Here at Crock Pot Thursday, we favor recipes that aren’t too complicated, and these Crock Pot Creamy Ranch Pork Chops may be one of our easiest slow cooker recipes yet. There is a good chance the ingredients are already in your kitchen, which means you could slap this bad boy together today if you wanted. It is modified from Eat Cake For Dinner and it was exactly what I expected it to be: easy, hearty, and tasty.
The entire family liked it, which meant we didn’t have any leftovers. That is getting to be a problem. My kids are six and nine and I often need to double recipes to have any leftovers. How can bellies that small eat so much food? And how am I going to keep up with those appetites when they are actual big kids? If your kids are real eaters like mine, and you love leftovers like I do, double this recipe. You don’t want the kids hollering when Daddy sneaks a bite of their pork chops. Not that that happened here. No siree.
I used my 6 Quart Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker to make these Crock Pot Creamy Ranch Pork Chops.
Crock Pot Creamy Ranch Pork Chops
- 4 thick cut pork chops, boneless or bone-in
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- 1 package dry ranch dressing mix
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- splash of chicken broth
- pepper to taste
- Plop those pork chops in the slow cooker.
- Give them some pepper, but NO SALT. This dish is plenty salty already.
- Mix the rest of the ingredients, and pour over the chops.
- Cook on HIGH for 4 hours or LOW for 6-7 hours.
- Serve over rice, noodles, or mashed potatoes.
I served mine over rice with a side of broccoli. It had good flavor and was very easy. My 22 month old liked it and my husband thought it was very good.
I used bone-in pork chops, and they stayed really moist. I would maybe add some tarragon. I served it with mashed potatoes and asparagus.
It is definitely a repeater! Pork chops plus ranch equals 3 full bellies. We served the chops over noodles instead of rice because our little guy likes to feed himself and noodles are easier to pick up off the floor and don’t get stuck in his neck rolls as easy. This crock was yummy for sure, but the true bonuses of this recipe are that the ingredients are easy to have on hand and there is no prep involved. Thumbs up!
This was definitely quick and easy, and we made no modifications to the original recipe. We first served our pork chops with rice because that’s what the author recommended. We all thought it was pretty good, but knew immediately the dish would be so much better with mashed potatoes! So we made those with our left overs the next day and it was a hit. The gravy is really good. This one goes in the repeat recipe box, but with a note that potatoes are a must in our humble opinions.
This dinner was a hit! I sure wish we had some leftovers.
