INSTANT POT SWEET PORK TENDERLOIN

One of my favorite weeknight dinners is this Instant Pot Sweet Pork Tenderloin. The flavors are very similar to those in my most popular recipe.
Although I cook with a lot of chicken, I like to shake things up and cook with “the other white meat” to avoid food boredom. This is my favorite Instant Pot pork recipe.


HOW TO MAKE INSTANT POT SWEET PORK TENDERLOIN
One of the best features of the Instant Pot is that you can brown food in it so that you only have one pot to clean. As with many of my other Instant Pot recipes, this one starts with using the saute function to brown the meat.

STEP ONE – BROWN THE PORK
Add a little olive oil to your Instant Pot and choose the saute function. Once the pot is hot, add the tenderloin.

Sear it on each side for 2-3 minutes, then remove to a plate.

STEP TWO – PREPARE THE SAUCE
Next, it’s time to add the apples and onions and prep the deliciously sweet sauce the pork will cook in.

In addition to apples and onions, you’ll add apple cider and brown sugar. Then, you’ll return the pork, season it with salt and pepper and top with some more brown sugar.


STEP THREE – PRESSURE COOK

The tenderloin will need to cook for 20 minutes on high pressure. Let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
