  • 4-6 pork chops boneless or bone-in - about 1 inch thick
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon mustard seeds
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter unsalted
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup if allergic
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar


  • In a small bowl, combine the dry rub: salt, chili powder, smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, white pepper, brown sugar, and all-purpose flour.
  • Pat dry the pork chops and season with the dry rub mix well on all the sides.
  • Set the Instant Pot to sauté and once hot add the butter.
  • When the butter is melted, add the meat and sear it until browned, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove and set aside. Add the garlic, mustard seeds, and cook stirring for 30 seconds.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of flour, stir well, and continue cooking for 1 minute, or until the flour is slightly browned.
  • Add the broth and scrape the brown bits stuck to the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon.
  • Add the honey and the vinegar, stir well. Taste and adjust for salt and pepper.
  • Return the pork chops back to the pot.
  • Cover the pressure cooker and make sure the valve is pointed to sealed.
  • Cook on HIGH pressure for 7 minutes.
  • Release the pressure naturally for 10 minutes. After that, open the valve to quickly release the remaining pressure.
  • Remove the pork chops from the Instant Pot, place them on a plate, and cover them with foil.
  • If you want the honey garlic sauce thicker, click on Saute and mix in a small bowl 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water until dissolved. Add the slurry to the sauce and cook stirring for 5 minutes, or until thickened.
  • Serve the meat with the honey garlic sauce and fresh chopped parsley.
