You Need MORE Instant Pot Recipes In Your Feed!! NOW!!

Have you been inundated with Instant Pot recipes? How about a recipe for pork chop sammiches?! Ugh, I wish I’d never seen that G.I. Joe PSA. *sigh*
Seriously though, here’s s’more! See what I did there? s’more? 😉  Ok, not serious. I need to go camping.
Yeah…I know I’m supposed to take a picture of the end, but (whines) I was hungry! So you’ll have to use your imagination. It was beautifully plated as if Chef Gordon Ramsay had done it himself. (snickers)

Instant Pot Pork Chops

Prep time:  
Cook time:  40-50
Total time:  60
Serves: 4
  • 3-4 medium cut bone-in OR boneless pork chops (thinly sliced work well)
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 10.5 oz can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can of water (use the cream of mushroom soup can)
  • 1-2 tbsp. white vinegar
  • 1 C. fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. Add the olive oil and saute the garlic in the Instant Pot.
  2. Salt & pepper both sides of the pork chops and brown on saute setting in the Instant Pot (5 or 6 minutes for each side), adding the vinegar as they brown.
  3. While the pork chops are browning, mix together the cream of mushroom soup and water.
  4. Hit cancel (to shut off saute setting). Pour the cream of mushroom mixture. Add the sliced mushrooms.
  5. Close and lock the Instant Pot. Set pressure to manual and high pressure. Timer should be 30 minutes (usually the default time on manual).
  6. Let the Instant Pot vent itself (maybe around 10-15 min). Natural release is recommended in dishes with large liquid volume.

Comment: I’d used thinly sliced pork chops and they still turned out good. The meat was falling apart in pieces. The only thing this recipe lacked (which I’ve now added) is vinegar. I love mushroom chicken over rice. This is so close to that, except with pork chops. But it needs that something. For me, that does the trick and bumps this dish up a notch.

Side dish recommendations: My family loves rice. My son doesn’t, but he does love broccoli. So those were our sides. This sauce goes well over rice. Eh, I didn’t try it on the broccoli, though. That evokes memories of the television show, Monk, in that I need my sides separated and not touching. Ok, maybe not quite to that extreme…but close. I’m not the only one. Admit it!
