounds)

4 TBSP of Zesty Cilantro sauce ( for a sweeter version use our Pineapple Thai or Tangy Mango)

Juice of 2 limes

4 garlic cloves crushed

1/2 teaspoon of salt 

1/2 teaspoon of pepper

2 laurel leaves




1- Add all your ingredients to the instant pot and toss to combine. Let your meat marinade for about 15 minutes. 

2- Pressure cook on HIGH for 35 minutes. Natural release for 10 min

3- Pull meat apart with two forks and for a crispy finish transfer to a baking dish and broil for 5 minutes.


Serve with Jicama tortillas, tostones, add to soup and more! If you like spicy, these carnitas go amazing with a drizzle of our Habanero sauce on top!
