Apple and Maple Glazed Pork Chops

Pressure cooking pork chops renders them moist and tender, a clear winner over the often-dry pan-fried chops. Finishing them with a rich glaze makes them an easy weeknight favorite.

Makes 4 servings


To prevent your chops from curling up at the edges, before browning make a few tiny cuts in the fat and skin around the edges, without cutting into the meat.
Add more stock in step 2 if required by your cooker to reach pressure. In step 3, you may need to increase the simmering time to thicken your glaze.


  • 4 boneless pork loin chops, about 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground 
black pepper
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil (15 mL)
  • 1⁄2 cup ready-to-use 
 chicken broth (125 mL)
  • 1⁄2 cup apple cider vinegar (125 mL)
  • 1⁄2 tsp onion powder (2 mL)
  • 1⁄2 cup apple jelly (125 mL)
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup (45 mL)
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard (30 mL)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce (15 mL)


1. Season pork with salt and pepper. Heat the pressure cooker on High/Sauté/Brown. Add oil and heat until shimmering. Add pork and cook, turning once, for 5 to 7 minutes or until browned. Using tongs, transfer pork to a plate. Cancel cooking and discard any remaining oil in cooker.

2. Add stock, vinegar and onion powder to the cooker, stirring well. Return pork and any accumulated juices to the cooker. Close and lock the lid. Cook on high pressure for 7 to 8 minutes. Quickly release the pressure. Check to make sure an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of a pork chop registers at least 160°F (71°C) for medium; if more cooking time is needed, reset to high pressure for 1 minute. Using tongs, transfer chops to a clean plate. Discard cooking liquid.

3. Add apple jelly, maple syrup, mustard and soy sauce to the cooker, stirring well. Heat the cooker on High/Sauté/Brown. Cook, stirring, for 3 to 5 minutes or until glaze is just bubbling and is a medium caramel color, and a rubber spatula just starts to make trails on the bottom of the pot.

4. Return chops and any accumulated juices to the cooker and turn to coat in glaze.

5. Transfer chops to a serving platter and pour the remaining glaze over top. Serve immediately.

I have been interested on buying my own pressure cooker but the husband has some doubts about its safety;but I guess I should try convincing him again, since it looks like it is convenient and safe to use.

I don’t have an electric pressure cooker. I think I can make some of these delicious recipes work on my stovetop version. It is a great way to get dinner on the table quickly.

I love using my pressure cooker for quick easy recipes. I don’t eat pork as often but I love how that glaze looks on this piece of meat. I definitely wanna try this next time. Saving this for later.

I agree on ppan fry making dry. Thanks for an alternative.

Marisa Franca July 22, 2018 - 3:56 pm

We don’t have a pressure cooker although I can see the advantages of having one. Great meals on the table that are tender and tasty in no time at all. Speaking of tender and tasty — your pork chops look amazing. The glaze on them sounds so delicious — we’re going to have to try it only using a different method.

swathi July 22, 2018 - 9:39 pm
