Instant Pot Pork Chops

Pork Chops are a staple in my house for a few reasons:

  • They are cheap (ish).
  • They are quick and easy to prepare.
  • B will eat them even if they are simply prepared.

The only problem is that they are easy to over cook. The instant pot helps keep them tender. This recipe isn’t fancy, but it is easy and kid approved. B and I split one for dinner last night.


  • 2 thick bone-in pork Chops (about 1 inch thick)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup bone broth (any type will be fine)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Push the sauté button on the instant pot and heat up your coconut oil.
  2. While the coconut oil is heating, mix salt, pepper, garlic, sage and rosemary. Spring the mixture on top of your pork Chops.
  3. Brown your pork Chops in the instant pot for about 4 minutes per side. I was able to brown both at once, but if your Chops are too large, brown them separately.
  4. Pour broth over the top and place the lid on the instant pot. Cancel the sauté mode and then press the meat button. This will cook your Chops for 20 minutes.
  5. Allow the pressure to release naturally, then open the lid. Serve the Chops with freshly chopped parsley.
