Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 7 minutes
Total Time 17 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 lb pork tenderloin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch


  2. Place trivet in the Instant Pot and add chicken broth and balsamic vinegar.
  3. Trim silver skin from the side of the tenderloin. Cut in half and place on the trivet in the Instant Pot or pressure cooker.
  4. In a small bowl, combine garlic powder, parsley, seasoning salt, onion powder and black pepper. Sprinkle half over tenderloin in Instant Pot. Flip and sprinkle remaining seasoning over top.
  5. Place lid on Instant Pot and turn the valve to sealing. Select Manual, high pressure (the default), and set timer to 7 minutes for fresh pork (10 minutes for partially frozen, or 13 minutes for frozen).
  6. When the cook time is done, turn the Instant Pot off and let pressure release naturally for 8-10 minutes. Open the lid and remove the trivet with the pork on it and let rest for 5-10 minutes while you make the glaze. Do not drain the liquid.
  8. Turn the Instant Pot to saute and add the honey and ketchup. Stir together the water and corn starch and whisk into the Instant Pot. Let simmer for 2-3 minutes until thick and bubbly. Taste and adjust seasoning or sweetness to taste.
  9. Slice tenderloin and serve with glaze as desired.
