Can this recipe be made in an electric pressure cooker

Hi there! This recipe can definitely be made in a pressure cooker. Brown the chops first, and place the apples and ingredients in the pressure cooker. Place the chops on apples and cover. When the pressure cooker comes to full pressure, time for about 9 minutes or until pork is tender. Enjoy! :)
