Crock Pot Ranch Pork Chops Ingredient Notes and Substitutions
- Pork chops – I use boneless pork chops 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.
- Condensed cream of mushroom soup – Use your favorite brand or use homemade condensed 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.
If you add too much liquid, then you’ll have more of a soup mixture than you want. You’re going for a creamy ranch sauce, not one that is super thin and liquidy.
What to Serve with Slow Cooker Ranch Pork Chops
These fall apart slow cooker pork chops taste delicious with rice, pasta, or even mashed potatoes.
Add a side of roasted vegetables or a spinach salad to make it a complete meal.
You can really pair this tender meat with any easy side dish that you want, which is just another reason that these are the best pork chops, ever.
Storage and Reheating
Transfer any leftover crockpot ranch pork chops 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.
