Jason's Ranch Mushroom Pork (Crock Pot)

Jason's Ranch Mushroom Pork (Crock Pot)


3 lbs of pork (I used country style ribs, boneless chops and another single packed chop I have, any pork will do but for this one I wouldn't advise pork steaks just because of the grease)

1 packet of dry ranch dressing mix
1 can golden mushroom soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup
2 large onions sliced
16 ounces of white fresh mushrooms sliced.


This one is simple, simple, simple, simple, simple... well you get the point

Using a whisk mix the three soups and the "dry" ranch dressing mix in a bowl.

Put half of the onions and mushrooms in the bottom of the crock pot. 

Put half of your pork in on top of that and pour half of the soup mix combo on top of that, then put the rest of the pork in, top with more shrooms and onions and the rest of the soup mix. 

Cook on low for 7-9 hours.

Serve this over mashed taters! yes I said taters not potatoes! and then throw some french onion chips on top of it! Mom's Green beans and dad's fantastic buttermilk biscuits with lots of butter on them.

Ok here's the recipe' for mom's green beans, it's simple as well, 2 cans Krogers brand "Extra green, green beans" Add 1/2tsp. sugar, 1 Tbsp. of olive and cook on high till they start to sizzle and then toss till they're good and caramelized. 

Dad's biscuits. Ok this one is hard to explain, just look at the pictures but I'll get you close. Put 2 Tbsps. of oil, whatever you prefer, I normally use vegetable for these, but used olive this last time, anyways put the oil in a "Cast Iron Skillet" that has been "Seasoned". If it's new and not seasoned then put it in the oven with 2 Tbsp.s of oil on 500 degrees for 30 minutes. Let it cool for at least 2 hours then wipe it out with a paper towel and "NEVER" wash it again! For the best results use Dairymaid or another good brand of buttermilk. You'll want to put 3 2/3 cups of "Martha White Self Rising Flour" , I can't emphasize this enough. You have to use this flour. Add "approximately" 1 cup of buttermilk and 1 cup of water. You have to get the consistency right. Using a ladle put 3 dollops around edges and the remainder in the middle of the oiled pan. Then as the oil rises around the edges take a teaspoon and drizzle the excess oil over the top. Put the pan of biscuits in a 500 degree oven for 25 minutes or until nice and browned on top and then flip onto a plate. Make sure not to burn yourself! DANGER! DANGER! DANGER! I had smoke rolling off my hand through the oven mitt the other night so be careful and once you get it out throw that pan in storage in the bottom of your oven so it doesn't burn anyone else. 

Now, the main recipe if easy and delicious, the biscuits aren't that hard after fifty attempts and the green beans just don't burn Always use Move Over Butter for the biscuits and ENJOY some good old fashioned cooking!
