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!
Instant Pot Roast Pork
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. Pork can tend to be on the tougher side so an Instant Pot is the perfect way to get a nice, tender pork roast.
What Kind of Pork Roast Should I Use?
For today’s Instant Pot pork roast recipe, I used a Pork Loin Roast. You could also use a boneless pork shoulder roast, a butt roast or a picnic roast. A boneless roast works best.
How to cook an Instant Pot Pork Roast
- Season the meat with salt, pepper and dried sage leaves.
- Turn Instant Pot to sauté and add oil.
- Brown roast on both sides in hot oil.
- Add 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.
How Do You Know When Pork is Done?
Pork roast is done at 145 degrees F. The pork is still pink at this point and is perfectly safe to eat but if you prefer your pork a little more cooked, cook until 155-160 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. Use a meat thermometer to check the temperature.
- Remove 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!
What to Serve with Pork Roast
- Roasted potatoes
- Smashed Potatoes
- Chili Roasted Potatoes
- Skillet Potatoes
- Broccoli Crunch Salad
- Balsamic Carrots
- Grilled Asparagus
All that is left to do is slice and cover with gravy and serve!
