Instant Pot Pork Loin with Creamed Spinach and Blistered Tomatoes

Instant Pot Pork Loin with Creamed Spinach and Blistered Tomatoes

From the pages of my cookbook, The “I Love My Instant Pot” Gluten-Free Recipe Book, the humble pork loin is given a facelift with inexpensive ingredients…and the Instant Pot is that magic little appliance that will make it happen. Also, if dairy is not your gut’s friend, sub coconut milk for the heavy cream in this recipe (I like to use the upper solid part in the can and then use the liquid to get the amount needed).

This dish is a perfect example of how inexpensive ingredients can be turned into something special–and even a little sexy! Serve this meal for two by candlelight with mood music in the background, and your special friend will thank you for your excellent chef skills!
