This made a very tasty meal. I would have never thought to cook pork chops like this (in a pressure cooker). They came out perfect.

Yummy, can be done in the oven or roaster. We don't have a pressure cooker but it sure would cut down on cook time!

Quick & easy. I didn't separate the meat & veggies with the tinfoil though as I wanted those flavors intertwined with the meat. I didn't use a whole cup of cilantro (sorry). I grow my own cilantro & it is quite strong, so I lessened the amount to a tablespoon. Thanks for the recipe.
