Good looking/easy Pork Chop recipe along with Brining Tips.

I get the weekly E-newsletter from The Splendid Table which is on NPR (National Public Radio) during the weekends, great show. Here is Lynne's Pork Chop recipe and some good comments on Brining. Add this recipe along with Brining to your kitchen skills. Here is the w/f/s link to read the complete article. BTW, read the Brining part before you freak out on the amount of sugar/salt in the brine!

Lynne's Tender Pan-Grilled Pork Chops

Serves 4

* Brine: 1/4 cup kosher salt, or 3 tablespoons regular salt
* 1/4 cup brown sugar
* 1 tablespoon ground chile, or hot pepper flakes
* 4 cloves garlic, crushed
* 4 1-inch thick pork chops (hopefully well marbled)

* Cooking: 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
* Fresh-ground black pepper
* 2 sprigs fresh thyme, or coriander
* 1/2 medium red onion, thin sliced

1. About an hour before cooking, in a deep stainless steel or glass bowl, blend salt, sugar, chile and garlic with 5 cups ice-cold water. Stir until salt is dissolved. Add chops and refrigerate.

2. Thirty minutes to an hour later, drain pork and pat dry (discard brine). In a large, heavy skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Once hot, add chops. Sprinkle with black pepper. Quickly sear on both sides.

3. Turn heat to medium-low; add herb and onion to pan. Cook 3 minutes per side, or until barely firm when pressed. Internal temperature should be 150 degrees F. Remove chops to a plate and keep warm (they'll need 5 minutes or so to settle and finish cooking).

4. Boil down any pan juices until they are syrupy and scrape them and the onions over the chops. Serve hot.

Looks good. I've been wanting to try brining. I recently had a huge bone-in pork chop that was brined in sweet tea. Absolutely delicious.

As always thanks for the recipe.
