Instructions Checklist

  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a pressure cooker over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook pork chops in hot butter until browned on both sides, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer pork chops to a plate.

  • Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in the pressure cooker. Saute carrots and onion in hot butter until fragrant, about 2 minutes; add broth and Worcestershire sauce. Return pork chops to the pressure cooker pot. Set a steamer basket on top of the pork chops and place potatoes in the basket.

  • Cover the pressure cooker with the lid, lock the lid, bring the cooker to high pressure, and cook under pressure for 13 minutes. Release pressure from the pot according to the manufacturer's instructions. Slice potatoes along the top and serve.

Cook's Notes:

Additional ready time is added because of time needed to bring pressure cooker to pressure and time for natural release. Time will vary depending on your cooker.

Can be made without carrots. Can use steak sauce instead of Worcestershire sauce. Can use chicken broth instead of vegetable broth.

Use a 6-quart or larger pressure cooker.

I used boneless pork chops and didn't add the carrots...didn't have any. Cut my onion in large chunks and used chicken broth...that's all I had. Followed recipe as written but only pressure cooked for 10 mins. I also let the pressure cooker come down on its own and DIDN'T quick release!! Those were the most delicious and moist pork chops I've ever eaten!! It is for sure a keeper!! Cut down on cooking time because I didn't have carrots. Cooked 5 chops. If you like pork chops these were fall apart chops!! Everyone should cook in a pressure cooker. Everything is so much better and moist!!. I just wish there were more recipes for pressure cookers on All Recipes!! Read More

I cook a lot and I followed directions to a T. It was tender but my entire family thought the pork chops were bland. The vegetables were good. Read More

Used boneless chops, but otherwise followed exactly--the chops were so tender they were falling apart! Even the picky nine year old gobbled it up--thanks so much for this recipe!!! Read More

My whole family loved this! I had never used a pressure cooker before so I was a little apprehensive, but it turned out very tender and flavorful. I didn't have vegetable broth so I used chicken broth and threw in some celery. I don't have a steamer basket so the potatoes just went in on top. I quartered them. Texture was still fine. No more dry pork chops at our house! Read More

I make this every other week! I use boneless pork chops, peel and cut the potatoes into chunks and just throw them in with the carrots and chops instead of putting them in the steamer basket. The leftovers taste great, too! Read More

This was the first meal I made in my instant pot. The chops came out fork-tender and amazing. I made it with peeled quartered sweet potatoes in the steamer basket. I'm going to try it again with russet potatoes. The only thing I would add is to be sure to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the pot if any are left after browning the chops and the onions when you put in the broth. Read More

Delicious and full of flavor. I doubled the veggie broth and Worcestershire and quartered the spuds otherwise no changes were made (and doesn't need any). I love having new recipes for the pressure cooker especially for pork chops. Love chops but they always end of being dry by other cooking methods. This recipe will go into my regular rotation. Thanks! Read More

Tender & Juicy chops! I have made this with boneless & bone in chops. I used ham bouillon instead of veg broth to really bring out the pork flavor. I added a few sprigs of rosemary. I don't have a steamer basket so I just put the potatoes on top of the chops. I did a natural release. Then I removed the potatoes & chops, thickened the juice with cornstarch to make a gravy. And added a packet of brown gravy mix. Then I sliced the potatoes & covered the whole dish with the gravy. Best pork chops I have ever made. Rave reviews! Read More
