I was never a fan of pork chops until I tried this recipe which has become a family favorite. These chops are not only simple to make but turn out moist and tender every time. Although the process takes time the physical preparation is very minimal and very easy to do. This recipe is based on approximately 3/4 inch chops, with thicker chops I increase the cure time and thinner chops would be decreased. Feel free to add any dried herbs or spices to the cure, I just use black pepper. I store any leftover cure in sealed container and put it in the freezer.
