Apple Cider Brined Pork Chops

5-6 bone in Pork Chops, 1.5”-2” thick

1 Orange, sliced

In a saucepan, combine all ingredients except pork and ice. Heat until simmering, stirring to dissolve all the salt. Pour into a large bowl, add ice and stir until ice has melted.

Refrigerate for 30-60 minutes until cooled down, add pork chops and marinate 4-8 hours.

Preheat grill to 425

Remove chops from brine and dry with paper towels. Grill 4-5 minutes, if you want crosshatch then flip 90 degrees at the halfway point, for each side. Rest 5-minutes and serve with Gaga’s Homemade Applesauce!
