Pork meat is a high-quality protein that is easy to cook in the Instant Pot. This cooking method is trendy because it cooks fast while infusing flavor. Cooking with beer is a great idea too. Beer keeps the Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin moist and adds a tasty flavor also. The spices we used are bay leaves, thyme, and oregano. Plus dried, roasted garlic and chicken bouillon.

For the Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin, we are using two and a half pounds of fresh pork tenderloin.

Cook once, and enjoy the Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin in three different meals!

You do not have to slave in the kitchen when you have the right cooking tools. The instant pot makes it easy to cook at home.

We cooked once and served three different pork dishes.

Pork tenderloin is versatile and a delicious protein to feed the whole family. Plus, it is easy to find and budget-friendly. It cooks fast and mixes well with almost any spice and marinade that fits your taste.

Due to pork’s versatility, we can serve it in different ways. The first meal we made is a pork tenderloin Easter dinner. The beer pork has a side of mashed potatoes and buttery peas—a perfect dining option with all the fixings. Just warm some dinner rolls and fix some iced tea. Dinner is served!

Sliced Pork Tenderloin Salad with purple cauliflower, sprout nests, purple onions, sprouted grains, and baby kale. Served with a homemade honey mustard dressing.

Then following day, we can serve a Sliced Pork Tenderloin Salad with purple cauliflower, fresh baby kale, sprouts, and purple onions. The salad we paired with a honey mustard dressing too. This dressing is simple, just add the mustard of your choice, rice vinegar, a little honey, and your preferred seasoning. Mix all together and serve family style.

The third option is Mole Pork Tenderloin Sliders. We used a homemade mole poblano gifted by a friend that traveled to Puebla. Any mole works even green pepita mole if desired. The bread is a sweet Hawaiian slider. The sliders have chopped roasted peanuts and a side of pickled onions. If you prefer a gluten-free option, shred the pork loin, combine with the mole and make tacos using corn tortillas.

Tips for cooking the best Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin

  • Choose a pork tenderloin with deep pink color.
  • Season the pork tenderloin with cooking oil, powdered chicken bouillon, roasted garlic, thyme, oregano, and bay leaves.
  • Sear the pork loin in a skillet before cooking in the Instant Pot, giving a beautiful brown color.
  • Otherwise, after the pork tenderloin cooks in the IP, take it out and broil or torch for a few minutes to achieve the browning effect.
  • Use gold beer, one complete can, or bottle. The beer provides flavor and moisture, and there is no need to use water.
  • Save the jus and use it to serve the pork loin or make a gravy sauce with it.
  • Set the IP in high, and cook the pork loin for fifteen minutes, do a rapid release, and let the pork rest for three minutes before slicing.
