We love the Instant Pot + SpicyMe combo for making EASY food that is so, so good. This pork is shredded and then put under the broiler to brown, so we don't even bother pre-browning the meat. Also, we pick whatever pork is on sale. A fatty roast or country-style ribs are both fine.
3 T. vegetable oil
2 1/2 or 3 lbs. raw pork

1. TENDER MEAT: Place oil into Instapot and add pork and 2t. of SpicyMe TACO AF. Close the lid and use the Meat setting to cook for 35 minutes.
After the cooking stops and the pot cools to opening, the meat will be much smaller and sitting in a colorful, oily broth. Separate the meat onto a cutting board or plate to cool some and save the liquid.
2. SPICY FLAVOR: Once you can comfortably handle the meat, use two forks or scissors (or your fingers) to pull and shred the meat into the size that you desire. (We usually shred some up and leave some in nice, meaty chunks.) Mix in 3 t. of SpicyMe TACO AF.
3. CRISP IT UP: Place the shredded meat on a cookie sheet or shallow baking pan. Spoon 1/4 c. of the reserved juices over the meat. Place under the broiler for 4-10 minutes until it has the color and crispiness that you prefer.
