Easy Pork Tacos

We have taco night once a week and tonight I felt like changing it up. I cooked a pork roast in the pressure cooker and then finished the shredded meat under the broiler. It made the absolute best tacos!

I seasoned the pork shoulder on all sides with this fiesta ranch mix. Then I browned it in the instant pot with a little olive oil.

I then poured this on top the meat and added about 1/2 cup water. (I scraped the bottom of the pan to get all the flavor). I then pressure cooked it for 1 hour.

Shred the meat and put it in a pan with a couple ladles of the gravy. Put it in the oven under the broiler until bubbly. Watch closely!
