Ingredients

For the pork:

  • 3-4 lb. boneless pork shoulder excessive fat removed and cut into 2-inch cubes
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. coriander
  • 1 tsp. celery salt
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. thyme
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled
  • 3/4 c. low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp. canola oil avocado oil, or coconut oil

For the pitas:

  • Pitas
  • Thinly sliced red onion
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Minced parsley
  • Hothouse cucumber brunoise
  • Hummus
  • Feta
  • Tzatziki

Instructions

  • Turn the Instant Pot® on the SAUTE setting as you add the pork to the pot (I like to do this as I cut it). This will allow it to brown slightly on the outside. Once all the pork is slightly browned, add seasonings, garlic, and chicken broth.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot® and pressure cook on the MANUAL setting for 35 minutes. After the pork has fully cooked, allow the pressure to come down naturally for 15 minutes, then turn the valve to venting for a quick release. Once the valve pops, remove the lid. Using tongs gently break apart the pork.
  • In a large nonstick skillet set over medium heat, add the oil. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the pork (use tongs to prevent too much liquid from transferring to the pan) and cook until crispy and golden brown. Let the pork cook on one side for 2-3 minutes, flip and cook again. Remove the pork from the pan and transfer to a bowl.
  • Toss pork with a few tablespoons of the cooking liquid. Assemble pitas and serve immediately.

Notes

- Other great toppings include romaine, crispy chickpeas or french fries.
