    Instant Pot Puerto Rican Pernil

    Imagine this - you're sitting on the beach, sun shining, waves crashing and a mojito in your hand when the most wonderful aroma wafts over to you. It's a citrusy, spicy, and mouthwatering pork roast more flavorful than anything you've ever had. Cooking and eating this should remind you of the best parts of island life. It's ok to use fresh squeezed orange juice, lime juice, or a combination of both instead of grapefruit juice, but please, don't ever make this with bottled juice.—Cristina Carrera, Kenosha, Wisconsin
