30 minutes is all you need to make these Instant Pot sweet pork tacos! Loaded up with all of your favorite toppings, you'll have these fresh and flavorful tacos on the dinner table in no time.
Who LOVES tacos? I am a huge fan of any and all tacos, especially when they are loaded with tons of fresh ingredients - avocados, tomatoes, cheese, basically everything that makes a taco so tasty, which also perfectly fits the description for the sweet pork tacos in today's recipe!
These sweet pork tacos are inspired by my cruise to Mexico last February. We had a port of call in Cancun, and I got to try true Mexican tacos for the first time ever. They were taco perfection. Homemade tortillas, fresh pico de gallo, creamy guacamole, sweet marinated pork, seriously though, taco perfection. I really don't think I'll ever go back to the hard shell, mediocre American tacos ever again.
Okay, maybe that's an exaggeration. Because let's be honest, those ones are seriously easy (this is my favorite way to make them!) to make and they taste pretty good. So maybe I'll just stick with keeping both in the dinner rotation.
I'm going to be brutally honest with you. These sweet pork tacos aren't 100% authentic. I mean, have you ever heard of Mexican street tacos that have pork marinated in Coke and cooked in an Instant Pot? I didn't think so. So if you are looking for something more authentic, then this definitely isn't the recipe for you. But, on the other hand I certainly don't think you'll be disappointed! Plus, they are made in the Instant Pot! Win!
This pork is not too sweet and not too spicy, it has just the right amount of flavor so it doesn't overpower the other toppings. Plus, it is made in the Instant Pot in 30 minutes! It's so easy to make, and it's seriously addicting. I'm pretty sure I had at least four of these tacos when I made these for dinner. Not even joking.
When it comes to these tacos, I love to keep it real simple with avocado, pico de gallo, and queso fresco. But you can really use whatever toppings you like!
Do me a favor and celebrate Taco Tuesday this week with these tacos and this traditional Mexican drink. Okay?
