Pork Chops

  • 4 frozen ButcherBox boneless pork chops (at least 1-inch thick)
  • 2 tbsp avocado or canola oil
  • 1 tsp dried parsley (or 1 tablespoon fresh)
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme leaves
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 3/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne


  • 2 tbsp avocado or canola oil
  • 1 medium onion (peeled & sliced root to tip)
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 1/4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp corn starch


  • Preheat a multi cooker or Instant Pot to sauté.
  • Drizzle or rub pork chops with oil; set aside.
  • In a bowl combine the parsley, seasoned salt, thyme, pepper, paprika, and cayenne. Set aside 1 teaspoon of the mixture for the onions.
  • Rub or sprinkle the frozen pork chops all over with remaining spice mixture.
  • When the cooker is "hot", add 2 tablespoons oil and the onion and garlic.
  • Cook and stir until the onion is translucent and starting to caramelize, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the reserved teaspoon of spice mixture and stir to combine.
  • Add the broth, then place trivet into InstantPot. Add the pork chops to the pot on top of the trivet; they can overlap if needed. Seal the lid on, turn the valve to sealing, and select Manual or Pressure Cook for a cook time of 8 minutes. It will take about 10 minutes to come to pressure and begin counting down.
  • When the cook time is over, allow the pressure to release naturally for 8 to 10 minutes, then open the valve and release the remaining pressure.
  • Remove pork chops to a plate and cover with foil to rest.
  • Turn the Instant Pot to sauté. Whisk together cream and corn starch and stir into juices in the multi cooker. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until gravy has thickened. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.
  • Serve gravy over pork chops and mashed potatoes. Garnish with extra parsley or thyme if desired.
