After making my latest batch of bone in chops this way, I will *NEVER* make them any other way. Brandon HATES pork chops and loved them. They are so flavorful and moist. This is a simple recipe with things that you should have on hand anyway. This is my spin on an Anne Burrell recipe :)


Brined Pork Chops


  • 3-4 bone in pork chops
  • 1.5 quarts water
  • 1/3 cup salt
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar replacement (I used Ideal Brown. You can also use a regular sweetener if you don’t have a brown)
  • 3 tablespoons Herbes De Provence
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 ribs celery, diced
  • 1 large onion, roughly chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic (more if you like!), peeled and smashed


Not much to say for this recipe! Take everything, throw it in a container, and stick it in the fridge. I brined mine for about 24 hours, but these can stay in the brine for up to 3 days.

When you are ready to grill, take the chops out of the brine and let them come to room temperature (about 45 minutes). Grill until they are done to your liking. Mine took about 4-5 minutes per side.

I haven’t figured nutritionals on this since it’s impossibile to know how much is being pulled into the pork.
