Ingredients

4 double cut pork chops (ask your butcher)

4 cups Pork Brine, recipe follows

Salt and pepper

Salt and Pepper

2 tablespoons butter

2 Granny Smith apples, sliced thin

1/4 cup molasses

1/4 cup cider vinegar

Pork Brine:

4 ounces sugar

1/4 cup molasses

2 ounces kosher salt

2 quarts water

1/4 cinnamon stick

1/2 tablespoon coriander

1/2 tablespoon whole black pepper

2 garlic cloves, smashed

2 whole cloves

Directions

  1. Place the pork chops in a glass or ceramic baking dish that will hold them comfortably in a single layer. Pour the brine over the chops and place in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight. Remove the pork chops from the brine and season well with salt and pepper. Grill or roast until desired doneness, approximately 12 minutes for medium. Remove the chops from the oven and keep in a warm place while you prepare the apples. In a large saute pan, heat the butter over high heat. When it starts to brown add the apples and saute, tossing, for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the molasses, cook for 1 minute and add the cider vinegar and reduce by half. Place a pork chop on each plate and top with some apples and the cooking juices.

Pork Brine:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium sized pot and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let cool in the refrigerator. (Can store up to 1 month in the refrigerator.)
