Brown the pork chops in the butter, oil, or ghee.
As you flip it over to the second side to brown, add the green onions.
Take the chops out when they're seared, and add in the rice. By this time, the chops should have rendered a little of their fat to coat the rice. Stir to mix well.
Add the pork chops, water, and the salt and pepper. I of course, pepper liberally but you do what works for you.
NOTE: It is EXTREMELY important to deglaze the pot after the pork chops are browned. If you don't do that, you're likely to get a BURN notice. This is an excellent safety feature of the Instant Pot.
If you have a lot of brown fond at the bottom of the pot, this is a good thing for flavor, not a good thing for burn.
If you have any concerns about this, pour in 1/4 cup of water, and use it to scrape out the brown, let this water evaporate and then continue cooking.
Cook at high pressure for 5-6 minutes, and let it release pressure naturally.
Serve and enjoy!
