Do you have those meals that show up in the rotation way too many times and much more often than most other “frequent fliers”? The ones where you almost feel like you should feel bad for constantly making it but you just don’t because it’s so delicious and easy, and everyone in your family loves it? Yeah. This is that dish for us.

But seriously, this shows up in our meal rotation so often! And when I make it, A happily eats it all, along with second helpings, all the while taking a break just long enough to say, “I yike it!” (which is Alice for I like it). And fun fact: I actually made and ate this meal the night I went into labor with Tess.

This is probably a great time to transition into how easy it is to make. I mean, if me being able to make this for my family when I was a few days short of my due date, totally uncomfortable and miserable doesn’t convince you, the fact that there are only three ingredients probably will.

No joke, the extent of your work consists of you placing a few items into a slow cooker and turning it on. I mean if you want to get fancy, you can add a slurry to the juices just before you serve it and make a gravy (and I strongly encourage you to do this because it makes an absolutely killer gravy!). But the bttom line is this: you are doing minimal work for maximum flavor.

I seriously cannot say enough great things about this quick, easy dinner. That’s the beauty of the slow cooker. You set it and forget it. This is perfect for a busy weeknight. It’s meant to cook for a pretty long time. So it’s not like one of those slow cooker recipes that gets all dried out if you leave it in there for too long. I usually start it around 8am and stop the cooking process around 6pm.

The flavor is savory and delicious. As I mentioned earlier the gravy is pretty incredible, so take the optional extra step and make the gravy (I love to serve it over mashed potatoes!). Like all the best slow cooker meals, the meat is fall-apart tender. We don’t even use a knife for this meal, it shreds up beautifully with a fork.

Save Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 pork chops (I use boneless, but this works great with bone-in as well- they can be frozen or thawed)
  • 1 can of low sodium chicken broth (beef works really well too, it's just a richer gravy)
  • 1 packet of onion soup seasoning
  • A couple Tbsp. of flour and water to make a slurry (optional but highly recommended)

Instructions

  1. Place the pork chops into your slow cooker.
  2. Top with the seasoning and broth.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
  4. Option for gravy- remove the meat and place in a warm over so they stay hot
  5. Drain the juices in to a pan using a sieve to strain. Simmer over medium heat.
  6. Mix a the flour and water to create a slurry and add to the simmering juices, whisking until it's thickened.
  7. Enjoy!
Cuisine: Weeknight, Slow Cooker | Recipe Type: Main, Dinner

Notes

You can use frozen or thawed pork chops. I encourage you to use low sodium broth as the onion soup mix has a ton of sodium.

    Made this today for my fiancé. Was a little worried about the 8-10 hours cook time, but the chops were fall-off-the-bone. So good!! Excellent gravy, too! Thanks for the suggestion.

      I’m so glad you loved it! The first time I cooked it that long was an accident- I we were all running late after a busy day at work. I was so nervous that dinner was ruined but once I tasted it, I started cooking it that long every time because it was even more tender! Thank you for sharing your feedback!

    This will probably be a silly question, but where did you find the onion soup seasoing? I’m hoping to try this tomorrow. It looks delicious!

      Not a silly question at all- they have these dried soup mixes in the section of my grocery store where the canned soups and stocks live. I hope you love it!
