  • 4 (¾-inch) thick-cut pork chops
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 apples - peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup pork stock


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Sprinkle pork chops with cumin, salt, and pepper. Select Sauté on pressure cooker to preheat base; add oil. Brown chops on one side only, 3 to 5 minutes; remove to a plate.
  2. Tumble apple slices into the empty pressure cooker. Arrange pork chops, brown-sides up, onto apples, overlapping as needed. Pour any juice from the plate over the pork; add stock around the edges.
  3. Close lid and set valve to Sealing. Press Meat/Stew and adjust cooking time to 8 minutes at High Pressure. When cooking time is up, slowly release pressure through the Quick Release Valve.
  4. Move pork chops to a serving platter; smother with applesauce before serving.
Mealthy tip:

If you don't have pork stock, you can use chicken or beef stock.

This recipe is crazy good. For this one I used really thin sliced porkchops so they were very juicy and not dry at all. The combo of the pork chops with apples and the CUMIN (which tastes a bit like cinnamon in this pairing) really shines. I would recommend this recipe to anyone who wants to try a new pressure cooker pork recipe.

This is for sure one of my favorite pork chop recipes. It wasn't dry at all and the flavor was incredible. I used chicken stock instead of pork stock, and it still was amazing.

These pork chops with apples were light and delicious. It was really easy to make and perfect for a busy weeknight. I added a dash of cinnamon to this dish for a little sweet flavor. All in all, the pork chops and apples paired brilliantly together.
