Instant Pot Pork Teriyaki with Rice

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

We all know the best thing about an Instant Pot: opening the lid and looking at dinner.
But sometimes, you can only a piece of dinner. Where’s the side dish?
Join me, Mark Scarbrough, as I show you how to make a teriyaki pork tenderloin in the Instant Pot, as well as the rice that goes along with it.

This is a recipe from our latest cookbook: INSTANT POT BIBLE: THE NEXT GENERATION.

Here’s the recipe with some notes.

put all of this in a 5- or 6-quart Instant Pot:
1/2 cup/120 ml soy sauce
1/2 cup/120 ml unsweetened apple juice
2 tablespoons/40 grams honey
1 medium garlic clove, peeled and minced (about 1 teaspoon)
1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
2 medium scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced.

Stir well, then add 1 1/2 pounds/700 grams pork tenderloin, halved widthwise, to this sauce.

Set a 1-quart/1-liter, 6-inch-across/15-cm-across, high-sided, pressure-and-food-safe baking dish on top of the tenderloins. Add to it
1 cup/180 grams raw long-grain white rice (don’t acquire fancy)
1 1/2 cups/575 ml water (you can add vegetable broth for more heft)
1/2 to 1 teaspoon ground dried ginger
1/2 teaspoon table salt.
do not cover. Stir well and lock the lid onto the pot.

4 minutes at HIGH pressure (in an INSTANT POT only–if you’re working with any other electric pressure cooker, you’ll need to go for 5 to 6 minutes at high), followed by 10 minutes at natural release, then a fast release to acquire rid of any residual steam in the pot.

That’s it. Serve it up. Remember that the baking dish is super hot. Use hot pads or silicone baking mitts to acquire it out of the pot. Carve the tenderloin into medallions. You can boil down the sauce in the pot with the sauté setting for a bit, or you can just serve the sauce as it is (as I did).
