Instant Pot Pork Tenderloin and Coleslaw Sandwich

Pork tenderloin is something I always have in the freezer, Its one of those things that if I feel like experimenting its the perfect vessel. or if I’m not in the mood for that then I have a ton of recipes that are sure fire to have a awesome dinner.

What I love about making a pork tenderloin is the day I make it I can have sandwiches, the next day I could stuff a enormous baked potato and then for breakfast the third day I can have breakfast tacos. So versatile. Or I can cook it and freeze it . I love food that gives me options.
