Instant Pot Pork Chops and Mashed Potatoes

What kind of pork chops can you use?

You will want to use boneless pork chops for this recipe. I like to get ones that are ½” to 1 inch thick. 

If you prefer thinner pork chops they may not be as tender. If you opt for thicker pork chops you will need to increase the cooking time. 

How to Make Instant Pot Pork Chops and Mashed Potatoes

  • Season both sides of the pork chops with the ranch dressing.

  • In your inner pot, whisk together the brown gravy mix, cream of chicken soup, and beef broth.

  • Add the seasoned pork chops to the pot.

  • Place your steamer basket on top gently.

  • Place your potatoes on top of your steamer basket.

  • Cook on manual high pressure for 10 minutes
  • Do a natural release for 10 minutes then release the remaining pressure by switching to a quick release.
  • Remove the pork chops carefully onto a plate.
  • In a small bowl stir together the cornstarch and water. Whisk the cornstarch mixture into the inner pot to thicken the gravy.
  • Keep warm while mashing your potatoes.

Potatoes

  • I mash with my hand mixer just to speed the process up so things do not get cold. Mix your milk & butter in with your potatoes. Mix well until creamy and delicious.

  • Enjoy!!

Storage

You will want to store your leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days. 

Can I cook frozen pork chops?

Yes, you can cook frozen pork chops. It will just take a few more minutes to come to pressure as well as to cook. 

Can you overcook pork chops in the Instant Pot?

It is possible to overcook pork chops in the instant pot, but this is usually not the reason why your meat is tough. 

This is usually caused because you did not cook your pork long enough so it was not tenderized. The secret is to use a thicker pork chop so it has time to become tender.

I want to make this tonight but my boneless pork chops are 1 inch thick. Should I adjust the cook time? Also does the chops sit right in the liquid or on the trivet?

Can this recipe be doubled? I have an 8 qt. instant pot and a minimum of 5 people at each meal (sometimes 8) with two of the five being teenagers who can eat like nobody's business.
