A pressure cooker pork loin roast recipe that results in tender and juicy meat every time. And it's a faster cooking method than using the oven or slow cooker.
Now that I'm getting more comfortable using the electric pressure cooker, I've been using it more to make simple main dishes. I use it to quickly cook whole chicken and turkey breast.
I'll admit that I was a little intimidated to use the Instant Pot when I first bought it. Now, I have two of them. One is a 6 quart model and the other is a larger 8 quart model.
I made this pressure cooker pork loin roast recipe using the 8 quart so there was plenty of room. The great thing about having two electric pressure cookers is I can use one for the main dish and the other for the side dish.
And I'm learning that it's so much more convenient to use the Instant Pot instead of turning the oven on. Plus, the food cooks a lot quicker under pressure.
In fact, food cooks so fast that when I was just starting to learn how to use the pressure cooker, I often overcooked everything. So be sure to check out the recommended cooking times if you're a beginner.
The other thing to keep in mind is that the food cooks as the pot is building pressure and it's also cooking as the pressure is released. So the cooking time is longer than what's set in the program.
That's why when I cook things like broccoli under pressure, I'll set the cook time to zero. And, it's often best to use the low pressure setting for things like vegetables so they don't get mushy.
This pressure cooker pork loin roast recipe is one of the simplest things you can make in the pressure cooker. If you're a beginner, it's a good recipe to start with.
A lot of people will do pressure cooker hard boiled eggs. However, I prefer using an egg cooker over the pressure cooker method.
The other thing about hard boiling eggs in the pressure cooker is that the cooking times can vary depending on the brand and model. So be sure to follow directions specific to your electric pressure cooker.
For instance, I had a Cosori 2 quart pressure cooker and it took longer to hard boil eggs in that than it did in my 6 quart Instant Pot. So make sure you look at the recipes and recommended times for the pressure cooker you own.
It's hard to go wrong when making a pressure cooker pork loin roast recipe. But, if the time isn't set right, you could end up with meat that either overcooked or undercooked.
I'm certainly not an expert in pressure cooking. But I'm doing a lot better than I was last year. As with anything, the more you practice, the better you'll get.
One of the ways that I've been converting my family to a low carb lifestyle is to make more meat and vegetable dishes. The picky eaters in my family enjoy meat dishes.
I have a little harder time getting them to eat low carb vegetables. But once I figure out which ones they like, those are the ones that's I'll keep in the freezer.
Green beans are something that my husband and daughter like so I cooked some up to serve with this pressure cooker pork loin roast recipe. My daughter also likes spinach if it's cut and drowned in a cheesy sauce.
They both like cucumbers and carrots too. So I'll pick some of those up for them to snack on. However, my daughter only eats the carrots when they are cooked in a broth.
I know that carrots are higher in carbs than I like. But since it's a vegetable that my family eats, I'll buy it regularly for them. And, I'll occasionally add a small amount in my cooking.
All of my picky eaters enjoyed eating this easy Instant Pot pork loin roast. So it's a recipe that will go on our dinner rotation. It goes really well served with roasted asparagus.
I try to keep my meals simple so I don't have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. If I want a more complex dish, that's when I leave it to the cooks at a restaurant.
On rare occasions, I will try a more involved recipe. But those don't happen too often in my house. There's just not enough time to waste preparing gourmet meals.
One thing that I haven't tried yet is to cook multiple dishes in the Instant Pot. I did buy the stackable insert pans to use in the pressure cooker, but haven't used them yet.
I thought that I'd have more time to experiment with different cooking ideas once I left my engineering job. But, it turns out there's just not enough time in the day!

I was looking for a recipe using a cut of pork, a pork sirloin roast boneless. I have been using my old pressure cooker a bit more recently, it does a great job still, it's a fifty year old Mirro brand, rather heavy aluminum pot, does a great job on country style pork ribs either bone-in or boneless, 30 minutes at 5 lbs, they turn out perfect. Your recipe here calls for 25 minutes on high. My old cooker still has the original round valve that goes on top of lid, I recall directions, bring pot to a boil, then reduce heat so that valve slowly releases pressure as heat is continued, to be applied, for, here, 25 minutes. At 5 lbs, with 30 minutes, my ribs are quite nicely done. My pressure cooker as old as it is, still a great way to cook, low heat, no heating up of kitchen, and truly, I really can simply set a timer once the pot is hot, at 5lbs pressure, valve is chattering a bit, on perhaps medium low burner setting, and only come back when 30 minutes is completed.
Love the combo of spices. I can’t wait to eat. It’s got 10 min on the pressure cooker. Thank you!
Can you add a 27 oz. can of sauerkraut to this recipe, or would it change the timing?
Adding sauerkraut shouldn't change the timing.
I have a stove top pressure cooler and can not know the difference on time or pressure.
Stove top pressure cookers generally cook faster because the heat is higher so is the pressure.
This was delicious!! Thanks for the recipe!
I am about to try the pork roast,sounds great
Made this for my husband and myself for dinner. Yummy will be making again as we have lots of pork loin roasts.
I have a 3.94 lb. Pork loin roast. How long to cook?
You probably want to cook it a few minutes longer. I'd try 27-30 minutes. Or, you could try a natural pressure release for a few minutes before opening the valve to let it cook longer.
The recipe calls for 25 minutes cook time. Does that 25 minutes include the time it takes to come up to pressure? I love pork loin but as you said, time is crucial to have it come out juicy and not like shoe leather.
It does not. Depending on the size of the roast, you can try less time.
Thank you! I did finally make a 3LB pork loin roast over the weekend. I browned it on all sides, then sealed and let it come to pressure. Let it cook for 15 minutes and let it natural release for 5 minutes and tented/rest for about 10 minutes. I never had a roast come out so tender and juicy as that one was. A great recipe and I'll make it again.
What about salt? Did you not season this loin roast?
I used about 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and updated to reflect that.
Lisa, I have an 8 qt Instant Pot, and am still a novice. My manual says to ALWAYS use 18 fl oz. of liquid. In your experience, is it ok to adjust the amount of liquid called for in your recipe? I also plan on cooking a 2pound roast. Should I adjust the cooking time? I can’t wait to try your recipe! Thank you.
You do need adequate liquid to pressure cook. And 2 pounds would cook faster and you don't want to overcook it.
About how much time does it take to cook including coming up to pressure and the natural pressure release?
It's typically about 10 minutes coming to pressure and for a natural pressure release.
This is a quick, easy, great recipe! I cooked a 2.25 lb pork loin as the recipe was written, but used only 1 cup of broth. It turned out juicy and perfect! I'd suggest sauteing the minced garlic AFTER searing the roast, however, because mine burned. This roast was perfect with mashed cauli and steamed asparagus. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
Thanks for the tip on the garlic!
I have a 3.5 lb pork loin, but only a 6 quart pot...Wondering if it will work?
It should work as long as the meat fits into the pot.
Can you cook the roast from frozen?
Or is the time adjusted, if so how much?
You should be able to do that and then add additional time. It takes longer for the pressure cooker to come up to pressure if the meat is frozen so it shouldn't need too much extra time. Maybe 5-10 minutes?
I have a 4 1/2 lb pork loin. Do you know what the cook time would be for that in the pressure cooker?
I'd say about 30-35 minutes with natural pressure release.
How long would you NP release? I also have a roast a little over 4 lbs so I was going to do 33 minutes but I'm not sure how long to allow natural pressure to go.
If doing a natural pressure release, I'd recommend cutting down the cook time too. So only cook 20 minutes and do a NPR for like 10 or so.
Love the sound of this recipe, perfect for Sunday dinner!
