What You Need

Pork chops and apples can be cooked in any pressure cooker. This time I made it in a Cosori multi-cooker to test it out, but I’ve also made it in a Ninja Foodi 15-in-1 multi-cooker as well as an Instant Pot before.

For exact ingredients and measurements, scroll down to the recipe card at the bottom of the post, where you can also print it out.

Pork Chops

I used 4 pork chops, you could also use pork steaks.

Bramley Apples

I used two Bramley apples but you could also use another tart apple like a Granny Smith. I peeled, sliced and cored the apples.

Other ingredients included onion, garlic, dried thyme, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar and chicken stock (see recipe card at the bottom for exact measurements).

Making It

Optionally season both sides of the pork chops with a little salt and pepper. Add some oil to the insert bowl of the pressure cooker and switch to the sear/sauté mode.

Depending on the size of your multi-cooker you may need to do it in batches.

When the oil is hot, add the pork chops and sear them on both sides, about 2 minutes on each side should be enough.

Remove the pork chops and set to one side.

Add the chopped onions and crushed garlic to the pressure cooker and saute for about 2 to 3 minutes until the onions are soft and translucent. Add the dried thyme and stir.

Pour in a little chicken stock to deglaze the base, using a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits. Leave the brown bits in the base of the pot as they add more flavour to the dish.

Stir in the Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, and brown sugar.

Return the pork chops to the pot and add the slices of apple.

Put the lid on the pressure cooker and choose the pressure cooker function. Cook on high pressure for 10 minutes.

Once the cooking time is up, let the pressure cooker naturally release for 10 minutes, then do a quick release for any remaining pressure.

Carefully open the lid. Serve alongside your favourite sides, rice or potatoes work well (especially mashed potatoes!)
