Print [2]



  • 4 pork chops, boneless or bone-in, around 3/4 inches thick
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup ghee (or sub another healthy cooking fat)
  • 1/2 cup local honey
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley


  1. Season your pork chops with sea salt and pepper. Melt ghee in the stainless steel bowl of your Instant Pot using the “Saute” feature.
  2. Sear the pork chops on each side for 1 minute
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients, press the “Keep Warm/Cancel” button and stir
  4. Secure the lid, close the pressure valve, and press the “Poultry” button (high pressure, 15 minutes)
  5. Allow the cooking cycle to complete
  6. Quick release the pressure valve and remove the lid when safe to do so
  7. Serve warm


I also included a thinly sliced onion and sauteed it first with the ghee. You can include this or omit as desired.
