There are a million different sauces and glazes for carnitas, a Mexican staple. After a trip eating our way through Texas last year, we became enamored of the mix of lime and basil, a sort of nouveau Southwestern tweak on the classic. The lime marmalade will not only provide the essentially sour pop but offer some sugar which will be crucial in the next step: frying the pieces of cooked pork to render them irresistibly crunchy. Beyond • You must halve the recipe for a 3-quart cooker. • You can fry the pork right in the Instant Pot, using the SAUTÉ function on HIGH or MORE. Because the surface area of the pot is smaller than that of a skillet, you’ll need to work with a greater number of batches. • For a more savory dish, reduce the lime marmalade to 1/3 cup and add 1 tablespoon soy sauce. • For a sweeter dish, substitute orange marmalade for the lime. • Serve with lots of corn or flour tortillas, sour cream, and purchased pico de gallo.Inspired by: https://recipes.instantpot.com/recipe/kick-butt-carnitas/
