About Crock Pot Ranch Pork Chops

Crock Pot Ranch Pork Chops have become the newest addition to our dinner rotation because they answer my three main requirements:

They’re easy (check!)

They’re delicious (check check!)

They make great leftovers (check x 3!)

And honestly, isn’t that what we all want in a meal? After a long, busy day, the last thing I want to do is feel trapped in the kitchen and making boneless pork chops in a crock pot (with cream of mushroom and ranch seasonings for that added dose of flavor) is my new way to find more relaxation time in my day.

Plus, it certainly doesn’t hurt that everyone in my house loves how they taste.

What’s in crockpot ranch pork chops?

In order to have your crock pot cooking up this delicious dinner, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • Cream of mushroom soup – Creates the base of the sauce that the pork chops cook in. You could also switch this up for a different flavor of “cream of” soup, if you’d like.
  • Cream cheese – Like the soup, also helps in making an extra creamy sauce.
  • Dried parsley, dried dill weed, garlic powder, onion powder, dried basil, and black pepper – Core ingredients for creating that ranch flavor!
  • White wine – Adds some moisture so that the pork will cook tenderly. You can use cooking wine or even one of your favorite sipping wines. You can also substitute this for an equal measurement of chicken broth.
  • Fresh parsley and cooked rice or pasta – Totally optional, but great for serving! It turns this main dish into a whole meal.

Should the pork be boneless or bone-in?

I chose to make boneless pork chops in a crock pot for this recipe, but ultimately, picking boneless or bone-in is totally up to you.

However, if you’re on the fence on which to choose, here are a few pros and cons:

  • With boneless, there’s no need to worry about picking out the bones. They’re easier to serve and will be easier on your budget.
  • With bone-in, you get the added flavor of cooking with the bone, which can sometimes make or break a recipe. However, crock pots will make the meat very tender and a hard bone can sometimes cause the meat to fall apart while serving.

Can you use a ranch packet instead?

Yes, you can use a ranch packet instead of the herbs (dried parsley, dried dill, garlic powder, onion powder, dried basil, and black pepper) BUT if you do this you might also need to increase the white wine from 1/3 cup to 2/3 or 3/4 cup.

When mixing, start out adding 1/3 cup and do a taste test. Only add more white wine if you find the ranch flavor overpowering. If it is, add another 1/3 cup and see if it helps. Continue adding white wine until you find a balance you like. If needed, you can go up to a total of 1 whole cup of white wine help even out the flavor.

How long to cook pork chops in a crock pot?

For this recipe, the “standard” crock pot times apply:

If cooking on HIGH, cook for four hours.

If cooking on LOW, cook for eight hours.

As for my personal recommendation, I think the pork chops come out better when cooked on LOW. So if you have the time to spare, I highly recommend setting aside eight full hours for cooking.

What to serve with crock pot pork chops

You can serve these pork chops on a bed of pasta as pictured (I used spaghetti but you can also use linguine or angel hair) OR you can whip up some white or brown rice instead.

How long are ranch pork chops good for?

Once prepared and cooled, these crockpot pork chops can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to three to five days.

Can you freeze this dish?

Bad news here, guys. This recipe utilizes cream cheese to create the sauce, and because of this, I can’t recommend freezing this recipe. The consistency of cream cheese changes considerably upon freezing and thawing, ruining the creaminess of this creamed corn.

This next part is only a photo tutorial of the recipe steps. If you’re looking for the full recipe measurements and instructions, scroll down to Recipe Details.

The true beauty of a crock pot recipe is how easy they are to make, and cooking pork chops in a crock pot is a perfect example.

Step 1 – Mix up the creamy ranch by adding cream of mushroom, cream cheese, dried parsley, dried dill, garlic powder, onion powder, dried basil, and black pepper to a small bowl and mixing together. I like to use a hand mixer on low to break up the cream cheese, but you can also use a spatula and some elbow grease.

