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 turn 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 over Garlic Ranch Mashed Potatoes or rice but my absolute favorite is to serve it over macaroni noodles.

Pork chops are cooked in the slow cooker all day until fork tender!

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!

Mushrooms, onions and pork chops are cooked in the crock pot all day until fork tender!

 

One great thing about this 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.

How to Cook Pork Chops in the Crock Pot

I have tried several different types of pork chops in this recipe. The following will help ensure you get the best results!

  1. The most tender delicious results do come from a bone-in thicker (approx. 3/4″) chop with nice marbling throughout.
  2. For best results, you’ll want a chop that has fat and great marbling! Look for a blade chop, shoulder chop or sirloin chop.
  3. If you’re unsure, ask at the store and they can direct you to the best choices for slow cooking.
  4. Meat that is very lean doesn’t work well in this recipe as it won’t give you the same tender results.
  5. 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.

Let the crock pot do all of the work! Mushrooms, onions and pork chops are cooked in the slow cooker all day until fork tender!

  5. Slow Cooker Cuban Pork Slow cooked all day until the meat cuts like butter, this Slow Cooker Cuban Pork is so delicious and perfect served over rice, in tacos, or as sandwiches.

I add mushrooms because I love them but the great thing about this recipe is that it’s very versatile. If you are not a fan of mushroom sauce, you can skip the mushrooms or add your favorite veggies in to make this your own.

  1. Tried it tonight. Love it, love it, love it! Added a little bit of sweet potato to the mashed potato side which is a really nice balance. The sauce was a little watery for my preference and watered down the potato mash, so I added a small amount of a flour and water mixture to thicken it a bit… and wow, perfect! Try this out guys, it’s so simple and so delicious!

  2. Made this recipe and it’s a new favorite. Used 2 cans of Cream of Mushroom soup instead of one can of Cream of Mushroom and one can of Cream of Chicken. Love the idea of dinner percolating away as I go about my day. Thanks for posting great recipes!! :-))

  3. Holly I’m gonna make it in the oven, any suggestions on how long to cook, what temp. I have exactly 4 as directed. Thanks

    • I have only made the recipe as written, but other readers have had success with baking at 325 for about an hour and a half. Let us know if you try baking it!

  4. Can i use thin cut blade pork chops?

    • Thick with bone-in is best, but some readers have had success with thinner pork chops. Let us know how it turns out Mary!

  5. Making the recipe Sunday while we are at church. Sounds delicious!!

  6. How can u keep them brown? I don’t like pale pork chops. Thanks

    • If you’re cooking them in liquid (or in a slow cooker) they will likely not stay a deep brown color. If you want them browned you’d need more of a pan fry or grill type recipe.

  7. So easy to make and tastes amazing for so little work. I made this as directed and the only thing I am changing is the cooking time to about 6 hours. It was fall off the bone delicous. Definitely a keeper.

  8. Just finished putting it in the crockpot. I’ve made it at least 1/2 times since finding it a couple of months ago. Turns out perfectly every time. It’s my new fave pork chop recipe! Thanks for sharing.

  9. Is the soup in this condensed?

  10. Yes I made this recipe and it turned out great. The only thing I didn’t like what’s the tiny bone pieces from the bone in pork chops. The next time I will use boneless.

  11. We absolutely loved these pork chops! So tender and even better as leftovers. Extra liquid makes amazing gravy. We used thin chops and they were seared slightly less. Thanks for sharing!

  12. This is a good recipe.   I cook mine this way too, but have you ever tried cooking them in golden mushroom soup instead of regular mushroom or cream of chicken?  Give it a try.  Makes a fabulous gravy and tastes so very good!!   

  13. THis recipe was so easy to make & the gravy over the pork chops was so good. The pork chops were so tender. Will definitely be making this again. There was some gravy left over & we put it over hamburgers patties. 

  14. Best pork recipe yet. Thanks.

  15. Made it tonight with egg noodles and rice, giving my family the choice of what they wanted it on. Rice was the winner! Very good and easy!

  16. I made this a few weeks ago and it was absolutely delicious! I followed all directions exactly. I’m going to make it again today, cooking on high for four hours because I woke up late. 

  17. This was a great recipe, my son and husband loved it (as did I), I made 6 pork chops instead of 4 and there was still plenty of gravy for them and the mashed potatoes I made. I will be making this again, thank you!

  18. My youngest CANNOT have milk – like the “cream of” soups.  What would you suggest?

  19. We all loved this recipe!!… Thanks for sharing!

  20. I made this recipe in the oven. Baked at 325 for about an hour and a half. It was delicious. I used boneless sirloin chops. If you don’t have the spices used here you can use a seasoning salt. Your favorite. It will not change the taste. I did thicken the gravy after removing the meat to a platter. Served with mashed potatos and a vegetable.

