In a medium bowl, combine the Rub Mixture ingredients, then add the pork pieces and coat thoroughly.
Add oil to the Instant Pot. Using the display panel select the SAUTE function.When oil gets hot, brown the pork on both sides, 2-3 minutes per side. Meat will not be cooked through. Do not crowd the pot--you may have to work in batches. Transfer browned meat to a shallow dish and cover loosely with foil.
While still on sauté, add garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes until brown.
Add ¼ cup of the orange juice to the pot and deglaze by using a wooden spoon to scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pot.
Add quartered onion and jalapeño to the pot, and lay pork pieces on top of the onion. Then add the remaining orange juice and lime juice and beer.
Turn the pot off by selecting CANCEL , then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
Using the display panel select the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 60 minutes.
When the time is up, let the pressure naturally release for 15 minutes, then quick-release the remaining pressure.
Carefully remove the pork from the pot to a parchment-lined baking sheet and shred. Pour 2/3 cup cooking juice over the meat. Set the pan under the broiler until tips of pork are browned and slightly crisp, 3-5 minutes.
Or instead of putting it in under the broiler:
Shred meat and put in a large bowl. Heat a large skillet, med-high, and then do this in batches:Once pan is nice and hot then, add 1 tbsp butter, 1-2 garlic (minced) and juice of ½ a lemon. Combine and then add meat and cook for a minute or 2 to get crispy bits. Flipping once or twice. Remove and repeat until you've gone through all the meat.
Serve warm on top of corn tortillas, topped with chopped cilantro, pickled cabbage and/or chipotle crema or cilantro crema. A great cilantro mix is to combine finely chop cilantro, finely chopped onion and squeeze lemon juice and mix together.
