Slow Cooker Pork Chops in Mushroom Gravy

I normally don’t post my recipes until I’ve tried them but this one smells so good I’m confident it’s going to be delicious!  I’ll let you know otherwise.

Serves 3-4


  • 2 TBSP of Oil
  • 4 medium pork chops
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 tin of Baxter’s Cream of Mushroom Soup (295g)
  • ½ tin of Baxter’s French Onion Soup (415g)
  • 1 TBSP of butter
  • 200 grams of button mushrooms sliced


  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan, season the pork chops with salt and pepper and brown on both sides (approx 3 minutes per side).  Transfer to the slow cooker.
  2. Melt the butter in a sauce pan and sauté the mushrooms for a few minutes until they begin to soften.  They still have hours in the slow cooker so you don’t need to cook them fully.  Place on top of the chops in the slow cooker.
  3. Mix the Mushroom and French Onion soup in a jug.  Pour over the mushrooms and pork chops.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

I tend to serve mine with rice and green beans.

Canada’s National Dish

I’ve just booked flights home to Canada in the summer and I’m a bit excited so thought I would teach you something about Canada.  As Canada is such a diverse place the national dish is debatable. Most people tend to associate Maple Syrup with Canada but contrary to popular belief it doesn’t flow through our veins.  However, if you’re from the West coast it may be Salmon and Wild Rice while in Montreal its Poutine.

What is Poutine I hear you ask???  Basically, it’s a heart attack on a plate:  Chips, Gravy and Cheese Curd but boy is it lovely!
