These Instant Pot Cinnamon-Apple Pork Chops are a game changer! So flavorful, and might I add- Metabolism Boosting!
My new cookbook LOSE WEIGHT WITH YOUR INSTANT POT is filled with all natural, metabolism boosting recipes for weight loss and weight maintenance, like these Instant Pot Cinnamon-Apple Pork Chops. Because cooking in an Instant Pot has become the new kitchen “craze” it was natural that Lose Weight By Eating would address this new cooking appliance, and create weight loss Instant Pot recipes.
These Instant Pot Cinnamon-Apple Pork Chops are a fantastic way to take advantage of fall flavors. If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, you can substitute 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger. Or, you can just skip the spice mixture and add a second cinnamon stick.
