These tender and juicy Instant Pot Pork Chops are so flavourful. With a perfectly seasoned outer crust topped with a luscious gravy, this restaurant quality meal is ready in under an hour!

Instant Pot Pork Chops

Instant Pot pork chops are rubbed with garlic and seasoned with paprika, thyme, and oregano among other mouthwatering ingredients. After deglazing the pan with wine and broth, all of that flavour gets turned into a spectacularly rich gravy.

This showstopper of a meal is fancy enough to serve to guests at your next gathering but simple enough to make on any weeknight. No one needs to know just how easy it is!

Whether you choose to make boneless or bone-in pork chops, both will yield incredible results. Your entire family will thank you!

Ingredients for Instant Pot Pork Chops

  • Pork chops: You will need about 8 bone-in or boneless pork chops. Bone-in might add to the depth of flavour but either one will do!
  • Herbs and garlic: Grated garlic cloves, dried oregano and dried thyme.
  • Spices: Smoked paprika, salt, and pepper.
  • Liquids: Oil for frying. Olive oil is great. Low sodium broth (any kind), red or white wine, water.
  • Cornstarch: When mixed with cold water and added to the sauce, it will help thicken it up to a gravy consistency.
  • Garnish: Chopped fresh parsley.

How to Make Instant Pot Pork Chops

  • Prep: Trim the fat off the pork chops. In a small bowl, combine herbs and spices and set aside.
  • Season: Lay chops out on a flat surface and rub both sides with grated garlic. Then sprinkle with the herbs and spices mixture and coat the entire surface of each one. Instant Pot Pork Chops seasoned in glass bowl
  • Brown: Using a 6 or 8 quart Instant Pot, press Saute. When the display reads Hot add a bit of oil to coat the bottom of the pot. Brown the pork chops on both sides, transferring to a plate as you go. Instant Pot Pork Chops browned and on white plate
  • Deglaze: Add broth and wine to deglaze the pot using a wooden spoon. Scrape off the bottom of the pan making sure to lift off the crispy bits. Not only do they add incredible flavour but you avoid having them burn. No one wants to taste burnt bits!
  • Cook: Add the rack to the pot and pile pork chops on top. Pressure Cook on High for 15 minutes. Wait 5 minutes and release pressure by Venting. Instant Pot Pork Chops stacked in pressure cooker and seasoned with parsley
  • Remove: Place pork chops onto a platter and remove the rack, leaving remaining juices. Press Saute. Tent the pork chops while they rest to keep the juices in.
  • Make gravy: In a small bowl, whisk the cold water with cornstarch. Slowly pour into the bubbling juices while constantly whisking. Cook until gravy has thickened.
  • Serving: Serve pressure cooker pork chops on a bed of mashed potatoes or a low carb alternative cauliflower mash and you have a truly satisfying meal made with very little time and effort!

Pro Tip: Take the pork chops out of the fridge approximately 15 minutes prior to cooking. Allowing it to warm closer to room temperature will allow for more even cooking.

Tips and Variations

  • Smaller portion: For 6 quart Instapot, cut the recipe in half.
  • No wine: If you don’t have wine on hand or don’t want to add any to this recipe, replace it with extra broth.
  • Tasty additions: Saute onions and mushrooms with the garlic for an added flavour. Turn the gravy into a mushroom gravy.
  • Too much?: This recipe yields a lot of pork chops! This is great for leftovers or serving a crowd. Cut the recipe in half if you don’t need that many.

How to Store, Freeze and Reheat

Storing: Store pork chops in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Freezing: Seal in an airtight, freezer-friendly bag or container and freeze for up to 3 months. Keep them wrapped individually if you plan to only take out one or two at a time.  You can also freeze the gravy in separate airtight containers. Again, in smaller portions depending on how much you need.

Reheating: Place pork chops in a baking dish, with gravy. Cover with foil and reheat in the oven at 350 degrees F until thoroughly heated.
