This 21 Day Fix Instant Pot Balsamic Pork Tenderloin is the perfect weeknight dinner. So quick and easy to throw together with pantry ingredients and some veggies on the side!

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup of chicken broth or stock

  • 1 T honey or maple syrup
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 T rice or arrowroot flour (can sub thickener of choice)
  • Optional: 2 cups of baby carrots and 2 cups of cubed red potatoes


  1. Set Instant Pot to saute. When it’s displays the word hot, add 2 tsp of olive 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 and pepper. **If adding the optional potatoes and carrots, place trivet on top of pork, the add carrots and cubed potatoes to the pot.
  2. Mix broth, balsamic and honey together and pour over pork (and over veggies if using). Place and lock lid on the IP, and set to manual/high pressure for 5 minutes.
