Apple Cider Brine for Pork Chops

Meal prep! Brine or marinate your meat in the morning, put in the refrigerator to work all day while you play...then it's more flavorful when it's time to cook dinner!



Apple Cider Brine for Pork Chops


1 ½ cups apple cider

1 tablespoon juniper berries

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 heaping tablespoon coarse kosher salt

4 thick cut boneless or bone in pork chops (high quality - we buy Five Mary's Farm Pork)


Add all the brine ingredients together into a small pot, bring to a boil while stirring. Remove from heat and let cool. Add roughly 1 cup of ice cubes to a plastic Ziploc bag. Pour the bring mixture and add the pork chops into the bag. Seal and let them hang out for 4 – 8 hours in the refrigerator.
