Ingredients

RANCH SEASONING MIX

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried chives
  • salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

FOR THE PORK CHOPS

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 (about 1 pound) boneless pork chops, 1-inch thick
  • 1 teaspoon ranch seasoning mix, or to taste
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-1/4 cup low sodium chicken broth

FOR THE CREAM SAUCE

  • 1 cup heavy cream, you can also use Half & Half or Evaporated Milk
  • 2 teaspoons Ranch Seasoning Mix

FOR GARNISH

  • dried dill weed and dried chives, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Prepare Ranch Seasoning Mix by combining all ingredients together in a small mixing bowl. (Store-bought Ranch Seasoning Mix will also work)

  2. Grease pork chops with cooking spray.
  3. Measure out 1 teaspoon of the prepared ranch seasoning mix (or to taste) and season the pork chops.
  4. Set the Instant Pot to "Sauté"; add olive oil and butter.
  5. Once the butter is melted and hot, sear chops for about 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Sear 2 pork chops at a time.
  6. Remove pork chops from Instant Pot; set aside.
  7. Add minced garlic to the pot and cook for 30 seconds.
  8. Pour 1/4 cup chicken broth and use a wooden spoon to scrape up the bits off the bottom of the pot.
  9. Stir in remaining chicken broth and add pork chops to the pot in the liquid.
  10. Seal the lid, and cook on “Manual” at HIGH PRESSURE for 7 minutes.
  11. Do a Natural Pressure Release for 12 minutes. After 12 minutes, do a Quick Release. Pork Chops are done when internal temperature reaches 145F.
  12. Open the lid and remove pork chops to a plate; keep them covered.
  13. Set the Instant Pot to “Sauté”; bring remaining mixture to a simmer.

  14. Whisk in heavy cream.

  15. Add in 2 teaspoons of Ranch Seasoning Mix. You can use less or more – adjust to your taste. Start with one teaspoon, taste, and see if you want more.
  16. Bring to a gentle simmer for 3 to 4 minutes, or until sauce has slightly thickened.

  17. Add the chops and released juices back into the sauce; allow to simmer for 1 minute, or until heated through.

  18. Garnish with dried herbs and serve.
