We consider ourselves a jaded bunch of culinarians in the Home Chef test kitchen; there isn't a flavor combination that hasn't hit our experienced palate. That was until Chef Jimmy presented us with the ranch crust on this pork chop. We were lining up for seconds and thirds. You won't have that luxury, but once you order this meal, you'll have something almost as good: the recipe. No matter if you’re a newbie who just learned how to hold a knife, or chef with twenty years experience; this meal both surprises and delights.

    Sear and Bake the Pork Chops

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add pork chops to hot pan and sear until golden brown, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer pork chops to prepared baking sheet and spread crust evenly over each chop. Top crust with crushed croutons. Place in hot oven and bake until pork chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 8-12 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. While pork chops bake, cook green beans and tomatoes.
