We love pork tenderloin because it's a lean cut of meat that can feed a crowd without hours of cook time. This Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin recipe comes together in just 30 minutes. The pork is cooked in a citrusy sauce flavored with orange and lemon juice and garlic and will taste great served over just about any starchy side dish.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Select SAUTÉ setting on a programmable pressure multicooker (such as Instant Pot). (Times, instructions, and settings may vary according to cooker brand or model.) Select HIGH temperature setting, and allow to preheat 2 to 3 minutes. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in cooker. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper; add pork to cooker, and cook until browned on 1 side, about 5 minutes. Remove pork from cooker. Add garlic to cooker; sprinkle with flour, and stir. Stir in stock, orange juice, lemon juice, and honey. Return pork to cooker. Press CANCEL.

  • Cover cooker with lid, and lock in place. Turn steam release handle to SEALING position. Select MANUAL/PRESSURE COOK setting. Select HIGH pressure for 3 minutes. (It will take 10 to 15 minutes for cooker to come up to pressure before cooking begins.)

  • Carefully turn steam release handle to VENTING position, and let steam fully escape (float valve will drop). (This will take 2 to 3 minutes.) Remove lid from cooker. Transfer pork to a serving platter. Add remaining 3 tablespoons butter to cooker; stir to melt. Stir in parsley. Slice pork, and drizzle with sauce.
