Easy Grilled Maple Ranch Pork Chops

A hit of Ranch and a swipe of maple syrup is the perfect sweet and savory pairing for these juicy pork chops. Pick out a thin cut that cooks quickly on the grill — it’s under 10 minutes to dinner in the best possible way when you follow our easy Grilled Maple Ranch Pork Chops recipe. We love these served with anything from sweet potato fries or butternut squash to charred summer vegetables.

Let's get grilling


Light Kingsford® charcoal according to package directions and arrange your coals for direct cooking over medium-high heat and grease the grates with oil. Rub the pork chops with the olive oil and sprinkle evenly with the ranch seasoning mix.


Place the pork chops on the grill. Cook for 2–3 minutes; then flip pork chops over and brush with maple syrup. Cook another 2–3 minutes until chops are charred at the edges and cooked through. 


Flip one more time, brush the other side with syrup and cook one minute more. Serve hot. 

Cooking for 6 people


  • thin-cut (1/2-inch-thick) bone-in pork chops
  • olive oil, plus more for greasing the grill
    2 tbsp.
  • Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning Salad Dressing & Recipe Mix
