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.

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.
