  6. Crock Pot Pork Chops Recipe

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!

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!

    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.

  2. 5 stars
    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.

  3. 5 stars
    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!

  6. 5 stars
    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

  8. 5 stars
    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.

  10. 1 star
    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.

  11. Ok, I want to make this but don’t see the actual recipe. How many chops/pounds do I use and how much ranch seasoning?

    1. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page you will see the recipe card! Also, you can click “Jump to Recipe” near the top of the post.

  12. We don’t have a crock pot. Could this be done in a Creuset cask iron casserole in the Rayburn oven? If so, how long would it need to cook at 150deg C. Finished meat temp would be 70deg C? The recipe looks good, want to try it.

    1. We haven’t tried it on the stovetop, so I can’t say for sure. The pork would have to be cooked very low and slow. Let us know how it turns out if you try it!

  13. 4 stars
    Made this as per recipe. Used bone in thin chops and cooked them for 6 hours. They were very good and tender. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that it was a little too salty. Will use reduced sodium soup next time.

    1. I made these and I’m not a big fan of mushrooms but this was so delicious. I will definitely be making them again very soon. Loved the fact that the recipe was so easy with only 4 ingredients. Thank you

  14. I found this dish to be very salty because of the salt content in the Ranch mix and Soups in the mix. Won’t make again.

  15. 5 stars
    I wish I could really rate the recipe but I messed up by mistakenly adding onion soup mix instead of ranch. I cooked for 8 hrs on low but 2 hrs toward the end I realized my mistake. I then added about half a cup of ranch dressing with about 2 Tbsp of cornstarch into crockpot and cooked remaining 2 hours. It was delicious but I’m sure it doesn’t taste like the original recipe. I cooked up some egg noodles and added to the meat and sauce. It tastes like pork stroganoff.

  16. 5 stars
    This is in the crock pot as we speak!
    I have an 8oz shaker bottle of Hidden Valley Ranch as so many home cooks use the seasoning, it’s more fiscally prudent than individual packets! 😋 (around $9.99)
    Put a few cloves of fresh minced garlic and sliced a leftover onion. It’s only been on for a few minutes and it smells ah-mazing!
    Yayy me!!! 💖

    Followed recipe exactly. Came out AWESOME!! Don’t change a thing. Fantastic just the way it is!!

    Amazing! I did Brine pork chops for 30 mins because I have bad luck with them being chewy also I guess my crock pot on low is more like high so I checked them after 3 hours and they were done they were about 1/2 inch thick. Ohhhhh Soooo yummy gravy was so and good pork was so tender! Thank you this is def a keeper! Husband and I LOVED it 🙂

  19. 5 stars
    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???

  20. 5 stars
    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!!

    1. 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!

    1. 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!

    2. 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

      1. 5 stars
        man this was good ! For me it was ONLY 3 ingredients. Boneless pork chops, Penzeys seasoning mixture, baked potato soup. The house smelled delicious !!!

  21. 4 stars
    So the recipe was easy and the first taste of those porkchops was beyond amazing i follow recipe exactly as described but i put 4 porkchops thin boneless with 1 can cream of mush and 1 can cream of chicken and only half bag of ranch packet. I poured.the gravy all over my mash and porkchops when put on plate but it.began to taste so salty soooo idk next time ill need to figure out if i need to buy unsalted cans or less ranch packet? No idea. It was still amazing and tender but the salty taste got to me.

  22. 5 stars
    I made this for my sister and her husband. They really enjoyed it. I’m making it again for my daughter’s family. She just had surgery. It’s such an easy dish to make. So simple and so tasty. I make mashed potatoes and serve it with a salad and crusty bread and cookies for dessert. Great meal!

  23. 5 stars
    Made this tonight for our dinner. My wife LOVED it and asked for it to be added to our regular meal list. Will also try the recipe with chicken.

    1. You always want bone in with any meat. That is where much of the flavor and tenderness comes from. They started removing bones because people didn’t like paying for a bone!

