Slow Cooker Ranch House Pork Chops with Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

Well....it's here. Yesterday was the last day of 70+ weather. Today it's forecasted high's in the 50's. 

Hello Fall!!!

Breaking out the slow cooker and am making one of my family's favs....

Ranch House Pork Chops with Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

  1. 6 pork chops, 1/2 inch thick
  2. 1 packet dry Ranch Dressing Seasoning
  3. 10 oz can Cream of Chicken Soup
  4. 4 lbs peeled, cubed potatoes
  5. 5 Tablespoons real butter
  6. 1 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  7. 1- 1 1/2 Cups warm skim milk (any milk will do, I used skim)
  8. 1 Tablespoon salt, or to taste
  9. 1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper, or to taste 

Directions:
  • Place pork chops, Ranch seasoning and soup into a medium sized crock pot over high heat for 4 hours or low heat for 6 hours.
  • Place potatoes into a large pot of cold water. Place onto stove top over high heat and bring to a boil. 
  • Once water is boiling, cook for 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Drain and transfer to the work bowl of a stand or electric mixer. Mix on low until potatoes are mashed then add butter, Parmesan, milk, salt and pepper. Season to taste if needed. For thinner mashed potatoes add more milk, slowly until your desired consistency.
  • Scoop mashed potatoes onto serving plates and top with pork chops and soup gravy from crock pot. I put a little parsley on top to serve.
