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!

  • 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 too if that is what you have. Any brand works.

Let’s start with a few basic tips:

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

We have also 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. 😉

Either way they come out amazingly tender and perfect served over some fluffy mashed potatoes or Instant Pot white rice.

Pork chops in your pressure cooker

  • Brown 1-2 minutes per side a bit on saute is a great way to start
  • You can whisk the tomato paste and water together & dump in, or just mix them together in the pot
  • Use broth instead of water if you wish, adds a bit more flavor (it just depends what I have on hand at the time)
  • If you don’t like mushrooms you can omit them
  • Cook on high to make them fork tender
  • Allow to naturally release pressure release to create tender pork chops for a good 2 minutes.
  • 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. 😉

  •  Turn the pressure cooker on to sauté mode, add oil and then brown the pork chops on both sides.  Turn pot off. Remove meat and deglaze the pot with 1/4 c of your broth.
  • Put meat back in. Whisk rest of broth and tomato sauce together in a bowl, pour into pot. Add in onion, mushrooms, worc. sauce.
  • Close lid and steam valve and set to pressure high for 8 minutes. (timing depends on thickness of meat)
  • Allow to naturally release steam for 2 minutes, then do a quick release. Set Instant Pot on saute again. Remove meat and set aside under foil to stay warm.
  • In a small bowl mix together half and half and cornstarch and add into the pot allowing liquid to bubble and thicken. Add garlic salt if desired, whisk together. Turn pot off and serve meat and gravy over rice!

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.
