Getting Started with the Juiciest Pork Chops
To make these juicy pork chops, we’ll be using standard cut pork chops. If you have thinner or thicker cuts on hand, you can certainly use those too. Start by sauteeing a couple of strips of bacon in your Instant Pot. The bacon adds an extra layer of flavor that you won’t be able to resist. Note: You can use more bacon if you’re a bacon lover! After sauteeing the bacon, it’s time to brown the pork chops. Just a quick sear on each side will do the trick.
Flavorful Ingredients for the Perfect Pork Chop
Now, it’s time to add in the flavor-packed ingredients. In addition to your sauteed bacon and browned pork chops, add minced garlic, honey, and soy sauce to the Instant Pot. The garlic adds a wonderful aroma, while the honey and soy sauce provide a perfect balance of sweetness and savory goodness. Give everything a good stir and make sure nothing is stuck to the bottom. We want all those flavors to blend harmoniously.
Let the Instant Pot Work Its Magic
Once everything is in the pot, it’s time to let the Instant Pot work its magic. Set it to cook on manual pressure or use the meat stew setting if available. For average thick cut pork chops, set the timer for ten minutes. Adjust the cooking time based on the thickness of your pork chops. Remember, you can always add more time if needed, but you can’t undo overcooked chops.
Thickening the Sauce for an Irresistible Finish
Once the pressure cooking is complete, release the pressure and take a look at your perfectly cooked pork chops. Don’t they look incredible? But we’re not done just yet. We want to take that delicious sauce in the pot and turn it into something even more amazing. Mix a little water and cornstarch together and add it to the pot. Switch on the saute function again to thicken the sauce. Stir constantly to prevent sticking.
Time to Plate and Savor
Now that the sauce is thickened, it’s time to plate your juicy pork chops. Serve them with your choice of side dishes like mashed potatoes, rice, or vegetables. If you want to get really fancy, pour some of that incredible sauce over your chosen side dish. It’ll take the whole meal to another level!
Now, take a moment to appreciate the beauty of these perfectly cooked pork chops. They are juicy, flavorful, and absolutely mouthwatering. Trust me, these may just be the best pork chops you’ve ever tasted. Don’t miss out on this delicious experience.
