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. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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

  6. 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?

  7. Made this for supper tonight… SO GOOD. I used 2 large pork bone in blade steaks, they were done sooner than expected and fork tender. I also thickened the sauce with some cornstarch slurry. Adding this to the recipe book for sure. Thanks for ANOTHER great recipe!5 stars

  8. Question: I made your from scratch condensed cream of chicken soup in lieu of using canned. Since it contains milk, when should I add it in?

    1. I wouldn’t recommend fresh dairy in the slow cooker as it can sometimes curdle (you can find this information in the scratch cream of chicken soup). I hope that helps.

  9. This was absolutely delicious. I added the bacon as suggested in one of the comments. I used boneless chops and it only took about 3.5 hours to cook. This will become a family favorite.5 stars

  10. I was unable to find the cut of pork recommend. Will loin chops end up dry? Plan on making this tomorrow. Thank you.

    1. Pork loin can be very lean so it could dry out if overcooked. Many readers have made it successfully. Enjoy Kathy!

  11. Love your recipes, so much to choose from I don’t know which to try first! Looking forward to using my new Crock Pot for the first time.

  12. I always add bacon. Chop up 4-5 slices, cook, remove then sear the pork chops in the bacon fat. Add all everything to the crock pot and stir.

    You’ll thank me later.4 stars

  13. Oh my tastebuds! It was a huge hit at home. I’m definitely making this again. I added a little corn starch to the liquid while I heated it the pan like others suggested. I also used 6 regular pork chops with the bone in and it turned out just fine. Served it over noodles. I highly recommend this one.5 stars

  14. I really loved this dish, only thing I did was to double the sauce and added an extra onion.
    It was delicious and flavors were great!
    I will be making this again!
    Great recipe5 stars

  15. I made this today, easy, quick prep time and fall off the bone tender, really delicious!! The gravy, onions and mushrooms were great with mashed potatoes. True comfort food on a cold snowy day. I will make it again!! 5 stars

    1. I haven’t tried it with 8 chops but as long as your slow cooker isn’t more than 3/4 full I do think it would work. You might need to increase cook time slightly.

  16. It may be in the comments but I didn’t have time to scroll. Sorry, I have thin bone in chops. Should I reduce the cooking time?

    1. I would not reduce the cooking time. I haven’t tried this with thin chops however some readers have been successful. I would suggest you ensure your chops aren’t too lean or they will dry out.

  17. My family loves this recipe. There are times when I wish they didn’t because I make it so many times. Yes we added a few tweaks to our dinner like searing the pork porterhouse chops because they are so thick like a roast. Adding real butter, and using fresh herds from our garden. The recipe itself is genius period it can be cooked in both a cast iron or crock pot, depending on how much time you have at home.what kind of arts me is the people who say I don’t like cream of mushroom I don’t like onions I don’t like garlic I don’t like pork and I don’t feel comfortable adding fresh mushrooms to my food so I’m giving this a bad review. if you’re old enough to be making this dish for your family you’re old enough to know what your family likes don’t cook it if you don’t like it.

  18. I have never made a recipe with canned soup before and had vowed I never would. BUT, I was in a big hurry so ran to the grocery and made this as written and I have to admit that it was really delicious. The sauce came out a little thin but it turned out that it was really good that way — not a thick gravy but rather a nice thin sauce. One could remove the meat and thicken with flour or cornstarch, I guess. Was great with mashed potatoes. Actually would make again in a pinch. Seasoned the meat really well and sauteed the onions and mushrooms a bit before adding to cooker which I think also brings up the flavor profile.4 stars

  19. Omg!! I finally found your recipe again!! I fix this About a month ago it was the best pork chops ever. Going to fix it again today!!!

  20. This recipe is fabulous and loved by everyone I have made it for. The pork chops are “fall-off-the-bone” tender, the gravy is delicious, and it could not be simpler. My only modification was to use 8 pork chops (leftovers!) and only use one can of soup (cream of mushroom) as there is so much liquid after cooking. I take the leftover liquid, cool it to skim off a lot of the fat, then measure equal parts of fat and flour to make gravy and add liquid from cooking to make it the desired thickness. I serve it with mashed potatoes and a vegetable for the perfect Fall or Winter meal.5 stars

  21. I like to keep my expectations pretty low when it comes to new recipes, given the persnickety nature of my 3 kids. Well, this one was a hit! Two of my kids and my husband had second helpings, and my pickiest even ate every bite on his plate. This was SO easy. I used regular beef broth and still added salt and onion powder (we like our salt here!). I suppose if I had a complaint it was that the chops were so tender they literally fell apart in my crockpot. Adding this one to my regular rotation!5 stars

