Ranch Pork Chops Recipe Tips

  • Don’t Overcook: Be cautious not to overcook the pork chops, as they can become dry. To ensure perfectly cooked pork chops, invest in an instant-read meat thermometer. This way, you can accurately gauge the internal temperature, aiming for about 145˚F for optimal doneness.
  • Don’t Overload the Baking Sheet: Arrange the pork chops in a single layer on the baking sheet with enough space around them. Overcrowding can hinder even cooking and result in less crispy chops.
  • Rest Before Serving: Allow the cooked pork chops to rest for about 5 minutes before serving. This resting period allows the juices to redistribute within the meat.

Best Sides For Ranch Pork Chops

When serving pork, you have plenty of delicious side options to choose from. Creamy garlic mashed potatoes are a classic choice that pairs wonderfully with the savory ranch flavor of pork chops. For a flavorful side, roasted vegetables like parmesan carrots, broccoli, or Brussels sprouts are perfect companions to the ranch pork chops.

If you’re looking for something lighter, a simple green goddess salad with fresh lettuce adds a refreshing contrast to the hearty pork. For a bit of crunch and sweetness, creamy coleslaw made with homemade cream is an excellent addition. Sweet and buttery grilled corn on the cob makes a comforting side dish, while hearty baked beans, whether homemade or canned, are a flavorful option to round out your meal.

To store baked pork chops, place them in an airtight container or wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Refrigerate for up to 3-4 days. For longer storage, freeze the chops for up to 3 months. Thaw frozen pork in the refrigerator overnight before cooking.

  • Preheat oven to 425˚F.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper and lightly grease with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the Ranch Seasoning, paprika, salt, and pepper; mix well.
  • Coat both sides of the pork chops with the seasoning mixture and transfer the pork chops to the baking sheet.
  • Bake the pork chops for 10 minutes; turn over and continue to cook for 8 to 10 more minutes or until the pork's internal temperature registers at 145˚F. Use an instant-read meat thermometer to check for doneness.
  • Remove from oven; let the pork chops rest for 5 minutes before serving.


  • Avoid Overcooking: Prevent dry pork chops by using an instant-read meat thermometer. Aim for an internal temperature of about 145˚F for ideal doneness.
  • Space Out on Baking Sheet: Arrange pork chops in a single layer on the baking sheet with room around them to ensure even cooking and crispiness.
  • Rest for Flavor: Let cooked pork chops rest for 5 minutes before serving. This redistributes the juices, enhancing flavor and juiciness.
  • Customize the Seasoning: Feel free to customize the ranch seasoning mix and paprika to your liking. You can add a bit more or less of specific seasonings based on your taste preferences.
  • Serve with Complementary Sides: Pair the pork chops with a fresh garden salad, garlic mashed potatoes, or roasted vegetables.
