Are you ready for another delicious and quick pressure cooker recipe? Today I used my new Power Pressure Cooker XL to make this delicious Asian Style BBQ pork tenderloin.
This was super delicious and the sauce hit all the right notes! I used a thawed pork tenderloin and an onion, a few carrots and some celery. But the secret is in the sauce! I used some Hoisin sauce and honey and soy along with garlic and ginger. Mixed that all up and poured it into the cooker along with the tenderloin and veggies. I cooked this for 25 minutes on the meat setting and allowed it to naturally release.
This meat was super tender and easy to slice. I made some rice on the side and we enjoyed this with the veggies and that delicious sauce! I think next time I will add some pineapple chunks after it is cooked and just let them heat through. That would make a lovely addition as well as a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds and maybe a drizzle of sesame oil. Truthfully, you could take this as far as you like. No matter what you choose this is going to be delicious!
Cheaper, faster and healthier than take out and you have it in just about the same amount of time as if you had called it in for delivery or pick up! The sauce is delicious and rich and flavorful. I served mine sliced but you could easily shred this and serve it mu shu style in little flour tortillas or rice pancakes that you pick up from the grocery. Add some sliced green onion, shredded fresh carrot and bean sprouts for a delicious Asian style taco night!
I hope you give this Asian style BBQ pork tenderloin a try in your pressure cooker some time soon and I hope you love it!

Asian Style Pork Tenderloin
1 package plain pork tenderloin
1 medium onion, sliced
2 carrots, sliced
2 stalks celery, cut into chunks
½ cup Hoisin sauce
¼ cup honey
¼ cup soy sauce
3 -4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon ginger paste
Step by Step Instructions
NOTE: I am using a 6 quart Power Pressure XL pressure cooker. This machine has designated presets for certain types of foods. Please consult the owner’s manual for your brand of machine should you have one that is different from mine.
Place all ingredients into the vessel of the pressure cooker and give them a toss being sure to coat the meat well.
Place the lid on the pressure cooker and adjust the valve to pressure.
Set the machine to the meat setting and cook for 25 minutes.
Allow the pressure cooker to have a natural release instead of a quick release. This will ensure that the meat is very tender.
When the cooker has come down off of pressure and you can remove the lid, allow the tenderloin to sit for five minutes before serving to avoid anyone scorching their mouth on the very hot dish.
I served mine with steamed rice, but this would be equally as delicious with quinoa, lo mein noodles or even pasta.
