FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Can I use boneless pork chops?

I like the bone-in pork chops for this recipe. I find that it really gives this dish a lot of flavor but if you prefer boneless you can certainly do that. But I definitely do not recommend a thin cut pork chop. Just be careful when taking them out when they are finished cooking. The meat will be very tender so I like to scoop them out with a spatula.

What can I serve with pork chops?

My absolute favorite side dish with this is mashed potatoes. Rice or egg noodles are also good. I also like to serve it with some steamed vegetables. (like broccoli or carrots) and maybe some Butter Swim Biscuits!

Can I cook this high?

I don’t recommend cooking on high. The meat will not come out as tender. Cooking it low and slow will ensure fall-apart tender pork chops.

Can I use a different cream soup?

You can pretty much us any cream soup your family enjoys. Cream of mushroom, cream of chicken, cream of onion, cream of mushroom and chicken will all work here.

Should I salt and pepper the pork chops?

You could definitely season with pepper but I don’t recommend salt as there is enough salt in the other ingredients.

Can I use fat-free or low sodium options?

Where applicable, you could certainly substitute with those options. I prefer low sodium options here because we’re also using packets of pork gravy and onion soup mix which also have sodium in them.

Do I need to thicken the gravy?

It’s totally optional but I really think the gravy works better when thickened.

Can I use a round crock pot instead of oval?

I find this recipe works better in an oval slow cooker instead of a round one. The chops cook more evenly. 

How do I store leftovers?

Store leftovers in an airtight container and put into the refrigerator. Eat within two days. I don’t recommend freezing leftovers.

    Delicious, as always! I used thick cut bone-in pork chops, cream of chicken soup with mushrooms and fresh sliced mushrooms added about two hours before the end. The thick chops did require a full six hours, but it was worth it — when I asked my husband to taste test, they fell apart on the fork. 🙂 Served it with boursin mashed potatoes and steamed baby carrots with honey, and it was a huge hit. Thank you so much for sharing!

    My family loves this recipe so much that I had to do more than pin it! I had to print it out in case I ever lost it so I and my daughter could never forget how to make such an easy and tasty pork chop recipe.
    Thanks

    Can I use canned pork gravy ? I don’t have any of the dry gravy packets , except for brown gravy.
    Also I don’t have any cornstarch, is that a must or can it go without ?

    1. It could be doubled, but I’ll be honest, I have not tried it so I can’t give you timing. I don’t like to guess unless I’ve tried it myself. Just make sure you are using a large enough slow cooker so these cook evenly. Perhaps someone else has doubled it and can give us an idea about timing 🙂

    I love this recipe. I have cooked it a dozen of times in the slow cooker but wanted to see if anyone has done it in the instant pot and for how long and what temp? Thank you

    I am making this for dinner tonight and we can’t wait to try it. Something different, ya know. Instead of the same ol’ same ol’. The only thing that I will be adding is some fresh ground pepper to the chops and some fresh thyme to the “gravy” mixture since I have an abundance of it in my little terracotta pot.

    I made this for dinner tonight. I used boneless chops and beef broth and it turned out amazing. The problem i was having was deciding if i should serve it with rice, mashed potatoes or stuffing… I will make this again for sure.

  7. Could you do chicken breasts instead of the pork chops? I do not like pork chops unfortunately.

    I made this recipe for the first time tonight and it was absolutely amazing! I am a bad cook and I’m not too proud to admit it so my family was pleasantly surprised when I served this. Awesome recipe and I will definitely make this often. I followed your instructions exactly as you listed. Thank you soo much for being happiness to my families taste buds

        This recipe was absolutely delicious! I use cream of mushroom soup, sliced onions and diced mushrooms and it turned out so good. This has become a family favorite and I love to make this dish. I do a side of mashed potatoes, and another fresh veggie.

    We loved this! So easy to make and it turns out exactly as described. My husband is picky but this had his approval to add it to our list of meals to make.

    We had this for dinner tonight. I used 4 one-half inch thick boneless chops. Cooked them in the crock pot on low for 4-1/2 hours, added the cornstarch and cooked on high for 30 minutes. It turned out beautifully and delicious with perfect gravy. I served with mashed potatoes and green beans. Everyone loved it! Going on my “dinner’s list.”

    I just want to say thank you! I cook for a long term care home and used this recipe to replace one that was not going over well. Both the staff serving and the residents consuming it loved it! I am so happy. Thank you!

  12. Can this recipe be made in the oven? I’ve made this several times and love this recipe but I’m in the middle of moving and can’t find my oval crockpot

    1. I am sure you certainly could but I haven’t tested it so I am always hesitant to try and guess how to do it if I haven’t personally tried it. However, maybe someone on here has tried it and can let us know how it went for them!
