Ranch House Crock Pot Pork Chops


   Dearest Crock Pot, 

     Oh how I love thee. When I am not in the mood to dirty 5 pans or even be in my kitchen for more than 5 minutes, you really come in handy. Thank you for making my life a little bit easier at times. How can I ever repay you?

                                                                   Yours Truly,
                                                                                      Holly

   Now to the rest of you... This is a delicious and easy meal to make your fam! Sometimes my little family gets bored of eating chicken all the time, so this dish is a great alternative. This pork has tons of flavor, and as it slowly cooks it turns the soup and ranch seasoning into an amazing gravy for the pork chops. This is a new family favorite for sure! 



Ranch House Crock Pot Pork Chops
Recipe from: Picky Palate

4-6 boneless Pork Chops, 1/2 inch thick
2 (10 ounce) cans Cream of Chicken soup
1 packet Ranch seasoning mix
Dried Parsley for sprinkling (optional)


DIRECTIONS:  Place pork chops in the bottom of crock pot. Pour the soups over the chops and then sprinkle with ranch seasoning packet. Close the lid and cook on low for 6 hours, or on high for 4 hours. Serve each pork chop with the gravy from the crock pot, a sprinkle of dried parsely and some mashed potatoes! 

*(I served ours with 'Loaded Mashed Potatoes' from the pre-made tub by Country Crock. When I dont feel like making homemade mashed potatoes I love using theirs. They're delicious and all you do is heat them in the microwave. You can find them near the meat section in most grocery stores.)

I saw this recipe the other day (can't remember where) and thought it sounded like a good one to try. I love my crock pot and am always looking for new things to make with it. Thanks for sharing this one. I think this will make my menu plan for next week :)

Ifound your blog on Pinterest and think I bookmarked every single recipe! Such a fun food blog =o)

Wow! This is what was already on my menu for tonight, too - minus the ranch mix. May have to throw that in. I like to throw in quartered potatoes, also. Yum!

I have pork chops in the fridge for 2nite - I am making PW's garlic and wine pork chops. If I had seen this already I would try this - I love anything with ranch flavor...and I love the crockpot!

This would be a family pleaser! YUM.

What a great way to prepare pork chops! And so simple, too.

This sounds delicious. I love my crock pot also, it makes life a little easier.

Simplicity is what I desperately need! And this looks scrumptious, too, Holly! Hope you and your sweet family are well. :)

Joanne said...

The crockpot can be such a magical thing! love how easy this is!

Jen said...

Is it okay to use bone-in pork chops?

April Forshee said...

I made this a few weeks ago and thought it was way too salty. Do you know of an alternative to the ranch powder?

Holly said...

Hi April. Sorry to hear it was too salty for you :( I honestly dont know what another alternative would be instead of the ranch. We really enjoyed this and didnt think it was too salty, but I guess everyone has different taste buds.

I'm super sensitive to the salt! I don't even like Chick fil A anymore because the breading is too salty! It's very sad, I know! :)

Holly, what size of crock pot do you normally use? These looks great!

Melissa said...

I've made this recipe a few times, it's simple & tasty. I made it today, but I only had 2 cream of mushroom soups, not worried about that, I'm sure it will still be tasty.

I didn't realize until I had already dumped it in the crock was that I was using the DIP Hidden Valley instead of the dressing. I hope it's still ok.

I cook mine in a round crock pot & can never get a chop out whole, is there some trick to this that I don't know?

Hooray for simplicity! Will be trying this.

BTW, for the salt-sensitive folk, you can buy low-sodium cream of chicken. Might be a good option. You can also make your own ranch mix, but that takes the easy out of it . . .
