HOW TO MAKE INSTANT POT PORK CHOPS
Step 1: Sprinkle the pork chops with salt and ground black pepper.
Step 2: Set your Instant Pot to “Saute” mode. Drizzle with olive oil once the pot has fully heated. Add the pork chops and par sear them until both sides are slightly brown. You can also do this on a regular skillet or non-stick skillet.
Step 3: To the pot, add the garlic and chicken broth. Over the pork chops, sprinkle the cayenne pepper. Put the lid on and set the pot to “Manual” on high pressure for 8 minutes.
Step 4: Once the time is up, do a Quick Release. Carefully remove the cover once the valve drops.
Step 5: To the pork chops, add the heavy whipping cream along with salt and shredded Parmesan cheese. Mix well, then set the pot to “Saute” for about 2 to 3 minutes until the sauce has thickened.
Step 6: Serve the pork chops right away topped with parsley and shredded Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
