How to Cook Frozen Pork Loin in Instant Pot
Cooking a pork loin in an Instant Pot is a quick and easy way to prepare a delicious meal! Here are some tips and steps to help you take your frozen pork loin from fridge to plate with ease:
Step 1: Prep the ingredients
Gather together the ingredients that you need to prepare your pork loin. Here are some common items used for a pork loin:
- 3-4 pound pork loin
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
- Herbs or spices of your choice (such as salt, pepper, garlic powder, thyme, oregano, etc.)
- 1 cup of chicken broth or stock
Step 2: Prepare the Instant Pot
Set up the Instant Pot according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Once the pot is set up, add the olive oil and turn on the sauté setting.
Step 3: Cooking
Add the frozen pork loin to the pot and season with your favorite herbs and spices. For this recipe, we suggest using salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, and thyme.
Step 4: Pressure Cooking
Pour the chicken broth or stock into the Instant Pot and set the pressure to high. Make sure the lid is set to sealing and adjust the timer according to the manufacturer’s instructions. When the timer goes off, carefully release the pressure and check to see if the pork is cooked through (the internal temperature should read 145° F).
Step 5: Serve and Enjoy!
Once the pork loin is cooked through, remove it from the Instant Pot and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy!
Bonus Tip: This cooking method works great for frozen pork chops as well! Just adjust the time and pressure according to the manufacturer’s instructions, or adjust as needed for your desired doneness.
