Pressure Cooker Pork Loin Recipe
This Pressure Cooker Pork Loin, Stuffing & Gravy recipes is something I have been dreaming up in my head over the last year but only just got around to testing it out recently. After making different meals in my Instant Pot like BBQ Pulled Pork and Thai Peanut Chicken & Noodles, I realized that cooking meat in the electric Pressure Cooker leaves behind lots of great juices that are begging to be used up in a creative way. What better way to use that broth than with Stove Top Stuffing!
Stove Top Stuffing Pork Loin
Now if you are like so many people I know, you might be partial to homemade stuffing. I love a good homemade stuffing as much as the next guy, like this Crock Pot Cranberry Pecan Stuffing. Sometimes it just isn’t practical though, especially if you are looking for a weeknight meal to get on the table with minimal effort. That’s when Stove Top stuffing comes to the rescue.
Stove Top adds lots of great flavor with it being pre-seasoned and cooks up faster with the small bread crumbs. If you don’t have a box of Stove Top dressing on hand though, you can substitute 6 oz. of dry bread cubes and season it with some sage, garlic and any of your other favorite stuffing spices.
I have never and will never claim to be a food snob. I am in no way above a good box of salty Stove Top. In college it was my go-to side dish with my chicken breasts I would whip up. I’d pop a mug of Stove Top in the microwave and be on my merry, sodium-laden way. 😉
Instant Pot Pork Loin with Gravy
When I was dreaming up this Pressure Cooker Pork Loin, Stuffing & Gravy recipe, I envisioned just making Stove Top from the leftover pork juices and leaving it at that. After I made the pork though, I quickly realized there were extra juices begging to be turned into gravy.
Seeing my Instant Pot was already hot, I just added a little butter and flour to the bottom to make a roux and added in the extra juices. It was the perfect compliment to the juicy pork loin and savory stuffing.
How to Cook Pork Loin in Pressure Cooker
Whenever you are cooking a bigger piece of meat like a pork loin in the Instant Pot, it is always best to get a nice sear on the outside of the meat. Turn your pressure cooker to saute and add a little oil or butter until it is melted. Add the seasoned pork loin to the hot pot and brown it on both sides before adding the rest of the ingredients.
Once you get that nice caramelized outside, you can add your broth, vegetables, etc. and cook it under high pressure until it is cooked through to temp.
This dish is truly a must-try if you own an Instant Pot. With this one amazing appliance you can make this full meal deal that you are sure to make again and again as the whole family will love it.
I have received countless compliments on this recipe in Instant Pot recipe groups on Facebook groups and Pinterest. It is simple comfort food at it’s finest. Best of all it doesn’t make a bunch of dishes to clean up!
