Pork chops are my kryptonite… as in, I always make them too dry. I came into some beautiful chops, and decided I was going to do it right and put the time in to brine these bad boys. What a difference! They were flavorful, juicy, and a great addition to our Sunday night rotation.




  1. The day before, in a gallon storage bag (enter brand name here,) or a shallow dish with a lid, add water, sugar, salt, and seasonings and mix until sugar and salt are dissolved.
  2. Add pork chops and seal bag. place in a second bag or shallow dish, and let sit overnight in the fridge.
  3. When you are ready to cook, preheat oven to 400, remove chops from brine and pat dry. Discard brine.
  4. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp Sweet and Sassy Pork seasoning onto each side of the chops.
  5. Place on a lined sheet pan and place in 400 degree oven for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven, flip chops, and cook for 5 more minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees.
  7. Let rest for 10 minutes for juices to stay in all the right places.
