With this recipe, you can plan ahead and marinate the pork overnight, or for at least a couple of hours.

That way, the pork tenderloin will turn out even more tender.

Although, if you don’t have hours to wait, you can marinate the pork for 15 to 30 minutes and it will still be delish.

With the help of a pressure cooker, the meat will turn out so incredibly tender.

Plus, the Instant Pot cooks the pork with the basis of a savory gravy that literally takes only one extra minute to make.

Round out the meal with rice or potatoes and a vegetable side dish.

There are so many options of sides you can serve with and that means this dinner can be put together so quickly.

You can easily double the recipe to make two pork tenderloins at the same time in your Instant Pot.

The really nice thing is that if you happen to have leftovers you can use them in delicious pork tenderloin pita pizzas. There are so many pizzas with variations of toppings you can enjoy.

We have provided our three favorite pizzas below in the Best Uses for Leftover Pork Tenderloin section. They are inspired by Swedish pizzas with flaskfilé that you can find in any pizzeria in Sweden.

You can use pork tenderloin strips in a Quattro Stagioni, a Surf and Turf as well as a pizza with Bearnaise sauce. And that’s just a start. Feel free to try more pizza topping combinations!

How To Make Quick And Easy Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin With Gravy (Fläskfilé)

Mix well.

STEP 2: Marinate Pork

Cut the pork tenderloin in half, as shown. Trim any excess fat, if needed. Cutting the pork rather than keeping it whole allows it to cook through within the provided timing.

Place the two pork tenderloin halves into the marinade and make sure they are well coated in the seasoning.

Allow to marinate, in a covered bowl or sealed Ziplock bag in the refrigerator for fifteen minutes, ideally you can marinate for at least an hour and up to overnight.

Reserve ¼ cup of the chicken broth and add the rest (¾ cup) to the Instant Pot.

Using a wooden spoon, deglaze the pot so that no pieces are stuck to the bottom of the inner pot. This is an important step needed to avoid a Burn notification from the Instant Pot while cooking.

Add the pork tenderloin back into the Instant Pot. Fasten the lid and set the pressure valve to Sealing. Pressure cook on HIGH pressure, normal temperature, for 3 minutes.

Once the cook cycle is complete allow pressure to naturally release (NPR) from the Instant Pot (takes 10-15 minutes). Press Cancel when complete.

After the pressure has released naturally and the pressure pin has dropped completely, remove the lid.

Use a digital food thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat to ensure that the pork tenderloin has reached an internal temperature of at least 145 degrees F.

Reserve ¼ cup of the chicken broth and add the rest (¾ cup) to the Instant Pot. Using a wooden spoon, deglaze the pot so that no pieces are stuck to the bottom of the inner pot.

Pork tenderloin (aka fläskfilé) is a common pizza topping in Sweden. The meat is always so tender due to cooking in a pressure cooker. We love it in a number of pizzas, including the following:

  • Quattro Stagioni Pita Pizza — a popular pizza style, with four sections, and most often with one topping per section. We have included cold water shrimp, black olives, fresh mushrooms and pork tenderloin as our four seasons!
  • Pork Tenderloin Pita Pizza (shown below) — tender strips of pork with hot peppers, fresh mushrooms and Bearnaise sauce. It’s great even without the Bearnaise!
  • Surf and Turf Pita Pizza — cold water shrimp, pork tenderloin strips and ground beef (kottfarssas) are an interesting flavor combination of land and sea!
