The BEST Damn Pork Chops Recipe

These pork chops are so moist, flavorful, and delicious…they truly are the BEST damn pork chops recipe ever! You’ll be shocked at how easy the best damn pork chops recipe is to make!

The BEST Damn Pork Chops Recipe

Okay, so you know I rarely ever use such choice words on the blog but this recipe seriously deserves the accolade.  I mean can you really refer to the term “damn” as an accolade? Well, in this instance, YES- YES YOU CAN!

The first time Hubs ever tasted these pork chops he boasted “these are by far the BEST damn pork chops you’ve ever made” so the name of these was formed….they are now titled “The BEST Damn Pork Chops Recipe“.  Although now that we have 2 kids (one that is currently repeating EVERYTHING we say) we now refer to them as the best D pork chops.

I absolutely love it when I develop a recipe that’s not only SUPER delicious but that’s also ridiculously easy to make!  With a toddler and a newborn I just don’t have the time or energy to be spending tons of time in the kitchen making dinner every night!  I’d much rather spend that time chilling with a glass of wine while Hubs corrals the children!

Can you believe that these pork chops take just 30 minutes in the oven?!  Yep, I can whip these together with some rice and steamed green beans during a single episode of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse!

I think the key to them baking so fast is the caste iron dish that I use when baking them.  I love cooking with caste iron…it makes everything taste better!

Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 4
  • 4 Pork Loin Boneless Chops

  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • ½ Cup Panko Breadcrumbs
  1. Trim fat off pork chops.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Mix together Mayo, ranch mix, and garlic- until well mixed.
  4. Add shredded cheese into ranch mixture and mix well.
  5. Place pork chops in a baking dish.
  6. Spread cheesy garlic ranch mixture on top of pork chops.
  7. Sprinkle Panko breadcrumbs on top of pork chops.

Oh, these pork chops pair perfectly with the Sauvignon Blanc from Heartwood & Oak.  Right now they have a BOGO deal going on which makes 2 bottles just $10!  It is a wine club but the prices are awesome…regular price is less than $14 a bottle.  Seriously, give it a try– you can always cancel anytime.

    Decided to try this tonight using Parmesan cheese. I have two boys that don’t really like cheese or mayo but I have a chicken recipe that combines mayo with parm. cheese and they gobble that up so I figured why not try adding the spices and breadcrumbs and subbing out pork chops. Hopefully they’ll devour it like they do the chicken. Thanks for the inspiration.

    So I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I was trying to read the recipe,and so many ads were popping up, moving the screen, overlaying the article, etc every 3- 4 seconds, I couldn’t actually read the recipe. Every time I’d read a line, another one would either pop up over it, or completely scroll the article top move me to an ad. I’m on my phone, so maybe a different experience. I get the point of ads, but it’s so much I can’t get the actual recipe you probably worked really hard on!

    • says

      Oh no! Thanks for letting me know. I’ll get in touch with my ad network and find out what’s going on and tell them to throttle down on the ads. I’m so sorry about that I had no idea.

    I tried these tonight. They were just ok for us. I did not like the bread crumbs on the top. They came out of the oven just like I had just sprinkled them on out of the container before serving. Yucky. The never got moist when the cheese and topping cooked. I don’t know how to prevent this but if I can’t figure out why I will not make them again. The rest had nice taste. Suggestions??

  4. Susan Cushine says

    Made these tonite. Should be called Damn Slammin’ Pork Chops!!I have a picky household. Not with these chops. Awesome recipe. Served them with butter herb rice, corn and avocado. Delicious. Still had and little left over for lunch and work tomorrow.:)

    I have made these once before and they were so yummy!!! I want to make them and take to a friend who recently lost a loved one. Would it be okay to cook them and let her family just reheat their portion in the microwave? Thoughts? I know my son loved them the next day…but wasn’t sure if that was a good plan or not?

    • says

      I think that would be fine. They do reheat well…my kids love these pork chops the next day!

      What I typically do when taking something like this to a friend is buy those disposable aluminum pans–that way they don’t have to think about returning it. I put the meal all together…including throwing in some veggies like green beans and carrots. Then just place the heating instructions on the top of the container. That way it’s fresh and they have a whole meal that they can just slide into the oven or they can freeze it for a later date depending on how much food they have received.

    Made the pork chops tonight and they were fantastic. I did have to make a couple of changes..did not have Hidden Valley Ranch packet dressing but did have Good Seasons Italian packet dressing. Used 2 tsps of that and didn’t have plain shredded cheddar but had shredded cheddar with taco used that. Excellent. Can’t wait to try with correct seasonings.

    • says

      That sounds like some delicious changes! I’ve also used different cheeses for this recipe…usually whatever I have on hand link Colby Jack, Triple Cheddar, Monterrey, etc. I’m so happy that you enjoyed this recipe!

  7. Elizabeth says

    These were absolutely delicious pork chops (I had bought a Pork Loin and sliced it into chops). I used fresh garlic. Will definitely make these again.
    This might be good on top of chicken too.

  8. Heather says

    Excellent pork chops!! Can’t wait to make again. My picky husband and 2 children devoured them. I doubled the mayo, ranch and garlic, it was perfect!!! Thank you so much for a great dish!!!

  9. Gigi says

    This turned out very moist and cooked perfect. Reduced the Ranch Dressing to 1 teaspoon but that is due to our taste. I used one and half inch thick chops. The only other difference I did was to lightly oil a cast iron skillet and bake them in that. Great and moist. Good to find a recipe that works with the leaner pork. Also for those that do not want to use mayo, plain yogurt will work as well. Have not tried sour cream. Thank you for post this recipe.

      I’m so glad that you enjoyed this recipe. We have subbed out the mayo for plain greek yogurt too and it tastes just as good. Thanks for the nice comment and sharing your experience with this recipe.

  10. Angela says

    It’s so yummy!! I love it so much! My mother in law made it and when I asked for guidance on how to cook them, she is so proud and happy to show me your website !!!

    Thank you and they are really awesome !

  11. Carrie Willhite says

    This recipe did not work for me. I used the dry ranch mix as stated and it all clumped together. Looks so good in the pic, but not sure why mine were terrible!

  12. Dolores carley says

    These did not work for me. My pork chops were dry
    And the tops were not brow.n. I would not make them

    • says

      I’m so sorry that this recipe did not work for you. Depending on the thickness of your pork chops you may need to adjust the cooking time to make sure that they don’t overcook– I like thick pork chops so the cooking time is based on chops being 1 1/2-2 inches thick. When I make these I have them about 6 inches from the heating element.

  13. Mari says

    You said 2 Tbs. of Mayo and to spread it on……It seems very dry and crumbly with only 2 Tbsp. I’m tempted to add more. LOL

    • says

      We’re not big mayo fans here but by all means you can add more mayo if you think it’s not enough. Once the cheese melts though it should be creamy with a nice crispy coating. 🙂 I hope you like it!!

  14. Deanne says

    Am I missing a link or something? I don’t see a recipe. These look so good, would love to try and make them.
