Easy Crock-Pot Pork Chops

Easy Crock Pot Pork Chops from FavFamilyRecipes.com

This is an AWESOME recipe that came from my great-grandpa, which was passed down to my mom, which she passed down to us. When my mom was in college she would go over to his house and he would make these pork chops for her. When he made it for her, he used 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup instead of one can of cream of chicken and one can of cream of mushroom. I like it with the cream of chicken because it adds a bit of a brighter dimension but it is great either way! It is ridiculously easy and takes less than 5 minutes of actual prep time… but it tastes like you spent hours in the kitchen! The gravy is to die for! With only 4 ingredients and hardly any prep time.. you can’t go wrong. Your family is going to love this recipe– mine does!

    Thanks. You guys are awesome.

    • James says:

      Tthis dish is just to easy to be so “GREAT” I doubled the quantity for
      8 and all 8 ate every bite. Loved it so much they are already asking for the meal again soon. I served creamed potatoes and hot biscuits.

      For desert, I served chocolate cobbler.

      • Emily says:

        Glad you like it and your chocolate cobbler sounds amazing!

        • Shelby says:

          This was so delicious I made it Monday and am making it again on Thursday lol

  2. Katie says:

    This was so delicious and easy!!! It is definitely going in the rotation! Thank you so much!

  3. jodi says:

    Going home at lunch time to throw this in teh crock pot for dinner! Can’t wait.

  4. Jennifer says:

    Do you use the large cans of soup (family size) or the same 10 oz. cans?

    • Erica says:

      The 10 oz. cans.. Not the family size

    • sherree says:

      Ive used chicken !

    • Frces Mallon says:

      Do you add water as per can instructions or use cans that don’t require water. Thank you.

      • Frances Mallon says:

        Sorry Emily. Saw the answer to my question further down.
        You poor thing! All those questions and only four ingredients :)

      • Dana says:

        I’m putting this together right now, and trying to find out if I need to add water. Can someone please help me out??

        • Erica says:

          Nope, you do not need to add water to this recipe

  5. Carmen says:

    No water?

  6. Deb says:

    We had this the other night and really liked it. I forgot to spray the crockpot but it didn’t matter – no sticking. Served over brown rice. Also, the pork chops were so moist, they literally fell apart. Wonderful, easy dish that I didn’t have to write down to remember. Thanks for a great recipe!

  7. Sandi says:

    We had this tonight and it was really good, but it was a little salty. Has anyone else had that problem?

    • Krissy says:

      I had the same problem, the pork chops were really moist but too salty. Anybody have ideas how to fix that?

  8. Cathy says:

    I made this and was too salty to eat. Even used low sodium soup. What did I do wrong?

    • Erica says:

      You can cut back on the ranch dressing powder if it is too salty. You can use half and you will see a difference

      • Sue Woolwine says:

        Put one whole peeled potato in crockpot , it soaks up salt.when done cooking just throw away or add butter and make mashed potatoes with it

    • Dena says:

      I added a tsp. of sugar to cut the salty taste. It didn’t make it sweet, just cut the salt a little. Tasted great! I used the sugar the second time I made them.

  9. Sandi C. says:

    Just put this in the crockpot! I only had thick, frozen chops, but I followed your directions anyway! Let’s see how this goes……..

    • shelby says:

      How did it turn out? My chips are frozen to

  10. Courtney says:

    What cut of pork do you use? Is it the thin boneless sirloin chops or something else? Thanks.

    • Erica says:

      At the butcher they are just called boneless thin porkchops. Ask your butcher, I’m sure he will know what you’re talking about.

  11. Erin says:

    My Husband hates cream of mushroom soup, can I use two can of the cream of chicken?

    • Emily says:

      Yes, that would work fine.

  12. Dede says:

    Made this tonight for my husband`s b-day and it was rockin` good!!!

  13. Jennifer says:

    I don’t have the powdered ranch dressing. Would some regular
    Hidden valley ranch dressing be ok to substitute?

    • Erica says:

      I wouldn’t recommend it.. it would be adding a lot of added far, plus it might make it taste funny. There are recipes out there for powdered ranch dressing, I would recommend making your own powdered ranch before using bottled ranch.

  14. Sarah says:

    So I only have 1 can if cream of chicken can I do 1/2- 1 can if water instead of the other can if cream of mushrooms?

