BBQ Pork Chops


  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 bone-in pork chops
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup BBQ sauce
  • In a small bowl combine the Spice Mixture ingredients and use to season both sides of the pork chops.
  • Add olive oil to the Instant Pot. Using the display panel select the SAUTÉ function.
  • When oil gets hot, brown the meat on both sides, 3-4 minutes per side. Meat will not be cooked through. Do not crowd the pot--you may have to work in batches. Transfer browned meat to a shallow dish and cover loosely with foil.
  • Add broth to the pot and deglaze by using a wooden spoon to scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pot.
  • Put the meat back into to the pot.
  • Turn the pot off by selecting CANCEL , then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  • Using the display panel select the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 7 minutes and adjust to LOW PRESSURE.
  • When the time is up, let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release the remaining pressure.
  • Remove the pork chops to a foil-lined baking sheet and brush with bbq sauce. Set the pan under the broiler until meat is caramelized and bubbly, 3-4 minutes. Serve immediately.
