Instant Pot Citrus Pork Shoulder Recipe
Makes 12 servings | Gluten free and dairy free
1 Tbsp kosher salt
2 tsp garlic powder
Zest of 1 orange
Zest of 1 lime
1 tsp ground black pepper
5 pounds boneless pork shoulder - cut into 3-4 pieces
1 Tbsp coconut oil or ghee
½ c. liquid (including citrus juice from orange and lime plus water if needed)
- In a small bowl, mix salt, garlic, orange zest, lime zest and pepper. Season pork pieces with spice mixture.
- Select Instant Pot SAUTE function; heat coconut oil. Sear pork in batches, until well browned on the outside.
- Add liquid and return meat to the pot. Twist lid to seal.
- Select MANUAL function and set timer for 70 minutes. Allow to naturally depressurize. (For a slow cooker, the searing step can either be skipped (eliminate the fat) or done in a pan and transferred to the slow cooker. Cook about 6-8 hours on low or until tender enough to shred.)
