My First Blog Post

Instant Pot Venison Chops with Sautéed Mushrooms

While I was prepping for this blog, I kept trying to figure out what I should do for my first recipe. Should it be my famous grilled potatoes, my go to pasta salad… I don’t know where you’re at, but in the upper Midwest it is cooled outside, so grilling and a cold pasta salad does not seem right.

Then I looked at the calendar and remembered what is coming up in Minnesota this weekend. Deer Hunting. In my family it is a tradition that my Dad has passed down to my Brother and I, and this recipe is a spin on the slow cooker version my Mom made while growing it. Instead of waiting all day for a meal, this one takes about 40 minutes!

Now this recipe cuts down the cooking times, well you use an Electronic Pressure Cooker such as the Instant Pot.

Instant Pot Venison Chops with Sautéed Mushrooms

1 package of Venison Chops or Steaks

1 T Avocado Oil

1 package of mushroom slices or 1 small can of mushroom slices (yes canned mushrooms will work just fine)

1 can of cream of mushroom soup

1 cup of water in 1/2c increments

1 T Dried Minced Onions

Salt and Pepper

  1. Using the saute function heat the multi-function cooker with Avocado Oil
  2. Season chops with salt and pepper
  3. Add chops and mushrooms and dried minced onions to multi-function cooker. Brown both sides of the meat about 4 minutes each side. During this time stir the mushrooms having them cook down.
  4. Add 1/2c of water to the multi-function cooker to de-glaze the pot.
  5. Mix the remaining 1/2c of water and cream of mushroom soup together. Add to the multi-function cooker pot.
  6. Turn off saute function. Place lid on the multi-function cooker, place the vent in the sealed position. Select the pressure cook function, in the high pressure section add 15 minutes to the cooker.
  7. When the 15 mins let the multi-function cooker naturally release for 10 minutes then open.
  8. Serve with mashed potatoes, rice or cauliflower rice.
  9. Enjoy!
