This Instant Pot tomatillo pork soup is SO easy. So easy that I was slightly embarrassed when my husband said it was one of the best soups I’d ever made. Ever. And I’ve made many soups over the years. He may have been trying to get on my good side but I’d agree that this soup is surprisingly zingy and flavourful. I’ll let you in on a little secret, one that I did not share with my husband, most of its vibrant flavour comes from a jar of sugar-free tomatillo salsa!
I prefer to eat salsa that doesn’t contain any added sugars. If you’re Canadian like I am, the PC Black Label tomatillo salsa is Whole30 compliant and doesn’t contain any thickeners or added sugars. To my American friends, you have a magical store that we Canadians are practically begging to have open here (Trader Joe’s!) that has a tomatillo salsa that works just the same.
If you’ve been cooking along with me for a while, you’ll know how I feel about finishing Instant Pot and slow cooker meals with a hit of acidic freshness to brighten flavours that can become a bit muddled. This step is absolutely essential! To brighten this tomatillo pork soup, add a squeeze of lime, fresh spinach and a large handful of cilantro and you’ll be all set.
