We love pork here in our house. Any kind of pork, ham, bacon, sausage, pork steaks, bacon, ribs, bacon. It's a pretty tasty meat and usually pretty fairly priced.
I happened to have some pork steaks that needed to be used and wanted to find something different to do with them. So to the internet I went... My search lead me to a recipe for Ranch Porkchops.
I will admit this dinner was not the most healthy of meals, and I had to run some extra miles to work it off, but it was pretty good even our 11 year old loved it.
So here it is....
Preheat oven to 400*
Use a dark cooking sheet and cover with tin foil for easier clean up
Spray tin foil with Pam
4 Pork chops
1 Cup Ranch Dressing
1/2 Packet of Italian Seasoning
1 1/2 Cups Italian bread crumbs
1/4 Cup Grated Parmesan
1 tsp Pepper
1 tsp of Seasoning salt
1. Combine Italian Seasoning, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese and pepper in a bowl. (You could also use a zip lock bag.)
2. Pour ranch dressing into a bowl.
3. Coat pork chops with ranch dressing.
4. Put ranch covered pork chop into bread crumbs and cover on all sides.
5. Put on pan and cook for about 40 min.
I cooked these at a higher temperature to try to prevent the breading from being too gooey. Just keep an eye on them at this temperature.
Next time I will not put such a think coating of ranch on the meat before the breading. I think this also attributed to the breading not being crispy.
This meal was pretty tasty and got pretty decent reviews from the family. I will be making it again. If you like pork this is a recipe you may want to give a try!
