Ranch-seasoned pork chops are browned in the same pan used to simmer the simple pan sauce of wine, lemon juice, and broth.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 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

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Sprinkle pork chops with ranch dressing mix.
  2. 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. 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.

Chef's Notes

Substitute lime juice for the lemon if desired.
