We did not care for this. After brining for 1.5 hrs, the loin chops were very salty and not tender, though they were somewhat moist. THis sounds very simple but I recommend caution if you have never brined meat. The title is "brine", but the description calls it a "marinade" so those that have never brined( like me) would be led to believe they are one and the same. Apparently they are not. While I didn't appreciate some of the pointed remarks that "everyone" should know to rinse the meat, I did follow the advice and I did use kosher salt. Otherwise I made no changes. Even with rinsing and not using table salt this was so difficult to eat. I had to hide it in big bites of mashed potato to finish. I don't think it's considered "messing up the recipe" to follow the author's instructions. This is supposedly lacking vital information but not every cook can be expected to know that. We will not attempt this again, even with alterations, sorry.
