Serves 6-8

Prep Time:
15 minutes

Cooking Time:
45 minutes


4 lbs pork shoulder, excess fat trimmed, cut into 2” pieces
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp brown sugar 
2 tsp salt 
2 tsp cumin 
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder 
½ cup water 
Juice of 1 orange 
Juice of 1 lime 
1 tbsp minced chipotle in adobo 

Cooking Instructions:

  1. In small bowl combine chili powder with brown sugar, salt, cumin, oregano, paprika and garlic powder. Set aside.  
  2. In a 2-cup measuring cup, whisk water with orange juice, lime juice and chipotle. Set aside. 
  3. In pressure cooker (must be a minimum of 3qt), season pork shoulder with spice mixture, tossing to evenly coat all pieces of pork. Pour liquid over top. 
  4. Close lid securely and set vent to “sealing”. Choose manual setting and cook on high pressure for 40 minutes. Cook and let pressure release naturally, about 15-20 minutes. Once done releasing, carefully turn the vent to “venting” to release any extra pressure. Remove the lid. 
  5. Heat broiler to high. Remove pork from liquid and shred with two forks. Arrange pork in an even layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. Spoon about 3-4 tbsp of liquid from pressure cooker over top of the shredded fork. Discard any remaining liquid. 
  6. Broil for 5-7 minutes or until pork is crispy--keep an eye on it as broilers vary in temperature. 
  7. Serve with your favourite burrito bowl toppings
