Cuban Pulled Pork

When it comes to hosting a meal, I'm a big fan of pulled pork.  There are many varieties and it can be made as fancy or as simple as you like. This recipe is based on a freeze-ahead slow cooker recipe from as part of one of her $150 Aldi shopping plans where you prep twenty meals.

I liked the idea, but once I got my Instant Pot, I no longer really needed to prep as much ahead.  You can make this is an hour and a half so I can start it when I get home or even on weekends after we clean up from lunch.  Here's my adjusted version.

Cuban Pulled Pork

  • 2 lb Pork Tenderloin
  • 1/2 Large Sweet Onion - Diced
  • 3 tsp garlic - minced
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup beef broth
  1. Combine all ingredients in Instant Pot.
  2. Cook at high pressure for 60 minutes
  3. Natural pressure release for 10 minutes. Then shred pork and stir back into juices.
I generally serve with small flour tortillas and some guacamole.  Served that way, this recipe will serve 6-8 adults.
