  • Add to Instant Pot over the Pork Chops – Pour this mixture over the pork chops in the pressure cooker cooker and cover. All of the pork gets tossed into the instant pot. It is so simple.
  • Prepare the Instant Pot – Add the lid and set the valve to sealing.
  • High Pressure Cook – Set the pressure (high pressure for 25 minutes). Cooking time will vary based on your instant pot.
  • Quick Release – Do a quick release to release the pressure.
  • Remove Pork Chops – Remove pork chops from Instant pot and place on a plate; cover to keep warm. After everything is finished cooking, the sauce will be a little thin.  This is when the cornstarch comes in.

How long to Cook Pork Chops in Instant Pot?

When cooking the pork chops in the instant pot doesn’t take long. Using the instant pot has been a game change for my family. These Honey Garlic Pork Chops only take about 25 minutes to cook at high pressure.

Make sure that you make extra sauce so you have enough to pour over the cooked pork chops.

Variation Ideas:

  • Add Vegetables – Add vegetables to the instant pot for a complete meal. We like adding in potatoes, green beans or asparagus.
  • Pork Chops – You can use bone-in or boneless pork chops.
  • Change the Seasoning – You can add in some soy sauce for added flavor. Change the seasoning to what your prefer.

Easy Honey Garlic Pork Chops Tips:

  • Pork Chops – When making pork chops in the instant pot, I recommend to use thicker pork chops. Thin pork chops will over cook and get dried out.
  • Sear Pork Chops – If you prefer you can sear the pork chops in the instant pot, but it is not necessary.
  • Tender Pork – You can do a quick release but a natural release allows the juices to really soak into the pork chops.
  • Honey Garlic Sauce – The honey garlic sauce is my favorite part of this meal. Don’t skip the part on thickening the sauce with the cornstarch.
  • Meat Thermometer – We recommend using an meat thermometer to make sure you pork chops are cooked. The should have an internal temperature of 145 degrees.

Can I use Frozen Pork Chops in this Recipe?

Yes, you can! In fact, I often forget to take the pork chops out of the freezer and use frozen ones in the instant pot.

We just love our instant pot because you can make even frozen meat in minutes. Frozen pork chops instant pot recipe turns out just as amazing.

How to Store Leftovers:

Leftover need to be placed in the refrigerator. They will last for about 3 to 5 days. Place in an air tight container for an amazing lunch the next day.

We love having this leftover because the honey garlic sauce will marinates in the pork chops for an amazing second meal.

  2. Yes, I think you could just leave the salt out and it would still be good. Thanks!

  3. Made these last night and they were amazing. In the ingredients list it calls for butter but, I didn’t see where to add it?

  4. Unsalted butter is listed in the ingredients, but the directions don’t call for it. Where does it go?

  5. Sorry, that was a typo and butter is not needed for this recipe. I have updated the recipe. Thank you!

  6. Yes, it would be great in a crock pot. I would cook them on low for 6-8 hours. Thank you!

  7. I was a little bit confuse about the garlic powder it didn’t ask for it in the ingredients????? Was I suppose to out some? Also it ask for chicken broth bit in the instruction you mention vegetable. I assume you were able to use both.. I love all the recipes you post. Thank you so much to make meal time so much more easier.