  22. I made these and it was excellent! Will definitely be a staple in my house from now on! I don’t even like pork chops, but my guy does so that’s why I made them. So glad I did! And easy too!5 stars

  23. My family loves this recipe, even those that don’t like mushrooms. I add about 1 T of Worcestershire sauce to the soup mixture for a little more flavor. We love this with mashed potatoes.5 stars

  24. 9/6/20
    Absolutely amazing! I used smaller, boneless, chops and it turned out beautifully. They were so juicy and tender! The flavor was incredible. My daughter (who normally doesn’t care for pork chops) had a second helping … which she never does.

    I used No Yolk Dumpling noodles and put the chops over them. Also made mashed potatoes, veggies & used the juices in the crock pot to top everything off.
    I doubled the recipe & it turned out great!
    Thank you for the recipe!!5 stars

  25. This was an awful recipe!
    Yes, the pork chops were nice and tender but the mushroom cream sauce with the canned soup was bland and flavorless.

    When I first heard of this recipe I loves the idea and couldn’t wait to try it for myself. I followed this recipe each and every step of the way and I would never make this dish again.

    If you enjoy any sort of flavour stay away from this recipe.1 star

    1. If you were to add better than bouillon beef base along with a quarter cup of sour cream to the mixture, it turns out delicious

  26. Very good comfort food. Made it with mashed potatoes. Husband said it needed something to jazz it up, but didn’t have a suggestion. Definitely a keeper recipe.5 stars

    1. I haven’t tried cooking this with frozen chops so I can’t say for sure. I would suggest thawing them either on defrost in the microwave or by placing them in a freezer bag in cold water in the sink for about 30 minutes. Let us know how it goes for you.

  27. Absolutely delicious! I served it with mashed potatoes. The chicken and mushroom soup made it so delicious! It was super easy to make and I will be making it again. Thanks!5 stars

  28. Quick and easy to throw together and just leave it for hours. I chose to serve it on mashed potatoes and it was a HIT! I am definitely going to make it again and again and choose different things to serve it on. Rice or Noodles. Five stars here!!!5 stars

  29. Canned soups are a no no for me, so what would you suggest instead to get this same consistency?

    1. Hi Jenifer, 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!

  30. These sound so good.
    I have a question…do you dilute with milk the soups?
    Trying to find simple meals for just my husband and I and easier ones. Plan on using alot of your recipies.

  31. I just turned my crockpot pot on low. Heading out boating for the day. Looks and smell amazing. I used 1 1/2 “ pork steaks. I didn’t have cream of chicken but substituted with canned chicken gravy. Can’t wait for dinner

  32. I made these for dinner tonight, and they turned out amazing! The only change I made was that I didn’t have any cream of chicken soup, so I substituted the juice from a can of chicken noodle soup. I served them over egg noodles. They turned out so tender and savory!5 stars

  33. Hi.

    If I’m using a thinner boneless porck chop do I still need to brown it and does it still take 7-8 hours on low?

    1. Hi Michelle, I would still brown it before adding to the crockpot but it may not take as long to fully cook. Use a meat thermometer to check it periodically and make sure it reaches an internal temperature of 145°F before serving.

  34. Too hot today heat advisory still Barbequed the last couple. Got chops on at a good price.’ So this for dinner. Oh and loving our new 3 in floor air conditioner. Replaces the 2 old window.

  35. Very tasty mix for the chops to cook in. Cooked all day, they are certainly fork tender. Definitely will cook again!5 stars

    1. I have made this recipe twice so far. The only difference is I use cream of celery instead of cream of mushroom bc my family will not touch mushrooms haha. Even my picky eater loves this!!!!5 stars

  36. Made this for dinner today. Put it in the crock pot around 10 am and it was finished by 6ish. Soooo soft and husband approved! If I could post a picture of the result, I would!5 stars

  37. I’ve made this recipe for the chops several time great results now I’m using it for a 1in tuff Denver steak will this work ?

