Do you know what you’re making for dinner tonight? No? Well, don’t worry because we’ve got you covered.
We’ve found the easiest recipe for making tender, juicy pork chops.
There’s nothing worse than dry pork chops. They’re tough to cut and tough to chew, and quite frankly, not a lot of fun to eat.
When cooking pork chops, the trick is to brine them. Brining means to soak the meat in a salty liquid. This is the way to guarantee that you’ll have moist, delicious pork chops. While you may have heard that brining is just a time consuming, extra step, we assure you that even brining your pork chops for just 30 minutes (as opposed to the hours you may have seen on other recipes) will make a world of difference.
Check out how to brine and roast your pork chops below.
What You’ll Need:
- 3 c. of cold water
- 2 1/2 tbs. of salt
- 2 to 4 pork chops (center cut, bone on)
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
1. First, brine the pork chops. To do this, bring one cup of water to a boil, then add all of your salt. Stir it until it dissolves and then remove the pot from the heat. Add the other two cups of cold water to bring it down to room temperature. Place the pork chops in a shallow dish, and pour the brine over them so that they are completely covered in the brine. Cover the dish and place it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 4 hours.
2. Once the pork chops have brined for the desired amount of time, position your oven rack to the middle and preheat the oven to 400° F. Place an oven-safe skillet in the oven while it preheats.
3. Remove the pork chops from the brine and pat them dry with a paper towel. Rub both sides of the pork chops with olive oil, then season them with salt and pepper to taste.
