The Ultimate Ranch Pork Chop Recipe: Easy, Healthy, and Delicious!

My family gobbled these grilled ranch pork chops right up! I always get excited about finding a delicious and easy meal that my picky kids enjoy too. And not requiring any advance prep or planning is a nice bonus sometimes.

This ranch pork chop recipe takes less than 30 minutes to make from start to finish, but still yields a juicy, nicely seasoned piece of meat! Easy enough for a weeknight or any day, delicious enough for dinner guests!

Oh, and it’s super healthy too… if you’re tracking Weight Watchers freestyle points, you’ll be happy to know this is only 4 points per serving! (See all of our Weight Watchers Recipes!)

Healthy Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix

I use this homemade Ranch seasoning mix recipe to make these healthy ranch pork chops. Here’s all you need to make it yourself:

  • 1/3 cup dry powdered buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried dill weed
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt

You can easily make it dairy-free by omitting the dry powdered buttermilk.

It’s nice to have a healthier homemade version of Ranch dressing mix that can be used in pretty much any recipe that calls for the store-bought packet. Once you make the homemade stuff, just throw it in the fridge then use it here and there with recipes like these pork chops and this one!

How to Get Perfectly Done Ranch Pork Chops on the Grill

You want to have perfectly done pork chops? Yeah, baby. I highly recommend using a meat thermometer to know when it is time to take them off the grill. Takes the guesswork out of it and helps you get the results you really want nearly every time.

Also, once they’re done grilling, let the pork chops rest for 5 minutes, tented loosely with foil. This will make them even juicier and more tender.

By the way, I’m sure this recipe would be great with chicken too! The cooking time would just need to be adjusted accordingly. You want the chicken to get to 165 degrees F internally before removing it from the grill.

As a couple of alternatives: you can also cook these ranch pork chops on the stovetop with a grill pan or skillet, or in the oven under the broiler. Super versatile!

Easy Grilled Ranch Pork Chops Recipe – 4 Weight Watchers Points

5 / 5 (3 reviews)
Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 4 | Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Ranch seasoning mix (I use this Ranch seasoning mix)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels. Drizzle the olive oil over both sides of the pork, spread to coat evenly. Then sprinkle the dry Ranch mix, salt, and pepper over both sides.
  2. Preheat gas grill on medium high heat for about 15 minutes. Clean the grates, then use long grill tongs, paper towel, and cooking oil to oil the grates.
  3. Grill the pork chops for about 4-6 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the cut. Pork chops are done when meat thermometer reaches 140 degrees F when inserted into the center. Remove from grill and let rest for 5 minutes, tented loosely with foil. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.

Notes

Alternatively, cook the pork chops on the stove top with a grill pan or skillet, or in the oven under the broiler. Just 4 Weight Watchers Freestyle Points per serving!