    1. Hi Bob, we have never tried this recipe with a Denver steak but would love to hear how it turns out!

  38. This was an incredibly easy and sooooo flavorful recipe. My family is not a fan of mushrooms so I did omit them from our meal but I did keep the can of mushroom soup as it really balanced out the rest of the flavors without getting massive slices/pieces. The pork literally fell off of the bone and the gravy that is created during the slow cook process is to die for. Lol, even after supper was finished, I caught my family returning to gravy dip snacks created from warmed up potatoes, corn on the cobb, leftover pork, biscuits….. I highly recommend this recipe. Not only is it delicious, (and now included in our permanent meal rotation) it is also very inexpensive to make. It was perfect in every way.5 stars

  39. I just checked mine after about 5 hours and the chips are still pretty tough. I know they have a couple to go, but it made me nervous. Do they get that much tender in the last couple of hours? I actually expected to have to turn it off because I thought they may have been close to falling apart. I used bone-in chips with a good amount of marbling.

    1. The will get tender as they cook, if they’re tough they likely need more time. (If you check them, try to keep the lid off as little as possible, opening the slow cooker can increase the cook time a lot). I hope that helps!

  40. Made this for dinner last night & I almost ate one whole pork chop when I checked on the food after about 6 hours! Pork was super tender, moist & flavorful. Served it with a side of veggies & mashed potatoes & there was more than enough gravy for everything.
    Use low sodium broth & soup if needed.
    7 hours is probably enough time.5 stars

  41. I just made this with chicken broth, i was out of beef broth. It was amazing. Even my 6 year old ate it with no arguing!

  42. I don’t know if I what happened, but I followed this recipe exactly, but it had been 6 hours on low , I checked them and they were tough and dry. What did I do wrong?

    1. The type of pork used may have played a factor. If you used thin cut boneless, the results will not be the same as using a thick cut bone in chop. The recipe notes that follow the recipe instructions recommend using a bone in blade chop, shoulder chop or sirloin chop. It also notes that leaner cuts do work but are not as tender. I went with the 3/4 cut sirloin chop and the overall result far exceeded my expectations. The best part was that a family pack of 8 was under 8.00. Give it another try. You wont regret it.

    2. Chances are you used a cut of pork that didn’t have enough marbling and was too lean. This recipe definitely needs the fat.

  43. Tried this porkchop crockpot recipe and it was delicious!! The best mushroom gravy I have ever made. Thank you for a great easy dinner. Everyone loved it.5 stars

  44. Another winner from your kitchen, Holly. Delicious, and so tender that two of the chops fell apart as I was using tongs to lift them out of the crock pot. Thanks so much!5 stars

  45. I can’t wait to try this recipe. Your recipes are always so good. I’m a senior lady and can remember when pork chops were tender and juicy not tough and dry and tasteless. Same with ham. Give us back our old pork. In the meantime I will give this a try. It looks fantastic.5 stars

  46. I am diabetic looking for easy meals to make in my crockpot. I have tried some of your recipes and they are great.

  47. These are the kind of recipes I have been looking for. Love to look through a copy of Bon Appetit but recipes with 50 ingredients and 30 preparation steps over 4 days is not my style.

  48. I’ve made this recipe multiple times, and the family really likes it…Instead of an onion, I put in a packet of Lipton’s Soup Mix…Great recipe, thanks!5 stars

      1. Hi Tony, you can usually find this soup mixture at your local grocery store. It is a powdered soup mixture that makes a flavorful soup or delicious addition to recipes like this.

    1. I’m so glad to read this suggestion! I just underwent a neck procedure, making chopping difficult for me. I was going to do it, but I think I’ll try this instead!

  49. This was really tasty and easy. I added a block of cream cheese while cooking the sauce up, just because I had it, delicious :) I was able to put it together the night before and put in the fridge, then started it in the crock pot on my way out the door. Will definitely make again —5 stars

      1. Hi Vera, other readers have made this recipe with potatoes with great results! Leaving out the mushrooms will change the flavor but will still be delicious. Enjoy!

    1. I never thought of adding cream cheese, but I’ll bet it was delicious! I love cream cheese (and sour cream), and I’ll have to try adding some next time I make this! (and I definitely will!)

    1. Hi Elva, I have not tried but I would probably increase the broth so that it isn’t too thick as well. Let us know how it turns out for you!

    1. Hi Kim, I haven’t tried this recipe using frozen pork chops, but you could defrost them first then it should work as written.

    1. The most tender delicious results do come from a bone-in thicker (approx. ¾″) chop with nice marbling throughout.

  50. Using the recipe for crock pot pork chops with mushrooms and onions. It smells delicious and can’t wait until it’s done. Very easy recipe to follow!

