Have you heard of the Instant Pot yet? I recently discovered this amazing device that offers up the ability to pressure cook, saute, slow cook and more all in one handy appliance. I bought one off Amazon and I’ve been hooked ever since. It is my go-to for quick and easy dinners in no time. It makes cooking effortless. No really, it’s seriously amazing. It practically has a cult following now.
I am notorious for planning out my weekly meals so my weeknights are organized and as effortless as possible. Every once in awhile though I’ll forget to take meat out of the freezer and I’ll have to work on the fly. Tonight we were supposed to be having BBQ ribs for dinner but I couldn’t find them in my overly stuffed freezer. I found bone in pork chops instead and set those out to thaw. I knew I could make them amazing with my Instant Pot but I couldn’t find a recipe for Instant Pot BBQ pork chops anywhere online!!! I knew I had to experiment and I wasn’t expecting amazing results.
Much to my surprise and delight my pork chops turned out absolutely amazing!! They were fall off the bone tender and packed full of flavor. They were easily the most moist pork chops I have EVER eaten. With that in mind I knew I better share this amazing Instant Pot BBQ pork chops recipe ASAP! I can’t be the only one struggling to find an amazing Instant Pot BBQ pork chops recipe!
First I took 4 (mostly) thawed bone in pork chops and seasoned them with Rub Some Butt BBQ Seasoning. I set my Instant Pot to saute and added 2 Tbsp olive oil and let it get hot. I then browned the pork chops on both sides, one at a time.
Once all pork chops are browned, remove final pork chop from pot and set aside. Add 1 1/2 cups chicken broth and scrape the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon to deglaze your pot. Add the browned pork chops back to the Instant Pot. Add a squirt of your favorite BBQ sauce to the pot, but don’t add much. This just adds in some flavor while they cook. I used Sweet Baby Ray’s Sweet ‘N Spicy BBQ sauce.
Now turn off the Instant Pot to stop the saute function and then choose manual. Set it to 10 minutes. Ensure your pressure valve is set to “sealing”. Now sit back and wait while your pork chops are cooked to falling apart perfection!
Once the Instant Pot completes the 10 minutes turn it off and allow it to naturally release pressure for 10 minutes. Then if you are in a hurry you can quick release any remaining pressure. Transfer the pork chops to a baking sheet and baste them in BBQ sauce. Place them under the broiler on high for 2-3 minutes until BBQ sauce gets caramelized and bubbly. Serve immediately and enjoy!
