Ingredients For The Most Tender Pork Chops Ever – With Gravy!
- Boneless Pork Chops – It’s best to use the regular, thick-cut boneless pork chops for this crockpot recipe. Because of the longer cook time, the thin cut boneless pork chops will probably overcook (not be as tender) and not need as long of cook time.
- Cream of Mushroom Soup – This recipe calls for 2 cans of condensed cream of mushroom soup. Any condensed creamed soup will work if you prefer a different one – cream of celery, cream of onion, cream of chicken, or the cream of chicken with herbs, or cream of mushroom with roasted garlic. Lots of options.
- Chicken Broth – The long crockpot cook time tends to mute flavors overtime, so I have used regular salted chicken broth as well as reduced-sodium, and had good results with both. If you want to control the salt more at the end, of prefer less salt, substitute water for the chicken broth.
- Lipton Onion Soup Mix – One packet is all you will need from the box of onion soup mix. Typically, one box comes with two individual packets inside. Use only one. There are other varieties of this soup mix as well that can be used – like onion mushroom soup mix or beefy onion.
- Packet of Pork Gravy Mix – This is the packet of dry pork gravy mix, which can easily be found by the other packets of dried seasoning mixes at the grocery store.
How to Make Crockpot Smothered Pork Chops with Gravy
- Place the pork chops inside the insert of the crockpot.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the cream of mushroom soup, onion soup mix, pork gravy mix, and chicken broth. Pour it over the pork chops.
- Place the cover on the crockpot and cook on LOW heat for 7-8 hours or on HIGH heat for 4-5 hours. I recommend cooking on low heat for the most tender pork. Low & slow is always the way to go when making meat in the crockpot.
Serving Suggestions For Pork Chops with Gravy
My family thinks these are best served over some mashed potatoes. We love these Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes.
You can also serve the pork chops over cooked egg noodles, rice, quinoa, or cauliflower rice. Serve it over something that will be good at soaking up all that creamy thick gravy sauce! You can also enjoy the smothered pork chops as is.
Can I Use Bone-In Pork Chops For Smothered Pork Chops In The Crockpot?
Yes, if you prefer the flavor of bone-in pork chops, you can use those in place of the boneless pork chops. Sometimes the bone-in can be lager in size, so just make sure that they fit in the crockpot and get ‘smothered’ by the gravy sauce you add into the crockpot.
Will It Be Salty Since You’re Using Onion Soup Mix and Pork Gravy Mix?
I wouldn’t classify this as salty, it is flavorful creamy comfort-food, but if you want to control the salt levels in your recipe then there are a few things you can do. Use water instead of chicken broth, use half the pork gravy mix packet OR half the onion soup mix (don’t use half of both). Normally just using water instead of chicken broth will be enough if you want less sodium or want to be able to control the salt amounts at the end.
Keep in mind that although the ingredient list may seem ‘salty’, but due to the crockpot cook time, the crockpot does tend to mute the flavors over time so having more flavor or more ‘salt’ usually has no salty effect in the final taste of the dish. I am sure they also reduced-sodium version of the pork gravy mix and onion soup mix. So look for those if wanted.
- Smothered Pork Chops : The point of this recipe is that the pork chops gets ‘smothered’ or completely covered by the gravy mix inside the crockpot during the cook time. This is what yields that ultra tender, fall-apart pork.
- Boneless Pork Chops : They sell these as thick-cut and thin-cut pork chops. If using thin-cut, watch the cook time because they might not need as long as thick-cut. Vice verse, if the pork chops are really thick than they may need the full cook time or longer. The pork is fall-part tender when you can basically touch a fork to it and easily pull the meat apart.
- Leftovers : Leftovers will last for up to 4-5 days when stored inside an airtight container in the fridge.

- Place the lid on crockpot and cook on LOW heat for 6-7 hours or until fall apart tender.* Low and slow is the way to go when cooking meat in the crockpot. I recommend only cooking on low, but if you need to, cook on high for 4-5 hours. * The pork is fall apart tender when you can touch it with a fork and it easily falls apart. I just cook it for the full 7 hours and it's always perfect.
