*This recipe uses a seasoning blend (My Favorite Roast Seasoning Blend) found in the eCookbook, Mix it / Store it / Make it  ~ Entrees and Seasonings.  Click here to purchase and make the seasoning for your pantry! 

6 pork chops (thick cut)
4 tablespoons My Favorite Roast Seasoning Blend
10.7 oz can sliced mushrooms
10.75 oz can cream of mushroom soup


    1. Place the pork chops into a 6 quart slow cooker.
    2. In a small bowl, combine the seasoning with mushroom soup and sliced mushrooms.  Fill the empty soup can half way with water and add it to the mixture in the bowl. Stir to blend and pour over the pork chops.
    3. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours.  Pork chops are ready when fork tender.  Remove them from the slow cooker and place on a platter.  Serve with the gravy that is still in the slow cooker pot.  (NOTE: If the chops cook too long they will begin to fall apart. This is fine, but you will not be able to serve whole.  Instead, you can shred and serve over mashed potatoes or rice.)  
    Serves 6

    BAKING OPTION: Place pork chops in a 9x13 baking dish and follow directions in step 2 accordingly. Cover and cook on 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes or until meat is done, time depending on thickness of chops.

    Go ahead and make extra pork chops so you are sure to have some left for another meal.  Take the remaining chops and shred shred them.  Put this in a storage container with enough of the gravy to cover it.  Another night, reheat this mixture and serve it over any of the following options:  rice, egg noodles, or baked potatoes or serve on hamburger buns..  

    Fill the Freezer:Dinner's In the Bag!
    Fill a gallon sized freezer bag (or 2!) with the list of ingredients, remove extra air from the bag, seal and squish to combine.  Label the bag with the recipe name and date. Lay flat in freezer and store for another day. To prepare, thaw enough to remove from the bag and follow directions for slow cooker or baking.  Fill as many bags as you like!

    Get the Kids Cooking:
    Making frozen meals in a bag is a great time to get the kids involved.  They can fill bags, squish bags or even label bags if old enough.  Line up the supplies and let them help!
