A Family Favorite!
It has been rainy and cold this summer here in Edmonton, so I am making more comfort food in the oven than usual! This is a recipe that’s almost as old as time and most households will have their own special variation, but of course, I like mine the best! Baked pork chops with cream of mushroom soup is definitely on my list of comfort foods and it’s really not difficult to make. This recipe ticks all the boxes whether you want a sit-down family meal or a simple dinner for one. Try making these with my salty, crispy baked potatoes for an easy meal!
How Long Should you Bake Pork Chops?
This recipe should be baked at 350 degrees (in a preheated oven at the same temp) for 45 minutes. So it does take a little while to make, but you don’t need to hover over it once it’s baking so it’s very easy to cook!

How to Make Baked Pork Chops with Cream of Mushroom Soup Perfectly
- Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and use salt and pepper to season each side of the pork chops.
- Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat and then add the butter and onions.
- Make sure that you fry the onions until they’re tender, add in the garlic, and keep frying for another minute.
- Once the onions are sorted, leave them aside and start to saute the pork chops in the butter. You just need to do this for 3-4 minutes each side until they’re nicely browned.
- Combine the milk and soup until you have a smooth mixture, and pour it over the pork chops.
- Bake at 350 degrees around 25 minutes or until the pork reaches a minimum of 145 °F in the middle.
What to Serve with Baked Pork Chops with Cream of Mushroom Soup
I think this dish oozes comfort when it’s served with a simple combo of potatoes and vegetables. I like to cook up some of my Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes and Instant Pot Corn on the Cob, which takes no time at all but tastes SO GOOD when it’s all put together.
How to Defrost Pork Chops
The most efficient methods of defrosting your pork chops are with cold water or by microwaving them., but the very SAFEST way is defrosting them in the refrigerator. However, that takes overnight and planning, something we don’t always have! Try these two methods when you are pressed for time.
Cold Water Defrosting
- To defrost pork chops using cold water, remove them from the freezer and place them in a tightly sealed container or plastic bag (make sure it’s leak-proof).
- Place the (sealed) pork chops in a large bowl of cold water until they’re completely submerged.
- For weights up to 1lb, you’ll need to soak them for an hour, changing the water every 30 minutes. But you’ll definitely need another hour or two for 3 – 4 lbs of pork chops.
- Microwaving your pork chops is easy. Just unwrap them, place them in the microwave, and defrost the pork chops using the “defrost” or “thaw” button for 30 seconds.
- Turn them over and thaw them for 30 seconds on the other side. Continue with this process until the pork chops have completely thawed.
