  • 2 bay leaves (not included)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (not included)
  • Kosher salt (not included)
  • Ground black pepper (not included)


  • 4 (13g) garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 (200g) medium onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon (2g) cumin seed, ground
  • 1 teaspoon (2g) cinnamon powder or 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) light soy sauce (not low sodium soy sauce)
  • 55ml juice from 1 fresh orange
  • Kosher salt
  • Ground black pepper
    1. Remove rind and bone from the pork shoulder meat. Cut pork shoulder meat into cubes (~2 – 2 1/4 inches cubes) *** Tip: Don’t throw away the excess fat!
    2. Marinate Pork Shoulder Cubes for 20 min (Place pork shoulder cubes & fat into the Instant Pot’s inner pot, Season very generously with kosher salt and ground black pepper, add 4 crushed garlic cloves, chopped onion, 1 tsp (2g) ground cumin, 1 tsp (2g) cinnamon powder, 2 bay leaves, 1 tbsp (15ml) light soy sauce, and juice (55ml) from 1 orange to the inner pot. Mix well and let the meat marinate for 20 minutes
    3. Pressure Cook Pork Shoulder Cubes - pour ~4/5 cup (200ml) chicken stock in the inner pot, close lid and pressure cook at: High Pressure for 30 minutes / 15 minutes Natural Release (Release the remaining pressure after 15 minutes and open the lid carefully)
    4. Crisp Pork Shoulder Cubes: Transfer the pork shoulder cubes onto a baking tray (Now is a good time to take a bite and see if the pork cubes are salty enough. If the pork cubes are not salty enough, add more kosher salt into the cooking liquid. Taste & adjust accordingly), Drizzle some of the cooking liquid on to each piece (The cooking liquid should be mostly fat. If not, mix ¼ cup (63ml) cooking liquid with 2 tbsp (30ml) of vegetable oil and drizzle over each piece of pork. The fat & oil will protect the meat from drying out and the surface will crisp faster), Place pork shoulder cubes under a broiler or the top rack of a preheated 450°F toaster oven until the surface is crisped (Roughly 8 – 10 minutes), Flip the pork shoulder cubes, drizzle each piece with more cooking liquid and place in the oven again until the surface is crisped. 
    5. (Optional) Heat Corn Tortillas: If you are serving the Carnitas with corned tortillas, you can heat up the corn tortillas when the pork is browning in the oven.
    6. Serve Pressure Cooker Carnitas & Enjoy: You can shred the Pressure Cooker Carnitas with forks or leave them as chunks, Place piping hot Instant Pot Carnitas on top of the warmed corn tortillas with a spoonful of salsa (Pico De Gallo), Finish off with a squeeze of a lime (After crisping the carnitas in the oven, try to eat immediately or else the meat will dry out if you let it sit for too long). Enjoy!
