Simply The Best Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin

This Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin Recipe is flavorful and easy to prepare.

It’s perfect for a weeknight dinner, or for feeding a crowd.

The best part about an Instant Pot is that it has a pressure cooker function.

This means that you can cook a meal in a fraction of the time.

Each dish is cooked with the help of steam and heats up quickly.

In addition to being fast, the Instant Pot uses less energy than other cooking methods as well as your oven.

If you want to know how to make this mouth-watering Pork Tenderloin, then you have come to the right place!


Why This Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin Is So Good

This pork tenderloin is so full of flavor that you might think you aren’t actually eating pork.

It is so tender that it practically melts in your mouth.

The meat flakes apart easily with a fork and the beef gravy really pairs well with it.

Even the leftovers were really good!

I am not a fan of pork, as some of you know, but this recipe really blew me away.

The only other pork recipe I have made that even comes close to this one was the Essence Of Root Beer Crock Pot Roast.

Why You Should Cook Your Pork Tenderloin in the Instant Pot

Do you love pork and want to cook it in a way that it has the the best possible taste?

The pork tenderloin is one of the most popular cuts to cook in an Instant Pot since it’s high in protein and low in fat which means it’s quite lean.

When cooked in an Instant Pot, the pork tenderloin will be juicy, succulent, and full of flavor unlike when it is cooked using other methods.

It will also be the star dish on your family dinner table!

Here is my recipe.

Final Thoughts On This Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin Recipe

When I went to make this recipe, the pork loin was not completely thawed, so I did cook it slightly longer than I did my other Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin recipe.

The result was a pork tenderloin that I thought had more flavor and was a lot more tender than my original recipe.

Of course I did use different spices and a jar of pre-made gravy instead of chicken broth.

The one thing I loved the most about this recipe was that the pork tenderloin didn’t taste like pork, which I feel is a drier, bland meat in comparison to beef.

This Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin was very juicy.

I encourage you to give this recipe a try and let me know in the comment section below how it turned out.
