This recipe is also delicious served with white rice. You can learn how to freeze rice and you can make this meal even easier.
I love to grab the rice from the freezer in the morning and when we come home it is all ready to reheat and serve. We do this for lots of meals and it helps on busy weeknights.
If you want to get some veggies in there, a simple side salad goes great with it and only takes a few minutes to prepare. Green Beans are also really tasty too with it.
This meal is also good with asparagus. This oven roasted asparagus is a family favorite and it is very simple and quick to make.

How to make pork chops in the instant pot:
Place pork chops in the Instant pot. Set the Instant pot to saute and quickly brown the pork chops on each side with the olive oil.
Whisk together remaining ingredients (except the cornstarch and water) and pour over pork in the Instant pot after the pork chops are finished browning.
Cover and set the valve to sealing. Cook on high pressure for 20 minutes.
Do a a quick release to release the pressure. You can do a natural release and the pork chops will fall apart.
Remove the lid and remove the pork chops onto a place.
How to make gravy for the pork chops?
Return the Instant pot to the saute feature because we are going to make a gravy.
In a small bowl whisk together the cornstarch and water. Slowly pour the cornstarch mixture into the sauce in the instant pot and whisk in the sauce.
Bring to a boil whisking occasionally until it thickens – about 5 minutes. It does not take long.
Turn off and the gravy will thicken as it cools slightly. Return the pork chops to the gravy or serve with the gravy on top.
Notes: If you prefer to have more gravy, increase the chicken broth to two cups and double the cornstarch slurry.
Why are my instant pot pork chops tough?
If your pork chops are tough, it is an indication they were overcooked. Be careful to not cook the pork chops too long. No one likes tough and hard to chew pork chops!
What to Do With Leftover Pork Chops?
One of our favorite ways to enjoy leftover pork chops and gravy is to make an open faced sandwich. This is so easy and you can just use normal loaf bread.
Add the pork chops, gravy and mashed potatoes to a slice of bread. Open faced sandwiches are so delicious and very easy. The kids think they are eating an entirely new meal and don’t even realize it’s leftovers. 🙂
I like to drizzle even more gravy on top to let it soak into the bread. The gravy is so good.
