In the world of easy and delicious weeknight dinners, Slow Cooker Ranch Pork Chops reign supreme. This recipe is a game-changer for anyone looking to whip up a flavorful and tender meal with minimal effort. With the magic of a slow cooker and a simple ranch seasoning mix, you’ll create a dish that’s not only scrumptious but also a family favorite.

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 1 packet (about 1 ounce) of ranch seasoning mix
  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
  • Mashed potatoes or cooked rice (for serving, optional)

Instructions:

  1. Start by seasoning the pork chops with a pinch of salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Sear the pork chops for about 2-3 minutes on each side until they develop a golden-brown crust. This step enhances the flavor and texture of the pork chops.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the ranch seasoning mix, condensed cream of chicken soup, and chicken broth. Mix until the ingredients are well incorporated.
  4. Place the seared pork chops in the bottom of your slow cooker.
  5. Pour the ranch seasoning mixture over the pork chops, ensuring they are well covered.
  6. Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until the pork chops are tender and cooked through. The slow cooking process allows the meat to become incredibly juicy and flavorful.
  7. About 30 minutes before serving, stir in the sour cream. This adds a creamy and tangy element to the dish.
  8. Serve the Slow Cooker Ranch Pork Chops hot, garnished with freshly chopped parsley, alongside mashed potatoes or cooked rice for a satisfying meal.
