Instructions
  1. Add 2 tbsp butter to the Instant Pot. Using the display panel select the SAUTE function and adjust to MORE or HIGH.
  2. When butter melts, brown the meat on both sides, 2-3 minutes per side. Meat will not be cooked through. Do not crowd the pot--you may have to work in batches. Transfer browned meat to a shallow dish and cover loosely with foil.
  3. Add water to the pot and deglaze by using a wooden spoon to scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pot.
  4. Put the meat back into to the pot, top with remaining 6 tbsp butter and sprinkle ranch packet over the top.
  5. Turn the pot off by selecting CANCEL, then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  6. Using the display panel select the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK function*. Use the +/- keys to program the Instant Pot for 3 minutes and adjust to LOW PRESSURE.
  7. When the time is up, let the pressure naturally release for 5 minutes, then quick-release the remaining pressure.
  8. Carefully remove the meat from the pot to a serving plate and cover loosely with foil.
  9. (Optional) Drop arugula or spinach into the pot and stir, just until wilted.
  10. Serve pork chops on a bed of greens drizzled with remaining sauce.
Recipe Notes

    Chips were nice and tender. Used left over cooking liquid to make rice.. Adjust liquids as needed depending on amount of rice you are making.

    Super simple, super easy, super fast, and it was a hit with the whole family. It has been requested to be made again.

    Delicious! I used 3 boneless loin chops (TW .70 lbs), cut the butter to 4tbs after browning and .50

    Sorry …accidently uploaded too soon.
    .50 oz of the seasoning. The cooking times were the same, eventhough the Instant Pot Lux series doesn’t have a low pressure setting.

    I’ve made this twice so far…really good! I had rice I made the day before and dumped in with the buttery goodness that was left after cooking…takes quite a bit of rice but cooked on saute til rice was got and not as soupy.

    Recipe was “okay” – recommend adding something or dojng a different seasoning for more flavor. Pressure cooked asparagus and mushrooms for 1 minute after in same water/sauce to use as side.

    This was very tasty! I used a small bag of baby spinach in the recipe and modified for two people.

    Very easy and pretty tasty, and wilting the greens in the broth was a great idea. Will definitely make it again.

    My son, an extremely picky eater, told me he liked these enough to have them again. So, they go into rotation. So good. Easy, quick and tasty.

    Very good. My very first recipe i have tried in my instant pot. Next time i would add onions ans/or garlic .

    This was so easy and tasty. I didn’t have any arugula so I microwaved some frozen chopped spinach and boiled a little over 1/2 cup of dried orzo. After the chops cooked I stirred in the cooked spinach. I let it simmer on low saute for about a minute then stirred in the cooked orzo. Add the pork back to the pot to rewarm. Served in shallow bowls with shredded parm. Next time I may add some garlic too.

    I didn’t have dry ranch seasoning, so I opted to use ranch dressing straight out of the bottle. It turned out great! Very yummy.

    Two regrets.
    1) I did not think about using the sauce in the pot on the chops and the rice until i was almost full.
    2) Curse you, Walmart, for not having thicker cut chops. Next time i am going to Sam’s Club or a butcher.

    I was skeptical at first; but this was delicious.
    I followed a suggestion on here and added a sliced onion before the pressure cook phase.
    Instead of the water, i used 1/4 cup of white wine and 1/4 cup of chicken stock.
    Ill do this one again.

    I made this using knorr vegetable soup mix. I had no ranch powder. The flavors were incredible.
