The Instant Pot allows for some really quick meals and pork chops are no exception! We live busy lives (as I am sure you do as well). Anything I can do to shave off a little bit of time from my daily routine I am all over it. If it is super delicious, that is an even bigger win! Knowing all of that? Southwest pork chops (and gravy) in the Instant Pot are a must cook.
Southwest Pork Chops in the Instant Pot – An Instant Hit!
As you can imagine, being parents of young kids equals many nights where we play “will they eat it”. I know the moment we opened the Instant Pot that the kid would both love these chops. As I’ve said in (probably) every post we live small. That means that smells live big (haha). I absolutely would make these again just to have our entire home smell delicious.
The perfect sides
I should add, if you are looking for sides to this main dish, salad and veggies paired perfectly. All things considered, I would 100% use a salad with “fruit” undertones. Our dressing had blueberry notes and the contrast between the southwest ham and the fruity sweet salad was amazing. A perfect pair. We tend to always have vegetables with dinner with just some salt and pepper on top. They really are a wonderful addition that completes the meal.
Southwest Pork Chops with Gravy in the Instant Pot
Incredibly flavored pork sirloin chops covered in a homemade southwest seasoning and pressure cooked in the instant pot with a gravy made from the sauce left in the pan. This is an easy recipe that will guide you through cooking pork chops that are packed with sharp peppery flavors that will ignite your taste buds. The gravy makes itself with a little help from you at the end to get it to your perfect consistency.
Let the gravy develop into a boil and stir your broth
After the gravy boil starts back up and looks about like a boiling velvet, cancel your saute, the gravy is ready
Plate your pork chops, cover them in plenty of gravy, serve with roasted vegetables, potatoes, a salad, or rice
Enjoy your SouthWest Pork Chops
Remember, almost all recipes can be adjusted (ours and others). If you find this recipe to have a bit too much “heat” skip the cayenne pepper. You can also go the opposite direction (add heat) by using an extra 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon more of cayenne pepper.
