Crock Pot Pork Chops
Slow Cooker Pork Chops is one of my all-time favorite comfort foods. If cooked properly, they’re absolutely succulent and fork-tender while being loaded with flavor!
Crock Pot Pork Chops take a childhood favorite and turns it into an easy, make-ahead dish. It will taste like you’ve been hovering over the stove all day long, but this is really the easiest pork chop recipe! We love to serve these crock pot pork chops over Garlic Ranch Mashed Potatoes or rice but my absolute favorite is to serve it over macaroni noodles.
Serve Slow Cooker Pork Chops over Noodles!
These slow cooker pork chops start with fresh mushrooms. You can use white or brown mushrooms (brown have a more “earthy” flavor) in this recipe! If you don’t happen to have fresh on hand, even canned mushrooms work!
A lot of people love these over Mashed Potatoes and so do I but given the choice, I ALWAYS serve a gravy dish over pasta (usually macaroni). It’s just how my mom did it but I cannot think of a better comfort food than macaroni and gravy!
Honestly, next time you try any pork in gravy (or any meat for that matter), serve it over macaroni noodles. You’re welcome. It’s legit the best!
How to Cook Crock Pot Pork Chops
One great thing about this crockpot pork chop recipe is that the pork chops always come out tender (and never dry)! You’ll want to make sure you’re using the right cuts of meat (this is essential). Here are a few of my favorite tips when making slow cooker pork chops.
I have tried several different types of pork chops in this recipe. The following will help ensure you get the best results!
- The most tender delicious results do come from a bone-in thicker (approx. 3/4″) chop with nice marbling throughout.
- For best results, you’ll want a chop that has fat and great marbling! Look for a blade chop, shoulder chop or sirloin chop.
- If you’re unsure, ask at the store and they can direct you to the best choices for slow cooking.
- Meat that is very lean doesn’t work well in this recipe as it won’t give you the same tender results.
- Cook the chops low and slow allowing the fats to melt into the meat creating a tender juicy result!
These are definitely the best pork chops I’ve ever had!
A quick note about the soups in this recipe: While dairy doesn’t always hold up well in the slow cooker, cream of mushroom and cream of chicken both hold up perfectly so they are added in this recipe to get a nice creamy sauce.
