Bacon Ranch Pork Chops in Gravy Sauce

I don't usually like pork chops, but after testing this recipe, I'll be making them a lot more. This  recipe for bacon ranch pork chops in gravy sauce turned out much better than I expected.  I wanted to make a lot so that I would have enough left over to put in the freezer for another day.  This time, I baked the pork chops in the oven but I think I'll adjust the recipe a little bit and try it in my slow cooker next.  I'll let you know how that turns out.

Bacon Ranch Pork Chops in Gravy Sauce

These are the ingredients I used:

12 Thinly Sliced Boneless Pork Chops
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 Cup Bacon Bits (You can use about 8 strips of real bacon, but I didn't have any today.)
1 Beef Bouillon Cube
1 Cup Boiling Water
1 Tablespoon Onion Powder (You can chop up one real onion, but again, I didn't have one tonight.)
3 Tablespoons Garlic Powder (You can use 2 minced cloves of garlic if you wish.)
1 Tablespoon Thyme
2 Tablespoons Light Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons Corn Starch
1/4 Cup Ranch Salad Dressing


Spray a 9 X 13  baking dish with Pam Cooking Spray.  Then, set it aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

In a large mixing bowl, mix together the soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, brown sugar, and salad dressing.  Blend together with a whisk or fork.

Boil one cup of water.  Dissolve the beef bouillon cube in the boiling water.  Now you have beef broth.  Allow the broth to cool.  Then, pour it in the mixture above.

Add the corn starch.  The gravy sauce will thicken up.

Add the pork chops and bacon bits into the mixture.  Mix it all up well.

Place the coated pork chops in the 9 X 13 baking dish.  Pour the excess gravy sauce mixture over the pork chops.

Bake at 350 degrees until the pork chops are cooked to your taste.  It doesn't take long to cook the thinly sliced boneless ones that I used.  I baked mine for about 20 minutes.
