Oven Baked Pork Chops Made With Dry Ranch Seasoning
These pork chops are beyond simple, making them perfect for weeknight dinner. Just 3 ingredients and about 30 minutes to make these chops.
I love any recipe that can be made with just a few ingredients that you keep on hand. Considering pork chops and oil are two of the ingredients, really it’s the dry ranch mix that you need to make sure you have stocked in your pantry. I buy the large container of dry ranch mix that Costco carries because well I like ranch. . . a lot.
How Long Do Pork Chops Take To Bake
I like to cook my chops high and fast. 425ºF for about 30 minutes (depending on thickness) then broil on high the last 5 minutes.
This time is for pork chops that are about 3/4 inch thick. You may need to add or subtract to cooking time depending on the thickness of your pork chops.
What Temp Should Pork Chops Be Cooked To
Check out this handy Pork Temperature Breakdown by Pork.org. Basically for pork chops you want the internal temp to reach 145ºF-160ºF. That is a wide range because it depends how you like your pork cooked, medium-rare to well.
