    On 6-quart Instant Pot®, select SAUTE; adjust to normal. Melt butter in insert. Add mushrooms, onions, thyme, pepper and salt; cook 11 to 13 minutes or until mushrooms are lightly browned and onions soften. Select CANCEL. Stir in broth and soy sauce; continue to stir 30 to 60 seconds to remove browned bits from bottom of insert.

    Add pork chops to mixture in insert. Secure lid; set pressure valve to SEALING. Select MANUAL; cook on high pressure 2 minutes. Select CANCEL. Set pressure valve to VENTING to quick-release pressure. Internal temperature of pork should be at least 145°F using instant-read thermometer. If pork is not done, select MANUAL and cook on high pressure 1 to 2 minutes longer. Select CANCEL. Set pressure valve to VENTING to quick-release pressure.

    Remove pork chops, and place on plate; cover with foil to keep warm.

    In small bowl, beat whipping cream and cornstarch with whisk. Select SAUTE; adjust to normal. Heat liquid to simmering. Beat in cornstarch mixture with whisk; cook 30 to 60 seconds, beating frequently, until thickened. Select CANCEL. Serve over pork chops with potatoes. Top with parsley.

  • Be sure to purchase thin bone-in pork chops. Thicker cut chops won’t get done in this short cook time.
  • For an easy shortcut, purchase presliced mushrooms.
