Scroll to the bottom for the full recipe and ingredients in the recipe card.

Variations Ideas

  • Mushroom Gravy – For an even creamier sauce, you can add in heavy cream.
  • Seasoning – An onion soup mix packet is full of flavor and can be added in place of chopped onion or onion powder if you have it. You can also add in fresh herbs such as fresh thyme or fresh parsley.
  • Broth – Instead of beef broth you can also use chicken broth or chicken stock.

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1 – 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.
  • Step 2 – 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.
  • Step 3 – Next, pour the liquid into the crock pot.
  • Step 4 – Finally, cover the crock pot and cook the pork chops 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. Season with salt and pepper and serve.

Recipe Tips

  • Crock Pot Recommendation – 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.
  • Pork Chops – 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.
  • Cook Time – Cook time will vary depending on the size of the pork chops and your crock pot. Use a meat thermometer to ensure they are cooked with an internal temperature of 145 degrees.

Serving Suggestions

  • Mashed potatoes, rice or egg noodles. The rich onion gravy is amazing so you will want something to spoon it over.
  • Vegetables- We like to steam broccoli in the microwave. The kids spoon the sauce over it and gobble it up! The sauce is that amazing. Roasted green beans or brussels sprouts are also really delicious.
  • Bread- Grab rolls from the bakery or make these easy dinner rolls. The sauce is so amazing that you will want something to cip into it.

You are going to love how good the gravy come out. You are going to love this recipe, so make sure you add it to your weekly menu. Check out more Pork Chop Sides to serve.

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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Can I Use other Pork Chops?

Yes, feel free to make this recipe with other types of pork chops. We usually use thick cut pork chops that are boneless but you can also use bone-in pork chops. Pork loin chops are also a great option as well.

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

  3. Carrie Barnard says:

    yes if it comes out watery you can do do a cornstarch slurry to thicken it up.

    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.

  7. Carrie Barnard says:

    Yes you can.

  8. Carrie says:

    Could I use Chicken broth instead of beef broth ?

    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!!

  11. Sara says:

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

  12. Molly says:

    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!!

    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. ?

    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.

  15. Carrie Barnard says:

    Yes, I think you can. I think that would taste amazing.

  16. Rachel says:

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

  17. Carrie Barnard says:

    So glad you loved it!

    Just made this for dinner but I added a good shake of old bay seasoning and seasoned salt in lieu of table salt. This recipe was very simple and tasted amazing! Additionally, in place of rice or noodles, I used a stove top stuffing. My granddaughter and her boyfriend were equally impressed!

    This recipe is SO delicious! My sister actually made a freezer bag for me and now I male this recipe about 2 to 3 times per month. Thanks for this recipe! It’s definitely a budget friendly meal as well. Megan.kielb@gmail.com

  37. DeAnna says:

    Can you substitute the onion soup mix for onion soup out of a can.bc our grocery isles are bare and we can’t find the onion soup dry mix

  38. Lisa says:

    Tried this last night, it was great! Even the picky 17 year old liked it. Served it with rice, but I think it would be better with egg noodles, so will try that next time! Thanks for sharing!

  39. Rhonda says:

    Looks awesome! I work from home and love to use my “set it and forget it” method of making sure hubby gets a yummy dinner before the day gets away from me. Thanks for the great idea.
