- boneless pork chops
- salt and pepper
- Italian seasoning
- olive oil
- chicken stock
- soy sauce
- apple cider vinegar
- Season pork chops with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.
- On saute mode, add olive oil and butter and let melt.
- Add pork chops and sear on each side for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove onto a plate.
- Add more oil to Instant Pot. Add chopped onion and garlic. Sautee, stirring often. Add mushrooms and saute until soft.
- Add 1/2 cup of chicken stock and deglaze the bottom of the pot. This makes sure the flavor is in the dish and you won't get a burn message.
- Add remaining ingredients. Place pork chops in the liquid. Close the lid, set the valve to the sealing position. Press the manual button and set the timer to 8 minutes.
- When the timer is up, press the "cancel/off" button and let the pressure release naturally, meaning do not switch the valve.
- Remove pork chops onto a plate.
- Press saute setting on your Instant Pot. Mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Add to liquid in the pot and cook until thickened. Place pork chops back into the gravy. Let the dish cool for 5 to 10 minutes, then serve.
If you are searing the chops before pressure cooking, you only need to cook them for 8 to 9 minutes. ALWAYS let the pressure release naturally when cooking meat, for the best results. Otherwise, your meat can be tough and dry.
Can I use bone-in pork chops in this recipe?
Yes! You can use center-cut pork chops with bone, but increase the cooking time to 17 minutes.
We loved these smothered pork chops with mashed potatoes and roasted broccoli. Perfect weekend dinner for a whole family! You can serve them with wide egg noodles, fluffy rice or mashed cauliflower for a low carb version!
