How to Prep Keto Pork Loin and Gravy
If you want to save yourself some time and stress on cooking day, then prep this Keto pork loin ahead of time! One of the beauties of the 5 Dinners 1 Hour meal plans is that the recipes are meant to be prepped ahead of time, saving you time in the kitchen every night and giving you sanity at dinner time!
To begin prepping, first cut the pork loin in 3 chunks. For bigger roasts, cut into even more chunks. Tougher cuts of meats, like roasts, cook much better in the Instant Pot when cut into smaller chunks. This will save you from having to cook it for an hour and a half!
Secondly, it’s time to season the Keto pork loin. Season with salt and pepper, dijon mustard, garlic, oregano, rosemary, and thyme. Add the roast to a large zipper bag if prepping ahead of time.
After that, get those veggies cut up. Chop up the celery and jicama, then add to a separate zipper bag, along with the celery, carrots, and onion.
What is Jicama?
Jicama is a dense root vegetable, which is sometimes referred to as Mexican potato or Mexican turnip, is found in Central America. It has a rough brown skin, with a white, juicy flesh on the inside. For the keto diet especially, it is a great alternative to potatoes, with a starchy, yet sweet taste.
Jicama can be a little intimidating to cut up if you have never done it before, but think of it as a big potato. Start by peeling of the skin with a potato peeler, then cut into small chunks.
How to Cook Keto Pork Loin and Gravy
Once it’s time to cook the keto pork loin, add the butter to the Instant Pot and set to saute on high. Sear the pork loin for about 3 minutes on both sides.
Secondly, add the prepped vegetables, beef broth, and Worcestershire sauce. To get that keto pork loin cooking, set the IP to high pressure for 30 minutes. When it is done cooking, use the quick release to manually release the pressure.
Now you’re almost there! In order to make the gravy for the keto pork loin, add xanthan gum to the liquid in the IP and stir until incorporated. Press the saute button and let it simmer just until thickened.
Keto pork loin is the perfect low carb dinner to break out that Instant Pot! Go to the end of this post to print the recipe and give it a try!
