Ingredients:

  • 6 bone-in center cut pork chops, about 1/2 inch thick
  • kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 - 24 oz jar chunky salsa

Directions:

  1. Season pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. Add olive oil to Instant Pot and turn on sauté setting. When oil is hot, brown pork chops 1 or 2 at a time.
  3. Cook each pork chop for about 1-2 minutes per side. Work in batches until all pork chops are browned.
