    Used granulated sugar instead and added Trader Joe’s 21 seasoning salute to the the rub, turned out great although it wasn’t spectacular, it needed a little something like a lemon juice, will definitely try this again

    I used powdered Ranch Dressing mix for the rub, can't use sugar at all. After natural release I removed the chops and added a bit cold corn starch liquid to the "gravy" It came out very good. The Chops were super tender.

    It was pretty good. Needs a bit more brown sugar. Maybe a Knorr block & some ground clove.

    Very bland when cooking in the chicken broth. Needs some zest!

    The directions were easy, (especially since this is my first InstantPot recipe) however it did come out a little bland, even after adding a few other things (soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice to the soup stock and onion, garlic, lemon pepper and a few other spices to the rub). Still tender, but maybe next time I’ll try an overnight marinade or a spice with more zing. The chops were great with BBQ sauce :)

    Extremely tender meat. Found out I'm not a fan of liquid smoke so next time I will eliminate this ingredient. Added Wondra flour to pot after removing meat and set to saute for a couple minutes for gravy.
    It is wonderful! Did not modify the recipe at all

    This was easy to make but was very unappealing to look at and the taste was worse. Flavorless but tender.

    I didn’t have an instant pot so I seared the chops in a cast iron skillet. Meanwhile In a cast iron pot I put chicken stock and thinly sliced garlic and onions. After searing the chops I place them into the cast iron pot and let them come up the temp 140 degrees. I then added some more stock to the pot and whisked the remains and made a glaze. Served the chops on a bed of thinly sliced honeycrisp apple and the remainder carmelizwd onions served in the side. Delicious! Made it two nights in a row! Added the the brown sugar to the chops was a game changer!
