Quick Tip – Pork Chop Brine

By Julie20160325_174452

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.
