First, for the syrupy sauce, use a slotted spoon to transfer the pork chops, onions, and figs to your serving platter and cover and keep everything warm.
Return the pressure cooker to medium high heat and simmer with cooker uncovered for 5 minutes or until the pan juices are reduce and they coat the back of the spoon. Pour over the pork chops, onions, and figs on the serving platter.

Now lets start on the pork chops. First, you need to lightly season both sides of the pork chops by seasoning them with the salt and pepper. Next, add the butter (or ghee, a clarified butter), and oil to the pressure cooker and bring them to temperature over medium high heat. Add 2 pork chops and brown them for 3 minutes on each side. Move the two browned pork chops on to a serving platter and repeat the process with the other pork chops.
Next, after all the pork chops have been browned, add the chopped onions and sauté those for 4 minutes or until the onions are clear and you can see through them. Then, add in the garlic and sauté it for 30 seconds. Stir in the thyme and balsamic vinegar to the sautéed garlic and onions mixture afterwards and cook, with the cooker uncovered, until the vinegar is reduced by half.
Next, stir in the dry wine and chicken broth to the reduced mixture. Add in the pork chops and spoon in the onions over the chops and pace the figs on top.

Next, stir in the crushed tomatoes, chicken broth, brown sugar, salt, pepper flakes, thyme, and fennel.
Next, add the pork chops to the cooker.

Continue cooking the food over medium heat while blending the milk (or half and half) and potato starch (or flour) in a little bowl.
Next, using tongs, transfer the pork chops on to a serving platter.

Remove the meat and fruit from the cooker and keep them warm to a serving platter. Next, either leave the pan juices in their current state and keep them warm or skim the fat from the liquid in the pressure and use an immersion blender to blend fruit and the juices into a creamy broth.
Then, leave the pressure cooker on the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until the mixture is thickened and reduced by half.
Whisk in the red currant jelly into the mixture. Taste the mixture and adjust the seasoning if necessary by adding more sea salt and pepper if it is needed.

Pour the wine, apple juice, or water around the roast. While working around the roast, use the liquid to deglaze the pan, scraping up any bits that are sticking to the bottom of the pan. Next, add the apples, garlic, salt, pepper, and rosemary.
Lock the lid into place and bring the pressure cooker to low pressure. Keep the same pressure on the cooker for 45 minutes.
Remove the food from the heat afterwards and allow the cooker to release the remaining pressure on its own.

To consider the meat fully cooked, the internal temperature should be 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove the roast from the cooker to a serving platter. Cover and keep warm while you use an immersion blender to puree the other pan contents.
