I've been making a version of this for years. Instead of dry ranch dressing mix I use about a cup of ranch salad dressing and omit the milk. Also I add a half can of french fried onions mixed in, bake covered for 20-30 minutes at 350 then sprinkle the rest on top and bake un covered another 10 minutes or until the chops are done and the onions have crisped up. Also, the remaining sauce is great as topping to baked potatoes. Warning..this in NOT a low fat/calorie dish! Read More

These pork chops were a huge disappointment. I made them exactly as the recipe called for except that I added a little more ranch seasoning and even then they were tasteless. The pork chops came out chewy and it was just an extremely boring recipe. Tasted processed. Read More

In a house of 6 it is very hard to find things that someone does not fuss about. Well I found something in this. Everyone in the house loved it! My family told me that this is going to be a keeper recipe. I did cook regular rice and put some of the ranch packet in the rice, not to mention if you are going to use the sauce as a "gravy" you may want to double the recipe. Read More

This is one of my go-to staple comfort foods I make when I either low on time or in a funk and need something warm and familiar. I suggest that you use a homemade ranch dressing mix, sans salt, as the soup is salty enough on it's own. I mix ranch dressing mix with plain AP flour, coat the pork chops in the flour/ranch mixture and then fry them on both sides. I then saute an onion and chopped mushrooms in butter and then add the soup and milk to make the sauce. EDITED: I made this again tonight, adding a little worchestershire sauce and a touch of sour cream. I layered the pork chops in a baking dish and covered it with sauce and baked it for an hour until it was all fall-aparty. I served it with fluffy rice and steamed broccoli. Again, everyone loved it. HUGE success. NO leftovers. Read More

This made pork chops GOOD food again! I can't give 5 stars since I adjusted... I fried 4 strips of bacon first, retained the bacon on the side and dumped out all bu 1 Tbsp of the drippings. Fried the chops in THAT instead of plain vegetable oil. I also added 1 Tbsp of minced garlic and used only 1/8 cup of milk, then substituted regular ranch dressing instead of the packet. This was a HUGE hit at my house and goes in the permanent file. Read More

My husband and I love this recipe! I made it once using prepared ranch dressing and the other time using the dried mix and both ways were great (the powder has more zip to it). I make mashed potatoes as a side and use the gravy on the potatoes. This one will be a regular at our house! Read More

This recipe was great. I used regular pork chops nothing thick. I coated my chops in Italian seasoning Parmesan cheese and garlic powder. Fried them up and followed the rest of the recipe. It was wonderful. Kids and hubby gobbled it up. Thanks for sharing. Read More
