  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!

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!

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.

How many stars would you give this recipe?


  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    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!!

  8. 5 stars
    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 🙂

  9. 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???

  10. 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 !!!
