  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound pork
  • ½ cup brown sugar - divided
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • teaspoon chili powder (optional)
  • cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 3 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch


  • Set the Instant Pot on the Saute setting. Add the olive oil.
  • Season the pork with salt and pepper on all sides. Add it to the Instant Pot and sear for about 1 minute on each side.
  • Add about 4 tablespoon of the brown sugar directly on the pork loin. On top of the brown sugar, sprinkle with paprika and chili powder.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining brown sugar, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar and stock. Pour the liquid mixture into the Instant Pot.
  • Close the lid and valve and set on HIGH pressure for 15 minutes, natural pressure release at the end.
  • Remove the meat from the pressure cooker. Tent with foil to keep warm. Turn the Instant Pot back to the sauté setting.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together 4TBSP of COLD water with the cornstarch to make a slurry. Whisk the slurry into the balsamic liquid. As it cooks, the cornstarch will thicken the glaze.
  • Slice the pork loin and serve hot with the balsamic vinegar glaze drizzled over the top.
