Sweet and Sour Pork III

My husband's grandmother was Chinese. She taught me this one. This is the way Gramma made Sweet and Sour all her life (she died 6 years ago at age 94). The secret is apple cider vinegar.

Pressure Cooker Carnitas

Rating: 4.6 stars
Perfect for taco bars! This can be easily adapted to a slow cooker, but the pressure cooker really seals in the flavor and cuts down on cooking time. All the leftover broth from the pressure cooker is packed full of flavor, great as a starter for chile verde, and freezes well. Serve carnitas with white corn tortillas, guacamole and pico.

This is always ready for tailgating and barbecues! I serve either on toasted rolls or with a starch like rice and a vegetable. Try using two different bottles of barbeque sauce: one smoky and sweet; one spicy.
