Instant Pot Pork Chops and Apple Sauce is an easy gluten free dinner recipe. This delicious dish is all cooked together in the Instant Pot.

I used boneless rib chops but you could use any type of boneless pork chop.

Before turning on the Instant Pot I peeled and sliced the apples.  

I find it more efficient to have everything ready beforehand that you want to place in your Instant Pot because everything moves along quickly.

When my apples were ready I chose the Sauce less function on my Instant Pot and added the olive oil.

 I sprinkled a pinch of salt and pepper on the pork chops.

When it had heated I browned the pork chops on both sides.  It only took a couple of minutes.

When browned I removed the pork chops to a plate and added in the apple juice and used it to scrape any brown bits from the bottom of the pot.

I then pushed the cancel button on the Instant Pot.  I added the trivet and returned my pork chops to the pot.

The apples were poured in on top of the pork chops.

Then I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook High for 3 minutes.

When the Instant Pot was done cooking, I allowed it to Natural Release for 5 minutes.

Then I turned the steam release handle to the venting position to finish with a Quick Release.

I removed the lid from the Instant Pot.

After everything is cooked.

I then carefully removed the pork chops and trivet leaving the apples behind.

Now it is time to add the cinnamon and the sugar.

Making the apple sauce.

I used a potato masher to create the apple sauce.
