  6. Easy Crock Pot Pork Chops Recipe

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!

Ingredients

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.

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 about Crock Pot Pork Chops

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.

Can I half the recipe and use a smaller slow cooker?

Absolutely! You can also reduce the Crockpot size without having to reduce the ingredients. We used our 7 quart Crockpot for this recipe.

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.

    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!

  2. 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?

  3. 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

  4. 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!

  5. 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

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

          1. We are still working on a nutritional calculator for our site. Currently we don’t have a way to calculate this here on our site. There are many calculators online to choose from in the meantime that may answer your question. Hope this helps!

        1. Just so you know, this reply to another comment is the only way I could find to comment, I could not use your recipes because I couldn’t even find it or get to itbunder all the pop ups and ads. So frustrating.

          1. I am so sorry you experienced this with our site. We will do our best to work with our ad managers to fix this problem. Thanks for the heads up and we will try to get this resolved so it is easier to leave a comment.
