Crock Pot Ranch Pork Chops (With VIDEO)

Ultra creamy and tender, this easy recipe of crock pot ranch pork chops can make you fall in love with pork chops again (or give you a new way to love them!) Just mix a creamy base with a blend of herbs and layer it on top of boneless pork chops in a crock pot and you’ll be all set for an easy dinner!



Crock Pot Ranch Pork Chops have become the newest addition to our dinner rotation because they answer my three main requirements:

They’re easy (check!)
They’re delicious (check check!)
They make great leftovers (check x 3!)

And honestly, isn’t that what we all want in a meal? After a long, busy day, the last thing I want to do is feel trapped in the kitchen and making boneless pork chops in a crock pot (with cream of mushroom and ranch seasonings for that added dose of flavor) is my new way to find more relaxation time in my day.


Plus, it certainly doesn’t hurt that everyone in my house loves how they taste.

Should the pork be boneless or bone-in?

I chose to make boneless pork chops in a crock pot for this recipe, but ultimately, picking boneless or bone-in is totally up to you.


However, if you’re on the fence on which to choose, here are a few pros and cons:

With boneless, there’s no need to worry about picking out the bones. They’re easier to serve and will be easier on your budget.

With bone-in, you get the added flavor of cooking with the bone, which can sometimes make or break a recipe. However, crock pots will make the meat very tender and a hard bone can sometimes cause the meat to fall apart while serving.

How to Make Ranch Pork Chops in a Crock Pot

The true beauty of a crock pot recipe is how easy they are to make, and cooking pork chops in a crock pot is a perfect example.

Step 1 – Mix up the creamy ranch by adding cream of mushroom, dried parsley, dried dill, garlic powder, onion powder, dried basil, and black pepper to a small bowl and mixing together. I like to use a hand mixer on low to break up the cream cheese, but you can also use a spatula and some elbow grease.

Step 2 – Add your pork chops to your crock pot, arranging them in an even layer.

Step 3 – Spread the creamy ranch mixture on top of the pork chops. Only worry about covering the tops – as the pork chops bake, the sauce will melt and coat the sides of the pork.

Step 4 – Cover and cook.

Step 5 – Serve and enjoy!

Can you use a dry ranch packet instead?

Yes, you can use a 1 oz ranch packet (just the powder, not the mixed dressing) instead of the herbs (dried parsley, dried dill, garlic powder, onion powder, dried basil, and black pepper).

But if you do this you might also need to increase the white wine from 1/3 cup to 2/3 or 3/4 cup.

When mixing, start out adding 1/3 cup and do a taste test. Only add more white wine if you find the ranch flavor overpowering. If it is, add another 1/3 cup and see if it helps. Continue adding white wine until you find a balance you like. If needed, you can go up to a total of 1 whole cup of white wine help even out the flavor.

How long to cook pork chops in a crock pot?

For this recipe, the “standard” crock pot times apply:
If cooking on HIGH, cook for four hours.
If cooking on LOW, cook for eight hours.
As for my personal recommendation, I think the pork chops come out better when cooked on LOW. So if you have the time to spare, I highly recommend setting aside eight full hours for cooking.

What to serve with crock pot pork chops?

You can serve these pork chops on a bed of pasta as pictured (I used spaghetti but you can also use linguine or angel hair) OR you can whip up some white or brown rice instead.

  1. You don't say how thick the boneless pork chops should be. Are you thinking the little thin ones or up to 1 inch? Back in the 50's I made this with the cream of mushroom soup on the stove top so this is something I'm going to make. I'm also going to add some fresh sliced mushrooms as I really like them.
