Marinade Pork Chops:

Cook Pork Chops:

  1. Remove the pork chops from the brine and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill to high, or grill pan to medium-high heat. Lightly grease with oil.
  3. Place the chops on the grill or grill pan and cook for 6-8 minutes per side, or until the desired level of doneness.
