This is an amazing recipe recommendation and meal suggestion my friend sent me last week! Plus it's a Nom Nom Paleo recipe, so you know it's a good one. Honestly though once I saw pressure cooker I was sold. That Instant Pot is a serious meal prep game changer. Instead of using a Pork Shoulder Roast I used Center Cut Port Roast since it's a little bit leaner. I also did not end up putting the cooked pork in a skillet to crisp up at the end, but I imagine that would make the pork even tastier. The original recipe pictures a taco salad with the carnitas, but I opted for a baked sweet potato with spinach and a mango salsa with white onion garnish. There are a ton of ingredients listed under garnish though, so just pick the ones you know you enjoy! This meal turned out so delicious and you can make a different meal out of the pork everyday if you want to. I have some of the Siete’s grain-free tortillas mentioned below that I plan to use for some of my mother's meals. Anyways, just wanted to mention again that I am very grateful for friends who send me paleo recipes to try! Surround yourself with people who make you better!