  51. Holly, I really want to make this for Christmas Eve. Problem will be for 16 people. Would a 6 & 8 qt slow cooker hold all of this or should I use a roasting pan? I’m not a very good cook & don’t want to ruin Christmas. This sounds so good & gluten free for two of my family members.

  52. Used 6 chops, half up the amount of soups. 5 hours later falling of the bone. Served over bow tie noodles with a side bowl of green beans and potatoes. Perfect.5 stars

  53. Can two cans of cream of mushroom soup be used instead of one of each cream of mushroom and cream of chicken soup?

    1. Hi Nancy, we have only made the recipe as listed but that should work. It will change the flavor slightly but should still turn out delicious.

  54. This is an awesome recipe. I’ve made it several times now and it always turns out great! What I’ve noticed is that there is usually gravy left over (which freezes well) and when mixed with browned ground beef, makes very good faux-stroganoff served over noodles or rice.5 stars

    1. While we have only made the recipe as written, some readers have shared that they made the pork chops on high for 4 hours successfully. Let us know if you try it Amanda!

  55. I am making this right now! Thanks for posting this recipe. I can’t wait to have these for supper tonight. Mmm!
    Added Applewood Smoked seasoning to this and Charcoal BBQ’d the pork chops last night.

  56. I’ve been making this recipe using chicken thighs (bone-in, skinless) and it is awesome!
    Does this freeze well after cooking it?5 stars

    1. I haven’t tried freezing this recipe after cooking it before. If you do try freezing, 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.

  57. Excellent Recipe! I prepped everything last night, so all I had to do was brown the pork chops and throw it all into the slow cooker. This tenderizes and moistens the meat so much that I believe pork tenderloin steaks would work well too.5 stars

  58. This is my families new favorite pork chop recipe. Its inexpensive which is always a plus. It’s an easy to follow recipe that anyone can handle and it is absolutely delicious! It can be served with (or over, which I prefer) rice, mashed potatoes or my families favorite, egg noodles. Steam something green for a side and you have a well rounded, pretty and scrumptious dinner:)5 stars

  59. I have been diabetic for many years and suffer major dental issues which makes chewing meats very difficult. I made this yesterday and was in heaven. So delicious and the smell in my house was like Christmas came early! Thank you so much.5 stars

  60. I made the pork chops exactly as the recipe indicates. They were the best I’ve had in a long time. Will definitely make again!5 stars

  61. Easy recipe, had all ingredients in pantry and put all together left house for a couple of hours, walked into a great smell and eating it now. Yum! Thanks!5 stars

    1. If your crock pot is large enough to accomodate, yes, you could triple this recipe John!

  62. Made these today with a pack of boneless spareribs from Aldi
    They were excellent
    Great recipe5 stars

  63. Canned soups don’t agree with me, all the chemicals are the problem. Is there something that can be used as a quick substitute? I’ve made your condensed soup recipes but don’t always have the time to do so, so what can you suggest for their replacement that is quick for this recipe.

    1. Hi Charlaine, if you have the time we would recommend making some of our condensed soup recipes and then freezing them for use in recipes when you don’t have time to make fresh!

    1. Use Aldi Fit n’ Active with less sodium and fat, was not salty
      Also used low sodium chicken broth

  64. Absolutely wonderful. Aromatic. Delicious. Everyone had seconds. We had this for lunch today, March 23, 2019. Because of time constraints I prepared everything last night, loaded up the Crock Pot stoneware container and put it in the fridge. I’ve had this Crock Pot for 17 years and it’s an amazing performer (back when I purchased it, it was not a foreign import so perhaps that’s why it’s lasted so long). This morning I placed it on the unit, plugged it in and seven hours later served a delicious meal with mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli and Waldorf salad (also an excellent recipe on your site) and rye bread. For the pork chops I used bone-in sirloin (four of them) and substituted one of the condensed soups with a condensed creamy mushroom with garlic. I used Mexican beer instead of beef broth, and added two fresh seeded and chopped red chili peppers; I stir-fried those in the skillet after I browned the chops and before I added the rest of the ingredients. The aroma in the kitchen was divine this morning . Holly, thank you for such a wonderful recipe. Together with the Salisbury Steak crock pot recipe these are my family’s favorites.5 stars

    1. I am so glad you enjoyed this recipe! Those sound like tasty alterations, I bet the beer really gave it a great flavor!

    1. While I have only made the recipe as written, some readers have shared that they made the pork chops on high for 4 hours successfully. Let us know if you try it Caroline!

