Braised pork chops in the pressure cooker.

On my quest to shorten my cooking time in the kitchen, tonight’s recipe is a succulent, tender, fall off the bone pork chops cooked on my new pressure cooker. I must say, I love the simplicity but most of all, the easy approach to pressure cooking. Therefore a quick preparation, everything in the pot, close the lid, and voila 30 minutes or so later and your dinner is on the table. How wonderful is that?

I am sharing with all of  you here two way of preparing this dish: stovetop and pressure cooker. By preparing it using the pressure cooker, if you want the sauce to be a bit less liquid, once the lid is off, cook on high heat for a couple of minutes to reduce.

We had an arugula salad with a simple vinaigrette of 1 part vinegar, 3 parts olive oil with salt and pepper. Mashed potatoes are an excellent side dish as well as any vegetables that you have in your refrigerator.
