Do you have an Instant Pot?
Have you been on the fence about buying one?
I finally jumped on the Instant Pot band wagon a few months ago when Amazon had a killer deal on them. It actually sat in my cupboard for several weeks gathering dust until I finally got brave enough to give it a try. Let me just say I am in love with it. There is definitely a learning curve, but I am getting the hang of it and loving it more and more each time I use it.
For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of ever eating at Cafe Rio, let me offer you my condolences. If you’re lucky enough to live by one then you know how fabulous it is. We are huge Cafe Rio fans and the pork is our very favorite meat there. I had tried several copycat recipes and finally found one that is the closest to the real deal. I made a few slight adjustments and it quickly became my go-to recipe.
I’ve made this Cafe Rio Sweet Pork in my slow cooker for years (I can’t believe I’ve never posted it. . . so sorry!). The the other day I realized how simple it would be to turn it into an Instant Pot recipe so I tried it and voila, a star was born.
We use this to make the famous Cafe Rio Pork Salad, tacos, quesadillas, burritos, etc. We can’t get enough of it. Now it goes without saying that having the Cafe Rio dressing to go along with this is an absolute must. So I always make sure I have a batch of that made up.Just look how amazing that pork is. It’s sweet, juice and so tender. You will want to make this over and over. I will definitely be posting more Instant Pot recipes and you have any to share, I’d love to try them.Print
