Have dinner on the table in just over 30 minutes with this non-traditional pork tenderloin recipe. Slightly sweet, slightly salty, and always tender. I've used low-sodium soy sauce, as regular soy sauce would be extremely salty.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place pork tenderloin into the bottom of a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Combine 3/4 cup chicken broth, soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, onion powder, and sesame oil in a small bowl; stir to combine. Pour marinade over the tenderloin and turn to coat.

  • Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 3 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Immediately remove pork tenderloin to a warm plate. (The pork will not be completely cooked at this stage.)

  • Stir together 2 tablespoons of chicken broth and cornstarch in a bowl to make a slurry. Select Saute function (medium) and add slurry to liquid in the pot. Cook, stirring constantly, until liquid thickens. Cancel Saute function.

  • Slice pork thinly, place in the pot, and allow the residual heat to complete the cooking process, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove pork to a serving dish and sprinkle with green onion and sesame seeds.
