This Instant Pot pork chops cooked in a mouthwatering creamy mushroom sauce will make you wonder why you ever made pork chops the old-fashioned way all these years! This delicious dish is from Dr. Karen S. Lee’s latest cookbook Keto Cooking With Your Instant Pot.



  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 4 ( 6 oz or 170 g each) boneless pork loin chops
  • 2 strips of uncured bacon, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp (15 g) butter and more as needed
  • ½ medium onion, sliced
  • 12 oz (340 g) white mushrooms, sliced ¼” (6 mm) thick
  • ½ cup (120 ml) white wine
  • ½ cup (120 ml) full-fat heavy cream
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried tarragon
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp (8 g) tapioca flour, more if needed
  • ¼ cup (15 g) fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped, reserve 1 tbsp (4 g) for garnish


In a small bowl, mix the garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, sea salt, and black pepper. Sprinkle both sides of the pork chops with the garlic powder mixture and set aside.

Turn on the Instant Pot by pressing “Sauté” and set to “More.” Insert the inner pot and wait until the panel says “Hot.” Add bacon and sauté for 3 minutes and add the pork chops, two at a time, and brown both sides or 2 minutes per side. Add butter at this point if needed.

Transfer the pork chops to a plate and set aside. Add onions and mushrooms and sauté until onion is soft. Add white wine and stir and scrape the bottom for one minute. Place the pork chops on top of the onions and mushrooms.

Close the lid tightly and move the steam release handle to “Sealing.” Press “Cancel, then,” “Pressure Cooker/Manual” button and set the timer for 20 minutes on HIGH pressure. When the timer ends, you will hear a beeping sound. Allow the Instant Pot to cool down naturally until the float valve drops down.

Press “Cancel” and open the lid. Take out the pork chops on plates to be served and let rest. Meanwhile, add the rest of the ingredients in the inner pot except parsley, press“Sauté” and stir for 2 minutes or until it thickens. Add more tapioca flour if needed, depending on how much liquid was produced from the meat and vegetables from cooking. Top the pork chops with the mushroom gravy and garnish with parsley before serving.

    Could you use something other than tapioca flour? Coconut flour?

      Coconut flour wouldn’t thicken it in the same way. You can use arrowroot starch, rice flour or starch, potato starch and they should all work similarly to tapioca.

      For keto, you could use guar gum or Xanthan gum, but only use very small amounts at a time until it thickens. I can’t wait to try this, it looks delicious.

      I used 2 teaspoons of gluten free flour. I pressed the saute button
      The mixture started to bubble. I continually stirred and quickly pushed the cancel button. Gravy was perfect. Plus less carbs.

    Love the sauce, but 20 minutes was too long for the pork in my opinion. Will try again but with maybe half the cooking time

    Made this tonight and it was scrumptious! Company worthy with a few adjustments. I had thick cut chops, but knew 20 minutes was way too much time under pressure. I cooked them for 10 minutes with a 10 minute NPR, and the chops were borderline well done. I recommend 8 minutes for thin cut chops and 10 minutes for thick cut chops followed by a Quick Release. For non-Keto cooking, use a 1-to-1 ratio of corn starch to water slurry to thicken sauce. Also, make sure to taste and adjust seasoning at the end because the dish needs more salt and pepper. Otherwise, the recipe is perfect and deserves ALL THE STARS. Thank you so much for posting this recipe for us to enjoy. This one is going into my regular rotation! Love love love it!

      I think the recipe author meant that you can stir most of it into the finished sauce and then use a little bit for garnishing when serving on a platter or on individual bowls.

    I’ve made this twice now– the sauce is great– but I agree a shorter cooking time is needed. Last time I used 4 fairly thick chups– about 2 pounds all totaled, 20 minutes, natural release– and they were over-cooked and dry– will try again with 10 minutes and quick release as recommended in a comment above, and see
