Ingredients

Pork Chops: 
Apple Bacon Salad:

Directions

For the pork chops: Mix together the juice, salt and 1 gallon cold water. Submerge the pork chops and let brine in the refrigerator overnight.

In a large saute pan over high heat, warm the oil. Sprinkle the chops with the salt and pepper. Then add the chops to the oil and reduce the heat to medium. Sear the chops until browned on the first side, 4 to 5 minutes, and then flip and repeat the process on the second side. After cooking on the second side, remove the pork from the pan and drain out any excess oil from the pan. 

For the salad: Return the pan to medium-high heat with the oil. Then add the apples, bacon, onions and salt to the pan. Cook for 6 to 7 minutes, stirring throughout. Add the balsamic and sugar, and then reduce the vinegar for 2 minutes. After reducing, remove the pan from the stove and stir in the butter until smooth. Add the celery leaves. 

Serve the chops with the apple bacon salad.
