Traditionally, carnitas are slow cooked for hours in a large copper cazo (pot) filled with manteca de cerdo (pork lard) and stirred occasionally with an oversize (4- to 6-foot) wooden spoon. While the resulting little pieces of crispy fried pork are absolutely irresistible, the reality is: Ain’t no one got time for that. But with the Instant Pot® you can enjoy a healthier and more flavorful version of carnitas in about an hour. Make a feast out of this easy weeknight meal by serving with Frijoles Borrachos (page 32) and Classic Mexican Rice (page 28), or serve the carnitas as a simple taco filling and top with chopped onion, cilantro, a squeeze of fresh lime juice, and your favorite salsa. To crisp up your carnitas, spread them out on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a 425°F oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden and crisp.Inspired by: https://recipes.instantpot.com/recipe/pork-carnitas/
