Slow Cooker Pork Chops with Golden Ranch Gravy

These slow cooker pork chops have 3 main ingredients, is easy to make and makes it's own delicious gravy.  Can you ask for more?

When I first saw this recipe, I couldn't believe it would be as good as it was.

Seriously.  A can of soup, a package of dressing mix and that's it?  I tried something similar with chicken breast a few years ago and never wanted to make it again, so why this caught my eye is beyond me.

Only 3 ingredients

I figured at least the pork chops wouldn't be dry as dust like the chicken breasts were--I used center cut bone-in rib chops here--but I recently discovered that it was chicken breast that I didn't like cooked in the crock pot.

You don't have to brown the chops if you don't want to.  The original recipe didn't call for it, but I have found that browning first adds tons of flavor, so it's 5-10 minutes extra prep time that's well worth it to me.

Anyway, these are delicious and I served them with the makes-itself-gravy over jasmine rice.  

This one's a keeper.  Enjoy.

Slow Cooker Pork Chops with Golden Ranch Gravy

  • 4 center-cut rib pork chops (bone-in or boneless)
  • 1 can (10.75 oz) cream of chicken soup
  • 1 envelope ranch dressing mix 
  • 1 tbs butter

Melt butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat.  Brown pork chops well on both sides.  Remove chops from pan and place in slow cooker.

Add the soup and ranch dressing mix to the same pan the pork chops were browned in.  Mix well and heat.

Pour soup mixture over pork chops in slow cooker.  Cover and cook on HI 3-4 hours or LOW 4-6 hours.

Serve over rice.

Makes 4 servings

Do you add of water to this dish?

Judith Hannemann said...

Nope, no water.

Angela said...

Tks. I'm making this now using the bone - in chops and browned them as you mentioned.

Judith Hannemann said...

I love bone-in chops Angela--adds SO much more flavor and never dry. I couldn't believe how good this was for so few ingredients!

Made this recipe and the pork chops with bone-in were AMAZING!!!!!!! My husband AND children absolutely loved it!!! Thank you!

Judith Hannemann said...

Glad you liked it!!! Who can believe it's so easy too!!

Wonder how this would work in the oven? How long would it cook in the oven?

Judith Hannemann said...

I'd do it for about 1 hour aat 350 or 375 Kitty. I'd also cover the casserole dish. I'd also try it stove-top as well. Whatever method you use, I'd brown the chops first. With either oven or stovetop, I'd add a little bit of water to the soup mixture as I find the crock pot seems make a lot of condensation, so I use little or no water when I use a crock pot.
