How to cook bone in Pork Chops in the Crock Pot?

When making this recipe, I usually cook boneless pork chops. But you can definitely use bone in pork chops.

Bone in pork usually take a little longer to cook. I would cook closer to the 8 hour mark to ensure that your pork chops are done.

Ingredients needed for smothered pork chops - pork chops, sliced mushrooms, sliced onions, cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, beef broth, minced garlic, paprika pepper


  • Boneless Pork Chops
  • Sliced Mushrooms
  • Sliced Onions
  • Cream of Mushroom Soup – We love this easy homemade cream of mushroom soup.
  • Cream of Chicken Soup – Try homemade cream of chicken.
  • Beef Broth
  • Minced Garlic – Garlic powder can also be used.
  • Paprika
  • Pepper

How to make crock pot smothered pork chops:

  • First, put the pork chops in the crock pot. Place the mushrooms and onion all over the pork. This is going to give it so much amazing flavor.
  • Second, get a mixing bowl and mix the cream of chicken and cream of mushroom together with the broth and seasonings to make the brown gravy. I like to use a whisk to make sure everything is mixed well.

  • Next, pour the liquid into the crock pot.
  • Finally, cover the crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours. You can also cook on high if you prefer for 3-4 hours. The pork needs to have an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Pork Chops will come out golden brown.

Why are my smothered pork chops tough?

Pork Chops are a lean cut meat. If they are not cooked properly they could turn very tough. Even a few minutes to long could result in tough meat. Rather you are grilling, baking or using the crock pot be sure that you cooking the correct amount of length.

We like using a meat thermometer to ensure that they do not turn dry. Cooking in the crock pot should prevent the pork chops turning tough. As the crock pot allows you for to cook slowly so that you get the most tender pork chop.

How to freeze:

  • Put all ingredients in your labeled freezer bag and place in the freezer.
  • Place the contents of the bag into the crockpot (ingredients can be thawed or frozen) and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

We love to make freezer meals to enjoy during busy weeks. You might want to use these Freezer bag holders. If you love freezer meals, try out our Lazy Day Cooking Club where we can help you make delicious dinners in minutes instead of hours.

It is like having another set of hands in the kitchen and really helps fill the bags.

Tips for smothered pork chops:

  • Most of my recipes are created in a 6 quart crock pot, but I love my 4 quart crock pot for small dishes. Now, if you work away from home, then I suggest you get a programmable crock pot so you can have it cook for the perfect amount of time.
  •  Crockpot liners- So handy and makes cleanup a breeze.
  • You can use bone in pork chops instead of boneless. I like to use what is on sale or already in the freezer.
  • I would not use the thin pork chops as they will fall apart when serving. We like using the thick pork chops as the meat comes out fork tender.
  • For an even creamier sauce, you can add in heavy cream.
  • An onion soup mix packet is full of flavor and can be added in place of chopped onion if you have it.

How to store leftovers:

We love leftovers at our house. We usually don’t have that many since my family is large. But occasionally we do, and this is the perfect meal to store leftovers.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. This is one of my husbands meals to have leftovers.

  1. Crockpot smothered pork chops made the best pork chops my husband and I have ever had. Super simple. Will make again.

  2. Hi, Carrie! Could I add small potatoes in to cook with it in the crock pot? Or would that disrupt the recipe? Thanks! 🙂

  3. 5 stars
    I’m going to make this tonight! I read that cooking pork chops too long can make them tough? In my experience the longer they’re cooked the more tender they get. So I really make sure that pork chops are cooked a long time.

  4. 5 stars
    Yum yum and yum. I did need to season my chops some but other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. The chops were forking falling apart. ? will be keeping this recipe for another day. ?

  5. 4 stars
    Very good recipe overall, chops were fork tender and plenty of gravy! Could use some more seasoning imo but that’s an easy fix. Served over rice with a side of lemmon pepper buttered peas, my teen boys devoured it, very Filling!!

  6. Really enjoyed these pork chops. My husband ate 2. I’ll be making this again. Thanks!

  7. 5 stars
    This recipe was so good!!! All 3 of my kids loved it and rated it a 10/10 and that’s saying something lol. The only thing I had to alter was making a roux to thicken up the gravy in the crockpot. It was really runny so my roux consisted of 6 TBLS of butter per 6 TBLS of flour and it was perfect!! Thanks for such a tasty, simple recipe that’s gonna become a regular on our table!!

  8. 5 stars
    First time making this recipe. I stepped out of the box because I don’t really like pork chops or mushrooms. But, let me tell you. I went back for seconds. I made an oops when making it by setting the crockpot to high for 8 hours so the meat feel apart, but it was still amazing.

  9. 5 stars
    Love this recipe – added a tsp each of Rosemary & Thyme to the mixture. That really added flavor.
