"I use this brine for all pork cuts that I grill. It adds a subtle flavor to the meat without being too salty. The pork cooks up tender, moist and delicious every time."

garlic, gently crushed
fresh ginger, gently crushed
Used 4 good sized pork chops and made as written. Marinated for 8 hours. So much better then the ones I grilled a while back without the brine. Will be making this again.
great flavor, I did add half of a onion.will use recipe again.thanks
This is a wonderful recipe - the flavor is just incredible! I added a little (2-3 tsp.) toasted sesame oil because those flavors just begged to be together. The meat was juicy and tender and it looked like meat that had been smoked all day.
My kids were all but licking their plates and were begging for more! Thank you for sharing this!!! We also decided that it would be an excellent salad dressing.
