Honey Balsamic Pork Tenderloin – In the Instapot

I swear I’ve used my Instapot more this week than I have in the past few weeks. It has come in handy to make lunch meat alternatives or just quick meal prep. The Boys love pork tenderloin but I hadn’t tried to cook one in the Instapot and figured it was high time!

This is the recipe I used to make it and it was a huge success…. not only were both plates devoured, it also passed the Chocolate Milk test lol!

Here are the ingredients used for this recipe.

Because of the size of my Instapot, I cut the 2 pork tenderloins in half to make them fit in the bowl.

I poured the olive oil in the bowl of the instapot and seared all sides of the pork tenderloin before removing them to a plate.

Next I added the broth, balsamic vinegar, honey and minced garlic to the pot, whisking to combine and stirring enough to pick up the bits that stuck when searing the pork.

I sprinkled the pork with the salt and pepper and set the Instapot to Pressure Cook for 6 minutes.

Once cooked I removed the pork tenderloin from the pot and added 2 tbsp. corn starch mixed with 1/3 cup water to the pot.

I switched it to Saute and allowed it to cook, while whisking, until the gravy reached the desired consistency.

I sliced the Pork tenderloin and served it with mashed potatoes, asparagus and the gravy!
