Pressure Cooker Pork Loin Cowboy Foil Packets

by Kristen


This supper is so perfect for my family in every which way.

  1. I spent less than $10.00 on all of the ingredients.
  2. I cooked it in less than thirty minutes.
  3. It’s a cowboy dinner, so of course, my three boys thought that eating like a cowboy was fun!
  4. There was literally no clean up to be had.

I don’t know about you, but I call that a win-win.   Plus, I used only real ingredients that my family happens to love.  I might need to put this recipe into my weekly rotation permanently. Most of these ingredients are things that I usually have around.   Frozen corn, canned beans, potatoes.


Cooking this meal in your pressure cooker is super easy!  Don’t have a pressure cooker?  You can also cook these foil packets on your grill or in the oven.  I will add the recipe variation below.

Hello and good morning,

I found your web page when looking for help with cooking cornbread stuffing stuffed pork chops in the instant pot.

Is it better to cook the pork chops with some vegetables or can they be cooked without vegetables in heavy aluminum foil without burning them while using the trivet and unseasoned water??

Thank you for your help

I would only pressure cook pork with certain vegetables like potatoes, carrots, etc. other veggies might turn into mush.

I googled ” freezing in foil” and this is what came up: Maybe wrap it in plastic after?

Heavy duty aluminum foil can be used as a freezer wrap. Because it can be torn or punctured easily it is wise to use an overwrap. Light weight (household) aluminum foil is not satisfactory for home freezing.
