3poundspork shoulder roastsliced into 2" slices. This cut of meat has some marbling and is not super lean. like a loin.
1 12ozjar favorite green salsait could be slightly more or less than this, just make sure there is at least 1 cup liquid in the pot before bringing to pressure. (I used Trader Joe's Salsa Verde, flavorful but mild for my kids!)
1/2 cuplime juice
Brothonly if you you want it more saucy or soup like!
Preheat the Instant Pot to saute while you prep the pork.
Mix the spice mix together, and dredge each slice of pork in the mixture.
Place a single layer on the bottom of hot Instant Pot to brown. After 3-5 minutes, use some tongs to turn the slices and brown the other side. I do this is 2 batches usually. Do not crowd the pieces or they will not brown well.
When all the pieces are browned, place all pork back into the pot, and add your green salsa, and lime juice or broth if using.
Lock on the lid, and set the 'Meat/Stew" setting, 35 minutes at high pressure.
Once the time is up, hit 'Cancel', and quick release.
Open the lid, and hit the 'Saute" button to get the liquid simmering. Boil down by at least half to concentrate the flavors (if you like)! I saute until almost all the liquid is gone and the meat is frying in it's own fat and crisping up nicely!