  24. This sounds delicious – I love pork chops! Have you ever tried adding sliced potatoes to make a sort of scalloped potatoes?

  25. 2 stars
    Followed the directions to a tee and the pork chop was so dry. Used 1 inch thick chops, not juicy at all.

    1. I’m sorry this didn’t turn out for you. If the pork chop was dry, it cooked too long. If you decide to try it again, reduce the cooking time.

  26. 5 stars
    These really are the easiest to make. Just dump all ingredients in crockpot and viola…dinner is served! These are my favorite meals!

  27. 5 stars
    Thank you so much for sharing this amazing recipe! Will surely have this again! It’s really easy to make and it tasted so delicious! Highly recommended!

    1. We haven’t tried that, so I can’t say one way or the other, but let us know how it goes if you try it!

  28. 5 stars
    This recipe is delicious as is written….however, I didn’t have a package of ranch so I added a half bottle of ranch dressing. Due to this it didn’t give it the kick it needed. (My fault) . So to give it a little more taste I added alot of paprika and about 1/2 cup of sour cream when it was finished cooking. Came out perfect! I served with egg noodles. Hubby lived it

    1. That said, it isn’t difficult at all to dupe the ranch dressing packet to make it perfectly acceptable. I think the flavor would be amazing.

  29. 5 stars
    This is so delicious. I leave out the mushroom soup (just don’t like mushrooms)
    So quick and easy to make.

    These are the best pork chops ever! Usually pork chops are not our first choice of meat for dinner but these are so good! 10/10!

    These come out so perfect and juicy! No more dry pork chops with this method of cooking. Thank you for sharing!

    I am all about the recipes that have the word “easy” in the title!! It’s an added bonus that they are delicious!! Paired with some veggies & it’s one of my favorite meals!

  33. 5 stars
    i made this today but added fresh sliced mushrooms , 2 cans cream of chicken mushroom soup in place of individual cream of chicken & cream of mushroom plus a can of fire roasted tomatoes. I followed thru with thickening with cornstarch. It was amazing!!! The chops were about 2 inches thick and bone in,.


    1. The Campbell’s soup and other soup brands offer condensed cream soups with no salt added. For less sodium in this recipe, you can use no-salt versions of the cream of chicken and mushroom soups.

    2. Then pass on by… No need to leave a scathing comment just because it doesn’t suit your individual particular taste buds. SMH

        1. We have used several different cuts and they all turn out super tender! The slow cooking process really helps to tenderize the meat!

    I’m a over road trucker made this and it was delicious share with my dog over rice and her lip were smacking. THANK YOU

  36. 5 stars
    this was so good! made it exactly and when i took out the pork chops i added some cornstarch to the sauce to make a gravy. sooo yummy!

  37. 5 stars
    What a delicious meal! Anything that’s passed down by an amazing grandpa is bound to be delicious!

        1. In the article it says frozen can be used, you just have to adjust the cook time. How much cook time should be added?

          1. Using frozen pork chops will take closer to 4 hours on low or 8 hours on high, while fresh will take closer to 3 and 6 respectively.

  38. 5 stars
    Another great recipe for my crock pot! Adding this to my dinner line up for the week; looks too good to pass up, indeed!

    1. Campbell’s Chicken and rice soup works great? The recipe is called chicken lickin good pork chops it’s in the crock pot recipe book.

    1. I haven’t tried it that way before, but if you do try that you would need to add some more liquid.

  39. 5 stars
    Excellent!! Added a package of fresh mushrooms and half a sliced sweet onion. Used the spicy ranch to add some kick. Served with garlic mashed potatoes with the gravy. Will be on my short list from now on.

  40. 5 stars
    These crock-pot pork chops were so delicious! They were enjoyed by all. Adding this to the monthly meal rotation.

