Ingredients

Dry Ranch Seasoning:

  • 2 tbsp dried dill weed
  • 3 tbsp dried parsley
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper

Pork Chops:

  • 2 tbsp ranch seasoning
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 bone-in thick-cut pork chops, approximately 1” thick
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Set aside. 

  2. To make the ranch seasoning, combine all ingredients in a small bowl and stir well. 

  3. Rub pork chops with 2 tablespoons dry ranch seasoning (divided evenly among all 4 chops), until coated. (Store remaining ranch seasoning in an airtight container for later use). 

  4. Heat extra virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat before adding seasoned pork chops to skillet. Sear pork chops on each side until browned, approximately 2 minutes per side.  

  5. Once browned, transfer pork chops to the lined baking sheet, leaving room between each pork chop so they are not over-crowded. Place baking sheet in the pre-heated oven and roast for 8 minutes before turning each chop. Continue roasting another 4-6 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest portion of the chop reads 145°F (medium-rare) to 160°F (medium). 

  6. Remove chops from oven and let rest for 3-5 minutes before serving.
