One Pan Ranch Pork Chops

Ranch Pork ChopsSo this has to be the most flavorful recipe for pork chops that I have ever encountered! Not only do they manage to be stock full of flavor, but this recipe still allows for the pork to come out juicy and not all dried out. Since I am trying to bring different recipes into the home as of late, I decided to drift from chicken for a little bit and try my hand at some pork chops! Granted we had planned to grill them at first, but come to find out the grills downstairs are all busted and not in working order! But hey, at least it allowed me to get creative and come up with a solution!

What You’ll Need:

  • 4 (8 ounce) pork chops, bone in or out
    • I used bone out!
  • 16 ounces baby red potatoes, halved
  • 16 ounces green beans, trimmed
    • I opted out of the green beans altogether, we’re not much of a bean household
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 (1 ounce) package Ranch Seasoning and Salad Dressing Mix
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil baking sheet/dish or coat with nonstick spray.
  2. Place pork chops, potatoes and green beans in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with Ranch Seasoning and garlic; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Place into oven and roast until the pork is completely cooked through, if you happen to have a meat thermometer you will want it at 140 degrees F, about 20-22 minutes. Then broil for 2-3 minutes, or until caramelized and slightly charred.
    1. This was my first time broiling anything btw! It was exciting 🙂
  4. Serve immediately, garnish with the parsley, if desired.

Since I opted out of serving with green beans, because gross, I did a side Caesar Salad instead. The entire meal turned out super delicious and it was just the right amount per serving so that you don’t over indulge! We’re all about portioning over here as of late, well at least I am! I’m not dealing with those pesky leftovers any more! No WAY! Check out the link >>here<< for the original recipe from Damn Delicious! Happy cooking!
