Sugar 'n' Spice Pork Chops {Instant Pot}

I have found so many reasons to love my Instant Pot and pork chops is one. I became a "pork chop in the Instant Pot devotee" (you didn't know that was a thing?) after making the Pork Chops in Mushroom Gravy, which turn out absolutely fabulous in this magic appliance.

So I knew there had to be additional ways to cook chops, and I loved the list of spices when I saw this recipe. These chops turn out super flavorful, and again, don't dry out like they tend to do on the stove or in the oven. (At least that is my experience. If you can make wonderfully tender pork chops in the oven, hooray for you!)

(Do you love the charger cord in the background? Keepin' it real.)

These pork chops get coated with the brown sugar and spice mixture, and then get browned in the IP before settling in for a long winter's nap in a delicious brothy mixture. I served these with the fabulous Muffin Tin Potatoes Gratin Dauphinois and roasted asparagus. 


Sugar 'n' Spice Pork Chops

2 boneless pork chops, about 1" thick
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1 Tbsp. butter
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. Liquid Smoke

In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, salt, pepper, paprika, and onion powder. Rub this spice mixture over both sides of both pork chops.

Set your Instant Pot to saute, and melt the butter. Brown the pork chops on each side, about 1-2 minutes per side. Remove the pork chops to a plate and cancel the saute.

Add the chicken broth to the pot and stir well to deglaze. Add the Worcestershire sauce and the Liquid Smoke and stir well, then place pork chops in the liquid.

Place the lid on the pot, set to seal, and set the manual pressure cook to 7 minutes. After the 6 minutes, allow a 10 minute natural release. Let the pork chops rest about 5 minutes before serving.
