Sweet Balsamic Pork Roast in the Instant Pot

How to make a pork roast in an electric pressure cooker - This sweet balsamic pork loin or shoulder in the Instant Pot is so simple and easy but so delicious! It is good for Whole 30, low carb, and keto if you substitute the sugar for Splenda or stevia. Can be made boneless or with the bone. Balsamic vinegar makes perfect gravy.

We have gotten into a bit of a recipe rut lately. We have so many recipes at our disposal (over 350 on my blog!), but because I eat a bariatric diet with almost no carbs, our options are pretty limited. It's always 4 ounces of a protein and 4 ounces of a vegetable.

We made up a recipe binder months and months ago with our favorite bariatric-friendly recipes listed out in dividers by type of meat, and that does help because either Joe or I can page through our favorites and pick something that we haven't had in a while.

Even the recipes in the binder were feeling a little stale, so Joe was searching around on the internet and found something that inspired him to make a balsamic vinegar gravy, which he put on top of a pork roast.

We love pork, but it's a little high in calories for me, and we don't eat it too often.

I love this recipe. I can't say what it is about the pork that always comes out so well, but the combination of the balsamic glaze and the flavor of the pork are just out of this world.

When Joe makes this, I happily eat it for several days and scrimp on foods at other meals to make up the calories. It's worth the sacrifice.