  41. 5 stars
    This is such a quick and easy recipe. No matter what size chops you have it will work. I usually make this for two people. I only use one can of soup but I add half a can of milk. Oh and using cream of chicken with herbs if you can find it is delish(I hate mushrooms). I have used thick and thin chops with this. With the thicker chops I recommend using a mallot with them to tenderize and make a little thinner to cook(which is what I do). I usually put the ranch seasoning on and use the mallot to tenderize(put in a plastic bag so the raw juices don’t go all over your kitchen)and then put some more ranch seasoning on when I put in the crockpot. No matter what this recipe is great! Side note….I have put frozen chops in the crockpot(forgot to thaw them the night before) and it still turns out great. Just make sure you give them extra cooking time like 10hrs. My co-worker does this also. Hope this helps.

    1. I have frozen chicken breast for this recipe can I just follow the same recipe? And how long do you think I should cook it?

      1. I haven’t tried it that way before, but I can’t see why not! Let me know how it turns out if you do try it!

    2. I am going to try this recipe tonight for my family. Can rice be added underneath the pork chops? How much
      Iiquid would need to be added? My mom states my dad used to cook pork chops and spread mustard on both sides and it was delicious. Would this recipe be ok to do that? Appreciate your feedback .

      1. Hey, sorry we are just getting back to you! We haven’t tried those variations so I’m not sure how it would turn out! What did you end up doing?

  42. I have 1 1/4” (thick) pork chops so how long should I cook them in the crock pot? Can’t wait to make them!

    1. 5 stars
      Also tender rise them with a mallot. That is what I did. It also makes them thinner to cook quicker. I put the ranch seasoning on them and then I pounded then a bit thinner. Then put on more of the ranch seasoning. They turned out so good.

  43. 5 stars
    Like everyone said it was indeed delicious. I used cream of chicken and cream of broccoli soup. My daughter does not like mushrooms.

  44. I really dislike mushrooms,they make me nauseous when I eat them. Is there a substitute for the can or can I double the cream of chicken, the Recipe LOOKS delicious and I really want to try it.

    1. Yes you can double the cream of chicken! I make it that way for guests who don’t like mushrooms.

    2. Try cream of chicken with herbs…it really makes a difference. That is all I buy when I can find it.

  45. 5 stars
    Made this for the first time this evening. My parents and kids loved it. My parents kept repeating “delicious”. My son went for seconds. Fast, easy and great flavor.

  46. I would really appreciate a picture to go with the recipe when printing it out. I’m more likely to make it later down the road when I have forgotten what it looks like.

    1. Yes, we used thawed pork chops for this recipe! Cooking frozen meat in the slow cooker can be dangerous because it takes too long to get to a “safe” temperature.

    2. I have cooked frozen meat right out of the freezer before and it turns out fabulous. A co-worker of mine does it also. We usually cook the dish about 10 hrs. We put the frozen meat in with all the seasonings before we go to work and by the time dinner comes it is done perfect.

      1. 5 stars
        Added baby potatoes sliced in half, my chops have been really juicy as the sauce was runny, so I thickened to make it gravy like. Thanks

          1. It will change the flavor profile, but I think texture-wise it should be okay.

      Love this recipe. So glad I found again. I had copied it before but never can find it. So glad it was on here when I looked for it. Thank you so much.

    I love experimenting with recipes. Instead of spraying my crockpot, I greased it with Country Crock margarine and added carrots, onions, and small potatoes. Cooked on low for 8 hours. It was fabulous!

      I did these tonight in my Instant Pot! The flavor is absolutely perfect! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    These are the best pork chops. I sear mine a little bit. I am serving these tonight for a dinner party.
    I’m sure they will love them as much as we do.
    Thank you

        6 hours on low was perfect for me unless you are cooking veggies like carrots in it or your pork chops are bone in

    1. You don’t need to turn the chops over. The crockpot does a great job of cooking everything evenly.

  50. 5 stars
    I’m always looking for something simple to make in the Crock-Pot. Well I think my I found my favorite. Everyone should try the easy pork chop recipe when you’re slow cooker with one can cream of mushroom soup when can cream of chicken soup an envelope of ranch style dressing and your pork chops put everything together in the pot and let it do its hours and it comes out so creamy and so tender the meat

  51. 5 stars
    How would you make this wonderful recipe for just two people?
    We love Pork Chops but with there being only two of us, 8 pork chops would be too much.

