CIDER BRINED IOWA CHOPS

Ingredients:

THE BRINE

4 cups apple cider

½ cup cider vinegar

1/3 cup kosher salt

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 cups beer

4 counter cut Iowa Chops

To Taste   favorite steak rub or fresh ground black pepper

Directions:

In a bowl, combine the apple cider, vinegar, salt and sugar. Whisk until sugar and salt dissolve. Add the beer and gently stir to combine. Place the pork chops in to a gallon zip lock bag, then pour the brine mixture over the top. Carefully close the plastic bag, getting out as much of the air as possible. Place in a clean bowl or pan and let chops brine for 8 hours or overnight.

Drain pork from the brine and pat dry before grilling. Lightly season with favorite rub.

Place pork on a medium high heat grill, cook 5-7 minutes per side until pork chops are at 145 degrees F internal temperature.

Let meat rest at least 7 minutes before cutting into the meat.
