  • 2 pork tenderloines (about 2.5 lbs. total)
  • 2 T. chili powder
  • 1 t. garlic powder
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 T. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce (easy homemade barbecue sauce)


  1. Cut each pork loin in half to fit better in the Instant Pot. Combine pork with remaining ingredients, except barbecue sauce. Select manual setting with high pressure on Instant Pot and set time to 35 minutes. 
  2. When timer is done, wait to allow Instant Pot to naturally release pressure for 10 minutes. Then carefully release remaining pressure, remove lid and stir in barbecue sauce. Serve or keep warm.


This pork barbecue is delicious served with sweet potatoes, steamed broccoli and a simple salad, if desired. It also keeps well for a few days and freezes well.
