- Baked Cream of Mushroom Pork Chops Recipe
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 25 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!
Baked Pork Chops Ingredients
- pork chops
- salt and pepper
- salted butter
- white onion
- minced garlic
- condensed cream of mushroom soup
How to Make Baked Cream of Mushroom Pork Chops 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
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.

Heather Saly says
Kids love this. So quick and easy…not to mention yummy. This is a go to for me after a busy day at work.
Kayda Lowrie says
I add some dry onion soup mix to give it more flavor
Lianna Bos says
Absolutely perfect. I added a little bit of Worcestershire as well.
Linda A. says
This is how I used to cook pork chops and some chicken recipes when I was a young bride. You always knew it would be great. Plus, it’s hard to over-cook pork because it’s always tender!
Good stuff Lady. I seasoned my chops before pan frying then basted with mustard before pouring the soup over them just because I love mustard. 😃
Delaynah Bly says
That sounds delicious with mustard! I will be trying that myself
Ashley C says
easy peasy lemon squeezy! I loved how easy this was but I found I had to add another tbsp of butter after the onions were done cooking for the pork. Not sure but this may be because i have a nicely nonstick pan or because i was reheating frozen caramelized onions so they might have soaked up the butter faster! Also, pork was done pretty close to 20 minutes! I gave them time to sit after cooking mostly because the carrots weren’t steamed yet but it all came together great! My husband and 5 year old loved equally, and that’s a feat! Thanks for sharing!
My husband asks for this constantly. Simple and delicious.
Made this tonight and it was great! I hate to be that person who *just changed a few things* but I did make some alterations:
Sauteed my onion with LOTS of garlic. Set aside. Then I sauteed mushrooms with a bit more garlic. Set aside. Then I browned the pork chops. I seasoned those with seasoning salt, pepper, and rosemary. Laid those into a glass baking sheet. Finally I put chopped broccoli into the pan and added some water to steam with all the remaining juices. Also sprinkled some seasoning salt on the broccoli.
At each step (except broccoli) always adding more butter!
For the soup mixture – I had 9 porkchops so I did two cans of soup and 1 can of milk.
At 350 it took 20 minutes even. My chops were probably 1/2 in thick.
I served over a Sidekicks Garlic and Parmesan rice I had in the pantry. Everything was delicious!
I don’t understand the 5 rating. I made this exactly according to directions. It was totally tasteless.
Then add seasonings dumbars
Jennifer cruz says
lol I did it Hispanic style I put cilantro and some oregano pinch of Himalayan sea salt I ran out of pepper so skipped that did the whole butter thing it smells great so far…. its.still cooking right now.
Jen cruz says
oh garlic and sofrito as well just a bit less than what I’m normally used to put it not to kill the style. but let’s see.
Try adding about a tsp. of creamy peanut butter to the soup/milk mixture….adds that little bit of unexpected flavor
