These Instant Pot Pork Carnitas are one of the easiest meals you could ever make. They are so insanely delicious you’ll want to make them over and over again!
If I told you that you could have the most amazing pork carnitas with only a pork roast and some salt, would you believe me?
Well you should, because it’s true!
You guys, we can’t get enough of these Instant Pot Pork Carnitas. My friend told me how to make these and I was completely blown away and how ridiculously good they are. I mean it’s pork roast with salt on it, that’s it, nothing else. How could they be thaaat good?
Now I absolutely love these pork carnitas, but these Instant Pot Pork Carnitas can literally be thrown together in 3 minutes and thrown into your Instant Pot. . . with only salt sprinkled on the pork!
The meat is the most flavorful thing ever! It’s a miracle there is even any left to crisp up because we literally eat it with our fingers while I’m shredding it.Now the key is to really make sure you salt it well enough. Be generous, but if you’re worried about over-salting it then you can do less and then just salt it more once it’s shredded if you think it needs it.
Crisp up the meat in a nonstick skillet and pile it on a corn tortilla, some chopped onion and cilantro and squeeze a little lime juice . . . .it’s carnitas heaven, I swear!
Hopefully if you didn’t already have one, you grabbed an Instant Pot from one of the Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales. If you did, then this needs to be the first recipe you make the second Mr. UPS man delivers it. If you already have one, then run to the store, buy a pork butt roast and make these carnitas!
If I were to let my husband and each of my boys share their feelings about these carnitas, this blog post may never end. They shovel these in their mouths like there is no tomorrow. Not even joking.Print
