I have always considered having a group of easy yet delicious recipes on hand as a part of self care. It can mean less stress when trying to get dinner on the table as well as a way to encourage more quality time with the people you love and less temptation for unhealthy fast food options. That being said, I’m going to share my favorite pork chops recipe with you.
This is a warm and filling dish so it’s perfect for the fall weather. Even better? It’s virtually no prep time!
It’s really as simple as combining a few easy to find/afford ingredients into your crock pot and wait. Then you just have to figure out your sides. I’ve served these pork chops over rice with some steamed veggies and I’ve served them with potatoes and a salad. They’d even work well with pasta! Regardless, they will be juicy and tender and fall apart on your fork. No knife required.
Just make sure to plug your crock pot in!
It seems obvious, but I literally made this mistake this week. About a half hour before dinner time, my stomach was growling and I was practically drooling for these pork chops. My husband walked into the room and informed me that he was just in the kitchen and noticed that the crock pot was still cold. While I had pressed the power button six and half hours earlier, I had never actually plugged the damn thing in.
Big time mom fail.
Anyway, to get these perfect pork chops, you’re going to want to buy a nice thick cut, bone out. This recipe is for four, but you can definitely double it to do eight if you have a larger family. You’re going to pepper both sides of the pork chop and pop them into the crock pot. Cover with a combo of chicken broth, cream of chicken, garlic and ranch dressing powder (see recipe below for quantities) and cook. That’s it! You can either cook on high for about 4 hours or on low for 7. I like to do the low setting because I feel like they really absorb more of the flavor that way, but I’ve done both and they’re always delicious.
IT’S SO SIMPLE!
Another awesome discovery that I’ve made is crock pot liners. You can get them pretty much anywhere- Target, Walmart, Amazon, etc- for $3 or less. You just pop it in before you start filling the crock pot and it makes clean up a breeze afterwards! I cannot recommend these enough. No more scrubbing!
Without further ado… here’s that recipe:
Fall Apart Pork Chops
- Crock Pot
- 4 Thick Cut Boneless Pork Chops
- ½ cup Chicken Broth
- 10 ½ ounces Crema of Chicken Soup
- 1 once Ranch Seasoning/Dressing Powder
- 1 teaspoon Minced Garlic or Garlic Powder
- Black Pepper to taste
- Rub both sides of each pork chop with the black pepper.
- Place pork chops in crock pot.
- Combine cream of chicken, chicken broth, ranch powder and garlic and pour over pork chops.
- Cook on high for four hours or on low for seven hours.
- Serve and enjoy.
