I love making pork chops for dinner. My preference is the center cut bone-in loin chops because both the bone and the marbling add so much flavor to the meat.

The problem with this cut is that it is often over-cooked. Dry, more like shoe leather than juicy, tender pork. I blame the old public service announcements about the dangers of eating undercooked pork. These days pork only needs to reach 145°F to be safe. (Note that dry overcooked pork is not just an issue with chops. Learn how to deal with this for roasting pork butt and shoulder, and for loins too).

If you have been afflicted by the fear of undercooking pork, I have the answer, the Instant Pot. Cooking at a high temperature for a short amount of time keeps the meat juicy and using the sauté function creates a beautiful golden crust.

MY LATEST RECIPES

The salt and pepper I use to season the chops may seem simple but I think you will agree that the results are anything but plain.

You can serve these with a sprinkling of parsley or try them with your favorite sauce. During the summer, I like to serve them with my Best Ever Barbecue Sauce, cornbread, and baked beans. Or, you can try one of my amazing gravy recipes. The classic gravy is here but I also have one for the instant pot here and this recipe for gravy without drippings will help when making chops for sure since you don’t really get drippings from pork chops.

If you are ready to overcome the over-cooked-pork-chop syndrome, give this method of cooking pork chops a try.
