About this recipe: The combination of chillies, peppers and pork in this recipe is perfect to use in corn tortillas. The pressure cooker allows the meat to be ultra juicy and reduces the cooking time.
Use Poblano peppers for Romano if available, or any other mild, sweet pepper.
Came out just as I'd hoped.... will do frequently...on rice not in tortillas though, and with a splodge of yogurt at the end - 11 Aug 2012
These carnitas were amazing... very authentic flavor. Made them for a large crowd and they were gone like that. I modified a bit. I left the pork in larger chunks so i could shred. Added sea salt and pepper. My family like spicy so I added a few extra peppers and when it was done in pressure cooker i shredded it and put it is a roasting pan in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes to crisp it up a bit. Will definately make these again and again. Thanks so much for the fantastic recipe Korgilover!!! - 16 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Fabulously tender meat with a great flavor!! I cooked for an hour on low pressure in a Cuisinart electric pressure cooker and it turned out perfectly. We have so many plans for the left-overs. Thanks for this great recipe. - 04 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
