Set Instant Pot to Sauté (normal/medium heat). Add the olive oil to the pot and swirl to coat.
Place the pork tenderloin directly into the bottom of the pot and cook, undisturbed, for 2-3 minutes. Cook all sides, repeating the process. Remove the pork tenderloin to a plate and set aside.
Add the onion to the pot and mix well. If necessary, deglaze the pan with a splash of dry white wine and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until onions start to soften.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together the garlic, chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, apple jelly, Italian seasoning, fresh minced rosemary, and salt. Add the garlic mixture and the apples to the onions and mix well to combine.
Transfer the pork tenderloin(s) back into the pot and securely lock the lid in place. Set the steam release knob to the sealing position and cancel the sauté function.
Select the Manual (Pressure Cooker) function and adjust the pressure to HIGH pressure (default). Set the timer to 7 minutes.
When the cook time is complete, turn the Instant Pot off and allow the pressure to release naturally for 8-10 minutes. Carefully remove the lid. Transfer the pork tenderloin to a clean plate to rest while you prepare the sauce.
For the Glaze
Turn the Instant Pot to sauté. In a small bowl whisk together the honey, water, and cornstarch. Whisk into the Instant Pot with the remaining broth and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, or until thickened. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Slice pork tenderloin into medallions and drizzle with the prepared glaze. Enjoy!
I used two pork tenderloins in this recipe, each approximately 1.10 pounds. An exact measurement isn't imperative.
