A brine made from Asian pork chops was used to cure the pork chops. By following this simple recipe, you can prepare these delectable Asian Brined Pork Chops in only 20 minutes.
Pork chops are traditionally marinated in brine, which is a liquid solution. The brine in pork chops helps to keep the meat wet and juicy during the cooking process.
Preparing pork chops for grilling, pan-frying, roasting, or baking requires the use of brine.

- Add a pinch of salt to the pork chops before cooking them.
- In a jar or saucepan large enough to hold the pork chops, combine the Brine ingredients. Make a brine and marinate the pork chops for at least two hours or, better yet, overnight in the liquid.
- After brining the pork chops, take them from the brine and allow them to come to room temperature before cooking. To dry the pork chops, use a paper towel to pat them dry.
- In a medium-sized nonstick skillet, warm the frying oil. Pups should be pan-fried for 4-5 minutes on each side. Foil-wrap the pork chops after they’ve been transferred. Before serving, let them sit for 8-10 minutes.
- Pork chops without bones can be used instead. Cooking time should be taken into consideration.
