Ranch Rubbed Roasted Pork Chops Recipe
With our Ranch Rubbed Roasted Pork Chops Recipe there is no need to buy pre-packaged ranch dressing or seasoning when it is so easy to make your own. Use the recipe homemade ranch seasoning without buttermilk provided below as a guideline, then adjust the seasonings to suit your own tastes. Once you’ve found the perfect blend, you can mix up larger batches and store the excess in an airtight container for several months. This seasoning is excellent on meats, in homemade salad dressings, or blended with Greek yogurt for a healthy vegetable dip.
Ranch Rubbed Roasted Pork Chops Recipe Instructions:
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 16-18 minutes
Dry Ranch Seasoning:
- 2 T. dried dill weed
- 3 T. dried parsley
- 2 t. onion powder
- 2 t. garlic powder
- ½ t. freshly ground black pepper
- 2 t. kosher salt
- 2 T. ranch seasoning (recipe above)
- 1 T. extra virgin olive oil
- 4 bone-in thick-cut pork chops, approximately 1” thick
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Set aside.
To make the ranch seasoning, combine all ingredients in a small bowl and stir to combine.
Rub pork chops with 1-2 tablespoons dry ranch seasoning (divided evenly among all 4 chops), until coated. (Store remaining ranch seasoning in an airtight container for later use).
Heat extra virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat before adding seasoned pork chops to skillet. Sear pork chops on each side until browned, approximately 2 minutes per side.
Once browned, transfer pork chops to the lined baking sheet, leaving room between each pork chop so they are not over-crowded. Place baking sheet in the pre-heated oven and roast for 8 minutes before turning each chop. Continue roasting another 8-10 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest portion of the chop reads 145°F (medium-rare) to 160°F (medium).
