💭How to Store
Any leftover pork chops can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. They’re best reheated in the oven or stovetop with an additional splash or two of water as needed.
Unfortunately, these crock pot pork chops with gravy are not very freezer-friendly. When frozen for any significant amount of time, the creamy gravy will become grainy or might separate. Reheated frozen pork chops might still taste good, but the texture will be off.
- Not a fan of creamy sauces? Make these pork chops with brown gravy, pesto garlic sauce, or Carolina mustard BBQ sauce.
- Don’t have a slow cooker? You can make these crock pot pork chops with mushroom soup in a 425°F oven instead. Simply brown the pork in an oven-safe skillet, add the sauce on top, cover, and roast for 15-20 minutes.
- Don’t love pork? You can use this sauce recipe and cooking method to make almost any meat! Try making cream of mushroom chicken, sausage, or pot roast.

How can you tell if crock pot pork chops are done?
The texture should be similar to chicken breast—tender but firm. After about 2 hours of cooking, the pork should have an internal temperature of 145°F. Between 3-6 hours of cooking time, they will be more tender and can be cut with a fork.
Do pork chops get tough in the crock pot?
If you skimp on the liquid, the pork chops can get a little tough and chewy in the slow cooker. However, if you add plenty of creamy sauce, these pork chops will turn out juicy and tender every time.
Should I cook pork high or low in a crock pot?
You can use either setting to make these fall-apart slow cooker pork chops. Cook the pork low and slow for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. Either way, this dish will be creamy and flavorful.
Can I make this recipe Gluten-free?
Absolutely! Simply swap out the regular cream of mushroom and cream of celery soups for gluten-free versions. You can often find these soups canned at the grocery store or make your own!
What’s the difference between a slow cooker and a crock pot?
