Ranch Slow Cooker Pork Chops with Gravy (No Canned Soups)


Ranch Slow Cooker Pork Chops with Gravy

I love my slow cooker but I don’t like that many recipes call for canned soups. I don’t like the flavors and they are so icky to me. So, I have a recipe I use instead of any canned soups it is so simple even my daughter, who helped make dinner last night, said, “If I can do this anyone can do it.”

Now the picture above looks weird but the taste and the smell that went through our house was amazing! All day long I could not wait until dinner time to dig in.

Verdict:

Though I did end up using a Ranch Dressing packet in the end this meal could easily be made using ranch dressing spices and the Canned Soup Substitute. We LOVED this dish. Both kids said it reminded them a bit of Swedish Meatballs.

I served this with green beans as a side.
