Creamy Mushroom Sauce Pork–the easiest recipe ever. With only 2 ingredients the prep for this pork dinner is minimal. Plus you make it in the slow cooker or Instant Pot so it’s completely a hands-off recipe.
Creamy Mushroom Sauce Pork (Instant Pot/Slow Cooker)
I call this recipe Ryan Nelson’s favorite dinner. Ryan is my brother-in-law and he LOVES cream of mushroom soup. Specifically Campbell’s brand. He eats it by the spoonful. My husband and I always laugh at him because he loves canned cream of mushroom soup but he doesn’t like mushrooms.
I mentioned in my weekly newsletter that we had a family reunion last week. I was with Ryan and he was telling me about his “favorite dinner” which he proceeds to tell me is some pork (can be pork chops, pork roast, pork country style ribs) with some salt and pepper and then cream of mushroom soup on top. He cooks it in the slow cooker for about 6-8 hours. I laughed that his favorite dinner could be something so easy to make. I bet it makes his wife happy when he requests his favorite dinner.
If you’re like Ryan and are a huge fan of cream of mushroom soup then you should try his “recipe.” Here’s a chart to help you know how to cook each cut of pork.
|Cut of meat (pork)||Slow Cooker||Instant Pot|
|Country style ribs||6-8 hours on low||20 minutes (high pressure/natural release)|
|Loin/sirloin||6 hours on low||quarter the roast, 15 minutes (high pressure/natural release)|
|Butt/shoulder/picnic||8-12 hours on low||quarter the roast, 60 minutes (high pressure/natural release)|
|Chops (thin cut)||2-4 hours on low||1 minute with full natural pressure release|
|Chops (thick cut or bone in)||3-5 hours on low||2 minutes with full natural pressure release|

What Appliance Did You Use?
To make slow cooker Creamy Mushroom Sauce Pork I used my 6 quart oval Kitchenaid slow cooker.* I love this slow cooker (you can see me talking about it in a video here). It cooks low and evenly. I love the medium heat choice because most slow cookers that I’ve seen only have the option of cooking on low or high. If you’re going to buy just one slow cooker, this is the one that I recommend.
To make Instant Pot Creamy Mushroom Sauce Pork I used my 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1*. I love this Instant Pot because it has the yogurt making function which I use almost weekly. It has two pressure settings (high and low), and there are also little slots in the handles so that you can rest the lid there instead of putting it down on your counter-top.Print

- 2 lbs pork (country style ribs, pork chops, pork loin, pork shoulder)

- Salt and pepper
- Optional: cornstarch
- If using the Instant Pot, pour 3/4 cup of water (or chicken broth) into the pot. Place pork in the pot and lightly salt and pepper it. Dump cream of mushroom soup on top of the pork. If using the slow cooker, no water is necessary.
- Cover and secure the lid. Use cooking times as noted in the chart below.
- To thicken the sauce, make a cornstarch slurry by combining 1-2 Tbsp of cornstarch with 1-2 Tbsp of cold water and stirring until smooth. Stir the slurry into the Instant Pot or slow cooker and cook on saute mode or high until the sauce has thickened.
- Serve pork as is or shred up and serve with the sauce.

How long for Frozenish country style ribs?
I would do 22 minutes
I made this last nite & it was great! Any chance I could make pot in pot noodles with it?
Sure you could do that. Put water and pasta in a pan on a tall trivet over the top of the pork. Should be great.
How long for frozen western style ribs using Instant Pot?
I’m not familiar with western style ribs…is that the same thing as country style ribs?
Carrie Anne says
what do you think about cooking ground pork sausage? How would you go about it?
You could just use saute setting and brown it then stir in the soup. No need to even bring to pressure.
Alissa Joy Lee says
Do you know how much sodium is in this recipe? Or how to make it low sodium?
You could buy the healthy request low sodium version of the cream of soup! That would help!

I’m using an IP, is this recipe based on if this meat is thawed or does it matter if it’s frozen or not?
It’s based on thawed meat. What cut were you going to use? Frozen would probably be fine but you’ll need to increase cooking time.
Can’t wait to try this. I’m guessing a pork tenderloin would be similar cooking times to pork chops and not the pork loin?
Yes pork tenderloin is probably around 6 minutes. Check my other tenderloin directions: https://www.365daysofcrockpot.com/instant-pot-garlic-pork-tenderloin-and-mashed-potatoes/

Wow! Thank you. This recipe looks fantastic, too!
Can’t beat a 2 ingredient recipe. Pork chops and cream of mushroom soup with a splash of chicken broth. Didn’t need to thicken the sauce at all. This was a hit tonight. Definitely a do-over and over 🙂
Awesome! I love this easy recipe too!
Chris Wright says
The cooking-time chart.
For a pork loin, would be 15 min per pound, yes?
Instant pot 8 quart 6-in-1.
Yes that’s right. I would do a natural release too with it!
Hey! We just tried this recipe out. We cooked our pork chops for 2 minutes in the instant pot and the top of the pork was still raw. Any tips on this? Thank you!
Did you do a natural pressure release or a quick release?
Diana Barajas says
Hi, writing from Mexico, should I put just the mushroom soup without any water or milk??? I am using slow cooker, I know you said no water need, but the instructions on the soup say add water or milk
yeah no water or milk
What about a bone in loin
About the same time as the loin. Maybe add 2 minutes.
How long for boneless country ribs?
What if use country rib’s, mushrooms, mushroom soup, can potatoes, fresh shap green beans, onions how long
I can’t say for sure but go with the times listed above for country ribs.
How long to cook the potatoes in the IP if not cooking ribs or loin? I have boneless 2.5″ loin chops and would enjoy cooking the potatoes at the same time. Thanks!
Are you trying to make baked potatoes? Baked potatoes would take a lot longer than the chops. However if you cup of the potatoes into cubes that would probably work.

My mother always made porkchops with the cream of mushroom soup, but she also added yellow mustard underneath the cream of mushroom soup, cooked in the oven. It really added an extra zing! I wonder, have you ever heard of this version?
I’m new to the electric pressure cooker and I find your recipes and explainations very very helpful! Thank you!!
Yum! I will definitely have to try that. I really like mustard.
Sounds delicious but I’m wondering if I can make potatoes at the same time?
I would love some baked!
Maybe I’m spoiled and used to cooking everything in one shot. Lol
Wrap them up in foil and throw them in with the pork in the Instant Pot. If you choose the country style ribs or pork loin, the potatoes should cook at the same rate.

Your comment that your brother-in law likes mushroom soup but not mushrooms sounds like me. I like raw apples but not cooked, not applesauce, apple juice — nothing cooked. By the way, I love your recipes.
Haha!! It’s funny how we are isn’t it?
