  • 4 thick center-cut pork chops

  • 1 (1 ounce) package ranch dressing mix (such as Hidden Valley Ranch®)

  • 1 tablespoon butter, or as needed

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed

  • ¼ cup chicken broth, or more as needed

  • 3 tablespoons sweet Marsala wine

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice


  1. Sprinkle pork chops with ranch dressing mix.

  2. Heat butter and olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork chops and cook until browned, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Reduce heat to medium and cook, flipping occasionally, until chops are barely pink in the centers, 8 to 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

  3. Transfer chops to a warm platter; spoon on all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the pan. Pour broth, wine, and lemon juice into the pan and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits off the bottom with a wooden spoon. Simmer until sauce is reduced to desired thickness. Spoon over the chops to serve.

Cook's Note:

Substitute lime juice for the lemon if desired.
