You may know pork as “the other white meat,” but thanks to this slow cooker pork chop recipe it’s now the other slow cooker protein. Chicken and pot roast are great for slow cooker meals, but don’t forget about pork.

If you want to break away from your go-to salsa chicken and slow cooker chili recipes, incorporate these smothered ranch pork chops into the weekday dinner cycle.

Slow Cooker Ranch Pork Chops

Spray your slow cooker crock with nonstick cooking spray then add cream of mushroom soup, onion soup mix, ranch dressing mix, garlic powder, and black pepper.  Next add your bone-in pork chops to the crock and fully coat with the mixture. Cook of HIGH for 2 ½ to 3 hours or LOW for 5 to 6 hours.

Slow Cooker Ranch Pork Chops

Smothered pork chops can be served with a variety of simple sides for a low-maintenance, comforting dinner. We served these creamy chops with red potatoes and sugar snaps peas but they’d be delicious served over warm mashed potatoes (with extra gravy from the slow cooker, of course) or even brown rice. Think outside chicken and beef the next time you plug in your slow cooker.

    This should be called Onion soup chops because I didn’t taste the ranch at all

      It’s called NEITHER, if you’ll notice. It’s called SMOTHERED pork chops. That means pork chops cooked in gravy. If you find the onion flavor too predominant, then use less and double the Ranch Dressing mix. Personally, I like the onion flavor, because I think it goes very well with pork. Bone-in pork chops have more flavor, and boneless are easier to handle, In this recipe I use thin-cut chops, and sometimes add a few more just to make sure everybody gets enough, And I serve it with buttered wide egg noodles sprinkled with a good dose of fresh-snipped chives. If you think the commercial ranch dressing has too much sodium, you can make your own dry mixture—lots of online recipes. I also throw in a couple of cored and diced Granny Smith apples for the last hour or so of cooking time. That helps to even out the onions and blend all the flavors.

    PLEASE!?!? Do you make up the ranch dressing and the lipton soup or just add the mix dry to the cream of mushroom soup?

    Help! I was just going to make this for dinner and realized that it said 22.5 oz can of mushroom soup. I have never seen plain mushroom soup in the store. Do you mean condensed cream of mushroom soup?
