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 it.

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 recipes always taste great.

Another variation includes cream of mushroom soup or cheddar cheese soup.

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.

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.

I like to try and find the easiest way to make a meal and create less fuss for weekday dinner recipes.

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

If you have any leftovers you can keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

How would I adjust this for a pressure cooker?

Hi Marina, I don't have a pressure cooker, but I Googled it and it looks like you would cook it for about 10-15 minutes after it pressurizes. I hope that helps. You might want to check the pressure cooker guide to see if you put it on a certain setting.

I don't have cream of chicken but I do have cream of mushroom. Would that be a good substitute?

BTW this recipe looks amazing. I am thinking of adding carrots to it also
