What I feel are The Best Pork Chops for Baking in this recipe

  • Boneless pork chops will cook faster and are easier to serve. Just slice them up and you’re done!
  • Bone-in pork chops have more flavor ( my opinion) and won’t overcook as quickly. There’s more leeway in the cooking time, but that also means that they generally take longer to bake. 

It’s just my opinion, but I would rather save the bone-in pork chops for grilling and use boneless for this recipe.

Ranch seasoning packets that you buy at the store are light on the herbs and heavy on the salt and dried buttermilk, so if you are making this at home, you can use real dried herbs and make something really special.

And although you can buy dried buttermilk, I prefer to skip it and just make the dry mix with the spices. I then mix the spices into real buttermilk when I want a batch of ranch dressing or a marinade. The ranch flavor in this recipe isn’t as strong as a store bought mix or ranch dressing. It has similar flavors but isn’t quite as tangy. Of course, you can always serve the dish with a side of ranch dressing for more ranch flavor!

If you want to make ranch dressing with the leftover seasoning mix, combine 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup buttermilk, and 3 tablespoons of ranch seasoning mix in a jar with a lid and shake well.

The recipe for the ranch mix here makes more than you’ll need for the pork chops and veggies, This seasoning mix can be used very liberally on meats and veggies, or stirred into mayo, Greek yogurt, and buttermilk to make a great salad dressing.

Make It a Meal!

If you put four pork chops on a sheet pan, you’ll have a lot of room left over. Fill that space with delicious roasted veggies.I like a mix of mushrooms, carrots, and new potatoes, but you can also use sweet onions, red peppers,  even broccoli florets.

The veggies I used need longer to cook than the pork chops though, so I recommend starting them by themselves, roasting them for about 20 minutes, and then stirring them before nestling the pork chops in for the final 20 minutes or so of baking time.

Enjoy the real ranch seasonings in this recipe and the easy cleanup! I think your family will love it.

  5. Add the pork chops: Remove sheet pan and stir veggies. Remove pork chops from the marinade and pat them dry. Then nestle pork chops into the veggies on the sheet pan. Try to make sure everything is in a single layer, but its okay if the veggies stack a bit.
