It’s always funny to me how we look forward to Summer break from school every single year, and I personally count the days down right along with my kiddos!  But, even when summer finally arrives we find ourselves just as busy as we are during the rest of the year.  That keeps me constantly reaching for my instant pot on a regular basis.  I love making sure we can have a nice dinner on the table even on the most hectic days.

I modeled these Instant Pot Pork Chops after my recipe for Slow Cooker Pork Chops and Gravy.  If it’s not broke, don’t fix it!  Everyone in my house loves the slow cooker pork chops so much that I wanted the Instant Pot recipe to be as similar as possible!  If you’re looking for more pork chop recipes, be sure to try out these delish Baked Pork Chops with Rice too!  If you’re an air fryer user, definitely try these Air Fryer Pork Chops they’re just amazing!

How to Make Instant Pot Pork Chops:

To make pork chops in your instant pot you will want to start with five pork chops.  This will be anywhere from 1 to 1 1/2 pounds.  You can use bone in OR bone out pork chops for this recipe.  They simply get seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder then seared on high just until browned on both sides.

The next step to making sure that your pork chops turn out successful is to remove the pork chops to a plate and deglaze your pot.  You can see in the picture below that to deglaze I have poured in 1/4 cup of beef broth, then, scraped the browned bits from the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon.  It is important to sear the chops for best flavor.  It is equally as important to deglaze so that you don’t get the dreaded “burn” warning as your pork chops cook.

Next, you will turn the instant pot off and add your pork chops back into the pot.  Along with the pork chops add in your remaining broth, seasonings, and cream of chicken soup.  I used cream of chicken with herbs, you can substitute for cream of mushroom if you prefer.

At this point, there is no need to stir!  Simply place the lid on the pot and set for 8 minutes cook time.  Keep in mind that it will take about 10 minutes for the pot to come to pressure.  Then, you will have 10 minutes of natural pressure release time after the chops are done cooking.  It is always best to natural pressure release meat for the most tender and best texture.

Once your pork chops have cooked and you have allowed them to natural release for 10 minutes you can release any remaining pressure and remove the lid from the pot.

Remove the pork chops to a serving platter and cover with foil if desired to keep them warm.  Next, you will turn your pot on to saute and add a cornstarch and water slurry.  Be sure to whisk constantly while adding the slurry.  The gravy will thicken up right away.

Serve the pork chops with the gravy and your favorite sides!  We love this over rice or mashed potatoes with a big side salad or fresh steamed green beans!

    Hey Nichole

    My wife and 6 year old daughter loved this! I made it exactly as listed yesterday, but with 4 boneless pork chops instead of 5…..they were 1” thick.. Easy. Delicious.

    BONUS, BONUS, BONUS….. I used the fabulous left-over gravy to make Poutine tonight (a real treat for folks from Philly area) and it was awesome and easy.

    Thank you for a great instant pot recipe 🙂

    This is the first instant pot recipe that has turned out amazing! it was easy to fallow and fast!! thanks so much for sharing this my hubby loved it. i am saving the left over gravy for biscuits. mmmmm.

    These turned out amazing!! I’m so glad I went ahead and tried this recipe. The only thing I changed as a personal preference was used a ‘Pork Gravy’ packet instead of ‘Brown Gravy’ because I’m not a huge brown gravy fan. Overall this made probably the best gravy ever and will use this recipe for that in the future. Boyfriend kept eating it after dinner out of the Tupperware – it’s that good!

    I have a family of picky eaters and everyone of them LOVED it. I had leftover gravy and porkchops that I didn’t use in the instant pot. The next night I just simply sautéed/browned the pork chops on a pan with olive oil and heated up the leftover gravy and it was just as delicious. Thank you so much.

    Wow – didn’t know pork chops could taste so good in the instant pot! I used thick bone-in pork chops and they were perfect – juicy and tender. To avoid the over saltiness some people experienced, I only used 1/2 tsp salt on the chops and used Campbells no salt cream of chicken soup and this was just perfect. This is a keeper and also easily manageable for a work week day. Thanks for a great recipe!

    Made these with AuJus mix instead of Brown gravy mix because it was all I had, the gravy turned out perfect! The pork chops cooked to perfection. Tender and juicy. Thanks for our new family favorite!

    Delicious! Thank you, Salty Marshmallow!!! Whole family loved it. Used bone-in chops and followed the recipe exactly. I browned the chops in a separate pan. We used egg noodles to soak up that astounding gravy. Love.

    Oh my goodness! How do you cone up with these recipes?! This was fantastic! My husband loved it. The pork chops were tender and the gravy was sooo good. I made baked potatoes on the side and went together very well.

    This was just delicious!

    Seasoned as above but add some smoked paprika.
    Used pork boneless back ribs instead of pork chops. It’s what I had on hand. Meat was super tender.
    Used turkey gravy mix instead of beef gravy mix. It’s what I had on hand.
    Used one can of beef broth instead of 2 cups. (It’s all I had on hand)
    Add one can of sliced mushrooms, drained (Maybe try real mushrooms next time.)
    Thicken with flour rubbed into 1 T butter instead of corn starch slurry.

    As you can tell, this recipe is very forgiving. And very delicious. Give it a go. You won’t be disappointed.
