Step 1

Turn your instant pot to saute and add in oil. Once heated, add the pork loin to the instant pot along with the spices. Turn to sear each side of the pork cuts. Turn the instant pot off once the meat is seared.

Step 2

Add in the orange juice and beer and scrape up any browned bits on the bottom of the inner pot.

Step 3

Seal the pressure cooker and be sure vent is pointing to "sealed." Set pressure to high and cook for 40 minutes for a shoulder or butt roast. Cook for 30 minutes if using a pork loin roast.

Step 4

Once cook time has elapsed, let pressure release naturally, or FOR AT LEAST 15 minutes.

Step 5

Remove the pork from the inner pot and place into a large bowl. Shred the pork with 2 forks or kitchen mixer (stand or hand-held mixer both work.)

Step 6

If you want to crisp the edges of the shredded pork, place meat on rimmed sheet pan with 1/2 cup cooking liquid and broil under high heat for 3-5 minutes per side.

Step 7

Serve Mexican pork with tortillas and shredded cheese, over rice, or over baked potatoes.
