👩🏻🍳 Why You'll Love This Recipe
This recipe is one of my very favorites. It is easy and it is delicious! Enough said!
I was looking for a new way to serve pork chops. In the past I typically just sprinkled them with garlic salt and parsley flakes and broiled them. Maybe I would shake things up in the summertime and throw them on the grill. 🙂
The only thing easier than broiling is...crocking! So I whipped out my slow cooker and put together this recipe.
🥘 Ingredients Needed
- onion - white or yellow onion are both good options.
- pork chops - I like to use bone-in porkchops for this recipe.
- cream of mushroom soup - adds lots of flavor and creamy texture.
- fresh mushrooms - for some added nutrition and that distinct mushroom taste.
- black pepper
- Place your onion in the bottom of the slow cooker.
- Layer the pork chops over top and sprinkle with pepper. It's okay if the pork chops overlap a bit.
- Add mushrooms.
- Spread the mushroom soup over top, then cook on low for 5 to 6 hours.
If you find that your pork chops tend to get dry or you want some extra flavor, you can sear the porkchops before cooking them in the slow cooker to add flavor, retain moisture, and help keep seasonings in place.
Yes, it is possible to overcook! Pork chops should reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees F, so you may want to start checking around the 5 hour mark to ensure you only cook them as much as you have to.
Cooking them on low for a longer time is a great way to combat drying out, which is more likely to happen if you cook them at a higher temperature for shorter. You may also want to dredge them in flour and seasonings, which can help keep moisture in.
The mushroom soup in these crock pot smothered pork chops also prevent drying out, but if you still find your pork chops are dry, you can try adding a splash of your broth of choice.
💭 Expert Tips and Tricks
- If you're really worried about your pork chops drying out, you can turn off the crock pot when they hit an internal temperature of about 140 degrees F. Keep it covered and the residual heat should do the rest of the job.
- Bone-in chops with some good marbling typically yield the best results when it comes to tenderness and flavor in the slow cooker.
- Several cuts of pork would work well for this recipe, including shoulder, sirloin, or a blade chop.
These easy cream of mushroom pork chops are so simple to prepare and cook in the slow cooker all day for an easy and healthy meal that's ready to serve by dinner time!
📖 Substitutions and Variations
- You can use boneless pork chops, but try to choose chops that are on the thicker side and still have some marbling.
- For some extra flavor, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of dill weed. You can also use fresh dill if you have it on hand.
- Any kind of condensed soup will work for this recipe, but I like the flavor of cream of mushroom paired with the pork chops.
- You can add a number of seasonings to switch up the flavors: paprika, garlic salt, onion powder, oregano, or even ranch dressing mix.
- Serve over rice, noodles, or mashed potatoes.
🥫 Storage and Reheating
Store leftovers in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. You can easily reheat these pork chops in the microwave, or reheat in a pan. Adding a bit of milk or cream can help think out the refrigerated sauce.
These crock pot pork chops with mushroom soup also freeze well.
💡 What To Serve With This Dish
Serve these pork chops over some Lemon Dill Rice for a full dinner, or pair with a Kale Caesar Salad for a quick and healthy meal! For something a little fancier, serve alongside a Cornbread Casserole or with Bacon Wrapped Asparagus.
