If you have been wanting to branch out and try making different cuts of meat in your instant pot, you are in for a real treat! I love cooking meat in my instant pot because it comes out perfectly tender and moist. You will never eat a bite of dry meat again when using your instant pot.

Lamb Chops in a Pressure Cooker

This instant pot lamb chop recipe is fun because it marinates and then is glazed in a sticky spicy-sweet sauce made of brown sugar and chili sauce. This recipe does require marinating for a minimum of 4 hours, but it is well worth the wait. Mixing together the sauce takes less than 10 minutes.

I recommend you make the marinade the night before and let it sit in you fridge overnight. Then, you can throw it in your instant pot the next night and have dinner ready in 30-40 minutes, with very little hands-on time!
