  • 1 cup pineapple juice from 15-ounce can of pineapple tidbits
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup pineapple tidbits, plus more, if desired


  • Add olive oil and pork chops to the Instant Pot, and top evenly with sea salt, ginger, garlic powder and minced onions
  • Pour pineapple juice around the sides and over the pork chops, then add the BBQ sauce and brown sugar. Do not stir.

  • After 8 minutes, do a natural release for 5 minutes, then do quick release until pin drops
  • Remove pork chops to a large platter, cover, and let rest
  • Hit SAUTE to boil and thicken sauce for about 5 minutes, or add a cornstarch slurry or extra BBQ sauce and boil for even for thicker sauce (optional)

Recipe was made in an 8-quart electric pressure cooker, using thick boneless pork chops and Heinz Hawaii sweet and smoky BBQ sauce
To make pork chops in a 6-quart Instant Pot, reduce pineapple juice to ½ cup. 
For thinner chops, pressure cook for 5 to 6 minutes.
