Instant Pot Pork Chops and Gravy

Pork Chops and Gravy are a comfort food classic around my house. The warm, enticing smell always whets our appetites and we look forward to gathering around the table, dishing up good food and (usually) delightful conversation. I love to make our easy Crock Pot Pork Chops but on extremely hectic days, it’s so nice to just throw ingredients into the Instant Pot and have a beautiful supper ready in a fraction of the time.

This recipe is a favorite because it uses simple, easy to find ingredients. All you need are some beautiful boneless pork chops, oil for frying and some salt. Then you’ll use a packet each of onion soup mix and Hidden Valley Ranch mix, a couple of cans of cream of mushroom soup and water. That’s it! Serve over rice or mashed potatoes with a green salad and some veggies and you have a flavorful and satisfying supper any night of the week.

Suggestions for this Recipe:

  • To get tender, fall-apart pork chops, cook for about 30 minutes in the Instant Pot and allow to slow release for about 10 minutes. If you’re using a thicker cut of meat, bump the time up by five minutes. Thinner slices can be cooked for 25 minutes.
  • You can use canned cream of mushroom soup for this recipe. Just open and pour. But if you’re looking for a healthier option or don’t have any on hand you can make your own! Try our Homemade Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup recipe. It is so creamy and delicious and very easy to make. Our Cream of Chicken Soup is delicious in this recipe too.
  • Following the directions in the recipe card below, make sure to sear your meat on all sides. This can be done easily in the Instant Pot.
  • If you’re using frozen pork chops, just sear them as directed below. However you may want to increase your cook time by just a couple of minutes.
  • Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to five days.Pork chops with potatoes

Servings 4


  • 6-Quart Instant Pot Pressure Cooker (See Instant Pot Note Below)


  • 4 boneless pork chops (about 2 pounds)
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 (1 ounce) packet onion soup mix
  • 2 (10.5 ounce) cans Cream of Mushroom Soup (or make your own, see notes above)
  • 1 (1 ounce) package Hidden Valley Ranch mix
  • 1 cup water
  • salt and pepper (optional, to taste)


  • Pat pork chops dry and lightly season with salt, to taste. Set aside. 
  • Press “sauté” function on the Instant Pot and add oil to coat the bottom on the pot. 
  • When oil is hot, add pork chops (you may have to do this in batches) and sear on each side for about 3-5 minutes.  
  • Place all the seared pork chops back in the Instant Pot. Sprinkle onion soup mix over the pork chops. 
  • Add cream of mushroom soup over the top of the pork chops and then the ranch mix over top of the soup  (no need to stir in– you can stir it in after they are done cooking). 
  • Pour 1 cup water around the sides (this will make it easier for the IP to steam up and seal), place the lid on the Instant Pot and set tab to “sealing”.
  • Press “manual” and set for high pressure for 30 minutes then allow to slow release for 10 minutes. 
  • Do a quick release and remove lid. Remove pork chops from Instant Pot and set aside. 
  • Using a whisk, stir together the sauce in the Instant Pot, forming a gravy. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Spoon gravy over pork chops and serve with rice or potatoes. 


Instant Pot Note: We use a 6-quart Instant Pot brand pressure cooker that we bought in 2016. Different or newer versions may be more sensitive to the “BURN” notice. If you are concerned about the burn notice, please refer to the Instant Pot webpage about Overheat Protection, found HERE.

    Really good, pork fell apart. Good flavor. Would have given 5 stars but lots of sodium in the recipe.

    1. 5 stars
      This recipe was so easy, I made mind with 6 thin boneless pork chops and only used one can of mushroom soup and it turn out yummy yummy. The pork chops was some moist and fall a apart when you took them out. My husband loves it and now this recipe will be add to make more.

  2. 5 stars
    My family LOVED this dinner! I wasn’t sure about how the ingredients would taste all together but it was delicious! The best part is that my kids loved it and want it again. It was quick and easy to make.

    1. Hi Callie- So glad you liked these pork chops! It’s always a win if the kids are asking for more lol! Thanks for the 5-stars!

    2. This looks really delicious. Can this recipe be doubled and if so, would you double the same amount of water also? Thank you for your suggestions.

      1. Yes, absolutely. If it were me, I actually wouldn’t double the water. If it needs to be thinned out at the end you can add some milk at the end. It is easier to thin out than to thicken. Hope this helps!
