Instant Pot Boneless Pork Chops

This is the last day for very hot and humid temperatures here in Western PA.  Temps reaching 90 with the heat index making it feel like it’s 100 degrees!  It’s September, time to cool things down Mother Nature!! It’s why I love having my Instant Pot.  No heating up the kitchen or turning the oven on to make dinner.  I can say that enough!  🙂

Today, I made boneless pork chops. I wasn’t going to write up this recipe, so I didn’t get any before pictures, but you all know what a pork chop looks like.  I used a rub on mine, but you don’t have to, but you will need to season them before browning.

4 boneless pork chops
1 cup of chicken broth (I use Better than Bouillon to make 1 cup)
1/2 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 T butter

To give them some flavor, I’m making a rub using brown sugar.
Rub Ingredients
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Mix spices together, and coat both sides of your pork chops.

Turn your Instant Pot on to the Saute feature and let it heat up.  A HOT message should show up when it’s ready.

Add your butter, when it’s melted, add your pork chops.  Brown on both sides.

Press CANCEL to shut off the Saute feature.

Remove pork chops to a plate and add the chicken broth & Worcestershire sauce and scrape off the brown bits left by the browning of the pork chops. 
If you don’t scrape the bits off the bottom, it prevents the Instant Pot from coming to pressure.

Add the trivet and place pork chops on to the trivet.

Since I am making red potatoes, I will cook them at the same time.  You can add them to a steamer basket or use the pot in pot method.

Place the potatoes that you have seasoned, I used a garlic salt & black pepper seasoning on top of the pork chops.  ( I have a small trivet in between).

If you don’t have an extra trivet, then place pork chops into the broth, put trivet on top of pork chops, then place your steamer, or pot on top.
I found this Instant Pot Steamer Silicone Set at our local thrift shop, it’s sold by QVC.

Close the lid and make sure vent is on seal.

Set timer for 7 minutes.  It took about 10 minutes for my pork chops to come to pressure.

Once the 7 minutes is up, let it do a Natural Release for 12 minutes, then release the rest of the steam.

Remove the potatoes and pork chops.  If you like pour some extra broth on the top.
