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.

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.

Step 1 – Mix up the creamy ranch by adding cream of mushroom, dried parsley, dried dill, garlic powder, onion powder, dried basil, and black pepper to a small bowl and mixing together.

    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.

    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.
