A pork chop skillet recipe from Betty Crocker requires just 10 minutes of prep time and calls for pork chops, potatoes, carrots and onions. Another easy pork chop recipe is made in the slow cooker. With cream of mushroom soup, green beans and potatoes, it takes 10 minutes to prepare and cooks all day.

To make Betty Crocker's pork chop skillet meal, begin by removing the fat from 4 pork loin or rib chops. Spray a 12-inch skillet with cooking spray, and cook the pork chops over medium heat for five minutes, turning once. Add 1/4 cup beef or chicken broth, 4 quartered medium potatoes, 4 small carrots, cut into chunks, and 4 onions, cut into quarters. Season the food with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes. Garnish with parsley before serving.

To make pork chops in a slow cooker, pour 1 can of cream of mushroom soup into the bottom of a slow cooker. Add 1/4 cup water, and stir. Sprinkle 1 1/2 pounds of pork chops with a little black pepper, and place them in the slow cooker. Cook on low for seven to eight hours. Add 1 can green beans and 4 peeled and cubed potatoes. Cook on high for an additional 2 1/2 hours.
