2-4 lbs. Pork Tenderloin
3 tsp. Fajita Seasoning
2 tsp. Coconut Sugar
1/2 c. Freshly Squeeze Orange Juice
3 tsp. chili powder

1 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. Italian seasoning blend
Cut Pork Tenderloin into 4-5 even pieces
Combine Fajita Seasoning & Coconut Sugar then coat the pork tenderloin (this can be done all in the instant pot for easy clean up).
Squeeze juice of 1 lime over the pork, then place the lime into instant pot (face the pulp side down).
Pour 1/2 cup of orange juice into the pot
Cook in Instant Pot on high pressure, manual, 40 minutes.
Let pressure naturally release, shred/pull pork apart in separate serving bowl.

If you'd like the pork to be crispier, you may opt to add the shredded pork to a baking sheet and broil on 500F for 5 minutes.
You can add 1-2 tbsp. of BBQ sauce for more flavor while broiling (or just more sea salt and fresh lime juice).
There will be leftover juices in the instant pot, you can add 1 tbsp of honey and cook it down over stovetop for a thick sauce to top over pork.
You can replace the orange juice with 1 fresh orange and 1/2 cup water.
If you do not have an InstantPot, you can use the crockpot: cook on high for 6-8 hours.
*Please use organic and natural ingredients whenever possible.
