Pioneer Woman Slow Cooker Pork Chops

Sharing is caring!

Pioneer Woman Slow Cooker Pork Chops – tender boneless pork chops that have slow-cooked to perfection. Serve on a bed of mashed potatoes for the best comfort food meal you could make.

My husband is a big fan of pork chops. Anytime I can find a meal that makes him feel like a king, I do my best to try to make it for him.

When I saw Ree Drummond make her Slow Cooker Pork Chops on Food Network, I knew I wanted to make this for him. This is an easy recipe that features boneless chops that anyone can make. It's the perfect Sunday Supper meal.

I have made slow cooker pork chops with gravy in the past, but the difference between mine and Pioneer Woman's version is that she sears hers before putting them in the slow cooker.

My version skips this step. Both were good, but I do believe Ree's original recipe wins out!

How to Make The Best Crock Pot Pork Chops

Anyone who knows me at all knows that I love the Pioneer Woman. I have been to Pawhuska and have eaten at all of her restaurants, including P-Town Pizza. I have shopped the Mercantile and bought all kinds of Pioneer Woman Bakeware.

One of the most popular recipes of hers that I have made is the Pioneer Woman Lemon Bars and Pioneer Woman Restaurant Style Salsa. To say I love her is an understatement!

OK — let's make these pork chops with simple ingredients!

In a shallow pan, mix the flour, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and thyme leaves. Dredge the pork chops in the flour mixture. Shake to remove the excess flour and then set them aside. If you want, you can add some garlic powder to this mixture for added flavor.

In a large skillet or a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, add the butter and the olive oil. Once the butter has melted, add the pork chops a few at a time (don't overcrowd the pan) and cook for about 3 minutes per side until golden brown.

Set the tender pork chops on a plate. If you don't have the boneless kind, you can use bone-in pork chops for this recipe.

Slow Cooker Time

Now, add the onions to the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat. If you are not a fan of fresh onions, just add onion powder to the broth mixture in the slow cooker.

Add the cream of mushroom soup (you can also use cream of chicken soup if you prefer), chicken broth, and Worcestershire sauce to a 6-quart or 8-quart slow cooker. Whisk it all together to combine. You could even add a little brown sugar and black pepper here to pump up the flavor a bit.

Add the onions, thyme sprigs, and pork chops into the broth.

Cover and cook on high heat for one hour. Then, turn the slow cooker down on low and cook for an additional two hours. The succulent pork chops should be tender and delicious. This is the best way to make tender chops that are full of delicious flavor.

The gravy will be thick. No need to thicken it or anything. Serve over a bed of homemade mashed potatoes. You could also serve this over fresh egg noodles.

Storing the Chops

Once the pork chops have cooled to room temperature, store them in an airtight container and place them in the fridge.
