Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Turn on an 8-quart multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®), select Saute function, and allow to preheat.

  • Combine paprika, salt, ground ginger, and white pepper in a small bowl. Rub tenderloins on all sides with the mixture.

  • Combine chicken broth, soy sauce, and rice vinegar in a separate bowl; you should have 2 cups, the recommended amount of cooking liquid in an 8-quart pot. Check your owner's manual for recommended liquid amount for other sizes and adjust accordingly.

  • Pour avocado oil into the Instant Pot® and heat until shimmering. Add tenderloins to brown, about 2 minutes per side. Remove tenderloins to a plate, add liquid mixture to the pot, and scrape the browned bits from the bottom of the pot, stirring all together. Turn off Saute function.

  • Place a rack or trivet into the Instant Pot® and place tenderloins on the rack. Close and lock the lid and set vent to Sealing. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 1 minute. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Let pork cook until internal temperature reaches 135 to 140 degrees F (57 to 60 degrees C). Place tenderloins on a cutting board and cover with foil to rest while you make the glaze. Internal temperature should rise to 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Remove about 3 tablespoons of cooking liquid and set aside.

  • Select Saute function and bring remaining cooking liquid in the pot to a boil. Allow to reduce to about 1 cup, 3 to 10 minutes, depending on how much liquid was used for the size of the pot. Add preserves, sambal oelek, grated ginger, garlic, and sesame oil; cook for about 2 minutes.

  • Create a slurry of the reserved 3 tablespoons cooking liquid and cornstarch in a small bowl. Continue cooking on the Saute function and add the slurry, stirring constantly until the liquid comes to a boil and thickens slightly. Pour glaze carefully into a container.

  • Slice the pork, drizzle with glaze, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and garnish with cilantro. Serve warm with additional glaze for dipping, if desired.

Cook's Note:

You can use any vegetable oil you like. You can use coconut aminos instead of soy sauce, and arrowroot instead of cornstarch.

This was a nice change for the family. We love pork tenderloin but tend to fix it the same way every time. This was easy and the pork was super tender! Read More
