Ranch Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

I know that you probably have made something similar to this: pork chops in a slow cooker with ranch packet & a can of condensed soup. Simple? Yes. Healthy? Not terrible but not good for us. I needed a less sodium, low-fat version and I like control over my food. It takes a few more minutes but seriously, it’s worth it to make your own seasoning and cream of ______ soup mix.
