Instructions Checklist
  • Season pork loin with salt and pepper. Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute. Heat olive oil until hot. Add pork loin and brown on each side for a total of about 5 minutes. Remove pork loin and set aside. Add balsamic vinegar to the pot and stir to deglaze, scrapping up all the browned bits.

  • Whisk 1/2 cup water and flour together in a small bowl and add to the Instant Pot®, stirring until smooth. Mix in cranberries, orange juice, 1/2 cup water, brown sugar, orange marmalade, jalapeno, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and cloves. Set pork loin on top. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; Set timer for 12 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 10 minutes. Release remaining pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

  • Remove the pork from the pot, cover with aluminum foil, and let meat rest for 5 minutes. Puree the cranberries using an immersion blender until smooth, or leave them whole if you prefer a chunky sauce.

Cook's Note:

If sauce is too thin, select the Saute button and just cook down for several minutes to thicken. Or you also can thicken by mixing together a small amount of water and cornstarch, and stirring into the sauce.

Wonderful way to make pork. The Insta Pot helps make the meat very tender and the cranberry/orange flavoring is a great combination. I might consider thickening the sauce (topping) some and perhaps adding some sugar or another sweetener. Read More

It was a wonderful combination of flavors but a little sweet for me. I am thinking of cutting way down on the brown sugar changing the clove to cinnamon and adding a Granny Smith apple cut up to the pot. Read More

Excellent and very simple recipe! Only substitute I made was to use 2 tablespoons of maple syrup instead of the brown sugar. Delicious! Read More
