"Tangy and sweet, and a very quick fixture to flavor, without much time! Once you have stirred water into the mixture, add pork chops. Let pork chops sit in the brine in the refrigerator for about 2 hours before cooking."

  • Cook's Note:
  • 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!
