Instant Pot Honey Lime Pulled Pork Tacos

Homemade pulled pork tacos have never been easier thanks to the hottest new pressure cooker to hit the market – the Instant Pot! Of course, this same recipe can easily be adapted in a slow cooker, but we love the idea of cutting the cooking time in half with a handy new tool. Just season the pork roast, and let the Instant Pot do the rest!

This pulled pork gets its mouthwatering flavor from spicy chipotle powder, tangy lime juice, and our irresistible Organic Pure & Raw Honey for a touch of natural sweetness in every fork-tender bite. We topped these Pulled Pork Tacos with red cabbage, carrots, avocado and an extra spritz of lime juice, but feel free to mix it up with your favorite taco toppings!

2 teaspoons chipotle powder

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon oregano

Salt & pepper, to taste

1 3-pound boneless pork roast

8 cloves garlic, minced

3 limes, juiced

1/3 cup Madhava Natural Sweeteners Organic Pure & Raw Honey

1 tablespoon cornstarch + 1 tablespoon water

Flour tortilla

Taco mix-ins: chopped red cabbage, matchstick carrots, sliced avocado, lime wedges


1. In a small bowl, combine chipotle powder, cumin, oregano and salt and pepper. Rub all over the pork.
2. Turn the Instant Pot to the high sauté setting. Once hot, add the oil and sear the pork until brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove pork to a plate and turn the Instant Pot to the “Warm” setting.
3. To the drippings in the Instant Pot add garlic, lime juice and organic honey, whisking to combine. Once combined, whisk in cornstarch and water, stirring until mixture starts to thicken.
4. Once roux has thickened a bit, place pork back in Instant Pot, secure the lid and set to cook on High Pressure for 1 hour.
5. Once pressure cooking is done, follow manufacturer’s guide for “Quick Release” and carefully remove the lid. It’ll be steamy!
6. Transfer pork to a large bowl and pull apart with 2 forks.
7. While pulling apart the pork, switch Instant Pot to the normal sauteé setting and cook the juices until they’re reduced by half. Use a ladle to remove any fat that rises to the top, and pour 3 cups of the liquid over the pulled pork.
8. To serve, pile pulled pork onto warm flour tortillas and top with red cabbage, carrots, avocado, and a squeeze of lime.
