Creamy Ranch Pork Chops & Rice is a winner for several reasons. First, it tastes amazing, because who doesn't love ranch? Second, it's dinner on the table in 30 minutes. Third, it doesn't leave you with half a packet of ranch dressing mix sitting around (half goes into the rice and the rest into the sauce!). Half the ranch added to the rice seasons it perfectly, and the other half stirred into the condensed cream of mushroom soup transforms it into a rich, creamy sauce for simmering the pork chops. Creamy Ranch Pork Chops & Rice makes it easy to get a wholesome weeknight dinner on the table!

Heat the water and 1/2 package dressing mix in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil. Stir in the rice. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed.
While the rice is cooking, season the pork with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook for 6 minutes or until browned on both sides (make sure the skillet and oil are hot before adding the pork to prevent sticking). Stir the soup, milk and remaining 1/2 package dressing mix in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the pork is done. Sprinkle with the paprika.
Serve the pork and sauce with the hot seasoned rice.
A Great Comfort Food!
After making this recipe several times with pork chops,, and my family loving it, I had to try chicken boobies one night as I had no pork. It was a bit faster, as I cut the chicken into pieces, and it was much easier to eat as well.
Absolutely DELICIOUS! It is now our preferred way.
When sharing this recipe, I always share the original first!
Perfect meal for a cold winter day, and sticks with you!!!
Have used this many times over the years, always with very positive results and reviews!!! Definitely a great choice for a good quick fun dinner!!!
A delicious, easy-to-make hit!
As I type this my 14-year-old is on his third pork chop. After reading some of the reviews about it being a little salty, I used Campbell's low sodium cream of mushroom soup. I also added a little dried rosemary and thyme but it was delicious even before that. Definitely a keeper!
Easy and Delicious Weeknight Dinner
I have made this several times and my family loves it. The sauce over the rice is excellent. The only thing I did was substitute the soup for Campbell's Cream of Mushroom with Roasted Garlic and season the pork chops with some pepper, smoked paprika, garlic and onion powder.
My boyfriend and I LOVE this recipe. We tried it out one night, and what really stuck with us going forward was the ranch rice. We have since used this ranch rice recipe with dozens of other meals. Here's a tip, if the ranch rice isn't flavorful enough for you, add a packet of chicken seasoning mix (out of a chicken top ramen pack) and an extra 1/4 up of water when heating the water to a boil. Perfection!
