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
