Tired of eating tough, dry, bland pork? Try brining. It makes your pork tender, juicy, and incredibly flavorful. I prep this quickly in the morning, and then the chops are ready for cooking.
You Will Need
- 2 cups hot water
- 2 cups cold water
- 1/4 cup kosher salt
- 1/4 cup sugar
Place a large freezer bag in a big bowl, this will keep it stable while you’re mixing the brine. Add the salt and sugar and stir with a wooden spoon until dissolved completely. Add the cold water and the pork. Place in the fridge for 4-8 hours. Rinse meat and pat dry before cooking.
This sounds like effort but it is very simple. And worth it.
