  • Instant Pot


  • 2.5 lbs Pork Sirloin Chops
  • 1 packet Ranch Seasoning Packet
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 Onion sliced
  • 2 cloves Garlic sliced
  • 1 can Chicken Broth 1.75 cups
  • 2-3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Corn Starch
  • 3 Tbsp Water
  • 1 Lemon or lemon juice


  • Slice onion and garlic cloves
  • Press 'Saute'
  • Rub pork chops with one whole ranch seasoning packet
  • When instant pot is 'Hot' add olive oil
  • Place two pork chops (or more that fit without overcrowding) into the pot to brown for 2-3 minutes
  • Grind black pepper over pork chops
  • Flip pork chops, grind pepper over them, brown for another 2-3 minutes then plate the pork chops
  • Repeat to finish the rest of the pork chops
  • Add sliced onions to the instant pot and 1/4 cup of the chicken broth
  • With 'Saute' on, use a flat wood spatula to scrape the browning off the pot bottom
  • Simmer onions for ~4 minutes stirring often cleaning/scraping the pot bottom
  • Add sliced garlic to the onions and continue to simmer for another 1 minute on 'saute' stirring often
  • Add the rest of the chicken broth from the can and stir ingredients and cancel 'saute'
  • Place all of the pork chops into the pot overlapping each others to fit with as much of each pork chop in the broth as possible
  • Put the instant pot lid on, seal it, and pressure cook for 7 minutes plus 10 minutes natural pressure release
  • Mix the cornstarch and water together in a measuring cup for the slurry
  • After 10 minutes of natural pressure release, open the valve to release the pressure, remove the lid and carefully move the pork chops to a plate using tongs
  • Press 'Saute'
  • Stir in slurry mixture with a whisk breaking up the onions into small pieces
  • Bring to a boil, whisking or stirring often until the boil is like velvet (just a little thickened)
  • Turn off 'saute'
  • Plate a pork chop, squeeze lemon over the pork chop to amplify the ranch seasoning and then cover with as much gravy as you'd like



I use an 8 quart instant pot with enough room to brown two large pork sirloin chops at a time.  You can’t taste the lemon juice but you’ll notice a more rich flavor compared to if you do not use lemon juice squeezed over the finished pork chop.  Please watch the instructional how to video below for guidance and motivation.  Enjoy!

  3. You mention the garlic in the ingredients and in the video I believe, but in the written recipe I didnt see at which point to add the onion. I assumed same time as onion, hopefully. Thanks! Looking forward to seeing how this turns out ! Instant pot saved me and my horrible cooking, lol.

  4. Sorry, I read over the instructions multiple times , but as soon as I posted my previous comment I saw your inclusion of garlic in the instructions. Figures. Ironic. Murphy’s law. Never find lost item until you buy a new one. Lol 🙇‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️

    • Oh my goodness Laura! I am so sorry that I missed these comments. 🙂 I am so happy to see it worked out, I hope you enjoyed the recipe!
