  • Replace all browned pork chops to the pot and add chicken broth. Press "OFF" and then add the lid to the instant pot and turn to lock. Cook 5 minutes on the "PRESSURE COOKER" setting. (If you are using boneless chops, reduce this to 3 minutes.)

  • While the pork chops are cooking, in a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, whisk ingredients together for the sauce: ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder and dried mustard.

  • Once pork chops are done cooking, quick release pressure and open. Remove pork chops and reserve 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Discard remaining cooking liquid. Return instant pot back to BROWN/SAUTE function and add other 1 tablespoon olive oil. Saute onion and garlic 2 minutes or until softened and fragrant. Pour in the sauce and the reserved cooking liquid. Simmer 2 minutes, then add pork chops back in. After another 2-3 minutes, pork chops should be well glazed and sauce should have thickened slightly. Serve with rice.
