DISCLAIMER: This post is sponsored by the Wisconsin Pork Producers Association. As always, the opinions are honest and are all my own. 

We absolutely loved this pork chop meal here at the house, and there are several things I love about this meal.

It’s the perfect family meal. It gives us an opportunity to have a home-cooked meal at the table as a family. We get to chat with the kids and know that they are eating a nutritious supper.

It is super easy to make and only takes about five minutes to get the ingredients into the Crock Pot and cooking, which is nice when we all stay so busy.

The pork cooks up so tender and falls apart the minute your fork touches it. The red potatoes are soft and the ranch seasoning adds so much flavor to the dish.

This is a versatile recipe, as well. You can also use pork tenderloin or pork shoulder instead of pork chops.

And pork is perfect for barbecues, family gatherings, potlucks at church, holiday meals, and gatherings of any size because it’s so easy to make and leaves everyone full and satisfied.

Pork Chops And Potatoes

We grew up spending a lot of time on my grandparent’s farm in west Tennessee and eating quite a bit of pork.

My grandfather had a few hogs on his farm, so pork was something that we ate a lot of.

At the time, I just ate and ran. I had to get outside to play. I didn’t think about the nutrition that went into the food my grandparents served. But, now that I have my own family, that is very important to me.

Pork is much leaner than a lot of meats, so you don’t have to be worried about eating too much fat.

Pork.org said, “The popular pork tenderloin is considered ‘extra lean’ and has the same amount of fat as skinless chicken breast.”

Eating pork is also a great way to get plenty of protein and potassium.

According to Pork.org, “Pork, by definition, is an ‘excellent’ source of nutrients important in supporting our health, including vitamin B-6, thiamin, phosphorus, niacin and selenium, and protein and a ‘good’ source of zinc, riboflavin and potassium.”

So adding pork to our diet is always a good thing.

Pork Is Raised By Farmers In America

One of the great things about eating pork is that it is raised in Wisconsin and other states in this country, so you’re helping local farmers.

The farmers are raising their hogs with care and when you buy it from the grocery store or a local meat market you are supporting those American farmers and their families.

Start by rinsing off and slicing the small red potatoes into quarters.

Next, grab another bowl and add two cans of cream of chicken soup and minced onion.

I use dried minced onion for this recipe. It adds a lot of flavor and I don’t have to spend any time dicing onions.

You can use fresh onions if you’d like to. If you use fresh onions, I would add about 1/4 cup, in lieu of the dried onions.

When the pork chops and potatoes recipe finishes cooking, remove the lid and shred the pork chops. Give everything a good stir.

That’s it! It’s ready to eat and you didn’t have to do much work for one amazing dinner.

The pork comes out so tender and flavorful after cooking for hours in the ranch seasoning and soups.

When pork chops are cooked in the Crock Pot for seven hours, they will reach the appropriate temperature.

When cooking pork chops in the oven or on the grill, they need to get to an internal temperature of 145-degrees.

I love to hear that! If refrigerated, I would say two or three days. But, only get out and reheat what you will eat. Don't reheat the food more than once. Hope that helps!
