I came up with it one day after I purchased some pork chops that were marked down at the grocery store. I tossed them in the Crock Pot with a few other items in anticipation of a busy evening. We loved the result! I think your family will, too.

Ingredients

  • 4 thick pork chops or 6-8 thin pork chops (bone-in or boneless both work fine)
  • 2 cups homemade cream of mushroom soup or 1 can (10.5 oz.) condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Several dashes of salt and pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup frozen green beans
  • 1 cup frozen carrots
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder or cornstarch
  • Prepared rice

Instructions

Place the pork chops in the bottom of a lightly greased slow cooker. Pour the cream of mushroom soup and 1 cup of the chicken broth over the top of the pork chops. Sprinkle with the Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and garlic. Top with the green beans, carrots, and onion. Cover and cook on low for approximately 4 hours.

Smothered Pork Chops in the slow cooker

Stir the arrowroot powder (or corn starch) into the remaining chicken broth. Add to the slow cooker and stir it into the meat, veggie, and sauce mixture. Replace the lid and allow the meal to cook for an additional hour or until the sauce is thick and the pork chops are thoroughly cooked. Serve over prepared rice. Yield: 4 servings.

Notes

This dish has comfort written all over it! It is hearty and has a delicious savory flavor. We love that the pork chops turn out so tender that you can easily break them apart with forks.

The ingredients for this dish cost approximately $7.94, which is just $1.98 per serving. When you find a dish that is this affordable, convenient, and delicious, you’d better hang onto the recipe!

Feel free to add or substitute other vegetables in order to accommodate your family’s preferences. I’ve used lima beans instead of green beans and this worked out well. You could try adding potatoes, corn, bell peppers, etc.—whatever your family likes!

  1. I am not a big fan of canned mushroom soup, but homemade is an entirely different story. And I love a good slow cooker meal. Thanks for partying with us on #FridayFrivolity

  2. I am hopeless when it comes to pork chops. Our family has “enjoyed” them burnt, tough and undercooked! I must try this recipe. I notice that the cooking time is relatively short on low, that might be part of my problem. Have a blessed day!

    • Hi Margaret,
      That’s all the time it takes! It’s obviously wise to check them before serving them up to your family, but in my slow cooker they are thoroughly cooked yet tender and juicy after that time.

  3. I’m always so nervous to cook with pork because I always make it so dry. Slow cooker is a great idea! Never thought of it 🙂 Thanks for sharing!!

  4. I love using my slow cooker, especially on days when I know I will be crazy busy at work and may not feel like cooking when I get home! This recipe sounds like something we would LOVE! Thanks for sharing at Tuesdays with a Twist! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  5. Your Magesty says:

    Is there something I can use instead of Cream of Mushroom soup, please? Thank you!

    • Sure! You can make gravy (or use a jar of gravy from the store if you’re short on time). Just use about two cups of it. They are great this way, too!
      You could also try other cream soups (cream of celery, cream of onion, etc.).

      • Ohhh, those are great suggestions of substitutes for Cream of Mushroom! Thank you so much for responding so quickly.

        I’m going to take solo road trip from PA to AL in about a month’s time, and am unsubscribing from all my newsletters, and keeping a list of them to re-subscribe when I return. I plan to be away about 3 weeks and don’t want to return to a avalanche of all my newsletters and devotionals, etc. I love your site and the thoughts you share with me/us. God bless you, Ja

        • Good idea so your inbox doesn’t get too full!
