Fall just begs for hearty meals that make you feel warm inside. Even better if they take almost no effort. That’s why I love these easy ranch slow cooker pork chops so much. You can prepare them quickly and come back to a fabulous meal.
This pork chops recipe is straightforward, and many of the ingredients are likely already in your pantry.
Ode to the slow cooker
Like the espresso maker, the slow cooker is an essential element of my kitchen. It lets me throw in the ingredients in moments and return to 6 or 8 hours later to a perfectly cooked meal. It’s the easiest way to make dinner and heave plenty of leftovers for work lunches, too.
To be fair, I’ve made some slow cooker dishes that require a fair amount of prep. I’ve had to purée whole oranges and make fancy sauces to go with the dish, but I try to stay away from that as much as possible. For me, a slow cooker meal is 100% about ease and deliciousness.
To increase the ease factor even more, I like to use slow cooker liners. Meats used in a slow cooker are usually fattier than other cuts, so they can be messy, and sauces that cook for a long time can leave a ring around the slow cooker. Using a liner takes care of all that quickly and leaves me with very little clean up.

Add the pork chops (they can even be frozen, if that’s what you have on hand), the soup, and the dressing mix. Turn the slow cooker on low heat and leave for 7 hours. Come back, and enjoy your tender, flavorful dinner.
The smothered pork chops can be served with a variety of for a low-maintenance dinner. We served these creamy pork chops with rice and broccoli, but mashed potatoes, noodles, or any fresh vegetables would work great.

If not using a slow cooker liner, spray the slow cooker with cooking spray before adding the pork chops. When you add the sauce to the slow cooker, it will be thick. For a thinner sauce, stir in 1/2 cup of milk.

Doubled recipe. I use 1 cream of celery & 1 cream of mushroom. I used unsalted butter. Added roasted garlic and sea salt.

Thank you for this amazing recipe!
Made this for my husband one night and needless to say it’s on the menu again this week. Thank you, it was very easy and most of all delicious!!
I made this recipe with the following modifications and it turned out wonderful. I used 4 oz of cream cheese. 1/4 cup of milk and 1/4 cup of red cooking wine. I also added 1 package of onion soup mix and 8oz of fresh mushrooms. I lined the bottom of the crock pot with 3 large potatoes sliced like scalloped potatoes and cooked on high for 6 hours.. I would have used low but I had 2 inch thick pork chops. It was wonderful.
