Pork Chops – Simple and Quick

By March 5, 2014

Submitted by Teresa G.


  • 3-4 Pork Chops – ½ to ¾ inch thick
  • One egg – beaten
  • Flour
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Bread Crumbs
  • Onions – chopped – as much as you like – ½ cup maybe
  • 2 – 4 Garlic cloves – squashed and chopped
  • Butter- 1 tbsp
  • Oil 1-2 tbsp. or orange/ginger coconut oil (Loblaws/Superstore)


Put pressure cooker on sauté.  Heat the oil and butter to very hot.  Should I want my pork chops slightly flavoured I use the orange/ginger coconut oil or just coconut oil to heat replacing the oil.

Make sure your pork chops are at room temperature.  Dredge them in flour, dip into beaten egg, dredge them in bread crumbs.  Brown them lots on both sides in the hot pressure cooker.  When well browned on both sides, remove and put on plate.

Throw in the onions, swish them around for a minute until softer looking, then throw in the garlic and swish around.

Switch to steam cycle.

Leave the onions, garlic and drippings in the pot.  Add about two to three tablespoons of water.  Put steamer in pot, place browned pork chops on steamer above the water and drippings.

Seal lid, steam for 5 minutes, release the steam,  remove from the pot…….Perfect, juicy pork chops You may use the ‘juice’ in the pot to pour over the pork chops or you can add a little polenta (or flour) and water, saute and make it like a gravy.

    So I’m assuming this is bone-in….would the timing be the same for boneless cutlets?

    I needed directions for cooking a couple of seasoned, undredged pork loin chops and this was the closest thing I could find. I followed the basic instructions without using the dredge or the vegetables. I simply added 1/2 cup of chicken stock after removing the seared chops from the pot; then I placed the chops back in on the steam rack and steamed for the recommended 5 minutes. Manually released the steam and checked the temperature. They were 175 degrees F. Not bad.

    Thanks for your variation on this recipe, Dianna! I needed directions for the very same chops and was glad to find a simpler, non-breaded method.

    Hi, I’m wondering if manually releasing the steam makes the chops tough. I’m very new to IP, still reading through this great community’s postings, but have already read never to use the quick release with meat. I was hoping to make simple pork chops my first attempt with my IP. Thanks.
