  • 4 lbs pork loin, boneless or bone-in
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth


  1. Trim fat from pork roast and cut into 4 same size chunks.
  2. Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk together. Add pork chunks to rub mix and coat well.

  3. Add 2 tbs olive oil to Instant Pot and set to sauté. Once it indicates hot, add the pork, but do not crowd.

  4. Sear on each side for about 3-5 minutes each, until golden brown. Remove pork and set aside on a plate. Repeat with remaining pork pieces, as needed.
  5. Once pork is seared and removed from pot, press cancel and add 1/2 cup chicken broth. Use a wooden spoon and deglaze the bottom of the pot. Make sure to scrape up all the bits. Then add remaining chicken broth.
  6. Place pork chunks directly into the liquid in the pot, spacing out as best possible. Secure lid and make sure vent is set to sealing. Pressure cook/manual on high pressure for 60 minutes. Then let pressure release naturally for 20 minutes or until pin drops.
