*If you do not have toum, add in 2 tsp garlic powder to your spice mixture and rub pork loin with 2 tbsp olive oil.

*If you do not have an Instant Pot, you may cook your pork in the oven. Place in a roasting pan after seasoning as specified, add 2 cups water or broth and cover with foil. Roast in oven for 2-3 hours at 300 degrees. Pork should come out tender and able to shred.
