Carnitas Street Tacos

We love tacos, we eat them once a week (atleast)! We served them at our wedding as one of our food stations and love taste testing tacos around Virginia Beach. We have an informal rating system! We have yet to find one we don’t like, but we do have some favorites. Lately we have been on a pork kick which inspired me to craft up our own recipe at home. These were a hit, and barely any were leftover. Easy for entertaining or for meal prep in your Instant Pot. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we did!

Ingredients, 4 servings

  • 2 lb boneless pork tenderloin
  • 1 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 tablespoon cloves
  • 1/4 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tablespoon cumin
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 pineapple, chopped
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoon agave
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
Directions. Chop pork into bite size pieces. Combine all other ingredients to make marinate. Pour over pork and leave in fridge for 2-6 hours.
Cook in Instant Pot for 1 hour on meat setting, pressure cook low. Transfer to sheet pan. Crisp up in broiler. Serve in soft taco shells. I suggest adding red onion, jalapeños, cilantro, and queso fresco.
