4 Tablespoons Butter,

2 apples,

4 tablespoons brown sugar,

1 tablespoon cinnamon, to taste,

1 t-spoon nutmeg, to taste,

4 pork chops,

1/2 cup water

Salt and pepper, to taste.


1. Set your Instant Pot to sauté. As it warms up, cut up the apples and set aside.

2. Next, combine brown sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon in a bowl.

3. Pour the brown sugar over the apples. Make sure that you stir well and coat all of the apples.

4. Add butter to the Instant Pot. After the butter has melted, add the apples. Sauté them for 4 minutes. Be sure to stir occasionally so that the apples don’t stick to the bottom of the pot.

The pork chops came out tender and the apples gave them a lot of flavor. The apples made the house smell amazing. I paired this with baked seasoned red potatoes and carrots. Rosebud wasn’t a big fan of the pork chops, but she’s not a big meat eater. This recipe was fairly simple to make and I’d cook this again.
