Cooking Tips

  • Deglaze Your Pot: It’s important to deglaze the Instant Pot after you Saute food to prevent food particles from sticking to the bottom of the pot. Add a little liquid and scrape the bottom of the pot clear. This keeps the flavor in the pot but prevents the meal from getting the Burn Notice.

Substitutions

  • Herb Medley: Replace onion and garlic with a blend of dried herbs such as thyme, rosemary, and oregano. This mix can add a robust and aromatic flavor to your tenderloin.
  • Citrus Zest and Pepper: Use lemon or orange zest along with black pepper to create a zesty and slightly tangy profile. This combination can provide a fresh and lively taste to your tenderloin.
  • Smoked Paprika and Cumin: Combine smoked paprika and ground cumin for a smoky and earthy alternative. This duo can infuse a unique and flavorful twist to your pork tenderloin.

Variations

  • Sweet Teriyaki Twist: Marinate pork in teriyaki and pineapple. Stack on rolls with teriyaki mayo, a pineapple slice, and lettuce.
  • Sizzling Sriracha Delight: Spice up pork with paprika and cumin. Top rolls with sriracha mayo, cooked pork, jalapeños, and arugula.
  • Brie and Apple Elegance: Season pork with thyme and rosemary. Slide onto rolls with Dijon, caramelized apples, and brie.

Storage & Reheating Suggestions

  • Fridge: Refrigerate leftover pork tenderloin sliders in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
  • Freeze: Freeze individually wrapped sliders in plastic wrap for up to 1-2 months.
  • Reheat: From the freezer, thaw sliders in the fridge overnight, then reheat in the oven (15-20 minutes) or use a microwave with a damp paper towel until warmed. Check pork’s internal temperature, aiming for 145°F (63°C).
