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!

  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.

  1. My dad and husband devoured these pork chops. They were tender and falling off the bone. Great flavor with common ingredients. I thought I might be short on time, so I cooked on high for the first hour. Probably wasn’t necessary, because I think they were ready to eat in 6hours. This recipe is a keeper. Next time I will make mashed potatoes to top with the gravy. Thank you!5 stars

    1. Hi Barbara, we have only tried the cooking time in the recipe, but I would say you should be able to cook on high for 3-4 hours. Let us know how it works for you!

    2. They are in the crock pot now so I will let you know. Might do just 2 hours
      on high and then turn down.

  2. Made this tonight and it was fabulous!
    I added some fresh herbs to it. The whole family loved it and there were no left overs except for some of the gravy which I’m saving.
    Definitely a keeper and so easy to make!5 stars

  3. Question. Can I use cream of celery soup instead of chicken? That is all I have. And I have canned mushrooms instead of fresh.

  4. Good morning Holly. I’m making today with 4 center cut thicker pork chops. I already know it will come out perfect as every recipe I have counted on from you have been 100% spot on. Thank you for what you do as it’s appreciated.
    Enjoy your day. Again, Thank you. Made your crock pot ribs…again and as I mentioned before, my husband insists people would drive for miles for these. 5 stars to your recipes. On way to prepare now. :)5 stars

  5. Just made for dinner last night. Definitely adding to the menu rotation.

    I didn’t have any cans of cream soup so found a recipe to make from scratch. Extremely easy so probably never buying a can again. I also deglazed the pan with a bit of Marsala to pick up all the brown bits. DELICIOUS! Served over egg noodles. Thanks for another great recipe.5 stars

  6. Overall, this is a great recipe and will be a go-to when pork is on the menu!

    I added more mushrooms because we like them so much. I didn’t have broth so I used a beef bouillon cube. It was a tad bit salty and should have not salted the pork when I browned it (hindsight). Served with wild rice and steamed asparagus with an olive oil drizzle. Yum!!5 stars

  7. I made this tonight, left out mushrooms and used cream of celery soup instead of cream of mushroom and I probably used more seasoning then the recipe called for… I just sprinkled the seasoning on the pork chops and oh my word this was absolutely delicious. I bought the thickest pork chops I could find, low for 7 hours and the pork chops were literally falling off the bone. So tender… I will definitely make this again.

  8. Tried this recipe and added 2 russet potatoes cut into small/medium sized cubes, a sliced celery stalk and some baby carrots. cooked for just over 6 hours. It was great! The gravy was absolutely awesome!! We only had pork loin chops available so they were a bit dry but still delicious. Will do this again but with the recommended bone-in cut.

  9. Heaven in a crockpot! That’s what I call this recipie. The pork chops were so tender and the gravy was very delicious. I did make just a few minor changes. I added cooked bacon and seared the pork chops in the bacon grease. I wouldn’t add bacon again, but I would still sear the chops in bacon grease. I used 6 pork chops and added a packet of Lipton onion soup mix. I also doubled the ingredients for the gravy. I’m glad I did since I used 6 pork chops. I cooked them for 7 hours on low. You may want to make extra gravy becasue it really is delicious. I tried the gravy over rigatoni pasta because that’s what I had on hand and really liked it. But mostly we ate it over rice. I’ve tried a few of Holly’s other recipes and she never disappoints me. Thanks, Holly!

    1. You’re very welcome Judy! So glad you love this pork chop recipe! Thank you for sharing your delicious sounding tips, especially the bacon!

  10. We really enjoyed the flavors of this recipe, but I can only find pork loin chops and overcooked the pork. I went to 4 grocery stores and talked with the butcher and none of them carry anything but pork loin chops. Is there another cut you can recommend?4 stars

  11. This is cooking as I type. Am I to understand that your favorite is to just get a pot of water boiling, add salt, then macaroni noodles, cook, drain, add butter or olive oil then serve these chops and gravy over that?
