Kinder’s Instant Pot Carnitas Tacos


3-4 lb pork butt, deboned and cut into 2-3 inch cubes

Kinder’s The Taco Blend, 2 packets or 4 tbsp

2 tbsp Olive Oil

1 cup chicken broth

10-12 flour tortillas

1 lime, cut into wedges

4 oz cotija cheese, crumbled

1 red onion, 1/2 sliced and 1/2 pickled (optional)

5 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped

1 jalapeno, deseeded and diced


Step 1

Set Instant Pot to sauté/sear and add olive oil. Once the olive oil begins to smoke add a layer of pork into the Instant Pot. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until browned, and flip. Continue to brown all of the pieces of pork.

Step 2

Place all pork into Instant Pot and add chicken broth.

Step 3

Place pressure cooker lid on Instant Pot and secure. Note: Be sure to turn spout to “seal”.

Step 4

Pressure cook on HIGH for 35 minutes and allow the Instant Pot to “natural release” after for approximately 25-35 minutes.

Step 5

While your pork is cooking, combine your 1/2 white onion, cilantro and jalapeno into a small mixing bowl.

Step 6

Remove pork from Instant Pot and shred with two forks or your hands.

Step 7

Heat tortillas and fill with shredded pork, onion/jalapeno/cilantro mix, cheese and top with pickled onions. Add any other of your preferred toppings and enjoy!

Step 8

No pressure cooker? No problem! To use a standard slow cooker, prep meat as shown above and sear on stove top for 3-4 min until browned. Place in slow cooker with chicken broth on LOW for 6-7 hrs or HIGH for 4 hrs.
