This 21 Day Fix Instant Pot Asian Pork Tenderloin is one of our new favorites – a fast, easy, and delicious dinner that’s FIX approved, gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo friendly.
- 1 (1.5 lb) pork tenderloin
- 1/4 cup of honey
- 1/3 cup of coconut aminos
- 1 T tomato paste
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 2 cloves of garlic minced
- 1 T finely chopped ginger
- a dash of crushed red pepper
- 2 tsp rice flour (sub arrowroot or tapioca for paleo, sub whole wheat if no other dietary restrictions)
- Mix together honey, coconut aminos, tomato paste and 1 tsp of coconut oil and whisk well. *If using an 8 quart instant pot, add 1/3 cup of water to this mixture.
- Set Instant Pot to saute. When it’s displays the word hot, add 1 tsp of coconut oil to the bottom of the pan. Saute pork tenderloin on all sides until it gets to a nice golden brown, then sprinkle thoroughly with salt.
- Add an additional tsp of coconut oil to the pan along with garlic and ginger and cook for a minute or until fragrant. Turn Instant Pot off and stir in sauce.
- Place and lock lid on the IP, and set to manual/high pressure for 5 minutes.
- When cook time is up, natural pressure release for 6 minutes, then switch to quick release.
- Remove pork from Instant Pot and let it rest for at least 3-5 minutes while you thicken the sauce. Switch pot to saute and remove 1/2 cup of the sauce from the pot and add flour to thicken. Pour the slurry back into the Instant Pot. Keep stirring until the sauce thickens, usually 1-2 minutes. Add crushed red pepper, if desired.
- Slice pork and serve over brown rice ramen, brown rice, noodles, or noodles. Add veggies and top with sauce.
This makes 4 servings – 1 RED and 1/2tsp each, plus sides!