    • Emily says:

      I’m a little confused what you are asking here?? If you can sub one of the cans for water?

  15. Tabitha says:

    I have only four thin slices pork chops will that work ok

    • Erica says:

      That should be ok, maybe just do one can of “cream of”.. choose your favorite :)

  16. Tabitha says:

    I just realized the I bought the hidden valley ranch dip instead of dressing this should still work right! I hope so because I did put it together and is cooking!

    • Fran says:

      I also bot the HV ranch dried seasoning for dips – will it be ok? I just put it in crockpot. Answers pls ASAP. Feeling worried!!

      • Erica says:

        It should be ok! I haven’t tried it that way but I don’t think the two seasoning packets are all that different.

        • Michelle says:

          I have 3 bone in chops only should I only use 1 can of cream of mushroom? I’m trying it w cream of mushroom only this time! Maybe some milk or broth?

          • Erica says:

            Yeah you could do that… I would probably do a little milk with some chicken bouillon added.. that way it won’t get too watery hopefully

  17. Catherine says:

    Yummy!! I added frozen peas to the crockpot an hour before serving and it gave it a nice little crunch :)

    Thanks for the great idea!

  18. Laura says:

    For Erin who her husband hates cresm of mushroom, I bet cream of celery would be a good substitute. We’ll have to experiment. I will definitely try the original recipe first- sounds super easy.

    • JoAnn says:

      or French onion.

  19. JILL CASEY says:

    I have a Hidden Valley 1.0 oz of Oringal Ranch Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix Packet; is this the Ranch Powder your reciepe calls for?

    • Emily says:

      That will work too, we just have a large container of the same stuff. :)

  20. Dawna says:

    The pork chops turned out wonderful. They were a little salty, but we limit our salt. I also made brown rice. It was awesome this will be on the menu often. I may use half of the ranch next time just to see if it is less salty. Either way I will make often. Thank you loved it!

  21. JILL CASEY says:

    Our’s turned out Awesome! I did not have to use the whole packet; just used the ranch powder as if i were seasoning a steak on the grill and it turned out perfect. This recipe will most definitely be a keeper in our house.

  22. Blondee0814 says:

    Do you need to add water?

    • Erica says:


  23. Becky says:

    My pork chops always turn out dry and tough when cooked normally–even with very thick chops. Just wondering if thin, boneless chops can take 8 hours in crock pot and not be overlooked and tough?

    • Emily says:

      I think you will be pleased, the crockpot cooks the meat while locking the moisture in.

  24. Kim Canaday says:

    Pork chops were really good,however, I only added about 1/4-1/2 of Ranch dressing. Gravy is wonderful over potatoes or rice and sooooo easy. Thanks!

  25. Melissa @ My Recent Favorite books says:

    Pinning to save ~ Planning to make very soon!!
    Sounds delicious!!!

  26. Robbin Stevenson says:

    im trying this now. hope it turns out well

  27. Terri says:

    I have a recipe similar to this that uses cream of celery soup. It is in the skillet and you pour it over Rice, my kids always loved it.. I am going to try this in the crock pot. Would be so much easier.. Mine didn’t call for the ranch dressing either. Can’t wait to try it… :)

    • Cher says:

      I only have bone in! Will that work?

  28. Cheryl says:

    I only have bone in pork chops, is that ok?

    • Erica says:

      Yes– that is totally fine!

  29. Stuart says:

    Made it with cream of chicken soup. Absolutely delicious. I dumped a 12 oz. bag of peas in for the last hour and loved it. Thanks for a great recipe. You are my new Kitchen Goddess!

  30. Angela says:

    I’ve got thin pork chops and they are in the freezer right now. If I were to take them out in 1/2 an hour and let them defrost a little bit. would it be ok to put it on medium for about 5 hours?

    • Erica says:

      I am sure they would be ok!

  31. Mahnee says:

    I saw this recipe Tuesday while searching for a new way to cook the pork chops that were sitting in my fridge. Needless to say I went home at lunch and threw this together it in the crock pot. My husband and I had it over rice and it was delicious. The pork chops literally fell apart. I think next time I will add in fresh mushrooms and cut back on the ranch because it was a bit salty. Thank you so much for sharing!!

