Pork Tenderloin with Rosemary White Wine Sauce

This Pork Tenderloin with Rosemary White Wine Sauce is absolutely the best pork tenderloin recipe I've ever made. The tenderloin is cooked in the Instant Pot, then sliced thin, topped with a delicious white wine, garlic, mushroom and herb sauce. This pork is easy enough for any night, but also a company worthy dinner dish! Let me be the first to tell you that I am not a pork tenderloin fan, at least I wasn't until this recipe! It is absolutely delicious! Make it with me! 

This is an Instant Pot recipe! I love my Instant Pot and I use it for everything. You can adapt it for a crock pot, and I have the conversion listed in the types below. I prefer the Instant Pot method because this recipe is ready in under 2 hours. You can't beat that! We all get sick of chicken at times, at least I do. This way, the Instant Pot makes cooking a tenderloin just as easy as cooking chicken. The Instant Pot method keeps this recipe moist, tender, and juicy! I highly recommend using it! 

For the sauce, I have used multiple dry white wines and they have all tasted fabulous. I don't know anything about wine, I've never drank it plain, and I am not educated in the different flavors. I have used what the liquor store employees recommend both times, and they have both been fine! I have used one came from a bottle, and one that came from a box. If you are a wine connoisseur, you will know more than me, and you can use the best wine for this recipe. The names that I have tried are listed in the tips below!

This dish would be delicious served with creamy mashed potatoes. It also would be amazing over pasta, or even with a green vegetable. This recipe really is a show stopped. It's perfect for dinner for the family, or if you have dinner guests. This would also be a great recipe for a stay in date night! 

I have tweaked and changed this recipe several times before I perfected it. Though I changed amounts and ingredients, this recipe is really hard to mess up. It has tasted delicious every time! So don't be intimidated by the long list of ingredients and the large instruction paragraphs. You've got this! It is simpler than it looks, and no matter what, it's going to taste amazing!

Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin with Rosemary White Wine Sauce 
Yields 6 

4-5 pound Tenderloin 
1/2 cup water 
Salt & Pepper 

Rosemary White Wine Sauce
1 cup sliced mushrooms 
2 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
2 tablespoons sage leaves, chopped 
2 cups dry white wine
1 cup chicken broth 
1/2 cup heavy cream 
Salt & Pepper 

In the Instant Pot, place the tenderloin, water, and salt and pepper. Close and set the valve to sea. Manually set the timer to 80 minutes and allow the tenderloin to cook. 

When the Instant Pot has about 20 minutes left, begin to cook the Rosemary White Wine Sauce. Over medium low heat, in deep frying pan, saute the mushrooms in the butter. Add the minced garlic, vegetable oil, fresh rosemary and sage. Next, add the white wine and chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 3-5 minutes, until the smell of the alcohol disappears. Reduce heat to low, and add the heavy cream. Let simmer until sauce thickens. If your sauce doesn't thicken up, mix 2 Tbsp. cornstarch with 2 Tbsp. water and add a bit at a time to your sauce until it thickens, or add 2 tablespoons of instant potatoes until sauce thickens. Taste sauce and add salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste.

When the pork loin is finished cooking, remove from Instant Pot. Drain the remaining liquid that is in the Instant Pot because we will return it to the pot one more time. Slice the pork loin with the grain, into 1/4 inch thick pieces. Once the pork loin is sliced, return the pieces to the Instant Pot. Pour the sauce over the tenderloin and seal the Instant Pot. Set the timer to 3 minutes and let the Instant Pot do the work. This step makes the sauce and all the flavors really incorporate well. When finished, remove from Instant Pot and serve.  

1. If you are using a smaller tenderloin, cut back the cook time in the Instant Pot. The way it is figured it 20 minutes per 1 pound. I used a 4.5 pound pork loin and rounded down to 80 minutes. 
2. For the wine, you can use any dry white wine you want. I have used a dry Sherry white wine, and a Franzia white wine. I can't think of a good substitution if you don't want to use wine. 
3. If you don't own an Instant Pot, you can also cook this recipe in a crock pot. Place the tenderloin, water, tenderloin, and salt & pepper in crock pot. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. When finished, cook up the Rosemary White Wine Sauce and pour over the top of the tenderloin. 
4. I use fresh herbs in this recipe. The flavor is bold and delicious! You can used dried, but fresh will have the strongest flavor.