Step 2 – Pour in the white wine (or chicken broth) and mix it with the cream until the liquid is absorbed.

Step 3 – Add your pork chops to your crock pot, arranging them in an even layer.

Step 4 – Spread the creamy ranch mixture on top of the pork chops. Only worry about covering the tops – as the pork chops bake, the sauce will melt and coat the sides of the pork.

Step 5 – Cover and cook.

Step 6 – Serve and enjoy!

    Hi! This has my mouth watering! I have a package of the thin boneless pork chops, i lm curious if the cooking time should be altered? Thanks so much for sharing this recipe we can’t wait to try it tonight!

    • Andrea

    Can you make this in the oven? Or make the porkchops in the oven and the mix on the stove? I would love to make this but don’t have a crock pot!

    • Hey Andrea! Unfortunately, I personally don’t have a recipe for making this any other way than in a slow cooker.

    • CM

    The ranch isn’t mentioned in the actual recipe. How much and when do you add it?

    • Hey CM! This recipe uses a variety of seasonings to create ranch flavor (dried parsley, dried dill, garlic powder, onion powder, dried basil, and black pepper) but you can substitute these for a ranch packet if you’d like. But if you use a ranch packet, you may want to increase the white wine from 1/3 cup to roughly 2/3 cup.

    Love this recipe! Can you replace the pork chops with chicken breast and cook for the same amount of time?

    • I haven’t personally tried this, but, in theory, yes, you should be able to substitute pork for chicken. The 4 HIGH / 8 LOW hour cook time is pretty standard for most slow cooker meals, even for those with chicken. If you have any worries, you can always use a meat thermometer to confirm that the chicken’s internal temp is at least 165 degrees F.

    • Deborah Campman

    Was wondering if you can use cream of chicken soup instead of mushroom.

    • Yes, you totally can! Cream of chicken is the best substitute for the cream of mushroom.

    • Kathy

    I’m planning to make this tomorrow. If doubling t he gravy do you also double the spices. Would homemade spaetzle be good with this recipe?

    • Kathy

    I’m planning to make this tomorrow. If doubling t he gravy do you also double the spices and should I also add the ranch seasoning. Would homemade spaetzle be good with this recipe?

    Omg, this was so good!!! I could have eaten just the gravy by itself! I did bone in chops, ranch packet, and 1 cup of chicken broth because that is what I had.. Everything else I followed as written.. Will definitely make this again. Thank you!

    • JoAnne Farber

    I am missing how much ranch to use.

    • Hey Kathy! Yes, when doubling the recipe, double everything that’s included in the ingredient list. As far as spaetzle – I have not personally tried this, but I think it should do well! If you’re worried how the structure of the pasta will hold up, just serve it on the side instead of serving the pork chops and sauce on top.

    • Terri

    The cream cheese is not mentioned in the instructions. I did not realize until I had already poured the mixture onto my pork chops.

    • So, so sorry about this! I’ve fixed the instructions to be more clear. Thanks for letting me know, but so very sorry you found the error this way 🙁

    • Kayla

    Could this be frozen afterwards or not cooked/frozen?

    • Sherry Shaefer

    This was good! Loved the seasoning. I read comments and decided to double gravy. I used white wine for both. I used Ranch seasoning and just did the same measurements as recipe. I added sautéed mushrooms also. Very good!!

    This was SO good. I could make this once a week. I used cream of mushroom/chicken (its combined in one can) and used chicken broth and it came out perfect. I also used the ranch packet and it worked out great.

    • Liz

    The cream cheese isn’t mentioned when to add, in the instructions, but we’re to assume that it in mixed in sometime since we’re told to break the clumps up…

      • Theresa

      I noticed the same Liz. But I figure it out when they spoke about the ” clumps” in it.

    • Lee

    I find the recipe hard to read with the black background. Think it shouldn’t be black.

    Good recipe! The boneless pork chops were tender! I plan to make it again.
