  • 1-1/2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-1/2 TBS any taco seasoning blend
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin trimmed and cut into 1-1/2-inch cubes
  • 1-1/2 cups chicken broth
  • Zest and juice from 1 orange
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup uncooked basmati or jasmine white rice
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 2 to 4 TBS chopped fresh cilantro leaves to your taste


  • Select the sauté option on your Instant Pot. Add the olive oil to the pot along with the taco seasoning. Allow the seasoning to bloom and become fragrant as the oil heats up.
  • As soon as the oil is hot, add half the pork pieces. Brown the pork on all sides, remove it to a plate and repeat until all the pork cubes are just browned on the exterior, not cooked through.
  • Pour the chicken broth into the pot. Stir in the orange zest, orange juice, and garlic. Add the rice, beans, seared pork, and stir to combine.
  • Lock the lid of the Instant Pot in place. Select the high pressure setting for 12 minutes so that the Instant Pot can come to full pressure.
  • At the 12-minute mark, select cancel and then set the pressure valve to venting to quick-release the pressure. Make sure all of the pressure and steam are released before opening the pot.
  • Once the pressure is released, open the pot and stir in the lime zest and juice. Ladle the pork, rice, and beans into a serving bowl and top generously with the cilantro.
  • You can serve this with some toppings on the side. Ideas for toppings include salsa, shredded cheese, jalapeño pepper slices, sour cream, and avocado slices. This is perfect with some crusty bread slices and a glass of cold cervesa (beer).
