What Is Pork tenderloin?
Pork tenderloin is the muscle underneath the backbone, which is a boneless lean, tender and mild flavor cut of pork. This cut of pork is also relatively small in size, and is a thin, long round cut of pork. While it is a tender part of the meat, the struggle is that it can easily be overcooked.
Since it is easy to overcook, the plus side is that it is quick to cook, and quick to get to the right temperature which makes pork tenderloin perfect for a quick and easy weeknight meal when you have a busy household like ours.
If you are shopping for cuts of meat, pork tenderloin is also sometimes referred to as called pork fillet or Gentleman’s Cut.

You want the pork tenderloin to reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees. I have found that the cooking time of 7 minutes in the InstantPot has given me that or slightly higher each time I have cooked it this way. You will want to use a meat thermometer to make sure that your pork tenderloin has reached the fully cook temperature of 145 degrees or more.
