“Perfect for taco bars! This can be easily adapted to a slow cooker, but the pressure cooker really seals in the flavor and cuts down on cooking time. All the leftover broth from the pressure cooker is packed full of flavor, great as a starter for chile verde, and freezes well. Serve carnitas with white corn tortillas, guacamole and pico.” - by yellowpairs ♥

- Place the oil into a pressure cooker over medium-high heat. Brown the pork cubes on all sides in the hot oil, and stir in the poblano, jalapeno, and serrano peppers, onion, garlic, coriander, cumin, and beef broth. Lock the lid onto the pressure cooker, bring the cooker up to pressure, and reduce heat to keep the pressure steady.
- Cook under medium steady pressure for 1 hour, remove the cooker from the heat, place in the sink, and run cold water over the lid of the cooker until the pressure has been released. Carefully remove the lid, and serve.

" These carnitas were amazing... very authentic flavor. Made them for a large crowd and they were gone like that. I modified a bit. I left the pork in larger chunks so i could shred. Added sea salt and..." See more pepper. My family like spicy so I added a few extra peppers and when it was done in pressure cooker i shredded it and put it is a roasting pan in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes to crisp it up a bit. Will definately make these again and again. Thanks so much for the fantastic recipe Korgilover!!! "
"Fabulously tender meat with a great flavor!! I cooked for an hour on low pressure in a Cuisinart electric pressure cooker and it turned out perfectly. We have so many plans for the left-overs. Than..." See moreks for this great recipe."
"I'm sure it's not proper or traditional, but I'm neither a carnitas aficionado nor a carnitas snob - I used what I had on hand in the freezer to make this - pork chop suey meat! And it was wonderful..." See more. I browned the meat as directed, then threw everything in the Crock Pot. Nice balance of flavors, the meat was soft and tender, and the bite-sized pieces were perfect for stuffing in tortillas with some pico de gallo. The only thing I found this was lacking was salt!"
