  • Season pork tenderloin with Greek seasoning, salt, and pepper. Add to the preheated pot and cook until browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Pour apple juice into the pot; scrape up any pork bits left on the bottom. Set rack inside the pot and place tenderloin on the rack.

  • Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 10 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method for 10 minutes according to manufacturer's instructions. Quick-release any remaining pressure. Unlock and remove the lid. Lift out tenderloin and set aside to rest for 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, remove 1/4 cup of the liquid from the pot and mix with cornstarch to make a slurry. Pour slurry back into the pot. Select Saute function and simmer sauce until thickened, about 5 minutes. Slice pork and drizzle sauce on top.

Cook's Note:

Substitute chicken stock or root beer for the apple juice if preferred.

I made this with a pork roast that was a little less than 2lbs. and used a recipe from this sight for the Greek seasoning. The flavors were delicious. I didn t cook it quite long enough in the instant pot so had to finish it off in the oven which I think was the reason the pork wasn t as tender as I had hoped. I am still getting use to my instant pot. I will definitely try this again. I did make this again and have increased my rating to 5 stars. I used apple juice because I had it and we love the flavors. This time I trusted my Instant Pot and followed the directions and it was tender and delicious. Read More

I was lucky and it cooked to 140 degrees and came up to 145 after resting. As suggested I used chicken stock which made for a great gravy. A good sear is important for flavor. Read More

This was fantastic! I used a wild boar tenderloin and followed all the steps. The Greek seasoning I used I made following a recipe from this site. The flavors were amazing and the instant pot made it all so easy! Read More

WOW, easily the best pork tenderloin I have ever had! It is so tender you can cut it with a fork. I was skeptical of the apple juice, I was afraid it would be too sweet, but, happily I was wrong. Read More

Was just the right doneness. I should have browned it a bit more, but otherwise was a hit. Read More

This was okay the sauce was delicious! I used chicken stock as recommended in the notes. Check the temperature of the pork after removing it from the instant pot. The temperature should be 145F and might need additional cooking time like mine did. If you need to cook the pork linger add it back to the instant pot for 5-8 minutes of pressure cooking then release the pressure quickly check temperature & repeat if necessary. Read More
