    Used the casserole recipe. Didnt pay attention to amount of ranch. Put faaaaar to much in but still nice

    This was a good recipe. Simple pork chop dressed up with a great butter. I love the butter recipes.

    For the casserole, I made the DD ranch recipe, which calls for salt and pepper. Other recipes have indicated to leave out salt and pepper if it's already in your spice mix. You shouldn't do that here. The recipe doesn't call for much of the spice mix, so the extra salt and pepper is needed.

    The cabbage casserole is tasty! I subbed evaporated milk for cream and didn't add the sour cream, as I was out. It still turned out nicely.

    This recipe is amazing! I skipped the ranch and it came out phenomenal. Definitely a favorite. Made the pork (added seasonings) but without the butter.. also amazing. Great combo.
