If you’re looking for a few good pressure cooker pork chop recipes I’ve got some! The first one has a warm sauce drizzled over it and tender meat you can pair with just about any side, this is a great dinner idea to try. We have lots of quick and easy Instant Pot recipes on our site but sometimes the most basic dishes are overlooked and that is the case for this one….but it’s here now!

Ninja Foodi Pork Chops

  • I have used pork in a variety of ways using my multi cooker.
  • This Instant Pot pulled pork recipe tastes amazing with an Asian twist and is great on little buns as sliders.

You can use your Ninja Foodi pot or Crockpot Express too if that is what you have. Any brand works just as long as it has the saute (or brown) and high pressure function. I have several different brands and they all basically work the same way.

Let’s start with a few basic tips:

For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have and use for all recipe creations.

If you buy meat in bulk like we do at the beginning of every year you might want to try all the things. There are so many great ways to cook up different pieces of pig y’all. I mean bacon is a given and everyone knows how to cook that well. When you get to larger pieces it may get a bit confusing though. We have all the answers…..

We’ve made Instant Pot pork shoulder recipe that is so tender and perfect for sandwiches. I have forgotten to defrost it a time or two so I included instructions for frozen pork shoulder Instant Pot style too. 😉 Both turn out incredible and you are likely to not even know that one started out rock hard.

You can use our pork dry rub on any and all of the above cuts. It’s not just for pork chops as the name suggests. I have even put it on steaks when we smoke them and they turn out out of this world delish. As for sides I haven’t found one that isn’t great but typically I make fluffy mashed potatoes or Instant Pot white rice.

Pork chops in your pressure cooker

Here are a few tips you should remember when making this type of protein under high pressure. You want to keep them nice and moist and if you do these hacks you’ll be more successful along the way;

  • Brown 1-2 minutes per side a bit on saute is a great way to start
  • You should use some sort of sauce (that isn’t too thick) to cook them in. Not only does it add flavor but it will prevent them from drying out.
  • Use broth instead of water, adds a bit more flavor (it just depends what I have on hand at the time)
  • Cook on high to make them fork tender
  • Always allow for a naturally release pressure release at the end instead of a quick release, that will keep the juices and get you the most tender pork chops imaginable.
  • It is easy to make a creamy broth out of the juices left in the pot, on saute mode

This recipe incorporates a simple yet creamy sauce to cook them in so not only do they come out tender because they’re cooked under pressure but the sauce gives it an added yumminess. 😉

How long to cook pork chops in pressure cooker?

Like 10 minutes. Okay it takes maybe 10 minutes to build up to pressure so it is a bit longer than that. Think about it, that is just long enough to make your veggies and sides.

We made this with 2 sizable pork chops weighing a total of 1.45 lbs. For these 2 chops a cooking time of 8 minutes was more than enough. 12 minutes would have dried them out. But as we made them, they were tender and delicious. Next time, I would saute the onions and mushrooms in the oil before adding the stock.

What could be used to substitute for half and half? I have none and also always looking for a slightly lower calorie option ;) Thanks!

There is fat-free 1/2&1/2 but if you're like me, you probably don't have that either. I always keep several cans of evaporated milk in my pantry. It also come in fat-free. Both are a pretty good substitute.

This pork chop recipe was my first try at the Instant Pot, which I received 18 months ago! I was quite apprehensive! Comments: could only saute 2 chops at a time - oil was spattering all over. While it took 12 minutes to cook, it took another 12 for the steam to release and a mess to clean up. I am a bit disappointed but determined to try again...

Since this is your first time here are a few tips: When you press saute you can adjust the heat level, turn to low to avoid splattering. Yes every pressure cooker takes time to reach pressure and release the steam so that is not listed as it is just part of the whole process. Try my Instant Pot spaghetti which is my most popular and pretty much no fail for everyone.
