How Long to Cook Pork Chops in Instant Pot


If you’re not familiar with the Instant Pot, it’s a multi-cooker that combines all the functions of a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker and more. I’ve been using mine for years now and it remains one of my favorite kitchen appliances. Recently I’ve been experimenting with cooking pork chops in my Instant Pot. The results have been delicious and I love how easy it is! Here are three different ways to cook pork chops in your Instant Pot (or other pressure cooker).

Step 1

The first step in cooking pork chops in the Instant Pot is to select your cut of meat. You can use either whole pork chops or cut them into pieces.

You can also use other cuts, such as pork steaks or even loin (if you’re feeling adventurous).

Step 2

  • Step 2: Cook on high pressure for 15 minutes.
  • Let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes, then do a quick release to finish. (If you’re using frozen pork chops, this step will take longer.)
  • Remove from pot and set aside.

Step 3

When you’re ready to cook, place the pork chops in the Instant Pot.

The cooking time will depend on whether or not you have extra-large or small chops, but generally speaking, it’s about 15 minutes for every pound of meat.

Once the cooking time has elapsed (if using a digital pressure cooker), turn off heat and allow the pot to depressurize naturally before opening it up again. The internal temperature should read 145 degrees Fahrenheit when using a meat thermometer to check on this step–it may take up to 20 minutes for all remaining steam inside your pot to escape after opening it up fully!

Cooking pork chops in the Instant Pot takes only 15 minutes.


Cooking pork chops in the Instant Pot takes only 15 minutes.

The best way to cook pork chops in an Instant Pot is by using a method called “searing.” This means you’ll brown your meat on the saute setting for about 5 minutes, then add liquid and pressure cook for 8-10 minutes. You can also use this method if you have any other cuts of meat that need some browning before being cooked through (like chicken thighs).

You can cook as many or as few pieces of pork at once as you like; just adjust cooking time accordingly!


Pork chops are a great meal to make in an Instant Pot. They’re easy to cook and can be served with sides like rice or potatoes. You can also make a simple sauce to go over them by mixing together ketchup, mustard and lemon juice for extra flavor!
