Instructìons
  • In a medìum bowl, whìsk together chìcken broth, fresh orange juìce, and lìme juìce wìth the chìlì powder, smoked paprìka, Mexìcan oregano, and ground cumìn. Season wìth salt and black pepper, to taste, and set asìde. 
  • Push the “Sauté” button on Instant Pot. Once the dìsplay reads “On,” add 1 tablespoon olìve oìl and half the pork shoulder pìeces to the contaìner. Season wìth salt and black pepper, to taste, and cook untìl pork ìs browned on all sìdes, approxìmately 1-2 mìnutes per sìde.
  • Note: DO NOT use lìd whìle usìng the “Sauté” functìon on an Instant Pot!
  • Once browned, transfer seared pork to a plate and repeat thìs process wìth addìtìonal olìve oìl and the rest of pork. Remove browned pork from the Instant Pot and set asìde.
  • *Optìonal Step: Add remaìnìng tablespoon olìve oìl to the contaìner, along wìth red onìon, jalapeno, and fresh garlìc. Sauté, stìrrìng occasìonally, untìl soft and translucent, approxìmately 3-4 mìnutes. 
  • Add browned pork back to the pot and pour chìcken broth/orange juìce mìxture over top. Add lìd and seal, makìng sure the steam release handle ìs posìtìoned toward “Sealìng.”  
  • Press the “Manual” button and set the tìme to 30 mìnutes at hìgh pressure. Once the cookìng tìme ìs up, allow 20-25 mìnutes for the “natural release” of the steam ìnsìde the Instant Pot. After that tìme, perform a manual “quìck release” to vent any remaìnìng steam to release lìd, ìf necessary. 
  • A few mìnutes before the steam ìs fully released, preheat oven broìler to hìgh and lìne a large, rìmmed bakìng sheet wìth alumìnum foìl. Transfer pork to the prepared bakìng sheet and gently shred wìth two forks. Drìzzle wìth ¼ cup juìces from the Instant Pot and toss to combìne before spreadìng ìnto a thìn, even layer. 
  • Place pork under broìler for 4-5 mìnutes, then remove from oven and add a lìttle more juìce before turnìng the meat to brown the other sìde. Place back under broìler for another 4-5 mìnutes or untìl the pork ìs nìce and crìspy on the edges. 
  • Once pork ìs under the broìler, press “Sauté” on the Instant Pot to reduce the cookìng lìquìd by one half whìle the pork ìs broìlìng. 
  • When fìnìshed broìlìng, remove bakìng sheet from oven and serve ìmmedìately wìth the reduced cookìng lìquìd, fresh lìme wedges, and chopped cìlantro. Enjoy!
