Here’s an easy way to prepare a complete meal in a pressure cooker. Add a salad or hot vegetable and dinner’s ready! —Leota Hall, Lincoln, NE


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 6 bone-in pork loin chops (8 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cans (14 ounces each) Bavarian sauerkraut, drained
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 6 medium potatoes, peeled
  • 1-1/2 cups water


  1. Add oil to a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker. Adjust for medium heat. When oil is hot, brown chops on both sides; drain. Remove pork and keep warm; sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Add sauerkraut to cooker; sprinkle with brown sugar. Arrange pork chops and potatoes over sauerkraut; add water.
  2. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 15 minutes. Let pressure release naturally for 10 minutes; quick-release any remaining pressure. A thermometer inserted in pork should read at least 145°.
