But I have something even better than our instant pot lamb chops for you to check out first.

It is our Learn Your Instant Pot online course. It teaches you how to use the instant pot, with a different topic every week for 52 weeks. Perfect for going from beginner, to confident instant pot user.

Instant Pot Lamb Chops

You know what I love most about the instant pot? It is simplicity. Its that you can dump food into the instant pot, and it cooks it fast.

You might need to sauté your food first, or stir in cheese at the end, but it does the job much quicker than regular cooking.

You can also use frugal ingredients knowing that when they are pressure cooked in the instant pot, they will come out tender and amazing.

Well that is the boxes that are ticked when you cook instant pot lamb chops.

These lamb chops are quick and simple, they only need a quick sauté and best of all they are cheap.

Don’t think you need a quality lamb chop, because the instant pot turns the cheap into magical and it amazes me how good cheap lamb chops are in the instant pot.

Pressure Cooker Lamb Chops

You can also use any pressure cooker that you like. I am using my Instant Pot Duo 8 quart. But that is because its already out on my kitchen worktop and because I adore it.

I was given my Instant Pot back in 2017 and have been in love ever since.

But if you have a pressure king pro, Ninja foodi etc, know that you can follow this exact recipe and still make the same yummy lamb chops.

Instant Pot Lamb Chops & Potatoes

I don’t know about you, but I love meat and potatoes. There is just something about the combo and how they both shout out COMFORT FOOD.

I love roast chicken with roast potatoes, fried chicken and fries, shepherd’s pie, bangers and mash, and the list goes on and on.

I love to do the same with lamb chops and love to eat instant pot lamb chops with potatoes.

But what is the best way?

What I do is cook instant pot lamb chops and then in the air fryer cook roast potatoes.

Or if I want to make a meal out of it, I will do roast potatoes and frozen vegetables in the air fryer and then serve the lamb chops with it.

Here is an example:

How To Cook Lamb Chops In Instant Pot?

As you can see from the photo, we have pressure cooker lamb chops smothered in lamb gravy, served with roast potatoes, roasted carrots, and roasted parsnips.

Then note, that the carrots and parsnips are from a frozen bag, so even quicker for the prep.

How To Cook Lamb Chops In Instant Pot?

instant pot lamb chops step by step

Making lamb chops in instant potis one of the EASIEST EVER pressure cooker recipes.

  1. Brown onion and garlic.
  2. Deglaze with wine.
  3. Add lamb chops.
  4. Season well.
  5. Add stock.
  6. Pressure cook.
  7. Serve.

How Long To Cook Lamb Chops In Instant Pot?

The instant pot lamb chops cooking time is JUST 3 minutes of pressure cooking time, followed by a 10 minute natural pressure release.

The reason why we cook lamb chops like this is because you want them to sit to make them as tender as possible.

But because we are pressure cooking lamb chops in liquid, they cook faster, meaning that they only need three minutes of pressure cook time.

However, if you are cooking frozen instant pot lamb chops go with a cook time of 5 minutes.

Instant Pot Sous Vide Lamb Chops

What feels like a lifetime ago, we did sous vide lamb chops and they were amazing. I couldn’t get over how tender the lamb chops were and its similar to instant pot lamb chops.

If you have got an instant pot with a sous vide button and would rather do sous vide lamb chops, then follow the cook times and instructions in that recipe instead.

Liquid. I used a frozen pot of leftover lamb gravy that I placed in the instant pot still frozen. If you load in an already made gravy it will be thick enough that you wont need a thickener.
Replace. If you don’t have homemade gravy to use I recommend you use any lamb stock and then blend in some mashed potatoes to thicken it.

    I served lamb loin chops with bulgar pilaf, & oven roasted butternut sqash cubes. The lamb is tender & juicy; I love cooking in the Instant Pot for the past nine years. Thank you for this recipe.
