This is something we tried, because I keep hearing this holiday season about brining being the way to go with all types of meat. I had never brined anything before, but after one taste of these pork chops, I AM SOLD! This recipe is an adaptation from something I found on the Internet, but the original had lots of other ingredients. I wanted my first test for brining to be really simple to tell what brining really does for meat without overloading it with various flavors. This is written exactly as we did it. If you've never brined anything before, TRY THIS, it's incredible!
