Good pork chops that were very tender with a great flavor but I felt that they needed a bit of a kick -- maybe a bit of tabasco. Thanks Chia for sharing this very-easy-to-follow recipe.

I scaled this for 2 chops, made the brine at 9A.M. & fired up the barbie at 6P.M. They weren't the most tender chops I've eaten, possibly because my husband overcooked them (I wasn't watching him). The taste was excellent - love that garlic flavour. Thanx Chia!

Best pork chops ever. I didn't have molasses, so I used honey.
