Recipe: crock pot pork chops

Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Rory, Zeppelin, Ivy, and I made it back to Texas yesterday. Today Rory’s mom, Michelle, came to visit while traveling from Lubbock to Houston. I made one of my crock pot recipes and thought I would share it with you for today’s post. It is super easy to make and is a fan favorite in my house.

Crock pot Pork Chops:

  • 4 pork chops (I typically use bone-in and just pick them out when cooked)
  • 2 small cans of condensed cream of mushroom soup (just the soup, not with water)
  • 1 cup of ranch dressing (or 1 dry packet of Hidden Valley Ranch mix)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Place all ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low for 4-6 hours
  • If the texture is a little too soup-like add a spoonful of flour to the pot with about 30 minutes to go.



I also made scalloped potatoes and corn with this recipe. According to Rory it was another hit! This time of year I cook with the crock pot quite often. Feel free to share your favorite crock pot recipes in the comments!

And here’s a bonus pic for today of my cute dogs chowing on their new rawhide bones. Have a great week!
