Pam's Brining Solution for Grilled Pork Chops

Pam Ellingson


Found this recipe online and decided to try it because Hubby loves pork chops but I never have any luck grilling them. The website "guaranteed" that grilled chops soaked in this brine would be Moist and delicious. They were right. My Husband LOVED them, and we both agreed that they were the best grilled pork chops ever.

loin rib pork chops about 1- 1 1/4 inch thick


2 c
chicken broth
1/4 c
kosher salt
1/4 c
brown sugar, packed
1/2 tsp
peppercorns, whole black
bay leaves
1 clove
garlic, sliced
2 slice
onion, thin slices
1/2 Tbsp

1First of all, the 6 hour cooking time includes brining.

2Heat all brine ingredients except ice until salt and sugar are dissolved.Remove from heat and add ice to cool to below 90 degrees.

3Place chops in Large Zipper storage bag or non reactive bowl, Add cooled brine. Brine for 2-8 hours in the refrigerator.

4Remove chops, let come to almost room temp, dry with paper towels and grill to desired doneness. Mine took about 20 minutes a side, flipped twice to get nice grill marks. Test with an instant thermometer to 160 degrees.
