Pork Brine Recipe

by Kevin H. on March 16, 2012 · 3 comments

You could use my Basic Brine Recipe if you want, but I usually change it up a bit for pork steaks.  Here is what I use (measurements depend on quantity of meat):

2c Water
1c Apple juice
1/2 can of Coke and Sprite
1/2c Salt
1/2c Dark Brown Sugar

Brine for at least an hour, up to overnight if possible.  Remove from brine, rinse with cold water, and place on a tray.

Hey Kevin, brine looks great! would you say this fits about 4 chops?

Hey Ted – thanks! And yes, I’d say 4 – 6 chops, depending on their thickness/size.
