Do you ever have those days where you go all day, non-stop, and somehow 5 o’clock has rolled around and you have nothing planned for dinner?
I have them regularly! And because my children need to be fed, I have kind of mastered the 30-minute meal.
Today I wanted to share one of my family’s absolute favorite 30-minute meals – Instant Pot Honey Soy Pork Tenderloin.
Instant Pot Honey Soy Pork Tenderloin
This Instant Pot Honey Soy Pork Tenderloin is super easy to make!
You start by combining soy sauce, water, honey, grated ginger, minced garlic, and sesame oil in the instant pot.
You add a pork tenderloin into the sauce, close the valve to “sealed” and cook on high pressure for 7 minutes.
Let it naturally release, which takes another 7 minutes, then remove the pork.
To thicken the remaining sauce, combine 2 teaspooons of cornstarch with 2 teaspoons of water and pour it into the sauce. Set the Instant Pot to saute, and cook until thickened, about 2 minutes.
Slice the pork tenderloin and pour the sauce over the top.
I love to serve this over steamed rice, zoodles, or both!
Then garnish the top with sliced green onions and sesame seeds.
