Ranch Pork Chops

November 7, 2012

We are HUGE fans of The Pioneer Woman’s Ranch Style Chicken.  I’ve been saying for ages that it would make a marvelous base for pork as well, so I finally got around to giving it a try with a few change.  OMG, SO GOOD.  I wished I’d doubled the recipe.  Serves 2.


  • 1/8 cup dijon Mustard
  • 1/8 cup honey
  • 1/8 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Crushed red pepper (optional to taste–I put about 1/2 tsp in the marinade)
  • 2 1/2″ thick pork chops
  • 3 strips of thick cut bacon
  • 1 ounce of smoked gouda, shredded


  1. Mix the mustard, honey, lemon juice, paprika, salt, and crushed red pepper.
  2. Pop the pork chops in a zip lock bag with the marinade and let hang out for at least an hour, preferably two.
  3. When ready to cook, cut the bacon in half and place in a cold skillet.  Cook over medium heat until done.
  4. Reserve a few tablespoons of the grease.
  5. Preheat your grill to about 350 degrees.
  6. Remove the pork chops from the marinade and pop on the grill.  Brush with bacon grease.
  7. Grill for approximately 8-10 minutes a side.
  8. Remove from grill and immediately top with the shredded gouda and bacon.
  9. Serve with salad or some other side.  Enjoy!
