Slow cooker recipes are perfect for those nights when you’re just too busy to cook. Just toss everything in when you start your day, and it’s ready and waiting at dinner time.

Plus, the meat comes out perfectly cooked which means no more checking temperatures or having to put it back in the oven.

If you love the tangy and salty flavor of crock pot pork chops with ranch, try my Baked Parmesan Pork Chops! The cheese creates a crispy crust for the meat, and it’s ready in under 30 minutes.

Instant Pot Pork Chops and Gravy uses pantry staples to make a classic comfort food meal in a fraction of the time.

Or, try Air Fryer Pork Chops for something a little lighter. A sweet and savory rub is all you need to add plenty of flavor to an easy weeknight dinner.

How To Make Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops

Just mix together the ranch sauce and pour it evenly over the pork chops. The slow cooker does the rest!

While low and slow tends to yield the most tender, fall-apart meat, you can cook these on High in half the time if you don’t have all day.

Ingredient Notes and Substitutions
  • Pork chops - I use boneless for this recipe, but bone-in would work just as well. Just keep in mind that a hard bone can sometimes cause the meat to fall apart when serving.
  • Cream of mushroom soup - Use your favorite brand or use homemade cream of chicken soup instead.
  • White wine - Replaced with an equal amount of chicken broth if needed.
  • Herbs - You can use a packet of dry ranch seasoning instead of the herbs listed. However, you may need to increase the amount of wine to get the right flavor. Start with the amount listed and slowly add more as needed, up to 1 cup, until you get the right balance.

What You Will Need For This Recipe
  • Slow Cooker - Great for soups, roasts, shredded chicken, and more! You will need a larger size, at least 6-quart capacity.
  • Mixing Bowls - I like a variety of mixing bowls and prep bowls and this set has them all.
  • Electric Hand Mixer or a sturdy silicone spatula for making the ranch mixture.
Storage and Reheating

Transfer any leftovers to a sealed container along with the sauce. Keep in the refrigerator and use within 3 to 4 days.

For best results, reheat in the oven or simmer the pork chops in the sauce on the stove until warmed through.

Recipe Notes + FAQ

What to serve with crockpot ranch pork chops
 
These taste delicious over rice, pasta, or even mashed potatoes. Add a side of roasted vegetables or a green salad to make it a complete meal.

Should I use thin or thick cut pork chops in the slow cooker?
 
Thick cut chops will hold up better, but you can use thinner cuts if that is what you have on hand. I would recommend reducing the cooking time to about 3 hours on Low so they don’t come out tough.

Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops

Do you sear pork before slow cooking?
 
While it’s not a necessary step, it can definitely add some extra flavor and keep the meat tender and moist.

To do this, heat a pan on the stove with a little bit of oil. Add the pork chops to the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, working in batches so you don’t crowd the pan.

Then, transfer them to the bottom of the crockpot and continue with the recipe.

Enjoy!

  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.

    1. It says thick cut pork chops hold up better but you can use the thin if you prefer, but if you use the thin to reduce cooking time to 3 hours

  2. How would I taylor this recipe to an Instant Pot, please?

  3. Why do you pour the mushroom soup from one bowl to another? Why not right out of the can? Is it because you don't want to show a product name? You could take the label off for easier clean up. I love this recipe but I've always wondered why chefs put everything in separate bowls that all need to be washed.

  4. Confusing information about cream cheese. Directions never tell you when to add it, just assume with soup and herbs since it talks about using hand mixer to make sure all but small lumps are out.
