Slow cooker pork chops and gravy are cooked to fork-tender perfection. Smothered with a simple gravy, these slow cooker pork chops are one of my grandma’s best pork chop recipes.

Slow Cooker Pork Chops and Gravy

I am beyond blessed to have two grandmas (Maddie’s great-grandmas) that I still get to spend time with regularly. One of my favorite memories from both are sitting around the dinner table together, enjoying a good meal. Their love of food, cooking and family has played a huge role in what has been passed on to me, and then on to Maddie.

I’m giving to you today and sharing with you a “Grandma” recipe. One I remember eating for the first time at her house. Made with love in her kitchen. It’s a simple recipe, really, but one that we instantly fell in love with and have made countless times since then.

Grandma’s Pork Chops and Gravy. Comfort food, for sure. Just as comforting as our oven baked chicken and gravy.

What is a center cut pork chop?

In this recipe we use boneless center cut pork chops. When  you pick these up at the store, they are generally from the rib section of the loin. These chops have a mild flavor and are very tender since there is a little more fat on them. They are a great all purpose pork chop that are easy to find. They are even great baked in the oven.

To read about every kind of pork chop and what to use them for, see this article.

Can I use bone-in pork chops?

Yes! This recipe works with just about any type of pork chop. Since you are slow cooking the pork, it may fall off the bone a little bit. Whether you choose bone in or boneless, it will be delicious.

Easy Slow Cooker Pork Chops

This is a “quick” slow cooker meal. This sounds slightly like an oxymoron, doesn’t it? Let me explain how to make quick slow cooker pork chops.

  • When choosing fresh pork, choose boneless, center cut pork chops that are about 1″ thick.
  • Make a mixture of ½ cup flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 ½ teaspoons dry mustard, and ½ teaspoon garlic powder.
  • Dredge the pork chops in the 4-ingredient blend and brown them in a hot, oiled skillet. Just 2-3 minutes on each side will be enough to give them a beautiful, golden brown color. Don’t skip this step. It deepens the flavor and makes the chops melt in your mouth. This step takes just under 15 minutes.

**Pro Tip: You can do these steps the night before to make morning prep time even shorter. Just place the browned chops in the slow cooker liner and cover. Refrigerate overnight and pull out to cook in the morning.**

Pork Chop Gravy

After the pork chops are browned, simply place them in a slow cooker, cover them with 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, which makes the best pork chop sauce ever. Thick, rich gravy! Cover the cooker and let them simmer away for about 3 hours on high or 5 hours on low. The temperature of the chops should be 160°F. They’ll be fork tender, easy for people of all ages to eat and love.

What to Serve with Pork Chops

The gravy is perfect over a side of mashed potatoes. Serve with a vegetable for a side dish and dinner rolls.

I’m pretty sure this will become one of your new family favorites.

The gravy that this mixture evokes is pure heaven. The chops are ready in record time and the gravy helps these pork chops to be fall apart tender. This recipe is a go for my regular meal rotation. Absolutely no fuss and delicious!

Would like to try this recipe but would like to know if you add any water to the cream of chicken soup like the can says or use as is. TIA

Ok. I need to start by saying center cut pork chops have no place in my life. My grandma made the toughest, dryest pork chops and ruined me for them. That changed today. Holy cow, Julie. THESE WERE AWESOME! I added paprika and dried parsley to the flour mix to give a little color and fried them in butter instead of olive oil. I put them on low for 5 hours and they stayed together in the pot for pretty presentation, but came apart with a fork. Served with mashed potatoes and green beans. Next time I’m going to do… Read more »

These were some of the best pork chops/gravy ever…that’s according to my husband & granddaughter who are picky eaters! I did add lots of black pepper and some onion powder. Since I only had 4 chops, I used 1-1/2 cans of soup which worked perfect!
Thank you so much for a quick, but delicious recipe! It’s a winner!

If my pork chops are slightly frozen bone in, do I need to cook a little longer if using low setting?

Followed your recipe but placed a compressed handful of stuffing on top of each chop then cooked according to directions. Absolutely delicious!

This recipe sounds delicious. I really want to try it. Would like to know if I can use spicy brown mustard instead of dry mustard. Am hoping to be able to try this tomorrow. Please let me know if this is possible.

I’m using the bone in pork chop and I did what the recipe is called to do. Fry the chop on both sides for 2 to 3 mins. Now question? I fried my chops tonight. And I will put them in the crockpot tomorrow morning. Even if you see a little blood is that okay? Will it still be safe to eat after I add everything to the crockpot and let it cook for a few hours?
