These easy pork tenderloin Instant Pot recipes are perfect for busy days. They are delicious and taste like they took hours but they are done in no time.
When I find myself not wanting to cook dinner it’s usually because we’ve been eating the same things over and over. It’s nice to have some good standby meals that you always have the ingredients on hand for but mixing it up keeps things from getting boring.
There is also something to be said about eating a variety of foods when it comes to our health. It can help us make sure we are getting all of the nutrients we need, as long as that variety isn’t all junk food of course.
Something we don’t eat often in this house is pork. While it’s not something you should eat all the time it can be nice from time to time. It can be very flavorful meat which works well if you try to eat more of a flexitarian diet or you just want to cut back on meat.
I like to make it with a big serving of vegetables and some kind of meatless side dish that is nice and filling. It makes the meat go further which is good for our health and budget.
Pork can be tricky to cook because it can get dry fast. A great way to avoid this is with an Instant Pot. It helps keep everything juicy and my favorite part is it saves me time.
I like to throw the ingredients in my Instant Pot and I can either go get some housework done or prepare the rest of the meal and not have to worry about the main dish.

How to Cook Frozen Pork Loin in the Instant Pot
Did you know you don’t have to thaw your meat to cook it in the Instant Pot? It’s safe and easy to cook it from frozen. I even cook whole frozen chickens in the Instant Pot.
Usually, the pre-heat time is just longer and you can cook it for the same amount of time as thawed meat. Sometimes it’s best to add a couple of minutes to be safe, that’s usually what I do.
Always be sure to check the temperature of your meat to make sure it’s cooked to the FDA’s recommended temperature. For a pork loin that is 145 degrees with 3-minute rest time.
