A mostly hands off Sunday Supper, Instant Pot Thai Sweet Chili Pork comes together very quickly. With sweet and savory Thai flavors.


  • 2 Pork Tenderloins, ~1 pound each
  • 1/2 lb. Mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 Large Yellow onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 Large Sweet Red Pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup Hoisin Sauce
  • 3/4 cup Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Soy Sauce
  • 2 tbsp. Lime Juice
  • 2-4 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp. Fresh Ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp. Rice Vinegar
  • Garnishes
  • Scallions, sliced thin
  • Cilantro Leaves
  • Chopped Roasted Unsalted Peanuts
  • Sriracha Sauce
  • Lime Wedges



In a large measuring cup, whisk together the Hoisin sauce, Thai sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, lime juice, ginger, garlic, and rice vinegar.


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.
