  • Instant Pot
  • small bowl


  • 6 pork chops (I used boneless center cut pork chops, about 1/2" thick and weighing 6 ounces each)
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • ½ cup beef broth
  • 3 Tablespoons butter cut into slices
  • 1 packet dry onion soup mix (1 ounce)
  • ½ teaspoon thyme
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • pinch of chili powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 onions thinly sliced
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms
  • Tablespoons corn starch
  • Tablespoons cold water


  • Place pork chops at the bottom of the Instant Pot.
  • Pour apple juice and beef broth on top of pork chops, then top with butter.
  • Sprinkle dry onion soup mix, all the seasonings, onions, and fresh mushrooms on top of the pork chops.
  • Put your lid on the pot and move the VALVE to sealing (not venting). Press the MANUAL (or PRESSURE COOK) button and set timer for 6 minutes.
  • The pot will come to pressure (it will take about 10-15 minutes) and then it will begin cooking.
  • When timer is finished, let pressure do a NATURAL RELEASE (it will take at least 20 minutes).
  • When the pin drops down and all of the pressure is released, remove the lid and check the pork chops with a meat thermometer to make sure that the internal temperature has reached 145 degrees.
  • Remove pork chops from the Instant Pot and cover, then set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix together 1 1/2 Tablespoons cornstarch with 1 1/2 Tablespoons of water. Pour into the Instant Pot with the remaining liquid.
  • Press the SAUTE button and let the liquid come to a boil, whisking the cornstarch mixture in. Cook until liquid becomes thick enough to make a gravy.
  • Serve pork chops topped with onions, mushrooms, and gravy.
