Super Easy Slow Cooker Pork Chops

This could quite possibly be the easiest slow cooker pork we have ever made

I’m inspired by this dinner from my childhood

You know those dinners from when you were a kid that you miss?

My Mom would oven bake pork chops, add Chinese Duck Sauce and bake and bake and bake

  This was such a simple, basic dish but the sauce became so rich and the pork so delicious, that I never forgot it

   We decided to make this even easier by utilizing the Instant Pot as a slow cooker

A little bit of work up front and a big payout at the end!

That’s right, super easy on a baseball-soccer-homework kind of night

We have 6 boneless pork chops to start with


We are going to sprinkle these with some kosher salt and ground black pepper


Since we are using the Instant Pot we have the option of browning the pork with the saute function

If using a traditional slow cooker I would recommend searing the pork in a pan first though it isn’t a show stopper

We heated 2 tablespoons of olive oil in the pot and added in half the chops

Depending on the size of the the pot sear in batches

Add a bit of salt and pepper to the other side as they sear


Sear for 2-4 minutes until they actually release from the pan easily and sear the other side


Remove and add in the other chops and repeat the sear

Set the pork aside


Once all the chops are seared layer them back in the Instant Pot


Sprinkle them with some garlic powder and onion powder


Next we will need about 2 1/2 cups of duck sauce


Pour this in and spread evenly over the chops


Slow cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low 6-8 hours


Let’s take a look at this delicious pork!


Remove the chops gently (they are fork tender) and set aside


Sprinkle about a tablespoon of cornstarch onto the sauce in the pot give it a whisk and hit the saute button


The sauce will start to tighten up and thicken


We like to dip the chops back in the sauce to coat them and serve with some white rice and fresh chopped scallions!

Simple and delicious!!
