Instant Pot Lamb Loin Chops
Day 3 out of 30! That means that we are 1/10th of a way done with our 30 days of 30 Instant Pot recipes challenge!
I really wanted to showcase what the Instant Pot could do with this recipe. That if you cook it correctly, meat is delicious in the Instant Pot!
There are a few tips though:
If you do not want a shredded meat, do not submerge your meat in liquids while it is pressurizing.
Always sear your meat, this holds in juices in and allows you to produce a better flavor.
Always Natural Release your meats for at least 15 minutes before releasing the rest of the pressure. When you Quick Release meat it causes it to toughen up and is just not good.
If you meat is rubbery, it means that it is under-cooked, add a couple more minutes of pressure. If you meat is dry, you have overcooked. You can soak it in your cooking liquid for about 5 minutes to get it to be moist again!
I wanted to show off these tips with a very good cut of meat. I also had not eaten lamb in a while, so a lamb loin chop sounded perfect!
It tastes so good with the onion gravy and carrots that I paired it with!
