How to Make 3 Ingredient Pork Chops
This is such an easy recipe that requires very little time. In fact, when I made this to post here, it took me longer to take the pictures than it did to actually put it all together.
The first thing you need to do to make this easy dinner is spray the bowl of your slow cooker. I like to do this to make cleanup easier.
Next, place pork chops on the bottom of the crockpot.
Since I used my small Crock Pot, they overlapped, which is fine.
Now sprinkle the ranch dressing mix over the top of the pork chops.
Since some of them overlapped, I lifted the top ones to make sure the meat on the bottom was seasoned.
Finally, pour all of the soup over the pork chops.
That’s all you have to do with the food.
Pop the lid on the Crock Pot and set it on high heat. Cook on high for an hour, then turn it down to low heat.
Cook the pork chops on low heat for 4 hours. The pork chops should be extremely tender. So if you want them intact and not falling apart, be careful when lifting them from the Crock Pot.
Please keep in mind that the cooking time may vary based on your slow cooker.
Plus it’s one of those recipes that can stay in the pot for an extra half hour without worry. It still comes out delicious!
Serve your pork chops over rice, on a bed of mashed potatoes, over egg noodles, or all by themselves. The soup make a wonderfully flavorful and creamy gravy for these yummy pork chops! They’re always a big hit when I serve them.
Frequently Asked Questions About Pork Chops
Cooking pork chops isn’t difficult. It’s actually even easy if you don’t overthink it.
Here are some questions you may have:
Should You Sear Pork Chops Before Putting Them in a Slow Cooker?
Sometimes I sear meat before adding it to the Crock Pot if I have time. However, it isn’t necessary. Searing the meat adds a browned texture, which may enhance the flavor. With a flavorful gravy, you might not even notice the difference.
Do Pork Chops Get Tough in the Crock Pot?
No, they don’t get tough. In fact, just the opposite happens. Slow cooking meat makes it so tender it often falls apart.
What is the Secret to Making Tender Pork Chops?
Cooking pork chops in your slow cooker tenderizes them. If you choose to cook them any other way, make sure you don’t overcook them.
If you cook them too long, they become dry and leathery tough. I use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature if I’m cooking them any way besides my slow cooker. It needs to be around 145˚ F.
Can You Make Pulled Pork from Pork Chops?
Yes, you absolutely can make pulled pork from pork chops. Cook them in a small amount of broth or salted water for several hours on low. The pork chops will become so tender that you can shred them with a couple of forks.
How Should You Store Leftover Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops?
If you have any leftover pork chops, put them in an airtight container and put them in the refrigerator. They should be good for up to 4 days.
The best part about having leftovers is being able to bring them to work the next day. You don’t need a knife because they’re so tender. And you will definitely look forward to lunchtime.
