In attempts to find easy-to-make dinners that will not contribute to heart disease I have officially come across my favorite recipe yet, the video can be found here! There are a lot of variations possible with this recipe and if you don't have an Instant Pot you can just bring out the trusty slow cooker and cook on low for 8-12 hours.
6 lbs carnitas meat (or trimmed pork shoulder)
6 tbsp taco seasoning (chile powder, garlic, onion, salt, cumin, chipotle)
2 yellow onion, julienned
2 c orange juice
1 tsp olive oil
1. Caramelize onions. This can be done on the "sauté"setting with an Instant Pot.
2. While onions are caramelizing, in a large bowl, uniformly coat the meat with the spices.
3. Once onions have caramelized stir the pork in, top with the orange juice and cover with lid.
4. With Instant Pot set to high pressure for 35 minutes. For slow cooker, add all ingredients and allow to cook for 8 to 12 hours on low. Recipe makes 11 pint size servings.
