Juiciest Fried Pork Chops  ( prep time about 2 hours for brining and resting, and about 10 minutes cooking time.)  Thanks to America’s Test Kitchen, always a juicy chop!

Fried Pork Chops Ingredients:

 2 pork chops, 1/4 c. sugar, 1/4 c. salt, about 6 c. water ( First cup on the warmer side) , 1-2 tbsp. vegetable oil.

Instructions:

In a large bowl, pour salt and sugar. Add the water slowly and mix with a whisk until dissolved. Put the chops into the liquid, cover, and refrigerate 1-1/2 hours.  Remove chops, pat dry with paper towels, and place on a plate. Grind fresh black pepper over them and add a little salt. Let rest room temp about 30 minutes. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat until hot, and fry chops about five minutes on the first side, and after reducing heat a bit, fry another 5 minutes on the second side. Chops should register 140-145 degrees  at their center.  Place on a plate to rest tented with foil  for about 10  minutes before serving.
