Step 1

In a medium bowl combine mayonnaise, sour cream, buttermilk, dill, parsley, chives, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper in a bowl. Stir well, cover and refrigerate.

In a medium bowl combine the vegetable oil, 1/2 cup of buttermilk Ranch dressing, garlic, molasses, anchovy paste and lemon. Whisk ingredients together. Place the pork chops in a sealable plastic bag and pour the marinade in the bag, seal and refrigerate 4 hours (or overnight).

Remove chops from the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking. Grill chops on indoor or outdoor grill until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees (approximately 5 minutes each side). Allow chops to rest for 5 minutes. While the chops are grilling/resting make the crumb topping.

Grate Parmesan cheese. Use half of the grated Parmesan for the crumb topping, mix the cheese, panko bread crumbs, garlic, salt and pepper. Next, melt butter and pour over the cheese and bread crumbs and stir to combine.

Mix the remaining Ranch dressing and remaining Parmesan cheese and spread a heaping spoonful over each chop. Finally, place a heaping spoonful of crumb topping over each chop.

Set oven to low broil and place chops in oven on middle rack for 3-4 minutes (or until topping is browned.)

Any left over Ranch Dressing and Parmesan cheese can be mashed into potatoes for a perfect side dish
