  • 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!


  • Please be sure to push the rice down under the cooking liquid to ensure your rice cooks. 
  • Uses 1/4 in or thinner pork chops to ensure they cook in the same time as the rice.
