Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin

A pig in the Instant Pot is worth two in the oven. I’ll let that sit for a minute…I think Ginny’s new nickname will be The Sweet Alchemy Woman. She finds ways of mixing together things like balsamic vinegar, ginger, brown sugar and other delicious powders/liquids to make the best glazes and sauces for our meats. This balsamic glazed pork loin is a fine example of her alchemy.

I tried cooking a pork sirloin the Instant Pot before and had mediocre results. What I learned from this experiment is that if you cook a piece of beef or pork that doesn’t have enough fat on it in a crock pot or Instant Pot, you may end up with semi-dehydrated meat. Not ideal. This pork loin had the tenderloin attached and enough fat to simmer the meat to a nice juicy finish.

The combination of balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, honey and some other choice spices gives this loin a sweet and salty deliciousness that will make your friends happy.

Don’t be afraid of fat. That is what I learned this week. Fat is an essential part of our diet that has been neglected for too long. The fat is the flavor, folks. Let it shine!

This balsamic glazed pork loin recipe is an Instant Pot and oven tag team cook, but don’t worry…it only takes 45 minutes in the Instant Pot and a few in the oven. The final glaze, which is added at the end and then broiled in the oven for a few minutes is REALLY important so make sure to do that part! You will be rewarded with shiny goodness.

PREP TIME: 15 MINUTES COOK TIME: 55 MINUTES SERVINGS: 6

INGREDIENTS

  • 5lb. whole pork loin with tenderloin attached
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne powder
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

for the glaze:

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 inches ginger, peeled and minced
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place pork loin in the Instant Pot and poke it with a skewer all over so the balsamic vinegar can seep into it. Pour the balsamic and soy sauce over it. Next pour the water on the bottom, but not over the top so you don’t wash off the balsamic and soy. Mix the spices and sprinkle them over the loin. Pressure cook for 45 minutes and then quick release.
  2. Heat the glaze ingredients in a small pan over high heat on the stove until thickened (mix the cornstarch in with the water before adding to other ingredients).
  3. Remove the pork loin from the Instant Pot, place on baking sheet and brush with half the glaze. Broil for 2-3 minutes in the oven. As it starts to bubble, remove it, and cover with the rest of the glaze. Broil for an additional 2-3 minutes. Remove, let sit for 4-5 minutes, slice and serve.

  20. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
