Crockpot ranch pork chops are a delicious dinner that’s family-friendly and easy on the wallet. You only need 5 minutes of prep before the slow cooker goes to work, so this comfort food is super-easy to make!
For this recipe, you can use boneless or bone-in pork chops. You can also add halved potatoes to the crock pot if you wish.
How to Make Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops
You only need 3 simple ingredients to make crock pot pork chops with ranch dressing:
- Pork chops: Pick 4-6 fresh boneless pork chops about 1-inch thick with a nice pink color. You can also use bone-in pork chops.
- Cream of mushroom soup: One 1-oz can (284 ml) is enough, either regular or low-fat. If you use a low sodium soup, add a ½ teaspoon salt.
- Ranch dressing mix: A 1-ounce packet is all you need. Brands such as Hidden Valley or Clubhouse work fine.
Place the pork chops into the slow cooker and add the soup and ranch mix on top. Seal the crock pot lid and cook for 3 hours on High or 5 hours on Low.
The pork chops should be soft and tender when done. You can always check doneness by inserting an instant-read thermometer in the middle to check for an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C).
Can I Make Them Without Soup?
Yes, you definitely can make this dish without canned soup. Simply add 3-4 tablespoons of butter along with ½ cup of chicken broth or water to the crockpot. Optionally you can include a tablespoon of heavy cream or cream cheese for a thicker sauce.
Can I Use Frozen Pork Chops?
No, it’s considered unsafe to put frozen meat in the crock pot because of the risk of spoilage. Read our post on how to use a slow cooker for more information.
Tips for Making Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops
- Thicker cut pork chops will be the most tender although any thickness ½-inch to 1 ½-inch will do.
- Try not to pierce or cut into the pork chops while cooking, as juices will leak out making the meat drier.
- Avoid removing the lid of the crock pot during cooking, as it takes 20-30 minutes to get back up to temperature each time.
What to Serve with Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops:
- Mashed potatoes or rice or noodles
- Broccoli or other vegetables

Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops
- 4 boneless pork chops, 1-inch thick, or bone-in pork chops
- 10 oz cream of mushroom soup, 1 can*
- 1 oz ranch dressing mix, 1 packet
- Place the pork chops in the crock pot.
- Pour the cream of mushroom soup over the chops and sprinkle the ranch mix on top.
- Cover and seal the lid of the crock pot. Set to Low Heat for 5-6 hours or High Heat for 3-4 hours until tender. Note that thicker pork chops will need the full amount of time.
- Optional: Check doneness by inserting an instant-read thermometer into the middle of a pork chop. It’s done when it reads 145°F (63°C).
- Garnish with fresh parsley (optional) and serve.
- * You can also use cream of chicken soup instead. If you have an 18-oz can of soup, you can use it all to have extra sauce.
- Ranch pork chops with potatoes: Add quartered or halved potatoes to the crock pot with the pork chops. All-purpose potatoes like Yukon Golds or Red Golds work well as do waxy potatoes like Round Red, Round White and Fingerling.
- Make it keto: Canned cream soups usually contain cornstarch, which is not compatible with a ketogenic diet. Instead, use 3-4 tablespoons of butter and 1 cup of chicken broth or water with 1 tablespoon of cream to thicken.
- Make ahead tip: You can cook this dish ahead of time and freeze for up to 2 months in a resealable plastic bag. Then thaw for and reheat on low-medium heat for 15-20 minutes.

Wonder if I could use a packet of zesty Italian seasoning instead of ranch with the cream of mushroom soup?
Hi Sonya, Thanks for your question and yes, you could absolutely try that. They will be tangier and less creamy. Hope that helps!
really good! I browned the meat before putting it in the crockpot and then caramelized onions and added to the crockpot – served over noodles – yummy – will definitely make it again. Quick and easy – thank you
Hi Renee, Great to hear and thanks for your feedback!
The caramelized onions sound great. Does it over cook onions to caramelize then also cook in crockpot? Just curious. Making sure I read you right.
Thank you in advance.
Oh my godness! This was delicious! Can’t wait to have it again. I actually used cream of broccoli soup because I had it and it was delicious! Thanks for a great recipe.
Hi Linda, Excellent – glad to hear congrats! I haven’t tried Cream of Broccoli soup on this one, so appreciate the feedback.
This recipe was not only easy but delicious. Family said to put this recipe on rotation.
Is there a reason why you sprinkle ranch seasoning on top of soup and not just mix together and pour over?
Hi Sharon, Thanks for your question. You can actually do it either way and it will turn out great. Hope that helps!
These were delicious! SOOOO much flavor – definitely will be making again.
Hi Justine, Glad to hear and thanks for your comment!
What would be the macros for keto?
Hi Simone, Thanks for your question. I’d recommend using this calculator for macros: https://www.ruled.me/keto-calculator/
Looks delicious. Would love to try these ingredients but I don’t have a crock pot. What’s the directions for cooking in a skillet or in the oven? Thanks.
Hi Kazy, Thanks for your question! It’d be tricky to adapt this recipe – a Dutch oven at 250 deg F should work although I haven’t tried it with this particular recipe. I’d strongly suggest getting a crock pot, as they’re very inexpensive and useful. Good luck!
Unfortunately I don’t have the room for one so I am stuck cooking the old fashioned way and since I’m retired, there’s no convenience for me to cook something that long. But thanks anyway. I’ll try to find a conversion chart and see if I can adjust the recipe.
