When I impulsively bought boneless pork loin at Meijer through a “buy one, get one free” deal, I knew I wanted to use my Cuisinart Electric Pressure Cooker (similar to the Instant Pot). The first night I made pork tacos, the second night Jeremy made pork enchiladas.
This recipe details out preparing the pork for tacos, which is super easy. The enchilada recipe is posted as well — it requires more time and effort, but is just as tasty.
This recipe will yield six to eight tacos — about four per person for a duo or a few less is you’re serving a family. This also would be great in a quesadilla or in nachos.
Pressure Cooker Pork Tacos
- 1/4 tsp. ground cayenne
- 1/4 tsp. ground coriander
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. onion powder
- 1/4 tsp. chipotle powder
- 1/4 tsp. chili powder
- 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp. oregano
- 2 tsp. cumin
- 3 chipotle peppers with 1 to 2 tbsp. adobo sauce, chopped
- 2 lbs. pork loin (give or take)
- Nature's seasoning (or salt and pepper)
- 3/4 c. chicken broth
- 1 tsp. minced garlic
- 2 bay leaves
- Taco shells and your favorite toppings
- Mix dry seasonings in a small bowl or cup. Set aside.
- Trim pork and cut into 2 to 3 large chunks. Season with Nature’s Seasoning and brown in a cast iron pan (a few minutes each side).
- In the meantime, add chicken broth to the electric pressure cooker pot. Add minced garlic and bay leaves and stir.
- Once the pork is browned, place it in pot and rub with the dry spice mix. Add remaining mix to the broth.
- Top each meat chunk with a teaspoon or so of chipotles in adobo sauce. Mix the remaining sauce and chipotles in the broth.
- Cook on high for 50 minutes. Allow for natural release.
- Remove pork and shred.
- Serve with your favorite taco toppings, such as black beans, guacamole, onions, peppers, tomatoes, salsa, sour cream, cilantro and cheese.
- I highly recommend topping these tacos with fresh chopped cherry tomatoes, seasoned black beans and a touch of sour cream. I like to season my black beans with a bit of Desert Heat seasoning from Buffalo Wild Wings!
