Instant Pot Cinnamon-Apple Pork Chops

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 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 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.

Equipment

  • Instant Pot

Ingredients
  

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 1-inch-thick boneless pork chops
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Granny Smith apples sliced
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 sage leaves minced
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup water

Instructions
 

  • Set the Instant Pot to “sauté, medium heat.” Once it reads “hot,” add the oil and pork chops, sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper, and brown for 5 minutes, turning them over halfway through.
  • Transfer the pork chops to a plate. Add the apples, cinnamon stick, sage, pumpkin pie spice, applesauce, and water to the pot. Mix to combine and return the pork chops to the pot.
  • Cover and cook on high pressure for 10 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes, then quick-release the remaining pressure.
  • Remove the Instant Pot Cinnamon-Apple Pork Chops and half the apples to a plate to rest. Set the pot to “sauté, medium heat” and cook to boil down the sauce until thickened, about 10 minutes. Pour the sauce over the pork chops and apples and serve.
