Instant Pot Pulled Pork Tenderloin
The tenderloin makes for some tender, lean, and economical pulled pork barbecue! In peach season, I like to use this easy barbecue sauce to minimize added sugar. This pork barbecue is delicious served with homemade cole slaw, or sweet potatoes, steamed broccoli and a simple salad, if desired. It also keeps well for a few days and freezes well.
- 2 pork tenderloins (about 2.5 pounds total)
- 2 T. chili powder
- 1 t. garlic powder
- 1 t. kosher salt
- 1 T. apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup homemade barbecue sauce (or G Hughes Sugar Free BBQ Sauce, Original)
- Cut each pork loin in half to fit better in the Instant Pot (you will have 4 pieces). Sprinkle pork with spices and salt. Pour water and vinegar into bottom of Instant Pot insert. Place pork pieces into liquid; do not stir. Select manual setting with high pressure on Instant Pot and set time to 32 minutes.
- When timer is done, wait to allow Instant Pot to naturally release pressure for 10 minutes. Then carefully release remaining pressure and then remove lid. Using a slotted spoon, remove pieces of meat to a platter and pull apart with a fork. Stir in barbecue sauce.
One serving contains about 5 grams of carbohydrates if storebought barbecue sauce is used, which can be decreased further by using a lower sugar or sugar free option.
