    Hi Suzanne!

    Thanks for your interest in this recipe! I chatted with Erica about your question, and she has not made this using an Instant Pot pressure setting/pressure cooker, so we can’t offer specific settings or timing suggestions.

    That said, I read through a few other recipes for Cochinita Pibil and Carnitas (which also uses citrus and pork shoulder), and saw ratios from 0.25 cups liquid/1 lb pork to 0.8 cups liquid/1 lb pork. Our recipe already falls within that range.

    When checking for timing, there was also a range of recommendations depending on how large the pieces of pork were cut, and how many pounds were used. It seems like 45-60 minutes at high pressure, with natural pressure release could be a good place to start, but since our recipe uses a whole cut of meat you may need additional time and/or liquid.

    I hope this is helpful, and if you end up trying it out in the Instant Pot I’d love to hear how it goes!

    This is my go-to large family get-together meal. Everyone loves it. The pickled onions are amazing! Carlito’s Rojito Yucatán is one of my favorite spices too!

    Would it be possible to do this in an Instant Pot? Ive got the pork and the Carlito Rojito Yucantan Rub. Setting and timing?

    Thanks Lynn! Glad you enjoyed the recipe. Great idea to use turkey!

    Great recipe. I love the Carlito Rojito Yucatan Rub: great alternative to the available commercial achiote pastes which all have chemicals/preservatives, and much more convenient than, and comparable to, making the achiote paste from scratch…speaking from personal experience! Nice recipe: as we do not eat pork, subbed out turkey thigh and added some duck fat and butter for that delicious fat element.