  32. Melissa says:

    Is there any alternatives to the soup like maybe just water or something

    • Emily says:

      Maybe chicken broth, thickened with some cornstarch or flour.

  33. jim says:

    Unbelievable,thanx bunches.

  34. jim says:

    For the people who thinks its too salty,are you guys putting in the soup with an additional can of water or milk on top of it because that can be the problem ,alot of people dont realize when buying soup that on top of the can of soup your suppose to add a full can of water or milk this applys to most cream of whatever soups and mostly campbells chicken noodle.

    • Erica says:

      For this recipe you actually don’t add any milk but you are welcome to! Also getting low-sodium “cream of” soups helps with the saltiness.

  35. Sheila says:

    Has anyone ever had to use frozen chops and if so did it turn out good

  36. Kristie says:

    Just put this in the crock pot……..Sounds yummy and is an easy Sunday meal! Took all of 5 minutes!

  37. Jim says:

    Can the pork chops br frozen when put in the crock pot

    • Erica says:

      yes, just cook them a little longer.. maybe 30 min or so

  38. melanie says:

    How many people do you usually serve with 6-8 pork chops??

    • Emily says:

      About 1 pork chop per person

      • Rachel says:

        Can you make it without the ranch packet? I thought I had another, but I don’t..

        • Erica says:

          You can find mixes for dry ranch online.. we even have a homemade recipe that you can use (http://www.favfamilyrecipes.com/2008/05/homemade-ranch-dressing.html) just use the dry ingredients in the recipe and use appx 2-3 Tbsp of it.

  39. EVA HALL says:

    I cooked this and I also added a brown gravy mix with the soups and Ranch, and it was AWESOME.. My Family loved it. will be in the rotation of quick and easy recipes.

  40. Candice Karas says:

    Love this site…and want to hear more ideas!

  41. Sherru says:

    I have hidden valley dips mix ( the original ranch ) is this what your taking about , or is this something totally different ?!

  42. K.C. says:

    Tried this recipe tonight. It’s good. After looking at the reviews, I only added approx. 3/4 of the ranch packet and a tsp of sugar….not salty at all. I used regular soups, not low sodium. Also added the frozen peas the last hour……GREAT addition. Adds an additional “crunch” to the meal. I will add this to my rotation of meals!

  43. Nina says:

    I made shis recipe today and I only used half of the ranch packet since everyone was saying they will be salty…and it came out great!!! I will definitely be using this recipe again..thanks so much for sharing your Great grandpa’s recipe with us…

  44. Elexis says:

    Silly question: Do you prepare the soup following the can’s directions or just dump the condensed soup in without adding the water? (as if you were preparing to make the soup).

    Thanks :)

    • Erica says:

      You just dump it in as is… Not prepared as soup! Enjoy!

  45. Kirby says:

    Could u do this recipe but w chicken???

    • Kirby says:

      N add carrots ??

    • Erica says:

      Haven’t done it but I don’t see why not!

  46. Jessica says:

    Could you also cut up some potatoes and add in instead of rice or mashed potatoes? If so, would I need a liquid like chicken broth, milk, or water? Ty for any feedback :)

    • Erica says:

      Haven’t tried it. Let us know if you do and tell us how it is!

  47. marilyn craig says:

    i am cooking 4 chops with cream mushroom soup.have a double crock.then i am putting red potatos,onions, carrot ,celery on other side.hope it turns out great.an use part of ranch.thank you

  48. Stephanie t says:

    Wow. I made this tonight. I substituted country style ribs and accidentally bought the ranch dip. I just sprinkled a bit on top and added the soups. Cooked for 6 hours on high. Made mashed potatoes and honey glazed carrots. What an awesome tasting meal for a cold winter night. Definitely guest cooking worthy!
    Thank you so much for this recipe!

  49. Leslie says:

    We made this using thicker/boneless chops and cooked for 8 hours on low. The meat fell apart. My son called it a pork smoothie. We did not eat any of it.

    • Erica says:

      Yikes! I have never had that happen before. Not even close. Does your crock pot cook hot? Mayeb try it for just 4-5 hours on your low setting

  50. Marie says:

    Bummer … I wish I had read the reviews. It was too much salt for me. Thanks for the recipe though. I think if you revised it so it wasn’t so salty…

  51. Wendy says:

    I’m trying this recipe for dinner tonight. Using the crock pot frees up writing time for me so that’s always a good thing! I hope it comes out as good as it looks. Perfect comfort food for a chilly night! :-)

  52. Bob Masiello says:

    Most soups call for a can of water, so will I be adding 2 cans of water, one for the cream of chicken and one for the cream of mushroom?


