Pressure Cooker Pork Chops and Baked Beans is a comfort one pot meal that is ready in less than 30 minutes. Homemade baked beans or canned beans can be used.
My husband’s mother had five children and had to come up with meals that everyone would eat. My husband tells me that his Mom really knew how to stretch a dollar and come up with tasty, but easy to prepare meals.
Pork Chops & Beans over Rice is one of my husband’s favorite dishes his mom used to make for the family. To me, this recipe is very bland, but to keep the peace……..
Whenever he gets ready to cook this meal for dinner, a nostalgic, comfort type of look comes over his face and he seems to be transported back in time.
This Pressure Cooker Pork Chops and Baked Beans was made because the Hubs was all set to make his Pork Chops and Beans last night. I decided to convert the recipe for the Pressure Cooker, since we love the Pork Chops in Homemade Mushroom Gravy made in the Pressure Cooker so much. I also used a tub of my homemade Holiday Baked Beans that I had in the freezer.
Suffice it to say, this was NOT his Mommy’s dish, so next time, he will make it on the stove, exactly how she prepared it and I will post the recipe. You know, one should never mess with something loved by a son. 😉 The meal came out pretty much the same in the Pressure Cooker as on the stove, but hubs will never admit it. Men, huh?
I used thick cut chops, but I would suggest using 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch bone in chops, as I think bone in gives more flavor and the chops under one inch seem to do better in the Pressure Cooker.
Turn this Pressure Cooker Pork Chops and Baked Beans recipe into a one pot meal!
This super, duper simple. Pour in the water and then drop in the pork chops.
Dump in the beans. Hubs uses a couple of cans of Campbell’s Pork & Beans but I used my homemade Pressure Cooker Holiday Baked Beans which I had pulled out of the freezer.
You can see that they aren’t even fully defrosted. You certainly can use canned baked beans rather than homemade.
Truth be told, I happen to love canned baked beans….. most all brands too! That’s it
Apparently, this must be served with plain white rice. We love the Rico Rice the best. If you are not doing Pressure Cooker Perfectly Cooked Pot In Pot Rice, here’s the recipe for Pressure Cooker White Rice.
See, super simple. Hubs wasn’t buying it though and said his way is better. Interestingly enough, he cleaned his plate. Ah uh…..
