Crock Pot Ranch Pork Chops

Crock Pot Ranch Pork Chops  |  unOriginalMom.com

These Crock Pot Ranch Pork Chops are one of my favorites! I am normally not a big fan of pork chops.  It is SO hard for me to cook them so they’re not overly dry or tough.  But, I’ve found the answer to deliciously moist and tender pork chops – the crock pot!

 

 

I originally found this recipe for Ranch House Crock Pot Pork Chops on Pinterest from Real Mom Kitchen.  You can check out her post for the original recipe, which also includes a yummy looking recipe for Parmesan Mashed Potatoes.  After reading all of the comments on her post (and knowing my family’s preferences) I adapted the recipe a bit to suit our tastes and came up with a version that’s a little less salty and has more gravy.

It doesn’t get much easier – a packet of ranch dressing mix (or make your own – that’s what I do to make it a lower sodium/no MSG recipe), two cans of “cream of whatever” soups, and pork chops – thawed OR frozen.  I am not usually a fan of recipes that are based on those “cream of” soups and don’t cook with them too regularly, but this recipe is one of my exceptions.  It makes such a great gravy (you’ve GOT to make mashed potatoes to go with this!), and if you can find the low fat/low sodium soups, it’s not that bad for you.  I usually use one can of Cream of Chicken and one can of Cream of Mushroom (this time around, I actually used Golden Mushroom), but you can really use whatever you prefer.  Just make sure you use TWO cans, or else you won’t have enough yummy gravy for your potatoes :-)

 

 

They are so tender, they pull apart with a fork!  Lots of flavor, and SO simple to make…it is a regular in our menu rotation.

    This looks like such a wonderful meal! I hardly ever make pork chops because I never really know how to prepare them… but these sound amazing!!! Thanks for sharing! :)

    • Meredith says:

      I am the same way, Maria, before I found this recipe I rarely made pork chops at all, I’m not a big fan of regular baked pork chops…but now I make these all the time!

  6. omg looks delicious will have to try it. I’m following from Show and Share Wednesday.

    Your Pork Chops look heavenly, for such a quick put-together meal. Thank you

  8. I just purchased some boneless pork chops and now I know exactly what I’m going to do with them. I just have to find the “cream of” soups and it’s on! Thanks for sharing and giving me a new idea for pork chops. :)

  9. Elicia says:

    I have some bone-in chops in the freezer do you think it would work just the same?? And just to be sure, you just used the canned soup as is right? No added water?

    • Meredith says:

      Hi Elicia, yes I think bone-in chops would work too! The meat will be falling off the bone by the time it’s done. And yes, just the canned soup as-is with no added water…it looks kind of goopy when you first put it all together, but by the end it’s a nice thick gravy.

      • Elicia says:

        Thank you! I have everything ready for tomorrow :). I am a teacher and we have open house….. So my hubby and son won’t starve while I’m out!! Lol

  10. Pattie says:

    Just prepared everything but added a layer of onions and cubed potatoes.. all I have to do is turn the crock pot on tomorrow morning.

    • Meredith says:

      Oo, that sounds delicious! You will have to let me know how it turns out with the potatoes…I always make mashed potatoes separately when I’m making this dish, but to skip that step would be great!

    I can’t wait to try this! I’ve recently been making my own cream of soups and this is the perfect recipe for them! Do you think I could add a can of green beans?? Thanks!

  13. Dianne says:

    aaarrgh! WHICH version/size pkg of ranch dressing? The 0.4oz buttermilk recipe? or the 1.0 Salad dressing & seasoning mix?

  14. Kay says:

    I am making this for the first time because it sounds and looks so good. I don’t have any ranch dressing mix, so I added some parsley flakes, basil, garlic powder, pepper, paprika and a few drops of Worchestershire sauce to the cream of chicken soup. I also decided to make it a meal in one crockpot dinner, so I put small potatoes and onions under the pork chops, a few onion slices on top of the chops, then spooned the cream of chicken mixture over them. I will make sugar snap peas to go with it. I am already getting hungry writing this. It is so fun making up and trying new recipes, and using the crockpot is one of my favorite ways to cook.

    • Meredith says:

      Ooo, that sounds divine! You’ll have to let me know how it goes with the potatoes and onions in with it. I usually make mashed potatoes to go on the side with the gravy, but skipping a step on a busy night would be great!
