Lightly sweet and savory pork chops done in the Ninja Foodi

Get ready for a mouthful of lightly sweet and savory pork chops done in the Pressure Cooker/Ninja Foodi. If you are looking for simple, yet flavorful- you came to the right place. I am all about simple and of course flavorful tasty food. I mean who really isn’t?

Most of the time pork chops can turn out dry. Not that they taste bad, they are just dry and blan inside.

I wanted to try something a little different that would perhaps make them a tad more juicy inside. I think this recipe did the trick. Considering I just made it up as I went along truthfully. I knew we were having pork chops tonight for sure.


Brown Sugar Bourban seasoning HERE .

With a hint of spice and brown sugar,  and pineapple in some shape or form would complement the meal. Keep in mind when using seasoning, spices, and rubs while pressure cooking, you always need more than with the traditional way of cooking. The pressure cooker cooks faster and will not penetrate the flavorings the same if you only use a little. Nothing worse than bland tasting meat. Don’t be shy with your seasonings.

Have you ever had a pineapple under the broiler? Oh my, it’s really good and I hope you try it.

Pin it, make it! ENJOY.

Pressure Cooker Sweet and Savory Pork Chops

Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 4


  • 4-5 Whole Boneless Pork Loin Chops Thick
  • Generous Pork Rub
  • 1 TBSP Liquid Smoke
  • 1 Can Pineapple Slices or Chunks
  • 1 Dash Kosher Salt
  • 1 Pour Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Stick Butter


  • First pat and blot down chops with a paper towel to remove excess wetness.
  • Drizzle lightly olive oil on both sides.
  • Sprinkle on a very generous amount of rub, both front and back. Kneed in the rub with your hands and knuckles being sure to penetrate the rub into the pork chops. (You may let sit over night refrigerated, in lieu of a marinade and make the next day)
  • Turn your pot on saute mode. Add one half stick of butter to the pot and let warm up on normal mode.
  • Add your pork chops in and change to high setting saute.
  • Saute both front and back until lightly brown. You may then add in the liquid smoke. Liquid smoke has an abundance of flavor so for that you do not need a lot of.
  • Remove chops and place on trivet. This is not a necessity but I prefer to have pork chops on the trivet. I don't want the pork chop too tender. I like it where I can cut it with a knife, but effortlessly.
  • Add one cup of water and some juice from the pineapple into the pot.
  • Lower down trivet. Set to manual for 20 minutes. Once that beeps, do a quick release.
  • Then Place pineapple rings on top of chops, and a little more pineapple juice.  Set  the NINJA at 390 on Broil. and lower lid. Broil for about 2-3 minutes until your pineapple is golden brown. 
  • If you don't have the Ninja, simply use the oven and line a cookie pan with foil, set your pork chops on the cookie sheet and do the same as above. If you only have the Instant Pot, the Mealthy CrispLid works great in the end for this step as well.
  • When you remove the pork chops and pineapple, you may add more pineapple juice on top for moisture.
  • Serve with a side of rice, beans or veggies of choice. ENJOY!
