1. Balsamic Pork Tenderloin
This recipe is perfect if you love a tangy balsamic flavor combined with the tenderness of pork tenderloin.
- Pork tenderloins (1 or 2 pcs)
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 4 Tbsp. soy sauce (regular or low sodium)
- 2 tsp favorite herb blend (Italian recommended)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup of water
- 2 Tbsp. corn starch
- 4 Tbsp. water (cold)
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- First, rub the olive oil over your pork tenderloin(s) and then season them with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and your herb combination. Then, make sure you set your pressure cooker to sauté mode.
- Put your seasoned pork tenderloins into the pressure cooker and turn them every 1 minute until you see that all sides of the tenderloin are properly browned.
- Take your brown sugar, water, balsamic vinegar, and soy sauce, and then whisk them together until well combined. Add the mixture to your pressure cooker pot, and put the lid on; lock the lid and set the steam valve to “closed.” Cook on pressure cook/manual mode for about 25 minutes.
- Once 25 minutes has passed, let the pot natural release for 5 minutes. Then turn the steam valve into venting mode and remove the lid when the valve begins to drop. Take the pork out and set aside to cool.
- Now use the “Soup” setting on your pressure cooker until it boils. Add corn starch and cold water in a separate bowl until corn starch dissolves, and then add the thickened mixture into the instant pot. Stir until it has a glaze-like texture.
