Mealthy Tip

If you can't find pork stock at the grocery store, you can substitute chicken or beef stock instead. Just before serving, top each pork chop with a few additional turns of freshly ground black pepper.

I admittedly wrecked my first attempt at this because the chops were too thin. Meat was too stringy and dry. Second run was sublime. I used apple cider instead of pork stock, because who has pork stock?! Went well with baked sweet potatoes, though will bake russets next time because sweet potato plus apples was a little too sweet overall, but the sauce was great on those sweet potatoes. I guess I'm conflicted.

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.

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.

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.

Rachel Douglas says:

I used extra thick chops for this recipe! They turned out really good. That and the apples together were perfection. I wasn't sure how the cooking times would work out for both the meat and the apples, but I am yet again amazed at my Multipot and pressure cooking in general.

I have now made stock, placed in flat plastic bags, it rocks! By gosh, I do have pork stock and veggie stock and chicken stock and beef stock as well as fish stock! This pot rocks and I am so glad I chose a Mealthy! Great site, excellent from scratch recipes, how could you lose? Thanks for such a great product!

The pork was pretty tender but next I think I would use cinnamon and brown sugar. I used a crockpot express on this recipe.

I’ve made this recipe at least five times and still love it. I’ve used both stock and apple cider and we like the flavor the cider gives it. I usually make asparagus with Parmesan and some brown rice. Definitely a great recipe!

This was great! I used three thick, bone-in organic chops. I think the bone-in keeps it tender. I sauteed half an onion before I seared the chops, and added it back in with the apples (Fuji), and it tasted good. Used ground cumin, just ⅛ tsp, rather than seeds, plus a little cinnamon, suggested by another commenter here. I live at 7500 feet so added 3 mins to the time. Husband loved it... I had mashed sweet potatoes (not yams) and asparagus on the side. Groans of delight. I love my Multi Pot.

Not the tender braise I was hoping for - the chops seized up a bit. The apples were sauce as described (and delish.)

Tiffany Kaiser says:

So yummy! But it needed a bit more time like 10 min

Good but way to much cumin. Will try to make it again sometime with half the cumin.

William Hoover says:

could this be done without cumin seeds?

Loved this recipe!! I think maybe 1 minute less in my pressure cooker. The apples got too soft. But the pork had amazing flavor and was very juicy! I sprinkled cinnamon over the apples as someone else suggested and it was excellent!! Next time I will try the Apple cider.

Just bought this cooker and was excited to try it. My pork chops always come out dry, so I tried this recipe first. Followed recipe exactly. Pork chops were 1 inch think, bone in. Terrible!!!!! The chops had not much flavor and were very dry. So disappointed. Not sure if this cooker is worth the money.
