Easy Slow Cooker Pork Chops {5 Ingredients}

Only 5 ingredients needed to make these Easy Slow Cooker Pork Chops. These pork chops always turn out tender and never dry. Works with both boneless and bone-in pork chops.

crock pot pork chops with veggies

Your slow cooker will become your best friend after this Easy Crock Pot Pork Chop recipe!

I love “dump-and-go” recipes that take only minutes to throw together and then cook slow all day in the crockpot. This recipe has become a tried-and-true favorite.

What kind of pork chops are best?

When it comes to choosing the best pork chops for this crockpot recipe, I would recommend a THICK (3/4″ – 1″) boneless pork chop or a bone-in pork chop.

Thin cut pork chops will not work for this crock pot pork chop recipe and will most likely turn out dry. The low-and-slow method of cooking in this recipe will dry them out every time.

Using a thick boneless pork chop will cook a little faster than a bone-in chop, so if you know that your slow cooker cooks hot or fast, you may want to decrease the time a little bit.

In the picture, I used a thick boneless pork chop, but my favorite pork chop to use in the slow cooker is a BONE-IN pork chop. The more marbled and fatty your pork chop is, the more tender it will be after cooking.

Do NOT overcook the pork chops

Pork chops tend to have a reputation of being dried out. The secret to slow cooker pork chops is to be sure to not overcook them.

I recommend cooking these pork chops for 3 hours on high heat or 6 hours on low heat. If your slow cooker tends to cook things fast, check them at 2 hours on high heat or 4-5 hours on low heat.

The FDA recommends that the internal temperature of a pork chop should be 145 degrees F, but I could pull them out at 140 degrees. Place them on a plate and cover with aluminum foil (like you would after grilling pork chops). The internal temperature will continue to rise if you do this and will help prevent over-cooking.

I would highly recommend getting a simple meat thermometer if you don’t have one. It makes cooking any type of meat so easy and you will always know that it is the perfect temperature. I use it for every grilling dish I make!


Can you use frozen pork chops for this recipe?

If you want, you can use frozen pork chops for this crock pot recipe.

I would recommend adding 30-60 minutes to the cook time or just use a meat thermometer to make sure that it has reached a safe internal temperature and is fully cooked.


Substitutes for the cream soup

If you do not have cream of chicken soup on hand, two of my favorite substitutes are Cream of Mushroom soup or Cream of Potato soup.

If you want to make your own Cream of Chicken soup, check out this homemade recipe.


Add vegetables to the slow cooker

If you want to make these crock pot pork chops a full meal in your slow cooker, add these vegetables to your slow cooker and let them cook with the pork chops:

  • 4-5 red potatoes, cut into quarters
  • 1 pound baby carrots
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 stalks celery, diced

Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix

If you don’t have a packet of ranch dressing mix on hand, you can make your own!

In a small bowl, mix together 4 Tablespoons dried parsley, 2 teaspoons dried dill weed, 2 teaspoons garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper. Place the mixture in an air tight container.

To use as a substitute for a 1 ounce packet of ranch dressing mix, measure out 1 1/2 Tablespoons for the recipe.

    I'm new to cooking and this looks easy enough! I have some chops in my freezer right now. do they need to thaw first or just put them in? also, my boyfriend doesn't like ranch (which sucks cuz I'm pretty much in love with it). do you have any flavor suggestions as an alternative?
    • Six Sisters
      If you put them in frozen, you would want to cook them a little longer and as soon as they are thawed make sure they are not sticking together. Spread them out in the crock pot. The ranch just adds a yummy flavor, it won't taste like you're eating salad with ranch dressing all over it. Hope this helps! -The Six Sisters
  2. I made these for dinner tonight. A-MA-ZING. I had extra pork chops, so I added a little extra broth and a can of cream of mushroom soup, as well as an onion. I didn't salt the pork as advised, and I was really glad I didn't...it would have been waaaaay too salty. This was delicious!! I served it with basmati rice and roasted asparagus. My family was pleased, and it was ridiculously easy. THANKS FOR A GREAT RECIPE!!

    This is the 3rd recipe from your website I've tried to cut and paste ingredients into my shopping list. It won't let me. I'm not stealing your recipe; I'm just trying to get my errands done as quickly as possible. I won't be coming back to your site. I know you don't care. I actually was going to buy your cookbook, but oh well. There are a lot less paranoid bloggers and chefs out there.
  4. Referring to Paulette's question (7/19/2015)...I like to brown all meats that I cook in a crockpot, I would think it can't hurt to lightly brown the porkchops first. I can't wait to try this recipe using low fat cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of chicken.

    I love the crockpot! Originally, I found this recipe through my mother in law. Thanks, Doris! I have it in the crockpot for supper tonight and my hubby is out of town for training through his work. He was teasingly telling me to shove it because he loves this dish too! It is smelling so good in here with it slowly perking! Sandy Rahlfs
