Directions

1. To prepare your crockpot pork chops recipe: Arrange diced potatoes in the bottom of your slow cooker and sprinkle with cracked pepper.

2. Heat oil or butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for about a minute, until fragrant. Add the heavy cream, cream cheese and chicken broth. Bring to a gentle simmer, then set heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes. The sauce should thicken enough to coat the back of a spoon. Lower the heat and whisk in the Parmesan cheese, little by little until smooth. Add Italian seasoning and adjust seasoning for the cream sauce if needed. You might want to add more liquid if you feel the cream sauce is too thick.

3. Meanwhile, season the pork chops with salt, then quickly sear the pork chops in a hot skillet with a tablespoon oil on both sides, until brown on the edges. Arrange the pork chops on top of the potatoes in the slow cooker.

4. In the same skillet, sauté the sliced mushrooms with onion, scraping the brown bits from the pork chops. Add a little oil if needed. Add the mushrooms and onion on top of the pork chops and potatoes in the slow cooker.

5. When the cream sauce is ready, pour evenly over the pork chops, mushrooms, and potatoes in the CrockPot. Try to get as much sauce as possible on top of the pork chops and less on the bottom.

6. Cook your crockpot pork chops for 3-4 hours on HIGH or 6-8 hours on LOW. Serve your CrockPot pork chops and potatoes immediately, garnished with red chili pepper flakes, chopped parsley, and grated parmesan if you like. Enjoy!

Tips for the slow cooker pork chops

This slow cooker pork chop recipe calls for few ingredients that combine for a truly delicious result. We always have everything like chicken broth, garlic, heavy cream and cream cheese on hand. So, this is really a nice “pantry staple” recipe. Here are a few tips for best results.

  • Make sure to season the pork chops well before searing in the skillet.
  • If you like juicier pork chops, opt for bone-in pork chops. They also tend to render more fat.
  • Thickening the cream sauce is optional, but do this if you feel it is too liquid: After your pork chops and potatoes are finished, you can simply remove them from the slow cooker very carefully. Then, stir together two tablespoons of cornstarch with two tablespoons of water and add it right to the sauce. Turn the crockpot back on high and you should have a nice thick creamy sauce in just about 5-10 minutes. Conversely, if your sauce is too thick at the end, add a little chicken stock or water and mix while reheating.
  • Feel free to add other veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower or squash.
  • If you’re short on time, skip heating the sauce in the saucepan. Just combine everything and pour over the pork chops, mushrooms and potatoes.

How to make the slow cooker pork chops

The key to creating tender, juicy, and delicious slow cooker pork chops is all in the layering. Starting from the bottom with potatoes that will soak a maximum of juices and flavors, then pork chops sandwiched between the layers of potatoes and moist mushrooms, then smothered with the garlic cream sauce that will gather flavors from the mushrooms and meat before dripping to the bottom of the crockpot. A variant consists of cooking the pork chops on HIGH for 2 hours and then on LOW for an additional 2 hours.