    • Rich says:

      Did you ever get an answer? I question that as well.

      • Echo says:

        Nope, you just add the soup.

  53. Kim says:

    My kids inhaled this. Going to be an ongoing dinner choice at our house

  54. ashley says:

    Can I use 2 cans of Cream of Mushroom instead? Dont have any Cream of Chicken

    • Erica says:

      Yes that is ok

  55. Brandy says:

    I don’t have the hidden valley ranch dressing but I’m gonna try a different seasoning on them. I’ve seen where ppl say the hidden valley ranch dressing is making it salty anyway! Hope this turns out ok tho! Thank you

  56. Sharon says:

    I just put this in my crockpot (before I read the reviews and used the whole package of ranch mix :-/). I also used 4 THICK bone-in pork chops. How long should I cook it and should it be on low or high? Thanks for your help – can’t wait to see how it comes out. Super easy is my cup of tea when it comes to cooking – thanks for sharing!

    • Erica says:

      You should probably be fine.. maybe just cook it an hour longer is all. I use a full packet of ranch mix and I think it is great 😉

  57. Dana says:

    Sounds Yummy!! I was searching for a good Slow-cooker pork chop recipe.
    Making these for dinner tonight.

  58. Shelley n says:

    wow. WOOOOOW. i decided to cook chop in the slow cooker but had no clue what else to use. i tweeter a gal who’s a cook and she suggested i search a recipe, which i did. it led me HERE. *HEART EYES*
    i made this recipe today and luvd it.
    instead of cream of mushroom (bleeeck, the devil’s work!!), i used 1 cream of chicken and mushroom (very mild, not bad at all!) and 1 cream of celery, and also added half a chopped onion, 1 chopped orange bell pepper, and some fresh cilantro. the bell gave it some sweet flavor and the cilantro herbed it up, so nicely! just delicious all around, creamy, tender! perrrrrrrrrfection. i will continue to make this for years to come…

    • Erica says:

      I am SO glad that you liked it! Great addition ideas! Thanks for sharing!

  59. Sierra says:

    I don’t have ranch packets could I use lipton onion and mushroom packet?

    • Erica says:

      I have never used those before so I don’t know how it would alter the taste. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!

  60. SheRa Coleman says:

    Ive got this in the crockpot right biw with 7 boneless thin pork chops. Followed directions above and just wanted a change on pork chops. I hope thus turns out good cause hunny is on his way from a 7 day hitch I hope he loves this. I got laundry to get done and thought this would be a yummy dinner while I get some stuff done. Along with an 8 year old and a 4 month old too. I hope it taste as good as it sounds.

    • Erica says:

      Hope he liked it! Did it taste as good as it sounded?

      • SheRa Coleman says:

        Yes it was but think next time ill use only a 1/2 a paket of ranch it was a littlw salty.

  61. SheRa Coleman says:

    It smells good so far!!!!!

  62. Lyn says:

    Going to try this tonite using all the suggestions above. However, will use “Golden Mushroon” soup instead. Much better color and taste! My son hates mushrooms so I dump the can in a bowl add just enough water or milk to thin it out and run it thru a sieve to remove the mushrooms. I don’t use regular cream of mushroom anymore! BLICK

  63. Amber says:

    I’ve made this using Dry onion soup mix instead of the dry Ranch dressing. No water-just the dry mix-1 package or half. Yummy and delicious! :)

    • Emily says:

      I’ll have to try that!

  64. Rich says:

    When you add the soups do you also add the can of water for each?

    • Echo says:

      No, you just add the soup, not the water. Thank you for asking!

  65. Angela says:

    Trying this with the ranch dressing mix recipe you provided in one of the comments! Wish me luck! :)

  66. lisa says:

    I picked up a hidden valley hang dip mix is this the same as what reciepe calls for?

    • Erica says:

      The dip is a little different. For the best results you will want the dressing mix. If you try it, let us know how it turns out!

