  • one 300 g/10 oz pork tenderloin
  • 1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ginger finely chopped or grated on a box grater
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

After cooking

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch


  • sesame seeds
  • green onion


  • Stir together all the sauce ingredients in the base of your Instant Pot.
  • Add the pork tenderloin, and close the valve to 'sealed'. Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes, then allow the pressure to naturally release for 7 minutes. If there is any pressure remaining, release it.
  • Remove the pork tenderloin from the Instant Pot and set aside to rest.
  • Stir together the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of cold water, then add to the sauce in the Instant Pot. Press the sautee button and allow to cook, stirring frequently, until thickened.
  • Using oven mitts, remove the pot from the Instant Pot and set aside so your sauce doesn't burn.
  • Serve with rice and veggies, spoon the sauce over everything.


For larger pork tenderloin, add 1-2 minutes of cook time.
