For a tasty dinner in a pinch, try this Instant cuban pork shoulder, adapted from Eating in an Instant's Instant Pot Cuban Pork recipe.


  1. Add 1 fresh squeezed lime juice to Instant Pot
  2. Add 1/2 cup of orange juice to Instant Pot and lime juice (I added a small splash more for good measure).
  3. Add 6 cloves of minced garlic to the juices and mix.
  4. Add thawed pork shoulder/butt roast to the Instant pot with the juice and garlic.
  5. Season the roast with cumin, oregano, salt, and pepper on all sides.
  6. Add either 1/2 cup of turkey (or chicken) broth or water to the pot (broth is more nourishing and flavorful, but water works, too).
  7. Close lid and set valve to seal. Cook on high pressure for 45 minutes.
  8. On the stove, prepare your favorite rice according to its instructions, then add a squeeze of fresh lime and some chopped cilantro (optional - to taste) before serving.
  9. When roast is finished, release valve pressure and use forks to shred. 
  10. Top with juice from the pot and serve with rice, salsa, guacamole, hot sauce, and tortilla chips for a tasty supper delight! :)
