Apple Cider Brined Pork Chops

Pork is a lean meat that can sometimes  be dry.   One way to get around that  is to do a brine.  Today I had 3 bone in chops and used 6 cups water, 3 Tbs each brown sugar and salt and 1 Tbs apple cider vinegar.  Measure salt and brown sugar into to a plastic or glass bowl and add ¼ cup hot water.  Stir to dissolve.  Top of with cold water to make approximately 6 cups.  Add chops and make sure they are completely submerged in the liquid.  Brine in refrigerator for 90 minutes.  Remove from brine and rinse under cold running water.  Set aside on plate and dry with paper towels.  Then season and prepare however you want.  These were pan seared then finished in a 400 degree oven.  Served along with steamed carrots and twice baked stuffed potato topped with cheese.
