Recipe Ingredients

Instant Pot Pork Chops and Potatoes

Pork chops - When cooking pork chops in the Instant Pot, I typically don't get them too thick. (I save the thick chops for the grill!)

Garlic powder - Perfect for a hint of garlic taste.

Paprika - Smoked paprika would be wonderful as well.

Salt and pepper - To taste.

Olive oil - Coconut oil is a great option as well.

Onion - Slice it up so that it will saute and cook easily.

Small potatoes - You can use small red potatoes or dice up larger potatoes to use.

Chicken broth - Instant Pot Bone Broth is another great option.

Thyme - Excellent for flavor.

Rosemary - Rosemary and pork pairs perfectly.

Chili powder - This can be optional, but it is great for a slight heat.

Recipe Notes

  • Make sure that you coat the pork well in the oil and spices when you add it to the Instant Pot. This is what coats it and gives it seasoning.
  • You may need to sear the pork chops in a skillet on the stovetop if you're hoping for an outer crispy crust.

How to Serve

You can literally serve these pork chops with just the potatoes. If you want to diversify, you an pair them with anything side dish you like. Some of my favorites are:

Recipe FAQs

Can I use the air fryer lid to make the pork crispy?

Yes, if you don't want to sear it in the skillet, you can place on the Air Fryer Lid and broil at 375F for 5-10 minutes.

Pork is safe to eat when the internal temperature is 145 degrees. You can check it easily by using a meat thermometer.

    Loved it. Altough the potatoes were a little off not sure why. Next time Im trying some cayenne just a touch more of a kick. I did use a teaspoon of honey as well. Thank you for this recipe.

    Fixed this for dinner tonight. Followed the recipe but basically cut everything in half as we are empty nester. Also added fresh baby carrots and minced garlic. The taste was wonderful,

  3. I would like to make this a truly one pot meal by adding a veggie to the dish. How do you think it would turn out if I added a 12 oz bag of frozen brussel sprouts with the potatoes? How much should I then adjust the other ingredients? Thanks for any advice!

    1. I think that sounds like a great idea! Brussels sprouts should be fairly sturdy and cook from frozen in that amount of time. Please let me know how it turns out!
