Instant Pot Pork Carnitas Rice Bowls. Sear pork in Instant Pot on saute setting instead of in skillet. Cooked pork longer than recipe; 68 total minutes. For the pork, I didn’t have sazon, so I used the following:  1/8 tsp each of coriander, cumin, turmeric, garlic powder, kosher salt and oregano; a dash of black pepper; and (I like kick) 1/8 tsp chipotle powder and a dash of habanero powder. I don’t have adobo seasoning, so I think I just used 1/4 tsp cayenne. Loved the flavor–lot of heat without salty taste. Used pork to make loaded wild rice bowls with romaine lettuce, red onion, avocado, cilantro, tomato, jalapeno, lime wedges, black beans (cooked 1 cup dry black beans in instant pot for 50 minutes with 1/2 chopped onion, 3 cloves of minced garlic, some spices and 4 cups of low sodium chicken broth), red bell pepper and red onion sauteed in bacon grease, adobo sauce (mixed a bit of the adobo sauce from the chipotle peppers in adobo with plain Greek yogurt), salsa.
