This Maple Glazed Instant Pot Pork Roast is the perfect fall meal. Real maple syrup, sage and rosemary give it a delicious flavor and the Instant Pot makes it easy!
I am often asked which I prefer, my Instant Pot or my Crock Pot? After writing a crock pot cookbook last year, you would assume my answer would be the slow cooker. And if I had to pick just one I probably would pick the slow cooker. But that doesn’t mean I don’t love my Instant Pot! They both play an important role in my kitchen!
One of my favorite things to cook in my Instant Pot is a pork roast. It cooks it quickly and the results are a tender and juicy pork roast. For today’s Instant Pot pork roast recipe, I used an Open Nature® Pork Loin Roast that I picked up at my local Albertsons/Safeway store.
October is National Pork Month and this Instant Pot Pork Roast is the perfect way to celebrate. Open Nature® makes high quality, minimally processed products. Their pork is of the Duroc heritage breed which is well known for its high degree of marbling. That marbling makes a more tender, juicy and flavorful piece of meat. Open Nature® pork is antibiotic free, 100% vegetarian fed with no added hormones or growth promotants. And is raised crate free!
How to cook an Instant Pot Pork Roast
To prep the meat, sprinkle it with salt, pepper and dried sage leaves. Using the sauté feature on the Instant Pot, brown both sides of the roast in canola oil.
Then add a mixture of maple syrup, chicken broth, Worcestershire Sauce, spicy brown mustard, cider vinegar, garlic, dried sage and rosemary. Cook it on manual for 18 minutes on high pressure with a natural release of 8 minutes. Be sure and check the temperature of the meat. You want it to be between 145-160 degrees F. If the temperature is too low, put it back in the Instant Pot for 2-3 more minutes on high pressure and then do a quick release.
After removing the meat from the Instant Pot, add in the cornstarch mixed with chicken broth mixture and turn onto saute again and allow the mixture to come to a boil and thicken. Then use this as a gravy over the roast – so good!
Serve it with some roasted potatoes and garnish with some fresh herbs to make it pretty.
All that is left to do is slice and cover with gravy and serve!
