Ingredients

  • 4 thick cut pork chops
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • ½ red bell pepper chopped
  • ½ green bell pepper chopped
  • 1 Tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Steak Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp hot sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Ketchup
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • ¾ cup chicken broth
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp water

Instructions

  • Season the pork chops on both sides with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  • Press the “Sauté” button, ensuring that it is set to “More.” Once the display says “Hot,” add the olive oil.
  • Add seasoned pork chops and cook for about 3 minutes each side or until the sides are slightly browned. Remove from Instant Pot and set aside.
  • Add butter to Instant Pot and allow to melt. Add onion and bell peppers and stir. Add garlic and continue to stir until onions have softened, about two minutes.
  • Deglaze by pouring chicken broth into the pot and stirring with a wooden spoon, making sure to get all bits and pieces from the bottom of the pot.
  • Add Worcestershire sauce, steak sauce, hot sauce, ketchup, and thyme and stir.
  • Add pork chops back into the pot, laying them on top of the liquid.
  • Place the lid on the pot and set the valve to sealing. Press "Cancel" and then press "Pressure Cook" (or Manual) and set cooking time for 8 minutes on High Pressure.
  • Once timer is done, allow the Instant Pot to natural release for 10 minutes, then release any remaining pressure from the pot and remove the lid.
  • Press Cancel on the Instant Pot and remove the pork chops. Press “Sauté” on the Instant Pot and bring liquid to slight boil. In a separate bowl, create a thickener by whisking together 2 Tbsp cornstarch and 2 Tbsp water. Pour it into the liquid in the Instant Pot while stirring. Stir until thickened, about one minute.
  • Pour the gravy over the pork chops and Enjoy :)

Notes

This recipe was created in a 6 Qt Instant pot DUO.
I will sometimes add an additional 1/2 tsp salt to the gravy after it's done pressure cooking. The amount of salt in the recipe will depend on the saltiness of the chicken broth you use.