    Thank you

    1. Yes, that is a little tricky because the ingredients are already portioned out in envelopes and cans. I would suggest cutting the recipe in half and having leftovers, or make the whole recipe and freeze the portion you don’t use. It will freeze for up to a month and you can enjoy a pre-made meal in a couple of weeks. 🙂

    2. Before you print there are options to choose from whether you want the photo, the notes, etc. There is also a plus minus scale for the portion you want to make.

  52. 5 stars
    I’ve been making these for a while but never thought to comment until now. This recipe is great! The chops always come out super tender and the gravy makes it seem like I spent way longer in the kitchen than I did. We personally like to serve ours over rice, since it is a nice texture with the soft pork chop.

    1. Hi Julia- thank you so much! I am so happy to hear you like this recipe so much! I love the idea of serving them over rice. Thanks for sharing and for the 5-stars! 😀

    We have made this recipe a couple of times and found that the ranch dressing mix, or a home made version, was to salty for our tastes. This last time in place of the Ranch dressing mix we substituted a dry onion dip/soup mix recipe we found on the internet years ago that is low sodium and it was less salty and gave the recipe another taste.
    1/4 cup dry onion flakes (also called dehydrated onion)
    1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1 teaspoon dry mustard
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    1. In a small mixing bowl, combine all ingredients.
    2. Store in an airtight container.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing how you have adapted this recipe to better suit your needs 🙂 So glad it worked so well for you!

    2. 5 stars
      So, how much of this mixture does it take for the recipe? If all of it is required, who needs an airtight container? I tallied it up and came up with about 3 oz of ingredients, which seemed a reasonable amount for a batch of 3.6 lb of pork chops. When it was done, after 7 hours on lowest setting, the flavor was not at all overpowering, but rather delicious, according to my picky wife; In fact, good enough to take for lunch the following day. I also added ~1/2 lb of sliced baby bella mushrooms, a thinly sliced onion, a leftover toasted serrano pepper, and 2 or 3 crushed garlic cloves for extra texture and flavor. I served mine over mashed potatoes, while she had hers on a bed of Knorr alfredo noodles, to which was added lemon rind zest & freshly ground pepper. I’ve had to promise to make it again.

      1. I’m so happy you enjoyed this recipe. We do use all of the sauce in the Crock Pot for the pork chops and to serve over rice, noodles, or potatoes as you did. I love all of your additions to the recipe! Yum!

  54. ah, I just used the bottle ranch too, having only read half the comments … I’ve already mixed it in so hope it turns out okay!? :-l The couple that mentioned hasn’t left a review after the fact … would love to know now as I could dump and restart – wash off the pork chops.

    1. You should be just fine! It will taste a little different but they will still be ok! Hope this helps!

  55. What size cans???? You didn’t actually give a recipe you gave a rundown of ingredients, those are two different things.

    1. So sorry we didn’t include the can sizes. I have updated the recipe. Thank you for catching that! Hope this helps!

  56. I didn’t have a packet of ranch mix, but I saw someone earlier say that 1/4th of a cup of ranch dressing would do about the same. I also only had 1 can of cream of mushroom, so I used half a chicken bullion cube dissolved in a can’s woth of whole milk, along with 1/4th~ a teaspoon of cornstarch to help thicken it a little. Hopefully that does the trick. I’ll come back later and let you guys know how it went. Hopefully it’s a success story!!

    Made this with just one can of mushroom soup and a little bit of bottled ranch dressing. Got rave reviews and smelled delicious when it was cooking.

    1. It should still taste ok– you might just want to add some chicken bouillon to enhance the flavor. Hope this helps!

    1. Yes, you can bake it. Place the ingredients in a 9×13 pan and cover it with foil Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to an hour. Thanks for asking!

