  • I use quick fry pork chops with this recipe. I don't add other spices. The brown sugar helps with the searing and makes a nice natural sauce out of it too!

I used this brine recipe for a 4 lb. pork shoulder roast. I marinated overnight. I cooked in slow cooker and we ate it on onion rolls with some pickled peppers I canned. My family ate and ate. We all loved the bit of tangy flavor of the meat. Simple and easy.
