Crockpot Pork Chops and Gravy

Our AC went out last night.  For some of you who are enjoying the amazing crisp air that fall provides, this may not seem like a big thing.  However, for those of you who are still experiencing this sweltering, unrelenting heat, there was sure to be a surge of panic in you when you hear me say "OUR AC WENT OUT LAST NIGHT!!!"
Luckily AC-Man is coming any minute now.  Sitting here feeling the heat in the house climb and climb to over 79 degrees now (at 10:00am), I am reminded how THANKFUL I am for crockpot meals.  Ahhh, to have comfort food without heating up your entire house or slaving over a store for hours and hours to produce such scrumptiousness.
This recipe was given to me by my friend Jill of Sublime Hodge Podge, who told me in no uncertain terms that I MUST make these and if I didn't experience these sent from heaven morsels, I would be doomed to a life of nothingness, blandness, bleakness....or something like that.  So, here you are....the worlds easiest Pork Chop and Gravy recipe.  Consider this your PSA for the day, try not to lick the crockpot while the heavenly aroma of the gravy starts wafting through your home!

  • 4 whole Bone-in Pork Chops
  • 1 envelope Onion Soup Mix (1 Oz. Packet)
  • 1-½ cup Chicken Broth....definitely use low sodium
  • 1 can (10.5 Oz) Cream Of Chicken Soup....definitely use low sodium
  • 1 envelope Dry Pork Gravy Mix (1 Oz. Packet)
  • Optional - I added a can of drained mushrooms and a tsp of Italian Herb Seasoning

Place pork chops in slow cooker. In a separate bowl, mix remaining ingredients and pour over chops. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Serve with egg noodles, mashed potatoes, or rice to take advantage of all the yummy gravy.

  2. lol these truly are killer pork chops! We're having them again this week by request! hahaha I've never had fork tender chops where you didn't even need a knife. I was just amazed. Man, your picture looks good even though I"m allergic to 'shrooms! :P

  6. Can the pork chops go in the crock pot frozen??

  7. Yummy!!!! I made this today, and my husband text me at work just to tell me how delicious they are. I LOVED them as well!! Will definitely be making this again. And I did put my chops in frozen, just cooked on high for a few hours, then moved it down to low. :)
