Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops Ingredients

Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 4 to 6 bone-in pork chops
  • 4 tablespoons softened butter
  • 2 tablespoons Ranch seasoning, divided
  • 2 pounds baby potatoes, quartered
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, optional garnish

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 low for 4 to 6 hours or high for 2 to 3 hours.

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 some 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.

How To Make This Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops Recipe

STEP ONE: In a small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of ranch seasoning mix with the butter until well combined. Rub the ranch mixture onto the pork chops until they are completely covered.

STEP TWO: In a hot skillet, sear the pork chops on either side for about 30 seconds.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

If you’re short on time, you can leave this step out. This step is just to give the pork chops a nice brown sear.

STEP THREE: Place the potatoes in the slow cooker, pour in the broth and sprinkle the remaining 1 tablespoon of ranch seasoning. Place pork chops on top of the potatoes.

PRO TIP:

If you use boneless pork chops or a thinner cut of pork, chop your potatoes into eighths to make sure they cook through evenly.

STEP FOUR: Cover and cook on low heat for 6 to 8 hours or high for 3 to 4 hours. The pork chops should be cooked through to a safe temperature (145°F) and the potatoes tender. Optionally, garnish with parsley before serving.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I have to sear the pork chops first?

You don’t absolutely have to sear the pork chops if you are short on time. The benefit of searing the pork chops is that it gives them a nice brown color and a crispy texture on the outside. Since the pork chops are cooked completely in the slow cooker, this added texture is a tasty touch.

Can I freeze leftovers?

You can freeze leftovers in an airtight container for 2-3 months.

Can I use boneless pork chops instead?

To make this recipe with boneless pork chops, cut the potatoes in eighths (so that they cook through) and lower the cooking time to low for 4-6 hours or high for 2-3 hours.
