Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Oh SO good! All. Of. It. Now, this is a meal I would eat often! I served with a Caesar salad…

Hubs isn’t the biggest fan of teriyaki. But, now that we know the IP turns out perfect tenderloin, I can experiment with tenderloin further (John normally makes the tenderloin on the stovetop).

Using coco aminos seriously cuts the saltiness normally expected with teriyaki sauce. 😋

NOTE: This is kind of a *dirty* Paleo & Whole30 recipe as sesame oil should be used very sparingly on these eating plans, but it is allowed.

Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin Recipe

  • Select SAUTÉ – NORMAL on your Instant Pot (IP).
  • Once the IP reads HOT, add 1 rounded Tbsp coconut oil to inner pot and wait for it to melt.
  • Add 1 lb pork tenderloin, searing 2 mins per side on 3 sides, then select CANCEL.
  • Turn tenderloin onto 4th side then pour 2/3 cup pineapple juice, 1/2 cup coco aminos, 1 Tbsp sesame oil, and 1 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar over tenderloin, then sprinkle w/ 1 tsp ground ginger.
  • Turn tenderloin in 1 full circle, landing again on the fourth side.
  • Close the lid and select PRESSURE COOK (or MANUAL) 8 mins.
  • When the cooking cycle ends, allow a 3 min natural release then do a quick release.
  • When pressure pin drops, open IP and transfer tenderloin to a large cutting board and allow to rest until the internal temperature reaches 145 F.
  • While tenderloin is resting, make a slurry by adding to a small bowl 1 Tbsp arrowroot and 1 Tbsp cold water, whisking together until smooth.
  • Select SAUTÉ – NORMAL then add slurry to juices in the inner pot, whisking continuously until thickened.
  • Plate tenderloin then pour sauce over top. We like to slice our into medallions, plate, then pour.
