Smothered Pork Chops With Mushroom Gravy

Smothered Pork Chops with Mushroom Gravy [Instant Pot]

  • Yield: Serves 4-6 people 1x


Units Scale
  • 3 slices bacon, diced
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 46 pork chops
  • salt & pepper to tastes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup beef or bone broth
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 1 can (10.5 oz) low sodium or fat free cream of mushroom soup
  • fresh parsley, chopped for garnish


  1. Plug in the IP and hit SAUTE.
  2. Add the bacon (if using), mushrooms, extra virgin olive oil, onion and garlic. Cook until bacon starts to brown and the mushrooms and onions are translucent.
  3. Season your pork chops on both sides with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  4. Once bacon starts to brown and onion is translucent, add the pork chops, broth and thyme.
  5. Secure the lid of the IP and ensure the valve is set to SEALING.
  6. Press CANCEL to stop the saute setting. Press MANUAL and adjust the time to the number of minutes below on HIGH pressure.
  7. – Fresh thin, bone in – 3 minutes
    – Fresh thin, boneless – 2 minutes
    – Fresh average cut, bone in – 10 minutes
    – Fresh average cut, boneless – 7 minutes
    – Fresh thick, bone in – 12 minutes
    – Fresh thick, boneless – 10 minutes
    – Frozen thin, bone in – 7 minutes
    – Frozen thin, boneless – 5 minutes
    – Frozen average cut, bone in – 15 minutes
    – Frozen average cut, boneless – 12 minutes
    – Frozen thick, bone in – 20 minutes
    – Frozen thick, boneless – 15 minutes
  8. The display will reflect ON while the IP comes to pressure. Allow a few minutes for your IP to come to pressure.
  9. Once at pressure, the display will reflect the number of minutes you initially set and will begin to countdown to 0 minutes.
  10. When the IP beeps after pressure cooking for the number of minutes you initially set, allow your IP to naturally release pressure. While naturally releasing pressure (also known as NRP or NR), the display will reflect numbers counting up from 1. The numbers indicate how many minutes the IP has stopped cooking since it beeped (or how many minutes it has been naturally releasing pressure). No need to touch your IP while it naturally releases pressure completely.
  11. The pin at the top of your IP will drop when all pressure has been released and it’s safe to open.
  12. Open up your IP when the pin has dropped (allow a few minutes for this to happen).
  13. Add the condensed cream of mushroom soup and stir in to thicken; about 3-5 minutes. The already hot pot will warm the soup to incorporate it thoroughly without adjusting any settings. No need to press any buttons on the IP. Alternately, you can combine a mixture of 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl and stir in. Then add 1/4 cup of heavy cream.
  14. Serve with your choice of sides and garnish with fresh parsley.
