Ingredients To Make This Pork Chop Recipe

Having a well stocked pantry is key to making easy dinner recipes like this one. We always try to have a few staples on hand so that we don’t have to constantly run out to the store.

  • Boneless Pork Chops: Because these pork chops are simmered in a crock pot with a juicy brown gravy, these pork chops aren’t going to be dry in any way. They’ll turn out so tender you can cut them with a fork!
  • Onion Soup Mix: Dry soup mix is one of our pantry staples, we use it in everything from meatloaf recipes to appetizer recipes like these Cheeseburger Meatballs.
  • Beef Broth: Find the best tasting beef broth at the store to give this gravy the most flavor. A bone broth or a beef stock would add the most flavor, broths do tend to be weaker but there are a few store brands that are really tasty.
  • Cream of Mushroom Soup: Another pantry staple, we always have condensed soups on hand for making casseroles or side dish recipes!
  • Powdered Beef Gravy: These little packets are sold in he spice aisle or sometimes in the salad dressing aisle. We buy ours in large containers because we use this ingredient in many different recipes.

    Excellent, delicious recipe! I had it on hand to try it with pork chops, but we ended up using veal chops last night. They were phenomenal and certainly remarkable! Thank you!

    We just had these for dinner. The pork chops were excellent! Everyone loved them and SOOOOO easy to make. I highly recommend trying this recipe!

    Seriously fantastic. BTW, if you add an entire packet of brown gravy instead of just a few tablespoons (a 2oz pack in my case) then all you need to do is turn the heat off when its done and let it settle for about 5 minutes. The sauce will already be thickened into a gravy.

    This recipe works just fine with a 3lb value pack of thick cut pork chops on high for 4 hours in the crockpot. The end result was so tender I could cut the pork with a spoon. It fell apart beautifully. I did not have cream of mushroom so I used my last can of cream of celery. Probably would have been even better with cream of mushroom. To compensate for having a more meat I added an entire packet of brown gravy. I did not measure the seasoning. I poured it directly on each pork chop based on the ingredients listed, and I used 1 packet of french onion dip as directed.

    I steamed a carrot, brocolli, and cauliflower blend with butter, salt and pepper and added over the top of each bowl.

    This will go in my regular dinner rotation.
