Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops Ingredients
Substitutions And Additions
BONELESS PORK CHOPS: The instructions below are for bone-in pork chops, but this pork chop recipe can also be made with boneless pork chops. Simply cut the potatoes in eighths (so that they cook through) and lower the cooking time to 4 to 6 hours on low or 2 to 3 hours on high.
CANNED SOUP: Transform this into a creamy, comfort food dinner by adding some canned soup. Cream of mushroom soup tastes best, added on top of the pork chops before cooking. This will give the dish an extra creamy sauce.
CREAM CHEESE: You can also add a package of cream cheese for added creaminess. If you love the milky flavors of Ranch dressing, this is a must-try. Here’s how: melt the butter and cream cheese in the microwave. Then add it, along with all of the other ingredients, plus a can of cream of mushroom soup to your crockpot.
