With school and fall sports in full swing I’ve got a busy schedule to juggle so the InstaPot is one of my favorite gadgets or ways to cook up a quick and easy meal to feed my family. These InstaPot Carnitas were a big hit with my family so I thought it was time to share. Minimal prep and tons of flavor you won’t believe how easy it is to make this. I love that this recipe can serve up a party or crowd in under 1 hour as well making it great for this fall season!
What You Need
What To Do
Trim off fat pad (if there) and cut long slits to free up the bone (if there) to fit inside your InstaPot.

Chop onions and turn InstaPot on saute.
Saute your onions then drop in your pork.