  65. I can’t wait to make this tomorrow. It’s looks deeee-lish!!! And my daughter loves to help cook supper.

    1. My 6 year old daughter wants it with stuffing though. She’s the chef so we will try it that way.

  66. When my daughter remarked, “Wow! This is falling off the bone,” I knew it would be good. Lots of taste and easy to prepare. My family and friends will see this meal many times in the future. YUM!5 stars

  67. This was absolutely delicious. My husband and friend’s enjoyed this dish ver much. It went well with egg noodles and brussel sprouts.5 stars

  68. Hi, could you edit the recipe to say “condensed” for the cream of soups? I bought condensed, but added water thinking the recipe called for full cream of soup. I only realized this was a mistake once I read the comments. I will still try it another night, but want to help avoid any other readers making the same mistake as me. Thanks!

  69. This is a keeper! My husband is a picky eater and he LOVED this and so did I. The made it as written and added a teaspoon of beef flavor better than bouillon, the gravy is fabulous but so are the tender juicy chops! I can’t wait to make it again.
    I emailed it to my mother in law to try.

    1. It put a smile on my face to know you emailed your mother in law to try the chops :) So happy your husband enjoyed them too.

  70. The reason why “Cream of Mushroom” soup et. al. hold up better than dairy in recipes is because there is almost no dairy in them (except for powdered cream, which is hardly the same). The look and feel of dairy is created with modified food starch, wheat flour, soy protein and vegetable oil. These don’t tend to separate like dairy does.

    Whether they can truly be considered food is a question we’ll save for another time…

  71. I love this recipe have to say, it one of my new favorites!! However, the gravy it makes ends up being a just slightly too thin and watery. What is a good way to thicken it up?5 stars

    1. I would suggest a cornstarch slurry to easily thicken it up. Mix equal parts cornstarch and water (a tablespoon or so should be enough) and turn the gravy on high. Whisk the slurry a little bit at a time until it reaches the consistency you’d like.


  72. Tried this the other day and we absolutely loved it! I made two small changes: First, I didn’t brown the chops, I just seasoned them and laid in the crock pot as directed raw. Second, rather than beef broth, I used 3/4 cup of beer with a teaspoon of Ham Base dissolved in it. I used half white mushrooms and half baby bella (small portabella) mushrooms. I gotta tell you those baby bella mushrooms had the most amazing taste and texture and, being browner than regular mushrooms, gave some nice color to the dish.5 stars

    1. I love baby bellas too, great addition! I’ll have to try it with beer sometime, I bet that added great flavor!

    1. You can but they tend to be a bit leaner so can dry out if overcooked. A fattier cut of meat would work better in this recipe.

  73. 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!5 stars

  74. 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!! :-))5 stars

  75. 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

    1. 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!

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

    1. 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.

  76. 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.5 stars

  77. 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.5 stars

        1. I have not tried this recipe with lamb chops so can’t say for sure. Please let us know if you try it Kerrie!

  78. 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.5 stars

  79. 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!5 stars

  80. 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!!   

  81. 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. 5 stars

  82. 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!5 stars

  83. 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. 5 stars

  84. 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!5 stars

  85. 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.5 stars

  86. 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 :)5 stars

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

    Thank you

  88. 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.4 stars

  89. 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.5 stars

  90. 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 book5 stars

  91. 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.  5 stars

  92. 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. 4 stars

  93. 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 5 stars

  94. 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. 3 stars

  95. 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.5 stars

  96. 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!!

  97. 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.

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

  99. 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.

  100. 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

  101. 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

    1. If your pork chops will fit (it should be no more than ⅔ full) I would suggest the 5 quart slow cooker. If your chops are large, I would use the 7.

  102. 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!

    1. 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.

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

  104. 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! :)

    1. 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

  105. 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!

  106. 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!

    1. I haven’t tried it so I can’t say for sure. I would suggest a thick shoulder chop if you do give it a try. I’d love to hear how it works out!


    2. If you have a timer (the kind you use for Christmas lights, etc.), set it to turn on and off for the desired cooking time. A timer comes in handy for use with slow cookers.

  107. 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.

  108. 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?

    1. 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.

  109. 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?

  110. 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.

    1. 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!

  111. 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!

  112. 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!

  113. 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!

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

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

    1. I’ve done 6 before and left the rest of the ingredients as is. I found there was enough sauce for us this way.

  116. 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?

    1. 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.

    2. 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!

  117. 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!
