I went through several variations before creating the pork chops my family considers perfect! I wanted something rich, delicious and tasty that was still relatively healthy. This is a delicious Sunday dinner idea because you can pop it in the slow cooker in the morning and let it cook while you are at church! I suggest serving it with salad or grilled asparagus. —Kristin Stone, Little Elm, Texa

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 boneless pork loin chops (6 to 8 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 pound medium fresh mushrooms, quartered
  • 1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Hot cooked egg noodles
  • Additional basil


  1. In a shallow bowl, mix flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add pork chops, 1 at a time, and toss to coat; shake off excess.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown pork chops in batches. Transfer meat and drippings to a 4-qt. slow cooker.
  3. In same skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms; cook and stir until tender, 6-8 minutes. Add wine, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Pour mushroom mixture over pork chops; sprinkle with basil.
  4. Cook, covered, on low until meat is tender, 3-4 hours. Whisk together soup, buttermilk and remaining salt; pour over pork chops. Cook, covered, 30 minutes longer. Stir before serving. Serve with noodles; sprinkle with additional basil.
To substitute for each cup of buttermilk, use 1 Tbsp. white vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to measure 1 cup. Stir, then let stand 5 min. Or, use 1 cup plain yogurt or 1-3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar plus 1 cup milk.
