Brined Pork Chops - Olive Branch Oil & Spice

Brined Pork Chops

Jul 07, 2024

These pork chops are amazingly flavorful from a simple garlicky, herby brine.



  1. Mix the water, salt, sugar, pepper, coriander seeds, bay lead, rosemary and garlic in a pot and bring to a simmer. Mix well until the salt is dissolved, turn off the heat and cool.

  2. Once cooled, transfer the brine to a bowl or a food storage bag and add the pork chops. Brine the pork chops for 2 hours or up to overnight. Remove the pork chops from the brine, rinse and dry with a paper towel.

  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil and butter. Cook the pork chops for about 8 minutes per side until seared well and cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees. Rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
