Instant Pot Turkey Tenderloin with Mushroom Gravy is the perfect comfort food dinner recipe you can enjoy year-round and in under an hour. Don’t forget the mashed potatoes!
I love a good turkey dinner. The problem is, like most American's, we reserve turkey for the holidays.
We (or at least I) forget and neglect turkey all year round. Fear no more, my recipe for Instant Pot Turkey Tenderloin with Mushroom Gravy will have you enjoying this lean white meat all year round.
The creamy mushroom gravy gives this a yearlong flavor versus traditional turkey gravy that we typically reserve for the holidays.
If you're planning to cook turkey tenderloins with gravy in the Instant Pot here are a few of the kitchen items you will need.
The turkey tenderloins I cooked for this recipe were three individual tenderloins and weighed 1.25 lbs total.
I seared them for about 3 minutes on each side allowing them too have a nice golden brown crust. Then, I cooked them on the "meat" setting for 5 minutes.
Once the turkey tenderloins were done, I let the Instant Pot come to natural pressure for at least 5 minutes. Then, I carefully forced the remaining pressure.
A question I get all the time "can you overcook meat in the pressure cooker"? The answer is YES!
I've done extensive testing on all my pressure cooker/Instant Pot recipes in hopes that no one will have to endure eating overcooked meat!
It's always better to under cook and have to add a few more minutes of cooking time then overcook and have dried out meat.
No need to wait for the holidays any longer. If you're craving turkey or heck, maybe you want to make this Instant Pot Turkey Tenderloin with Mushroom Gravy for the holidays.
I hope you'll give this recipe a try!
