All you need is a simple blend of dry buttermilk powder and spices to pack this dish full of flavor!

Don’t want to cook your boneless pork chops in the oven? Serve up the same tangy flavors with this slow cooker version instead. Make it a full meal with some freshly cooked pasta to soak up all of that creamy sauce. We also have a cast iron pork chop with apples that is fabulous!

I also have a super simple air fryer boneless pork chops recipe, or cook the meat with a delicious gravy in your Instant Pot!

Recipe Tips

  • Prep ahead! If this dish becomes a part of your regular rotation, you can mix up a big batch of the seasoning and store it in a sealed container. Then, measure out about ½ cup of the mixture to make this recipe.
  • Tip for easy cleanup: Line your baking sheet with foil first. When it’s time to do the dishes, just crumple it up and throw it away. Easy peasy! 
  • Short on time? Replace the homemade seasoning mix with two packets of dry ranch dressing mix instead.
  • Use a meat thermometer. The thickness of each chop will affect the overall cooking time. Once they reach an internal temperature of 145°F, they’re done!

Baked Ranch Pork Chops FAQ

Can you freeze oven baked pork chops?

Absolutely! Once cooled, wrap each one tightly in plastic and place them in a freezer bag for extra protection. Freeze for 3 to 4 months and thaw in the refrigerator before reheating.

You can also keep leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Heat them in the oven or microwave until warmed through.

What is dry buttermilk powder?

It’s a shelf-stable version of the dairy ingredient, made by concentrating the liquid and drying it into a powder. It’s often found in the baking aisle near the evaporated milk.

In case you can’t find it at your local store, you can also purchase it online. It will last for years in a cool, dry pantry.

How do you keep baked ranch pork chops from drying out?

Be sure to cover them with foil when they first go in the oven. This helps lock in the moisture before it’s time for them to brown.

You could also add a little chicken stock to the pan while it bakes, and don’t forget to let the meat rest before slicing!

Enjoy!

Ingredients
 

  • 4 boneless pork chops, thick cut 1-inch

Ranch Seasoning

  • 1/4 cup dry buttermilk powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onions
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • scallions, sliced (optional garnish)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Add all seasoning ingredients to a shallow bowl or plate and mix thoroughly with a spoon to combine.
  • Dip each pork chop in the ranch seasoning, turning it over to coat both sides. Shake off excess, then transfer onto a rimmed baking sheet or casserole dish.
  • Cover the pan with aluminum foil and place the seasoned pork chops in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes.
    After 10 minutes, remove the foil, and use tongs to flip the pork chops over. Continue baking for 5 – 15 minutes.
    Pork chops are done when the internal temperature at the thickest portion of meat reaches 145°F.
  • Let pork chops rest for 5 minutes before serving. If desired, sprinkle scallions over the chops for garnish.
    Serve while warm, and enjoy!

  1. These are pretty tasty! I made these the day before and marinated them in the refrigerator overnight. Finger licking good!

  2. I’m curious about the buttermilk powder…why not a liquid buttermilk and can the powder be substituted with anything else?

    1. Thanks for catching that, Ana! Bake the chops in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

    I’ve been afraid to cook pork, but wanted to give it a shot. I have to say it came out so much better than I expected! I think I’ll be making pork often now that I feel comfortable doing it.
