Updated: Aug 3, 2021

Instant Pot Pulled Pork Fajitas


  • 2-4 lbs. Pork Tenderloin

  • 3 tsp. Fajita Seasoning

  • 2 tsp. Coconut Sugar

  • 1 Lime

  • 1/2 c. Freshly Squeeze Orange Juice

Fajita Seasoning

  • 3 tsp. chili powder

  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

  • 1 tsp. cumin

  • 1 tsp. granulated garlic

  • 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.

Serving/Pairing Ideas:

  • organic white rice

  • coconut flour wraps

  • organic whole wheat wraps

  • sauteed peppers and onions

  • pickled onions

  • raw, red cabbage sauerkraut

  • shredded broccoli slaw

  • fresh grape tomatoes

  • fresh avocado

  • raw shredded cheddar cheese

  • organic sour cream

  • organic fresh salsa

  • fresh cilantro or parsley


  • 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.
