Instant Pot Pork Chops with a Mushroom Cream Sauce

Low Carb IP Pork Chops with a Mushroom Cream Sauce

I am a crockpot love but my instant pot is a close second. One of the things I love about the instant pot is that I can brown and cook in the same pot. If I use my crockpot, I have to brown on the stove and then add to the crock, This dinner uses the sauté function to start and finish the meal. It is really easy to make. The creamy sauce is thickened by using xanthan gum. You should be able to find it at Walmart or you can get it from Amazon.

This low carb pork chop recipe is so good.

My teen who isn’t a mushroom fan picked off the mushrooms but said everything else was really good. This is a really flavorful and tender pork chop dish. The instant pot really helps make the pork chops tender. This comes together so quickly, you will be surprised at the amazing taste with such little hands on work. The cream sauce would be lovely served over mashed cauliflower if you like mashed cauliflower. I would serve it over mashed potatoes for my teens. Whatever sides you choose, I am sure it will be loved by your family.
