Pressure Cooker Cuban Pork Tenderloin

This meal in a pot features Cuban style spiced pork nestled into rice and beans. A green salad on the side would round out your dinner.
Be aware that the timing could vary depending on the make and size of your electric pressure cooker. While the whole dish can be prepared in the cooker, I prefer to first brown my meat in a cast iron skillet.

1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 pork tenderloin (1 1/4 lb), trimmed, cut in 1-inch pieces
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 1/4 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup orange juice
1 1 oz package taco seasoning mix
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp ground cumin
1 15-oz can black beans, drained, rinsed
1 cup uncooked long-grain brown rice
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro leaves
chunky salsa, as desired

1. In a small cup or bowl, combine the salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Sprinkle the spice mix evenly over the cubed pork.
2. Heat the oil in a heavy skillet. Working in batches, add the pork and brown. Remove the pork to the pressure cooker insert.
3. Stir in the broth, orange juice, taco seasoning mix, garlic and cumin, mixing well. Stir in the beans and rice.
4. Secure the lid, set pressure to high, and cook 25 minutes. Unplug the pressure cooker and let stand 10 minutes before venting to release the pressure..
5. Stir in the lime juice and top with cilantro. Serve with salsa if desired.
