Ranch Roasted Pork Chops & Red Potatoes

Introduction

A tasty twist on boneless pork chops! A tasty twist on boneless pork chops!
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    *4 boneless pork chops (I use 2 butterfly-cut chops, split down the middle to make 4 chops)
    *400 grams red potatoes (8-9 small)
    *5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    *1 oz. pkt. Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing & Seasoning Mix
    *3 tbsp diced pimentos
    *onion, sliced, 10 rings
    1/4 cup water

Directions

Preheat oven to 350*
1. Rinse and slice potatoes into bite-size chunks.
2. Mix olive oil and Ranch seasoning packet in a bowl.
3. Dip pork chops in olive oil mix to coat both sides and place in a baking dish.
4. Put potatoes into olive oil mix, shake to coat, and place around pork chops.
5. Place onion rings over the chops and potatoes.
6. Sprinkle pimentos over the top.
7. Add water and cover dish.
8. Bake at 350* for 40 - 45 minutes or until chops are cooked through and potatoes are tender inside. I removed the cover after about 30 minutes to allow the potatoes to get a little crispy.

    This was sooo good!I love it b/c I'm a college student and I don't have a ton of time (or money...only a few ingredients!) to waste on preparing food.This took me 15 mins TOPS before baking!I just upped the temp to 375, cooked for 1hr instead of 350 & 45min.I suggest having a side of veggies too! :) - 3/3/10

    I read the comments and decided and decided to slice my potatoes instead of cubing them. I also skipped the oil and made a thin paste with water and ranch mix. I brushed it on both sides of the chops. I mixed a little of the dressing and a butter to toss on the potatos. - 10/14/08

    I considered the time concerns &chopped my potatoes bite size; added some carrots cut the same size as the potatoes, and since I didn't have any pimemtos added roasted red pepper...It was SO good, the pork chops were moist, pots done. OH, left out 2 tbs oil, because of peppers. YUM :) - 10/9/08

    I would never make this again. It tasted disgusting. It tasted way overseasoned. 40-45 minutes was not enough to cook this at the temperature in the recipe. The potatoes were mushy, even though I removed the foil halfway through cooking. - 3/30/10

    The adults liked this, but my picky kids didn't. That's ok though, it makes just enough so none will waste. It was easy to make, but I had to cook it for about an hour and a half in order for the potatoes to get done. Probably will make again. Makes a good wintertime comfort food. - 2/11/09

  • I agree that 40-45 minutes at 350* is definitely not long enough for the potatoes to be done. Next time we are going to cut the potatoes a lot thinner and up the temperature. That said, this was absolutely delicious as far as flavor was concerned. My kids even liked it and they are picky eaters. - 3/4/14

  • Tasty! TIPS: 1. If you use regular, not red, potatoes, pre-cook them for a few minutes in the microwave. 2. Don't add too much water. 3. Use thick, not thin, pork chops. 4. Add some fresh broccoli florets -- they're really good in this dish. - 11/12/13

  • I tried this the same way it says on here, but it wasn't cooked fully at that time. I sliced the onions up pretty good and i had to cook the dish an extra 20 minutes and put half a packet of the Ranch seasoning mix and oregano on top of the potatoes/pork chops. - 8/13/13

  • Made this last night. It's a keeper & a #5. DH really liked it. Didn't have the pimento, no other changes made except to slice the potatoes 1/4" thick. This did take around 1 1/2 hrs. to get done. Chops were fork tender. Will make again. - 6/27/13

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • I made this with no onion or pimentos due to tastes in the household, but it was still delicious. I did not have the same problem in having to cook longer as it was actually borderline close to starting to get overdone after the 45 minutes. - 6/8/13

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No

  • Great recipe! I didn't have pimentos, so I used 1/2 red bell pepper & a jalepeno instead. Also, I used Chef Meg's Ranch Seasoning. DH & I thoroughly enjoyed it. It took over an hour in the oven, I think I should have cut the potoatoes smaller than I did. - 2/27/13

  • It got 4 stars because the pork chop came out very tender and it was very easy to put together. I did need to cook it longer than called for to get the potatoes done. It was just a little oily tasting and bland for me. Next time, I'll make adjustments but it is definitely a recipe to try again. - 11/4/12

  • This was okay... The potatoes were good, but the pork was kinda bland. When it was done cooking, there was a lot of liquid in the dish, so that may be why. I think next time I'll brown the chops a little in a pan before baking? - 8/2/12

  • My family loved this recipe! I didn't have any pimentos so I roasted a green pepper and used it in place of it. The only thing is after coating both sides of the chops (3) we had nothing left to coat potatoes with, so we made a second batch of the dressing/oil mix. Thanks for sharing. - 1/9/12
