Tips for Instant pot Shredded pork tacos:

  • Fresh lime juice. This is optional but I like to take fresh limes and squeeze them over the shredded pork before serving. We have a lime squeezer that helps to get every last drop of juice.
  • Warm tortillas. I also use a griddle to quickly fry the flour or corn tortillas in butter for even more flavor. It really adds a lot to the recipe and totally worth the extra few minutes.

The fresh lime and the hot buttered tortillas really make this meal come together. It’s all about the details.

While it is optional, I highly recommend heating the tortillas and squeezing a little bit of fresh lime over the tacos. The difference is amazing.

Topping Ideas

  • Shredded lettuce
  • Pico de gallo. It is very easy to make this. Pico del gallo tastes amazing on these tacos.
  • Salsa Verde. This is always so delicious. You can make salsa verde or purchase it at the grocery store.
  • Onion
  • Shredded cheese

Variations:

  • You can use different cuts of meat. Some options include pork butt or even pork chops.
  • Just use the piece of meat you prefer. I often get what is on sale and use that for Mexican pulled pork. I try to keep a few options in the freezer to make these tacos so I can make this meal in a pinch.
  • It’s perfect for nights you don’t know what is for dinner. It can be made quickly and the meat is so tender and tasty.
  • You will get all of the flavor of a carnitas recipe baked in the oven but in minutes thanks to instant pot carnitas. Serving carnitas is easy for weeknight meals. If you want the meat crispier, place on a baking sheet drizzled with olive oil. Bake at 400 degrees for a few minutes to crisp the edges.
  • Crock pot: You can use the slow cooker to make pulled pork. Use this easy crock pot pork recipe and omit the sauce. Serve on tacos instead of the rolls.

Tips:

  • If you are serious about your tacos like we are, you might want to get one of these handy taco stands. It’s totally optional but makes tacos much easier to serve and enjoy.
  • It helps to keep them upright and all their toppings don’t topple and fall out. We love ours and it’s really great for the kids too. Toppings stay intact and it helps to prevent spills and messes.
  • In fact, we have really adorable dinosaur taco stands for the kids. These are so cute and everyone always goes crazy over them. Make sure you order several if you get these because all the kids will want one. The adults might too.

Leftovers:

  • Salad. Top your favorite salad greens with pulled pork for lunch or dinner the next day.
  • Enchiladas. Turn leftovers into enchiladas for another fabulous meal.
  • Quesadillas. This is such a quick idea and can be made in minutes with leftover shredded pork.

I love having leftover shredded pork because as you can see, it is so easy to use later. My family thinks they are eating a new meal and it is just leftover pork.

  1. Followed the directions and got a burn notice. Does it require more water than what the directions say?

  2. AJ – Mine didn’t require more water. I like the longer cook time so that the pork will shred for the tacos. If you are getting a burn notice, I would add another cup of water. Thank you!

  3. My pork didn’t come out very shred-able… Is there a trick to it? I used pork loin – am I supposed to put the fat side down? I feel like I followed everything correctly so I’m not sure what went wrong.

  4. If the pork was not shreddable, I would cook it longer as it was probably not quite done yet.
