Crock Pot Ranch Pork Chops

A very simple, low maintenance recipe that produces amazing results! This has become one of our staples. I have made the recipes 2 ways: just as written with the real mashed potatoes but I have also made it with boxed Hungry Jack potatoes and added garlic and seasoning to the potatoes and I gotta tell ya, not much difference between the two!

4-6 boneless pork chops (I use butterfly)
1 packet dry Ranch dressing seasoning
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 cup milk

Salt and Pepper pork chops. Place pork chops in bottom of Crock Pot.  Mix together Ranch seasoning, soup and milk in a bowl and then pour over porkchops.  Cook in crock pot on low for about 6 hours or on high for 4 hours. 

4 lbs peeled, cubed potatoes
5 tbsp real butter
6 cloves roasted garlic (directions are below)
1- 1 1/2 cups warm skim milk
Salt and pepper to taste

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 bowl or a stand or electric mixer. Mix on low until potatoes are mashed then add butter, garlic, milk, salt and pepper. Season to taste.

Place a large heap of mashed potatoes on plate, top with a pork chop then drizzle some of the gravy from the crockpot on top. 

Directions for roasted garlic
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place bulb of garlic with skins on, wrap lightly in tin foil and bake for 1 hour. Remove from foil and let cool for 15 minutes. Remove garlic from skins, place in a bowl and mash with a fork until completely mashed
