This recipe creates an easy work-day meal. Just pop in the crock pot and allow it to prepare this for you. You could add a dozen small red potatoes and two cups of raw broccoli increasing the water to 10 oz. This will provide an entire meal to serve 4-6. Enhance the flavor of the pork chops by seasoning them with Sazon before browning.

This is a great way to combine your love of pork with your love of mushrooms. The key to this recipe is having a good crock pot - it will make the meat especially tender and really enhance the soup. I always eat this with mashed potatoes, because it is the most delicious thing to add to potatoes!

I sautee some onions and add them and add garlic powder and a pinch of dried thyme and black pepper for more flavor. The gravy was quite thin so I'd omit the water next time.
Chef Roxy July 29, 2013 REVIEW:
I omit the water and just let the steam add a little liquid to the soup as I like a thicker gravy. I serve this with steamed rice and it's total comfort food. I've also used cut up pork loin in the same recipe and serve it over noodles.

This is a great recipe. To add to the flavor, when braising the pork I also added worchester sauce. In the crock pot I added a good couple tablespoons of minced garlic and some more worchester. Amazing!

Made this tonight the family just loved it. will make it again. I used kitchen bouquet to add color (brown) and seasoning on chops. stick of celery. I cooked on high for one hour than slow for 3 hours. thats all, done, and with loads of mashed pototoes.
Kat February 7, 2012 COMMENT: Someone was worried about the length of time...notice the recipe says "low" for 5+ hours. If you need it faster, as I do tonight, just cook it on high for less time. This recipe looks wonderful, and I'm sure pork chops already browned will be all ready to eat in 4 hours on high in my crockpot. If wrong, I'll send another comment!
eck0731 September 1, 2011 COMMENT: Is the one can of soup, 'condensed' or 'ready to serve'?
CDKitchen Staff Reply: I'd go with condensed since it's a crockpot recipe. The ready to serve kind would probably end up too watery.

The only thing I do different is add a can of undrained mushrooms and omit the additional water. Delish!

Family really enjoyed this recipe. Did not change anything. The addition of the carrots is a great idea. Thanks.

I tried cubing pork tenderloin and using that instead of the pork chops. Served it over mashed potatoes. It was so amazingly wonderful.
Guest Foodie July 1, 2008 REVIEW:
I love this recipe because I can have dinner prepped in just a few minutes. One note, this used to work great in my old crock pot on low for 6-8 hours, but with my new one (my favorite old crock pot broke) I have to cook it less time or cook on the warm setting if I want to let it sit all day.

I used 4 boneless pork chops with the above recipe...and only had to cook about 6 hours. It came out delicious. This was my first meal with my new crock pot! Highly recommended and so easy!
normabee May 6, 2007 COMMENT: THIS CROCKPOT RECIPE STARTS OFF "READY IN 5 HOURS" AND ENDS WITH "COOK ON LOW 6 TO 8 HOURS" WASN'T ABLE TO USE DUE TO TIME RESTRAINTS.
CDKitchen Staff Reply: It says Ready In > 5 hours which means GREATER than five hours. The exact cooking times are always in the directions. The other categories of cooking times are < 30 minutes (less than 30 minutes), 30-60 minutes, 1-2 hours, 2-5 hours, and > 5 hours.

I season the chops with some Cajun spices before browing them. Then I use a low sodium soup so it doesn't get too salty. Turns out great every time.
In Italian, orzo means "barley". It's a small, rice shaped pasta typically made from semolina. It is commonly found in soups or salads but it's grown in popularity and uses over the last few years so you often see it used more like rice such as in risotto or pilafs.
