  • Instant Pot


  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • 1.5 pounds Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Fresh Pork Loin Filet
  • 1 cup frozen pearl onions
  • 1 pound baby carrots
  • 1 cup water divided
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch


  • Preheat the Instant Pot to "saute" setting.
  • When the Instant Pot reads "HOT" pour the grapeseed oil in the pot. Then using kitchen sheers, cut the Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Fresh Pork Loin Filet in half. Place the pork loin filet in the Instant Pot. Sear on all sides for 8 minutes *turning every few minutes.
  • Once the pork has a nice crust to the exterior, remove and place on a plate.
  • Add in the pearl onions, baby carrots, and ½ cup of water. Using a wooden spoon scrape the brown bits off the bottom of the Instant Pot. Mix for 1 minute.
  • Then place the Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Fresh Pork Loin Filets on top of the carrot/onion mixture.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot, seal and make sure the valve is set to "sealing". Cancel the "saute" then select "manual". Set the timer to 7 minutes.
  • Once the pork loin filets are done cooking let the Instant Pot naturally release for 7 minutes. Carefully, force the remaining steam out of the Instant Pot and then remove the lid.
  • Place the pork, onions, and carrots on a plate.
  • Select "saute" and let the broth come to a boil. While the broth simmers mix together the remaining ½ cup of water and cornstarch to create a slurry. Whisk in the cornstarch slurry into the Instant Pot. Whisk until gravy is thick. Turn the Instant Pot.
  • Slice the pork loin filet into 1-inch thick slices. Top with gravy and serve with carrots and onions. Enjoy immediately.


  • Pork Tenderloin - Any brand pork tenderloin will work. Just know that depending on the flavor will depend on the flavor of the vegetables and gravy. If you use a plain pork tenderloin season it with salt, pepper, and garlic powder prior to searing.
  • Serving Suggestions - Serve this meal with egg noodles or mashed potatoes. Cook while the pork and vegetables are cooking.
  • Leftover Storage - Store leftovers in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
