  1. Season the pork with the salt, chili powder  and cumin. Add the pork, garlic and cinnamon stick to the cooking pot of the Cuisinart® Pressure Cooker. Stir together the pineapple juice, water, ketchup and chipotle; add to the cooking pot with the pork. Mix all ingredients together well.
  2. Secure the lid and select High Pressure. Set time for 75 minutes. When the audible beep sounds, let pressure release naturally.
  3. Once the pressure is released completely, the red indicator will drop. Remove lid and transfer the pork to a large mixing bowl; shred with 2 forks or your hands (gloves are recommended). Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.*
  4. Serve approximately 1 tablespoon pulled pork with taco shells, thinly sliced red cabbage, diced fresh pineapple, matchstick radishes, chopped cilantro and lime.

*For added flavor, the strained cooking liquid may be cooked more to reduce into a sauce and added to the shredded pork, tablespoon by tablespoon.
