How to Make Brown Sugar Pork Chops
The salting in this recipe is simple, but the taste is tremendous! Toss the pork chops in the brine around noon and they'll be ready for dinner.
- Salt the pork chops.In a large bowl, combine warm water, balsamic vinegar and a tablespoon of sea salt. Stir them together until the salt dissolves. Add the pork chops to the brine, making sure they are completely submerged. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours.
- Dip pork chops in seasoned flour.In a small bowl, combine flour, 1 teaspoon each sea salt and black pepper, garlic powder and smoked paprika. Remove pork chops from brine and pat dry with paper towels. Dip each pork chop in the seasoned flour mixture and shake off excess.
- Fry the cutlets.Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the pork chops to the pan and sear for 7-8 minutes on each side. When the pork chops are browned and cooked through (they should reach an internal temperature of 145°F), remove them from the pan and place them on a clean plate.
- Make the sauce.While the chops are hanging on the plate, take the pan you used to cook the chops and melt some unsalted butter. Add water, brown sugar and soy sauce. Stir to combine and bring the mixture to a boil. Cook the sauce for 1-2 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened slightly.
- Cook the pork chops in the sauce for a few minutes.Return the pork chops to the pan, pour the sugar sauce over them and cook for another 2-3 minutes. The pork chops will become translucent and the sauce will continue to thicken.
- Enjoy!Arrange the pork chops on a platter and garnish with chopped fresh herbs. Drizzle the sauce over the pork chops and serve.
