    Instant Pot Pork Carnitas

    Carnitas Tacos feature slightly braised pork with pressure cooked in tangy/zesty notes that match perfectly with the vegetables and your favorite sauce. Dripping with delicious juice these tacos will be a hit during your next communal feasting. They are perfectly small, if you do not want to over indulge, you can just sample these traditionally styled tortilla loaded snacks. However, if you brought your appetite with you to the table then you will enjoy satisfying the hunger within by munching on these flavor filled delights.

    If you enjoy tacos and are looking for an easy recipe, then I suggest you watch the video and follow the instructions below to initiate the planning of your next meal. Best served on freshly toasted tortillas, as they tend to get a bit stale after a few hours. Store ingredients separately if you have leftovers to reheat and enjoy later. Feel free to like and share this or any other recipes in my growing catalogue of eatfoodlicious tutorials, suggestions and ideas.
