Pressure Cooker Pork Chops and Apples
- 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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Move pork chops to a serving platter; smother with applesauce before serving.
If you don't have pork stock, you can use chicken or beef stock.
What others are saying
Tiana D. says:
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.
Greg Jones says:
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.
Laura Griffin says:
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.
