Stir the mixture and simmer for 15 minutes.
Set time to 20 minutes. Leave it alone until done. Note: Cooking time will vary depending on the cut & amount of meat. Experiment is key! I tend to set it for short cooking time. If not tender, you can repeat the cycle for less time. However, if you think you have set the time longer than it should be – you may cancel the program at any time.
Separate pork and sauce. Shred pork with 2 forks.
Transfer pulled pork into an oven safe baking tray lined with foil for easy cleanup.
Broil for 5 minutes or until pork is crispy.
Remove from oven and pour another ½ cup of juice for a moist and juicy carnitas.
Assemble pork carnitas on tortilla with your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
1. You can crisp pork in the instant pot using the SAUTE program, but I prefer using the oven or the stove. Add oil if you use your instant pot.
2. Cooked pork can be refrigerated up to 3 days and freeze for about a month in a food saver. Freeze some sauce too.
