This is a quickie marinade I make up as I go along, but these measurements are pretty close. Goes well with a side of just about any vegetable, but I usually serve steamed fresh green beans.
- Wash and pat dry pork chops with paper towel; poke several holes in them with a fork.
- In a shallow baking pan, mix together rest of ingredients.
- Place pork in marinade, turning to coat completely.
- Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour, turning at least once.
- Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
- Remove cover from pan, bake chops for about 30 minutes (or until done), turning at least once during cooking.
- Serve with baked potatoes, using cooked marinade and pan drippings to top.
Wonderful marinade that is worth waiting an hour for. I wanted to grab the little chops out sooner, but left them to bath blissfully in this very tasty, and lots of flavor marinade. Chops were fork-tender, and the gravy made for the sauce and the chops juice is just as wonderful while sitting atop a chop. I wouldn't and didn't change a thing. Very flavorful!
I am not posting a rating on this yet because I want to try a few things before making my final decision on it. To me, it was a bit too mustardy. The mustard seemed to overpower the ranch, making it taste more like "mustard chicken" than ranch chicken. BUT this may have been due some adjustments I made (I increased the recipe by half and substituted 1 tbsp. yellow mustard for the 1 1/2 tsp. dry mustard according to a substitution guide I found online.) Other than the overabundance of mustard, I think the chops themselves were nice and tender. But I did have to cook them longer than suggested. Again, this may have been due to my increasing the recipe. I will re-write this review if I try the recipe again.
Outstanding! Made the meat very, very tender. Used thick cut this time; will also be fab with other cuts of pork. I froze this, thawed, baked, and was completely satisfied! deb
