It’s Day 30(!!!), and I saved (one of) the best recipes for last: Whole30-friendly Instant Pot Carnitas!
Here you are, on the last day of your Whole30, so let’s take a moment to reflect on all the changes you’ve experienced this January. Remember when you first got started, a little sluggish, a little scared, and kinda-sorta unsure whether you were going to make it through all 30 days? And look at you now: You feel like a new person.

So a loud and hearty cheer of congratulations is in order—BUT YOU’RE NOT QUITE DONE YET!
I’ll get to what you have to do next, but first, you gotta celebrate. That’s where my Instant Pot Carnitas comes in. I’ve perfected a Whole30-friendly version of this Mexican classic that uses an Instant Pot to make cooking a breeze. Plus, the results can go toe-to-porky-toe with the carnitas at your favorite taqueria!
This Instant Pot Carnitas is the perfect End-Of-Your-Whole30 Party dish. Bring out a big platter of these citrus-kissed carnitas at your next Whole30 shindig, and you’ll be the most popular person in attendance—even though you’ve avoided going out to eat with your pals the entire month of January, and everyone (who hasn’t done a Whole30 with you) thinks you’re either an anti-social shut-in or a weird health nut.
Seriously: THIS’LL SHOW ’EM! Get the…
