Balsamic Pork Pizzaiola

This past weekend, we moved into our new home. It was a long but exciting weekend. Admittedly, we ate out or ordered in a few times, much more than we normally would. Then, Sunday afternoon, we realized our stovetop was not working.

So, today’s recipe came from a necessity to be creative with our cooking plans. While we wait for the stove to be fixed under our home warranty, we’ll be using our Instant Pot a lot this week—Tomato SoupSplit Asparagus Soup, maybe an adapted version of our Hearty Stovetop Chili, and we might even make this recipe again. We hope you like it, too!

Ingredients
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
4 bone-in, center-cut pork loin chops
1 medium onion, halved and sliced
1/2 tsp herbs de provence
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 14-oz can diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1-2 Tbsp fresh Italian parsley, chopped, for garnish

Method

Warm oil in the Instant Pot on sauté mode. Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Sear pork chops, about 3 minutes on each side. Then remove them and set aside on a plate.

Add onions and herbs de provence to Instant Pot and sauté until onions are soft. Pour in the balsamic vinegar and sauté for another 2 minutes.

Return pork chops to the Instant Pot. Add tomatoes and sprinkle in the red pepper flakes. Set the Instant Pot to pressure cook for 30 minutes.
