 Both components of this dish are made using the instant pot for a quick and delicious weeknight meal that is fancy enough to be served to weekend guests. 

Pork Loin Roast and Apple Chutney

Welcome to Multi Cooker Monday.........
Multi Cooker Monday is the brainchild of my friend Sue of Palatable Pastime.  She invites us each month to join her in sharing recipes using small kitchen appliances.  Today I am sharing an Instant Pot recipe.  I love my Instant Pot.

Apple Chutney

This recipe makes much more chutney than is needed, even after halving the recipe as written, for the roast but it keeps well in the refrigerator and has been gracing our table with almost every meat we have served. I have also enjoyed it on toast in the morning.

Pork Loin Roast

I find that using an Instant Pot for pork roast not only saves time but also ensures tender, juicy results. I found this recipe on the Instant Pot Website under recipes.  I, of course, adapted it to our tastes and the availability of ingredients.