  21. This was absolutely delicious. Very tasty.. I followed the recipe to a T. But mine were done and falling apart in less than 5 hours on low, which means there were little bones throughout the gravy…so I strained it and it was perfect. Next time I will cook an hour less. There will definitely be lots of next times… thanks for sharing such an awesome recipe :)

  22. Simple et très bon

  23. Are the mushrooms what makes the gravy brown?  I’m going to make this and I’m not a fan of mushrooms. 

    Thank you

  24. I’ve made this recipe twice already in the past two weeks and I like it. However, I added an extra onion because we like them and I think two cans of mushroom soup would work better than one mushroom and one chicken. The chicken flavor really comes through and I would prefer the mushroom flavor in this recipe.

  25. Hello may I know what are the size of the soup can.

  26. Have made this recipe several times, turns out perfect every single time. Pork shoulder blade chops work the best and are really inexpensive. Plenty of fat marbling and a bone always adds flavor.

  27. I have been looking for a receipt for pork chops in the crock pot. Loveit

  28. Absolutely they best pork chop recipe. My husband couldn’t say enough good things about this recipe. It will definitely be in my repeat recipe book

  29. it was easy to make and very good my family enjoyed it thoroughly

  30. Awesome!! So easy to make and my husband loved it!

  31. Has anyone used this recipe with an Instant Pot? I did try it in my crock pot and loved it!  Just wanted to speed it up next time.  

  32. Was suppose to be five stars… you can delete it and I can repost. 

  33. The most tender chops encased in an absolutely delicious sauce. Best recipe I have made of pork chops in mushroom sauce. I have always enjoyed this dish, but this specific recipe is top notch. 

  34. This is a 5 star recipe. Just couldn’t get to it on my screen

  35. I am not a pork chop fan but since we have tried this recipe I now eat them. They come out so tender and not dry.

  36. can you use a boneless porkloin instead of chops?

  37. I’m concerned about amount of sodium in this recipe. How can I possibly reduce the sodium?

  38. This was easy and Fab. I did add a cup of white wine too it (since i was sipping on some while prepping and figured why not?!) & then threw it over egg noodles. Easy dinner while making me and Star in the kitchen. Thanks

  39. It was good, but bland as is. It came out just like the pictures. I’ll add more salt and pepper next time to the sauce. Maybe some white wine or worcestershire sauce. Overall nice dinner. 

  40. This sounds yummy. Do you think it would work with pork steaks? I have some I need to use.

  41. I have pork steaks I need to use. Would they be ok for this recipe?

  42. I used cream of onion soup instead of cream of chicken it was soooo good.

  43. The adults and KIDS loved this. It will be a staple. I usually don’t like mushrooms so I cut the amount in half – I regret that because they were delicious.

  44. My husband got some extra thick bone-in chops. I’m going to use the potatoes on the bottom (thanks for the tip!) and Vidalia onion and try it in the oven on low or in a Dutch oven on the stovetop. Will maybe try the slow cooker another time. Have never had chops this thick before!!

  45. Made this one last week. Another keeper!!! Though next time I will use a bonless sirloin chop, or bone it out myself if needed. That was the only complaint – becasue the meat was so tender that it fell apart and the little bones were hiding in the meat/gravy. I served this with mashed potatoes and mashed rutabaga & carrots (mashed with butter, S&P and a dash of nutmeg and mixed together- a fav in our house) The house smelled mouth-wateringly wonderful all day while this was in the crock pot.

  46. whick is best potatoes on bottom onions on top of that or other way? Making now, I’m in Calif

  47. Could you make this without the cream of chicken? Needing a good option what could I substitute for the cream of chicken?

  48. I want to make this recipe but only have thick boneless chops from a loin. Will these work? Should I prepare them the same? I don’t want them too dry.

  49. I do not have beef broth but i have chicken broth is it gonna make a huge difference if i make it with chicken instead of beef broth

  50. Hi Holly, i cook the porkchops the same way, and i add peeled potatoes quartered and lade on the bottom and the potatoes are fantastic as well. austin

  51. Are the two soups supposed to be condensed, or with the water added?

  52. This sounds amazing!! I only have a 5 quart and 7 quart slow cooker ,,,, which size is best for this recipe?

    • If your pork chops will fit (it should be no more than 2/3 full) I would suggest the 5 quart slow cooker. If your chops are large, I would use the 7.

