Directions of Taco
- Place the pork in a large container with a lid. Combine pineapple juice, vinegar, orange juice, lime juice, onion, garlic, peppers, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper and sazon in a mixer; Mix until smooth.
- Pour the sauce over the pork and make sure all the pieces of meat are covered. Seal the container and let marinate for at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours. Turn on a multifunctional pressure cooker and select the Sauté function.
- Add vegetable oil and heat until hot. Add pieces of marinated pork and brown on all sides, reserving an additional sauce, about 5 minutes.
- You may need to work in batches depending on the size of your instant pot. Turn off the Sauté mode and pour the reserved sauce over the pork.
- Close and lock the cover. Select the high pressure according to the manufacturer’s instructions; set the timer to 35 minutes.
- Wait 10 to 15 minutes for the pressure to build up. First release the pressure using the natural release method according to the manufacturer’s instructions, approximately 10 minutes.
- Release the remaining pressure using the manufacturer’s quick release method, approximately 5 minutes.
- Unlock and remove the cover. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven grill. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
- Remove the pork pieces from the pan using tongs or a slotted spoon and place them on the baking sheet. Reserve the sauce in the Instant Pot for now. Use forks to roughly shred the pork, removing and discarding any excess fatty pieces.
- Spread the meat evenly on the prepared baking sheet. Add pineapple chunks to the baking sheet with the meat, then place the baking sheet under the grill.
- Grill until the tips of the meat and pineapple start to get a little brown and crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove from the oven.
- Use a spoon to drizzle the reserved sauce from the instant pot over the meat to moisten it and add a little more marinade flavor.
- Create tacos by portioning the pieces of pork and pineapple on flour tortillas.
- Add the chopped red onion, salsa, avocado and cilantro. Garnish with lime wedges.
