Pork chops are a crowd-pleaser known for their rich flavor and tender texture. Contrary to popular belief, creating a delectable pork chop dish doesn’t require a laundry list of ingredients or complex techniques. The natural flavor-absorbing qualities of pork make it an ideal canvas for simple, yet bold, ingredients.
This 3-ingredient slow cooker recipe embraces the essence of simplicity, turning everyday canned soups and seasoning packets into a flavor infusion that’s both straightforward and irresistibly savory. Here’s how to let these simple components work their magic in your slow cooker.
4 pork chops, ready to cook
1 packet ranch dressing mix (use according to your flavor preference)
1 can of condensed cream of chicken soup (cream of mushroom is a fantastic alternative)
Place your pork chops into the slow cooker, arranging them to fit snugly.
Cover the pork chops with the cream of chicken soup. To ensure a balanced moisture content, fill the empty soup can with water and add it to the mix.
Sprinkle the ranch dressing mix over the top. The quantity is up to your taste—remember that the cooking process will intensify the flavors, so it’s okay to be a bit generous.
Set your slow cooker to ‘Low’ and allow the pork chops to cook undisturbed for about 6 hours, infusing them with the rich flavors of the soup and seasoning.
After 6 hours, the pork chops should be tender to the touch and infused with flavor. Carefully remove them with tongs or a spatula to maintain their integrity.
Serve these mouth-watering pork chops with a side of fluffy mashed potatoes and a crisp green salad for a balanced and satisfying meal. This minimalist recipe promises maximum flavor with minimal effort, proving that sometimes, less truly is more. Enjoy your sumptuously simple culinary creation!
