This recipe for Instant Pot pork chops makes your pork chops tender and juicy. Tender enough to cut with a fork or even pick up and bite off as my son did.

It does not cook them long enough to become pulled pork which is the perfect amount of tenderness I was looking for.

The gravy is absolutely optional as it is cooked separately from the pork chops.

How to Make Instant Pot Pork Chops

Raw boneless pork chops
  • Pat pork chops dry with a paper towel and season both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Set Instant Pot to Saute setting. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the bottom of the pot and once hot, add pork chops. You will likely need to do this in batches. I was able to do 2 at a time. Brown on both sides, about 2-3 minutes per side. Set the pork chops aside.
  • Add chicken broth to the bottom of the pot and scrape up any tidbits left behind. This will prevent the dreaded ‘Burn’ error from happening as it cooks. Add a metal trivet to the bottom of the pot. Place pork chops in Instant Pot on top of the trivet.
  • Place the lid on top and seal the vent. Set to meat/stew option and adjust heat to high. Set the timer for 7 minutes. After it cooks, allow it to natural release for 5 minutes then fully open the vent to quick release the pressure. Remove the lid and serve.