  53. Love your recipes. So easy to make and to read. Rosemary

  54. I am going to try this this weekend, and I already know it will be A hit! Thank you for the wonderful recipes! I find reading the comments very helpful too!

  55. Ever try this with steak?

    • I haven’t, I would be concerned they would dry out. You could try it with a cut of beef that is suitable for slow cooking such as chuck.

  56. Sounds delicious! I’ll be trying it this weekend for my family!

  57. So very easy and super delicious!!!! This is a new family favorite. I served it with quiona and a veggie. Thanks so very much!!

  58. Hi Holly! These sound wonderful. I’m wondering if you could prepare this and then freeze before adding to the slow cooker. I’m 38 weeks pregnant and I’m trying to prep as many freezer meals as possible before baby’s arrival. Thanks! :)

    • I haven’t tried freezing this recipe before. If you do try it, I would suggest adding everything to the freezer bag except the “cream of” soups and once you’re ready to add it to the slow cooker, just add the contents of the bag plus the two soups. Congratulations on your new arrival coming soon! <3

  59. I’m going to have to try this! There’s only one way I ever make pork chops, and it’s very similar to your recipe, minus the broth and cream of chicken soup. Gotta add those two ingredients next time!

  60. Quick question, I work 12’s. If I put the sirloin chops in frozen, and set it to 8 hours on low (to switch to warm automatically after that), do you think it will still turn out well? I’m guessing i’ll need more liquid, but I don’t want to ruin dinner!

  61. I tried this recipes and my family loved it. The meat was “falling of the bone” tender.

  62. I just put this in the slow cooker. The sauce tasted heavenly when I tried it. The house already smells wonderful and I have to wait 7 hours. I am going to put cooked fettuccine noodles in the sauce at the end because my grandson loves noodles.

  63. I don’t have beef broth can I substitute anything for it? Also I don’t have fresh mushrooms can I used canned mushrooms instead?

    • You could use another type of broth (although this will change the flavor) or bullion plus water. I have only made the recipe as written but I’m sure canned mushrooms would work just fine.

  64. I want to cook the Smothered Crock Pot Pork Chops and want to increase the chops from 4 – 6. How much longer do I have to cook the meal?

  65. Why do you brown the chops first?

  66. This recipe was divine, thank you! I read the comment about the 2 cups of mushrooms being overpowering and was worried but decided to give the recipe a go as written and so glad I did, it was perfect! No beef or chicken broth in the house so I substituted 3/4 cup of water.

    I cooked this in the crockpot on high for 2 1/2 hours then turned it off and let it sit for another 30 minutes, just lovely.

    • This is how I prepared it with one exception…I did have low sodium chicken broth, no added mushrooms and no onion soup mix. My husband is on a low sodium diet so I added low sodium Cream of celery. I thickened at the end. This was savory and soooo delicious! Next time I will have mushrooms!

  67. This was a good base recipe. If you love mushrooms you probably won’t have any complaints. I can take them or leave them, I like them when they compliment a recipe but aren’t the main flavor. Knowing this I only used less than 1 cup of fresh mushrooms and I still felt it to be overpowering. I think next time I will just omit the mushrooms but still use the mushroom soup because the sauce was good. I do like this recipe and will make it again with a couple changes just for my taste. Thanks!

  68. The smell in the house the whole day is divine! I made this meal in a South African potjie on the stove top, also worked great! I also made my own 2 cups of cream of soup with butter, some mushrooms, flour, chicken stock and milk. We ate it on South African pap (looks like mash but made of cornmeal). Thanks for sharing such an easy yet delicious recipe!

  69. I have never cooked in a crockpot before (gasp!). What size crockpot did you use for this recipe? I’m thinking I’ll run out and buy one just to make this!

  70. This sounds so good. Could I add a sliced potato layer before the chops and soup mixture instead of serving with rice?

  71. This was amazing!! Have you ever tried to make it with more than 4 porkchops? And if so how did you tweak it.

  72. So very good!!!!

  73. Will this work if I shorten the time by cooking the porkchops on high in the crockpit for only a few hours. I dont have seven to wait but just wondering?

    • I haven’t tried it but I think it may work. You’ll want to keep an eye on it to make sure your pork doesn’t dry out.

    • Yes. It will work. I fried the pork chips a lil longer than 3 min on each side and put my crock pot on high and it cut the time in half. Still delicious. My family said I was the best cook in the WORLD! Haha!

    • I cooked it for 4 hours on high and it came out great.

  74. This looked so good I have prepared it and will turn on in crock pot tomorrow. I am always looking for new crock pot recipes and was excited to see this using pork chops – one of our favorites! thank you very much!

  75. im making this for my friends looks so good thank you <3
