Ranch Crock Pot Pork Chops - Freezer to Crock Pot

Finding new ways to cook pork chops can be challenging.  A friend told me about this, and I just had to try it.  Ranch Crock Pot Pork Chops are a great way to cook pork tenderloins in the crock pot and have a savory gravy to serve over potatoes, rice, or on toast.  

When I was told about this, I had one of those forehead-slapping moments that was like, "Really?  Three ingredients?  Why didn't I think of that!"  The ingredients were so obvious.  I don't know why I hadn't put them together before.  Plus, just about anything with ranch is awesome. 

Without further adieu, here they are:  

4-6 thick cut pork tenderloins or chops (I prefer tenderloins)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 package powdered ranch dressing mix

Put the powdered ranch dressing mix in a gallon zippered bag.  Put the chops in the bag, and shake to coat the chops with the dressing mix.  Add the can of chicken soup and enough water to "wash out" the can.  Remove air from bag, seal, and then massage to distribute the ingredients.  When ready to use, remove frozen block from bag and place in crock pot.  Cook approximately 6-8 hours on low or 4-6 on high.  You might need to remove the chops and whisk the gravy with a wire whisk in case lumps have formed.  Serve over mashed potatoes, rice, or toast.  

If cooking immediately, just place chops in crock pot along with cream of chicken soup, and sprinkle dressing mix over the top.  Stir until blended then cook for 6-8 hours on low.  

The gravy that this makes is excellent, so if you want extra gravy, you might consider doubling up on the cream of chicken soup and ranch dressing mix.  Enjoy!
