Crock Pot Pork Chops - Secret Recipe Club

I always look forward to receiving my assignment for Secret Recipe Club. Will it be a blogger I know, one I am familiar with or a new one I’ve never visited before? This month’s assignment was Crumbs and Chaos. Crumbs and Chaos is made up of 4 sisters, Becca, Emily, Kate and Megan. I "met" them last month when Becca had my blog for SRC.

In an effort to choose something besides desserts for my SRC assignments, I noticed the Crumbs and Chaos ladies feature Crock Pot recipes. I am always searching for new crock pot recipes to add to my collection. We don’t have pork chops often at my house. Occasionally we will have them grilled in the summer but never during the winter months. Pork chops cooked inside always remind me of the ones my mother made as a kid, fried and dry. They reminded me of shoe leather, not that I’ve ever eaten shoe leather.

When I saw Emily of Crumbs and Chaos' recipe for Crock Pot Pork Chops, with mushroom sauce, how could they be anything but moist and delicious. I substituted flour for the tapioca. The sauce wasn't as thick as I would have liked so I added a little cornstarch and thickened it stove top. Served along side noodles or rice, this makes the perfect weeknight dinner.

Crockpot Pork Chops with Mushroom Sauce
  • 4-6 boneless pork chops
  • 1 can mushroom soup
  • 3/4 cup white wine
  • 1- 4oz. can sliced mushrooms
  • 2 Tablespoons quick cooking tapioca
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 beef bouillon granules or 1 beef bouillon cube
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme, optional
Place pork chops in slow cooker.
Combine remaining ingredients and pour over pork chops.
Cook on low for 8-10 hours.
Serve over rice or noodles.

  2. So glad you enjoyed this dish, Julie! We love putting the crock pot to work for us :)

  3. wow, I don't know how the pork stayed together cooking for that long. When I read the description, I figured it'd be a saucy mushroom pulled-pork open-faced sandwich kinda thing. Either way, delicious!

  4. I'll bet they were tender and delicious cooked that way!

  5. Love recipes for my slow cooker; true comfort food!

  6. These sound really good. I'm with you, I rarely make pork chops that aren't grilled and it's sometimes hard finding a chop recipe for the crock pot but this sounds perfect. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Mmmmm yummy! Love crock pot chops :) especially with gravy!

  8. Such an easy recipe.

  10. Julie, this is another great melt in your mouth recipe. I love setting my crockpot and walking away, so I will be making this very soon! Thanks.

  11. Crockpot recipes are definitely something I'm lacking in and this looks like some serious comfort food!

  12. I have been loving my crockpot this year. This looks like a great way to prepare pork chops -- We always grill them too... maybe it is a Midwest thing :)

  13. Looks like a plate of pure comfort just waiting for someone to dig in! I hope you'll stop by and visit my SRC post for Chewy Oatmeal Raisin and Almond Cookies
