How To Make Instant Pot Smothered Pork Chops

The pork chop is among the most popular cuts of meat around the world. And like most cuts of pork, it has a mild meaty flavor that works well with a lot of flavor combos. So, it’s not really so surprising to know that you can recreate lots of dishes with this as the main protein. Sure, they taste great with a simple splash of seasoning. But if you’re up to it, you can also marinade, stuff, or slather them in sauce. Get inspired with the pork chop recipes below!

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 25 minutes
Total: 40 minutes



  • 4 bone-in pork chops
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Season the pork chops with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and paprika on both sides.

  2. Select the “Saute” function on the Instant Pot and heat the olive oil. Brown the pork chops on both sides, working in batches if necessary. Remove the pork chops and set aside.

  3. Add the sliced onion and minced garlic to the Instant Pot and saute until softened.

  4. Pour in the chicken broth and scrape the bottom of the pot to release any browned bits.

  5. Place the pork chops back into the Instant Pot, close the lid, and set the vent to the sealing position.

  6. Select the “Manual” or “Pressure Cook” function and set the timer for 10 minutes.

  7. Once the cooking time is complete, do a quick release of the pressure.

  8. Remove the pork chops and set aside. Select the “Saute” function again and bring the sauce to a simmer.

  9. In a small bowl, whisk together the heavy cream and cornstarch. Pour the mixture into the Instant Pot and stir well.

  10. Cook the sauce for a few minutes until it thickens.

  11. Serve the smothered pork chops with the sauce spooned over the top. Garnish with fresh parsley.
