If you haven’t hopped on the Instant Pot or pressure cook train yet, then I don’t know what you are waiting for! It seriously cooks dinner so fast and makes good meals even more delicious!

Pork products are so easy and versatile! You can prepare them so many different ways (my favorite grilled pork sandwich! or oven roasted pork panini!) but they are definitely great for a quick Instant Pot Meal. I am picky about my pork products and I always buy ones that have no artificial ingredients, preservatives added steroids, or hormones.
This Instant Pot Bacon Wrapped Pork looks so fancy and impressive, but actual prep time is about 10 minutes and cook time is only 10 as well! The fresh herbs and balsamic vinegar mixture imparts so much flavor. I love how beautiful this looks once cooked and is definitely fancy enough for entertaining!

Good morning from the midwest! Oh this sounds and looks delish! Can’t wait from our fresh herbs to start popping out in our garden. So far only parsley, cilantro and chives but more to arrive soon! Thank you for this wonderful recipe! And hope you have a wonderful Easter.
Thank you Jaci! I love when the herbs in my garden start growing! We still have snow on the ground so I will be using store bought for the next couple months!!
I love bacon, YES I DO!
This sounds fantastic, I might make it for a low-key Easter. When you switch from sauté to manual pressure, do you do high pressure?
Hi Andrea! Yes, use high pressure!
I have been excited to make this and have everything ready to go. I may have bought the wrong Smithfield product as when I opened the package realized I bought a tenderloin and there are two of them. I’m not really sure if I’m to wrap them together or only cook half!
Yes Robin, I think you got the tenderloin instead of just the loin! I would only cook one!
Thank you so much! I’m excited to make this for dinner and so appreciate your answer.
That’s what we call pork on pork crime and we’re all about it! 🙂
hahahah yes!!!! love it!
I don’t have an instant pot yet. I would love to try this recipe though……slow cooker instead?
I would probably just go with an oven version if you don’t have an Instant Pot. Brown it and then put in the oven for 30-45 minutes, depending on the size! If you wanted to try slow cooker, I would say brown it and try 4 hours on low!
This sounds really good and I’d love to try it but I do have a question – what was the texture of the bacon like? I am brand new to pressure cookers (just got one last week, have only made one thing in it so far). I like my bacon pretty crisp – if it’s rubbery/chewy, it can be enough to really turn me off. Obviously the browning in the beginning is important to getting the bacon cooked thru, but I’m just unsure what the PC does as far as rendering the bacon fat and it getting crisp? Thanks!
Hi Leslie! I am the same way…I prefer my bacon cooked really crispy! You do get some crisp on the bacon during the browning process, but its definitely not super crispy. My husband and kids like their bacon softer so I let them eat the bacon off the pork, so for me, it is mostly for flavor!
What size is the pork loin in the recipe?
I think mine was 2.5 pounds!
Amanda! I made this the other day and it was SUPER yummy and moist. I don’t have an instant pot so just seared it in a pan and moved to the oven, yummy 🙂
I’m so glad you liked it and that it turned out good in the oven!
Sounds yummy. Can it be duplicated in a slow Cooker? If so can you provide time and settings.
Hello! I haven’t tried it yet, but I would brown it in a pan first before transferring to the slow cooker. I would try low for about 4 hours. Mine wasn’t very thick, so I think if yours was thicker, you would need to adjust cook time.
I am cooking a pork tenderloin (two pieces) and would like to use this recipe. Any changes to time?
I would add probably 2-4 minutes, depending on their size!
Did you use toothpicks to keep the bacon wrapped around the tenderloin? I did not and all of the bacon fell.
I did not use toothpicks, but you definitely could! I just made sure that the ends of my bacon were on the bottom of the pork.
Hi. Just curious. Did you cook it in the liquid or, did you put it on a trivet? Thanks in advance.
Just finished up with this dish.
Over all there was a lot of great elements but the rosemary came on a little too strong and the balsamic was very over powering
I think a small tweak on those 2 ingredients would be a game changer.
You could certainly decrease the amounts if you’d like! I love balsamic vinegar so I use a lot!
