Overnight Brined Pork Chop Recipe

Elizabeth BangComment

With Memorial Day right around the corner, we're so excited to get our grill on! Instead of grilling the same old thing, step up your game by putting into action one of our favorite techniques: brining meat.

What's brining you may ask? Brining is essentially when you submerge protein in salted water for anywhere from 2 - 24 hours. By letting it soak, it makes the flavors much more prominent and makes the meat so much jucier!

Check out one of our favorite overnight brined pork chop recipes below!
