Pork Chops & Rice in an Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker
Quick and straightforward pork chops with onions and rice are made in a pressure cooker. Dinner is prepared is less than 45 minutes!
- 4 pork chops, about 1/2 inch thick each
- Olive oil, or bacon grease
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 1/2 cups long grain white rice
- 3 cups chicken or beef broth
- 1 can cream of mushroom with roasted garlic soup
- Salt and pepper or Cavender’s Greek Seasoning
Preparation time 15mins
Cooking time 45mins
Season pork chops with salt and pepper. (I use Cavender’s instead.)
Set pot to saute’, add oil, and brown two chops on ONE side only; remove to plate and brown the other two chops on one side only. While the last two chops are browning, put in the onion and scrape it around the bottom of the pan (around the chops) to sort of deglaze. Remove chops to plate.
Pour a small amount of the broth into the pot and scrape bottom to deglaze.
Add rice, rest of broth, pork chops, then soup.
High pressure for 12 minutes.
Unplug and natural release for 5 minutes.
Quick release rest of pressure.
Unplug and let sit for 5 minutes.
Remove lid. Remove chops and stir rice.
