Crock Pot Ranch Pork Chops have just three ingredients but will leave you with flavorful, juicy pork chops for dinner. I will make these any day of the week. With the drippings from the crock pot, you can create a quick gravy and serve with mashed potatoes.
Crock Pot Ranch Pork Chops
The three ingredients are simple: pork chops, butter, and ranch dressing mix. That is it. It is that simple
Butter you ask? Well, when everyone went all health crazy, they wanted to cut fat from their diet. So, today we have very lean pork. Too lean personally, but we are healthier thanks to the lean pork, right? Well, maybe not. Whenever I cook a lean piece of pork like the pork chops that normally have minimal fat around it I add fat. It is no different with these pork chops.
Season the pork chops generously with the ranch seasoning. I used three tablespoons total. I buy bulk dressing mix, however one envelope would also be the equivalent. I used a stick of butter but you could safely use just four tablespoons of butter.
Then it is all up to the crock pot. I cooked on low for 6 hours. You could go a pinch longer. Again pork chops can be easy to dry out, even with butter, so don't let them cook for 12 hours unless you planning on them being closer to a pulled pork type meat.
Serve up with some mashed potatoes and make some quick gravy. To make the gravy, I took ¼ cup of the juices from the crock pot and mixed a heaping tablespoon of cornstarch with a cup of milk. Simmer over medium heat till thickened. You could also use two tablespoons of flour to make a roux with the crock pot juices and slowly add the cup of milk. Add more milk if you want a thinner gravy.

Hi to all, the contents present at this website are truly awesome for people knowledge, well, keep up the nice work fellows.
ok...I'm trying this for dinner tonight....my kind of # of ingredients...OH I HOPE, I HOPE it is as delicious as it seems it will be!!!!! (I had 5 chops, but was able to still just make 2 levels...should be ok)
outcome....DELICIOUS!!!!!! However...good thing I checked them at 4 hours because they were done, baby, done!!
Made this tonight and I was amazing even the gravy from drippings. Two thumbs up
No mention of any liquid added to the crock pot in the beginning. Should some form of liquid be used???
I made this today hoping it would turn out well. I actually had 7 bone-in chops. Anyway, the prep was so easy. I ended up with 3 layers in my crockpot and I added some quartered potatoes that needed to be cooked. Let me tell you it turned out beautifully and so delicious. My husband loved it. I daresay the leftovers will disappear quickly.
I have a question i usually make twice the amount but my question is if i add potatoes to crockpot with it will it take longer n do i have to use soups because i dont like too?
First time cooking pork chops in the crockpot. They were tender and juicy but didn’t have as much flavor as I was hoping for from the ranch mix.
