I heart tacos! And I especially heart carnitas tacos. I used my usual carnitas recipe (linked to below), but made it in my Instant Pot using about 2 pounds of bone-in country-style pork ribs and scaling down the rest of the ingredients accordingly (this makes enough for about 3-4 people). Just add all the ingredients to the Instant Pot, hit the meat/stew button, and let the pressure come down naturally once the cycle finishes. It will still make your house smell amazing but in about a third of the usual cooking time. You'll need to turn on your oven to crisp up the pork at the end, but it's still a major time savings and with delicious results. Here, the rich pork is paired with a super-tart raw tomatillo salsa, scallions, and sour cream for simple yet super-tasty tacos. The salsa is medium spicy, so feel free to add more jalapenos or sub in a spicier pepper if you want it super hot.
Carnitas, recipe here (or make in the Instant Pot using the "meat/stew" function to speed things up!)

Tomatillo Salsa (adapted from Cooking Light)
4 medium tomatillos
1/2 cup coarsely chopped white onion
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp sugar
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 jalapeno chili, coarsely chopped (leave in or remove seeds to adjust heat)
1 cup lightly packed cilantro
Remove the husks from the tomatillos and rinse well under cold water. Quarter them, and place in a blender or food processor. Add everything except the cilantro. Process until well blended. Add the cilantro and process again until well blended.