  67. Barb Iorio says:

    Had two grandsons for a week, and tried this (because it was so easy). Smelled great. But, even though I cooked it on low, there was hardly any gravy, the chops were too tough, and the bottom of my crockpot was burnt. This pot has never done this before. Followed the recipe exactly. Any clue what could’ve gone wrong?

    • Erica says:

      That is way crazy, I have made this SO many times and that has never happened. There should be lots of gravy. How long did you cook it for? How old is your slow cooker and what size is it? I have no idea why it would have ended up that way.

  68. deb steppe says:

    try low sodium cream of mushroom or chicken or celery soups- they pack a lot of salt per can also

    • Echo says:

      Yes, that is a good idea if you are watching your salt intake. Thank you for the tip!

  69. Aneta Hempleman says:

    I just made this meal tonight for my mother-in-law’s birthday. No pressure right?:) and it was delicious…I pretty much followed the recipe except for putting half package of the dressing powder because you can always add salt but cannot take it out and added frozen peas that someone in the previous comments mentioned and it turned just great! Thank you so much for sharing it!

    • Echo says:

      We’re so happy you had a successful meal with this recipe! Thank you for sharing!

  70. Patti says:

    What size crock pot do you use?

    • Erica says:

      I use a 6 qt but you can easily do it in a 4 or 5 qt.

  71. Marie says:

    Hi … I just put eleven thin cut chops in the crockpot with one can of family size cream of chicken soup and one pkg. Of the powdered dressing . I figured that since there was so many chops that the salty taste that everyone is talking about should balance out vs. Only cooking six chops….what do you think ?

    • Erica says:

      Definitely let us know how it turns out! I think it is a good idea!

  72. Lyn says:

    I have 4 Thick Center Cut chops. Will I need to adjust cooking time? Amount of other ingredients? I hope to get them in before I leave for work. Thank you.

    • Emily says:

      It may need just a little longer, but check it at the regular time. You should be fine keeping the other ingredients the same.

  73. Casie says:

    I only had cream of mushroom and cream of broccoli :(. Hope it turns out ok lol. Sounds like it’ll be good. And I just made a powder ranch recipe from online too so wish me luck lol Also could you throw on a can of peas instead of frozen? That’s all I have

  74. Kirsten says:

    In the crock pot now. Didn’t have ranch mix, so just sprinkled salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme and basil on the chops. Looking forward to dinner tonight. Thanks.

    • Kirsten says:

      My family liked this so much that I’m making it again today for our Valentine’s dinner.

  75. barbara says:

    Help please I just started making it and I added the water.. someone please help

    • Erica says:

      Yikes! How did it turn out? Hopefully it was still ok. :/

  76. Lori says:

    I used two cans of cream of mushroom and a half an envalope of Lipton onion soup. Yummy. Made stuffing and green beans for the sides.

    • Erica says:

      Oh those are wonderful side ideas! Thank you for the suggestions!

  77. Lele says:

    Trying this today….don’t have cream of mushroom soup, so am using cream of celery and cream of chicken, but am adding 1/4 cup chopped canned mushrooms….can’t wait to see how this turns out…

    • Echo says:

      I’m sure those substitutions will work great. Thank you!

  78. Evelyn wishnie says:

    Been looking for a good crockpot recipe for an hour. Will try this today.don’t have cream of mushroom but will use can of mushrooms as someone suggested. Also a little onion soup mix.

    • Erica says:

      Great idea! Let us know how it turns out!

  79. Brooklyn says:

    Trying to eat better and my cooking is criminal unless I cook in a crockpot. Going to get the ingredients for this tomorrow. Sounds yummy!! Love anything cooked with mushroom anything. :)

  80. Janet P. says:

    I am using McCormick Montreal chicken on the chops, one small onion cut up and can of Heart Healthy mushroom soup. I threw in some baking potatoes on top. Also put in 1/2 cup water. Should be fantastic and soooo easy. Will let you know.

  81. stacey says:

    I’ve made this a few times and the gravy part is not thick and it seems runny.. what do I do

    • Emily says:

      If you like it a little thicker, try dissolving a tsp or two of corn starch in 1/4 c cold water, then whisk that into the gravy. When you hear it up, it will thicken.

  82. Mary butler says:

    Love these pork chops!
    Will this work with chicken breasts also?

    • Erica says:

      Haven’t tried them with chicken before but I am sure they would be fine! Let us know how they turn out if you try it!
