This is an AWESOME recipe that came from my great-grandpa, which was passed down to my mom, which she passed down to us. As it slow cooks, it makes an amazing gravy and fork-tender pork chops. It practically melts in your mouth! It is ridiculously easy and takes less than 5 minutes of actual prep time, but tastes like you spend hours in the kitchen.

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!

Ingredients to make Crock Pot Pork Chops including pork chops, ranch seasoning, cream of chicken soup and cream of mushroom soup.


How to Make Crock Pot Pork Chops

This really is one of the easiest pork chop recipes. There are only four ingredients: pork chops (boneless or bone-in), ranch dressing dry seasoning mix, cream of chicken soup, and cream of mushroom soup.

  • First prepare the Crock Pot. Use a slow cooker liner or spray the inside of the crockpot with baking spray for easier clean up.
  • Place the pork chops in the Crock Pot. Sprinkle the ranch seasoning mix evenly over each pork chop front and back.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the two cream soups and mix well. I prefer cream of mushroom and cream of chicken, but cream of celery can also be used in the combination.
  • Pour the soup mixture evenly over the pork chops. You don’t need to stir it. Place the lid on the Crock Pot. I recommend cooking on the low setting for around 6 hours. The pork chops are fully cooked at this point, and the most tender.

Substitutions and Additions

Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup instead of canned. 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.

Type of Pork Chop. 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.

Frozen Pork Chops. Thaw pork chops before using them in this recipe. According to the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture), frozen foods can take too long to reach a safe internal temperature in a slow cooker. This can result in food borne illnesses – and no one wants that!

Chicken Instead of Pork. Boneless, skinless chicken breasts can be used in place of the pork chops. Serve the chicken breasts whole, or shred the chicken into the gravy and serve over mashed potatoes, rice, or pasta.

Seasonings. 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.

Gravy Tip:

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

How do you keep pork from drying out in a crock pot?

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.

Do I add water or milk to the canned soup or JUST use the soup?

You do not need to add any water or milk. Do not follow the instructions on the can. You only use the condensed soup.

Can I use chicken instead of pork?

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!

Notes

Tips for this recipe:

  • Condensed cream of celery soup can be substituted for cream of mushroom soup or cream of chicken soup.
  • For best results, cook the pork chops on low. The pork chops tend to dry out a little more when cooked on high.

    My grandmother made this in a “thrift pot” a precursor to the Crock Pot. I have changed it a bit. I use golden mushroom condensed soup and some canned mushrooms. I also brown the pork shops. One of my favorite dishes.

    I watch my 3-1/2 year old grandson and my 6 month old grandson. I have exactly 5 minutes to fix dinner. This meal was not only quick, it was also delicious! Both my husband and grandson liked it. It is a winner. Thank you for the recipe.

    I haven’t made this yet. But I do do chicken like this except I don’t put the ranch dressing mix in it. I’ll have to try that. I serve it with egg noodles and stove top stuffing (it’s so good). But I was wondering if you could use cream of potato soup 🤷‍♀️. May try that. Thanks for sharing 🥰 Have a wonderful day 🙏🏻

  4. I made your crockpot pork chops and I enjoyed it. But instead of using cream of mushroom soup I used cream of onion soup. Next time I make it I’m going to but some onion.
    Thank you Cheryl

    My daughter (now 15) HATES and I mean has always HATED pork chops. I bought pork loin chops randomly on sale at Whole Foods and did a “quick recipe for chops” search thinking I’d give it another go… she LOOOOVES this recipe! Had two helpings! We put it over rice with a side of broccoli. Yum! I am making it again today and we decided to double up the soups because the sauce was so yummy. Thank you for this new addition to our family’s recipe book!

    My husband loves this dish. After I leave for work he puts all the ingredients in
    the crockpot and then goes on his merry way. We make instant mashed potates and dinner couldn’t be any easier!

  7. I truly love reading your recipes gives me some good ideas to choose from different from plain meals, I live alone but can still get your ideas Thank you

    I tried this recipe today and I must say it was very delicious. The chops were so tender they fell off the bone! I served it with mashed potatoes, green beans and apple sauce. I can’t wait to make it again. This is a meal that is sure to impress!

  9. I needed to give this a star in order to be able to make a comment.
    I question the sodium content of this recipe. I gave. up Campbells soups years ago because of the sodium. Also the Ranch dressing is loaded with sodium. It was not noted the size of the envelope.
    This sounds good, fast and easy.

    Sorry but NO. MSG in ranch dressing and horrible ingredients in the canned soups, just yuck! Trader Joes has Ranch Powder with no preservatives or MSG. Learn to make cream sauce with real foods like cream and butter, tapioca flour works great to thicken.

    1. Sorry, but … I’m sure we all would like to eat healthier, but this isn’t a health foods/all-natural recipe site. Just because you don’t like the ingredients doesn’t mean that others won’t. Everyone’s different (I know, that still comes as a shock to some people). And FWIW, I think it’s kinda rude to be telling the author “NO” and ordering the interwebz to “learn” things (cream & butter may be “rea”l foods but they’re not exactly bananas & kale, now are they?). No one asked. If you need to be negative in all caps and say things like “yuck” and “horrible,” why not take that negativity someplace else and find a site that has recipes you like, and leave those of us who don’t mind using some prepackaged foods once in a while alone – ? #positivityforthewin

      1. Right?! This is a recipe. Add what you want, change what you want but you do not need to “bad mouth” it. My gosh.
