Instant Pot Thai Sweet Chili Pork

Hello and welcome to Sunday Supper! Today’s Instant Pot Thai Sweet Chili Pork utilizes a pressure cooker to get tender pork loin in quick time. I am serving this Sweet Chili Pork over rice, but it would be great on a baguette or rolls as a sandwich too. Everything comes together really simply and takes only 20 minutes of pressure cooking, with another 20 minutes of steam release. Then a quick reduction on the sauté function of your Instant Pot and that’s it. Mostly hands off, this dish is sweet and mildly spicy, finished with the fresh flavors of sliced scallions and cilantro. Let’s get right to it!

Thai Sweet Chili Braise

The backbone of the braising sauce for this recipe is Hoisin sauce. Otherwise, we have Thai sweet chili sauce, lime juice, an onion, garlic and fresh ginger, rice vinegar, soy sauce, mushrooms and a sweet red pepper.

Place the 2 pounds of pork loin in the bowl of the Instant Pot. Toss the onions, mushrooms and red pepper on top. Then pour the braising sauce over the top.

Place the bowl in the Instant Pot, cover and lock the lid. Adjust the settings to pressure cook on high and set the timer for 20 minutes.

At the end of 20 minutes pressure cooking, let the pot release the steam naturally, for 20 minutes. Then, transfer the pork loin to a cutting board and slice the loins into chunks.

Add the cut pork loin back to the sweet chili braising liquid and set the Instant Pot to the sauté setting. Let the sauce come up to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes. Shut off the pot and that’s it!

Use a slotted spoon to serve over rice or to top a roll for a sandwich. Then use a regular spoon to spoon braising liquid over the pork and veggies.

Garnish with sliced scallions, lime wedges, fresh cilantro leaves and chopped peanuts. For extra heat, drizzle on Sriracha (if you can even find any at the store – the Sriracha shortage is real!).

    I can’t even begin to tell you what reading that recipe did to me. It is just perfect for a Sunday supper, or any supper. So many wonderful, but simple ingredients that combine to make a memorable meal. I even have everything in the house, so I don’t need to go to the store. The virus has passed; I slept until noon yesterday and apparently it was what I needed. I made bread and hamburger buns for the freezer, since I was running low. Today I get to start “Wednesday.” Yesterday evening we were distracted by “Bullet Train”. I don’t remember if you had that in the Pizza And A Movie archives, but it seemed like one you would like and recommend. The acting is phenomenal and it’s so funny. We were laughing so hard that we need to watch it again, because we probably missed some great lines. With five assassins on a train, things are going to get dicey, and hilarious. I’m not especially a fan of Brad Pitt, but he was excellent in this one. Lots of action sequences. The director was involved in John Wick, so there are fists and feet flying everywhere, ot to mention bullets. Aaron Taylor Johnson, and Brian Tyree Henry are especially hilarious as Tangerine and Lemon. The writing is crisp and funny. The entire cast is wonderful, and we will finish watching today. We watched the first half last night and had to stop because the birds only give us an hour to watch anything before they start screaming. Spoiled little devils! Happy sunny Sunday to Kelly, Alex, Terry and the pups. It’s a gorgeous but chilly day here. Have a great one.

      Hi Mari, I am so glad you’re feeling better! Bullet Train is on my list and will likely be on Pizza and a Movie soon. I know this recipe will be hit with you and your family. Have a great week! xo Kelly

    This looks so good, however I don’t have an instapot so do you think a crockpot or braise it in the oven would be best for making this.
    Have a great day we are wet again today and tomorrow then dry ❤️🤗 mom

      Hi Mom, you can slow cook this in a Crock Pot, figure 5-8 hours on high, depending on the thickness of the pork tenderloins. I hope you have a dry day today! xo Kelly

    My family gets together every week for Sunday supper. Everyone loves when it’s my turn to host as I usually have one of your recipes on the table. This recipe sounds perfect.
    I don’t have an instant pot. Would this work in a crockpot? Thanks, Roberta
