So, go ahead and read a book for a bit. Find something good to watch on TV. Whip up that cocktail you’d like to have with dinner.
Because dinner will take care of itself and be ready when the buzzer goes off.
Can you use bone-in pork chops?
Yes, you totally can! And better yet, bone-in pork chops tend to hold moisture better, so they might be a better pick if you’re concerned at all about the tenderness of the pork.
In fact, you can use any cut of pork chop for this recipe as you see fit. If you’re curious about the other types and their advantages, you can read about them here: Bone-In vs. Boneless Pork Chops: Which Should I Buy?
Do you have to use smoked paprika?
There are two types of paprika you’ll typically find: “normal” paprika and smoked paprika.
The difference between the two is subtle, but the impact on the flavor can be huge. The difference comes in the chilis. Normal paprika uses crushed dried chilis, while smoked paprika uses chilis that are smoke-dried and then crushed.
You could substitute smoked paprika with normal paprika, but if you do, you could add a dash or two of liquid smoke to make up for the smokiness you’re missing with normal paprika.
How long do baked pork chops last?
Once baked, this sheet pan dinner should last up to three to four days in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
Can you freeze baked pork chops?
Yes, you totally can!
Once prepared, store pork chops and vegetables (ideally in separate containers) in sealed containers or freezer bags for up to two to three months.
Notes & tips for these ranch pork chops
- When preparing pork chops, there’s no need to rinse the meat before cooking. Doing so can needlessly spread bacteria around your kitchen. If anything, you can use a paper towel to gently pat the pork chops to remove any moisture.
- To help keep pork tender, bring the meat up to room temperature before cooking.
- Let the pork rest three to five minutes after baking to help lock in flavors.
