Needed a quick way to cook tender pork chops and this method did it! It took about 10 minutes and my husband and 6-year-old daughter fought over the leftovers!

3.30.19 I just knew this was going to be good, and I wasn't wrong. By all means, remove the chops from the pot after cooking is complete, and thicken the juices for an an awesome gravy/sauce. Apple juice and dry onion soup mix, what's not to like here, just knew it would be outstanding? I used boneless chops that were about 3/4" thick and threw in a few chunked gold yukon potatoes that cooked up beautifully. The only deviation from the recipe was that I seared the chops right at the beginning using the Sauté function for about 2 minutes per side just to get some color (for better eye appeal/presentation) and certainly would do that again. Very nice, tasty, and very easy dinner. Read More

I made this recipe. I didn't love it. I'm new to the IP community. And I need to try this one again. I didn't follow the direction completely which changed the outcome. The chops were tasty. I will give this one another try. Read More

Chops tasted great but were a bit tough. I think that may have been my fault though. Though I did not substitute or leave anything out I bought bone-in traditional chops one would use for frying instead of boneless. And I wasn't sure about laying them in apple juice so I put them on a trinket with the juice under the chops. My wife told me if I'd set them in the juice it would have tenderized them. So next time I leave out the trinket and use boneless chops. Again the taste was really really good! Read More

I made it once and substituted cranberry juice. It was great. The only problem was I cooked it too long and it was a teensie bit dry. But so good that I am trying again tonight with cranberry juice and less time. This is a great recipe!! Thanks! Read More

This was pretty good and a great recipe for anyone just starting to use their instant pot. I think that if i were to try this again I might make the soup mix that way I can control the seasoning. Overall 5 stars for ease of the recipe and 3.5 for taste. Read More

Mine did not make a gravy but the juice was very good. I substituted cranberry juice since I didn't have apple juice. I will use cranberry juice again it is awesome. I also added big chunks of carrots so I had a veggie as well. Read More
