Spicy Peach Sauce

  • 2 cups peaches cut into ½-inch cubes
  • ¼ cup basil packed
  • 1 jalapeno finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp. honey*
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ¼ tsp. Salt

Instant Pot Pork Chops

  • 2-3 Tbsp. olive oil divided
  • 1.25 lbs. pork chops boneless, center cut, thin**
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 small red onion finely diced
  • 3 Tbsp. chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp. tapioca starch
  • 1 Tbsp. warm water

Basil & Peach Salsa

  • ¾ cup peaches cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 1 Tbsp. basil finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. red onion finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt to taste


  1. Combine all peach sauce ingredients in a high-speed blender or food processor. Blend for 1-2 minutes, or until completely smooth.
  2. Set the Instant Pot to the saute function. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil in the pot and place pork chops in a single layer. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt. Brown for 1-2 minutes per side and then remove from the pot.
  3. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil and add chopped red onions. Saute for 4-5 minutes, or until almost cooked through.
  4. Add broth to deglaze the bottom of the pot, making sure to scrape any pieces that are stuck.
  5. Add peach sauce and pork chops to the Instant Pot. Lift up the chops so there is adequate peach sauce beneath them. Seal the Instant Pot with the lid, turn the pressure release valve to sealed, and set the pressure to High for 6 minutes.* Allow a natural pressure release for 5 minutes.
  6. In a small bowl whisk together the cornstarch and warm water. Remove pork chops from Instant Pot and add slurry water. Whisk until the sauce is thickened up.

  7. While pork chops are cooking, combine peach salsa ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and toss to combine.
  8. Serve pork chops over rice or cauliflower rice with peach salsa and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*Replace with 5 drops liquid stevia if on a Whole30 diet.

*Mine were roughly 3/4 inch thick. If you are using bone-in pork chops or thick-cut pork chops, you will want to increase your cook time to 12-20 minutes, depending on their thickness.
