This recipe is so easy to make, you’ll wonder why you haven’t been doing it all along! Make sure to use a chicken and mushroom soup rather than water—you’ll get the best results with it.
At home, we love easy dinners that can be made in the CrockPot! This is an amazing recipe that came from my great-grandparents, who passed it down to my mom, who passed it down to me. It makes an incredible gravy and the pork is perfectly fork-tender every time.
When my mom was in college, she would go over to my great-grandpa’s house and he would make these pork chops for her. When he made it for her, he used two 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 a can of cream of chicken because it adds a bit of a brighter dimension, but it is great either way! Make sure to use just the soup straight out of the can — no need to add water!
This really is one of the easiest pork chop recipes. There are only four ingredients:
- Pork Chops (boneless or bone-in)
- Ranch Seasoning
- Cream of Chicken Soup
- Cream of Mushroom Soup
Substitutions and Additions
If you aren’t a fan of canned “cream of” soups, try our Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup Substitute. It has all the flavor of a canned soup without the preservatives.
We usually use thin boneless pork chops for this Crockpot pork chops recipe, but you can also use bone-in chops. If you use a thicker chop, make sure to adjust the cooking time.
Same goes for frozen chops — either thaw them before you put them in, or adjust the cooking time. We have seen recipes much like this one that use chicken instead of pork, which would actually be a great substitution if you don’t like pork. You can shred the chicken before serving or just keep it whole.
The packet of ranch dressing mix contains plenty of seasonings, but feel free to add fresh herbs, sautéed onions, minced garlic, garlic powder, or pepper to suit your tastes.
To cut down on the salt content or to simply reduce the sodium in the gravy for this recipe, use low-sodium cream soups.
The Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
This recipe makes a really tasty gravy that goes great with mashed potatoes. You literally don’t have to do anything. Once the pork chops are done, you can just use a slotted spoon or tongs to get the pork out of the crockpot and use whatever remains as gravy. We love serving the pork chops and gravy with mashed potatoes and a side of steamed vegetables. The pork gravy is also delicious over rice or egg noodles.
Frequently Asked Questions about Crock Pot Pork Chops
We have a few tips for moist, tender pork chops. First, coat the pork chops in the seasonings before placing them in the crockpot. Next, make sure the pork chops are covered with the soup mixture. Lastly, cook them on low until they reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees. This should take approximately 6-7 hours with most slow cookers.
Absolutely! You can also reduce the Crockpot size without having to reduce the ingredients. We used our 7 quart Crockpot for this recipe.
You do not need to add any water or milk. Do not follow the instructions on the can. You only use the condensed soup.
Yes, chicken can be used instead of pork. The flavor and texture will be a little different (because you are using a completely different kind of meat) but it will still taste great!

Made this for my wife and we both loved it. Will make again.
This recipe is so easy and sooooo delicious! We have a pig and a cow butchered each year for fresh, local, hormone free meat. The pork chops and steaks ALWAYS turn out dry and tough, no matter how I cook them. It has been quite the challenge to cook them so that we would enjoy them. I made this and we were both blown away by how tender and flavorful this meat was, especially with how few ingredients the recipe calls for!
I did add some rosemary, thyme, and pepper for a little extra flavor.
I am wondering, has anyone has tried this recipe using chicken???
How thin are the pork chops.
Usually an inch or less!
This was a crowd pleaser!!! Thanks!!!
I made one slight adjustment, I used half a pack of regular ranch and half a pack of spicy ranch. Yum!!
? do you mix the condensed soups with any water
No– you just put them straight in with no water or milk added.
I will try this recipe thank you
Made this last night and it was soooo good. Will definitely be making this again. 😋
Can I use 4 pork chops instead of 8?
Be nice if you had the cooking time and low or high in this recipe. Ive read it twice and still cant find it.
The recipe card can be found at the bottom of the page. From step three of the recipe card: “Combine soups in a bowl and stir. Pour evenly over pork chops. Cook on low heat for 6-8 hours (or high heat for about 3-4 hours).” Hope this helps!
Yes, on low, it is 6-8 hours: on high 3-4 hours.
any suggestions for Substitute for ranch packet?
I don’t have a suggestion, but you could google “homemade ranch seasoning” for some ideas!
Could I use a couple of pork tenderloins; and if I did, would I lower the cooking time?
I haven’t tried this recipe that way, so I can’t say. Let us know how it turns out if you do try it!
I have made with French onion soup mix
A beef stew packet or stroganoff packet … works out with pork too and the soups. You could add sour cream in place of cream of chicken soup if you prefer …. Anyway, just some ideas!
snowed in (MN )so I used the spice packet I had from Penzey’s !!! It contains 10 different spices. But I cannot let you know how good it is until 6 hours from now. Also I used Baked Potato Soup cuz I am avoiding going out until tomorrow at 11:00 am
man this was good ! For me it was ONLY 3 ingredients. Boneless pork chops, Penzeys seasoning mixture, baked potato soup. The house smelled delicious !!!