  58. Got everything in the crockpot before I saw all the comments about the saltiness. Oh well, I threw in a small, peeled potato so we shall see. So far it smells wonderful! Thank you!

    1. I agree! I think they just need some reassurance, especially if they didn’t have the certain ingredients that the recipe called for! It shows that they are interested in making the meal as close to the instructions as possible! Kudos the ones who do that!

    1. They should probably be spread out as much as possible. Some overlap doesn’t hurt– you probably just don’t want they stacked on top of on another for cooking

  59. I have this in the crockpot now and my daughter does not like mushrooms so I added 2 cans of cream of chicken and 1 can of cream of mushroom so she wouldn’t notice the mushrooms but it would still have alittle of the flavor….ha. Plus, I only had thick pork chops. I pray it turns out great! Thanks for the recipe 🙂

    1. 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!

    1. 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.

  60. 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.

  61. 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. 🙂

  62. 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.

  63. 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…

    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.

  65. 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.

  66. 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

  67. 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.

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

  68. 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 ?

      1. 5 stars
        I had 10 thin boneless and so 5 stacked on 5…layered the ranch dressing mix with a family size cream of mushroom soup…low for 8 hrs…so good on a plate of mashed potatoes

        1. They can overlap but I don’t know if I would stack them. I don’t know if they will cook evenly if you have a lot of them stacked together. Hope this helps!

    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!

  70. 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?

    1. 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.

    1. 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!

        1. You can find it at most grocery stores. I get a big container at Costco or you can find the packets at Walmart or grocery chains. It should be near all the bottled dressings. Hope this helps!

        I actually made the same mistake in getting the ranch dip mix instead of dressing🙄 but the results were great! It was my first time so don’t know how the ranch dressing mix taste in it but the dip mix works perfect. I also did the 1 can cream of chicken and 1 can cream of mushroom ….. my family loved it and my oldest daughter is one of the pickiest eaters in the world ….thank you so much for the recipe 😁

  71. Trying this with the ranch dressing mix recipe you provided in one of the comments! Wish me luck! 🙂

  72. 5 stars
    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! 🙂

  73. 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

  74. 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.

    1. 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!

    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…

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

  77. 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!

    1. 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 😉

  78. 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

  79. 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?


  80. 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! 🙂

  81. 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…

  82. 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.

    1. 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

  83. 5 stars
    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!

  84. 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 use part of ranch.thank you

  85. 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 🙂

  86. 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 🙂

    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…

  88. 5 stars
    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!

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

  90. 5 stars
    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.

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

  91. 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.

    1. 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.

    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!!

  93. 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?

  94. 5 stars
    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!

  95. 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… 🙂

  96. 5 stars
    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!

  97. 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?

  98. 5 stars
    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.

  99. 5 stars
    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!

  100. 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?

  101. 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.

    1. doing this recipe and added fresh mushrooms and roasted garlic sure it is going to be a big hit on jasmine rice

  102. 5 stars
    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!

  103. 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!

    1. 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!!

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

        1. 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?

          1. 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

  104. 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?

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

    1. 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.

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

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

      1. 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

    1. 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.

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

      1. I make my own Ranch Blend Seasoning, omitting salt so I can control salt content. 1. It tastes so fresh and so good. 2. And knowing your getting away from all the chemicals is a win win. Read the bold print on the bottom of the packages. If they honestly listed what was in them we would all freak out probably lol. 3. Will help with all kinds of health issues that effect 40% of the United states.
        I’ve also made Taco Seasoning blends and Lipton onion blends. 2-3 tablespoons of it equals 1 package. We made tacos the other night, best tacos ever!

        1. Hi I saw the Wright up that you make your own Ranch dressing without salt, is there any chance I could have the recipe for it please.

    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!

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

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

    1. My crock pot only held 6 pork chops I had 9 would it have been ok to stack the chops. I’m cooking this now. For future reference.

      1. How’d it turn out? I’m doing this right now. Small crock pot so I just stacked them. We’ll see how it goes.

      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.
