- 1 1/2 pound Pork Tenderloin, (trimmed of all silverskin)
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 tablespoon Napa Valley Seasoning Blend **
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 3 tablespoons water
Wash and trim the pork tenderloin of all silverskin.
Combine the garlic, Napa Valley Seasoning, chicken broth, Dijon mustard, honey and Worcestershire sauce and pour into Instant Pot. Carefully place pork tenderloin into the Instant Pot, turning to coat with the sauce.
Close lid of Instant Pot and set valve to sealing.
Press Manual and adjust the time to 30 minutes on High Pressure. If you want to shred the pork, you could add an additional 6-8 minutes to the cooking time.
ON will show in the display while the pressure is reached. This will take about 5-10 minutes.
Once the Instant Pot reaches full pressure, the display will show the 30 minutes that it was set for, and the time will begin to count down.
When the cooking time is complete, the Instant Pot will beep. At this point, allow the Instant Pot to naturally release pressure for about 5 minutes. The display will indicate how many minutes since the Instant Pot completed the cooking cycle. (if you are really in a hurry, go ahead and release pressure manually)
After the 5 minutes, release the remaining pressure by turning the setting to Venting. It is best to use tongs or a towel to do this to avoid the hot steam. Once the pin at the top of the Instant Pot has dropped, it is safe to open.
Remove the pork to a cutting board and cover with foil.
Set the mode of the Instant Pot to Sauté and let the sauce remaining in the Instant Pot come to a boil.
Combine the cornstarch and water in a small bowl, then whisk this into the sauce in the Instant Pot. Continue to whisk for about 1 – 2 minutes while the sauce thickens into a gravy. Turn Instant Pot off once this has thickened.
Slice the pork and carefully transfer to a serving dish, then spoon the thickened gravy over the pork.
** Napa Valley Seasoning Blend is a combination of Lemon, Chili, Black Pepper, Rosemary, Fennel Seed, Salt, Garlic and Sun-Dried Tomato flavoring. If you don’t have this seasoning blend, use something similar or as many of these individual flavors as possible. You can purchase from the wholespice.com or from the Amazon.
