  • 4 boneless loin pork chops 1-in/2.5cm thick
  • Oil


  • 1 qt lukewarm water
  • 1/4 cup kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar


  • 2 tbs high-quality sweet paprika
  • 1 tbs high-quality smoky paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder


  • Brining may be omitted if you prefer.
  • Mix brine ingredients, stirring until sugar and salt are dissolved.
  • Place pork chops in a deep dish and cover with the brine solution. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours.
  • Mix rub ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.
  • Remove chops from brine and pat dry with paper towels. Brush both sides of chops with a bit of oil.
  • Sprinkle rub on both sides of chops and rub into the meat.
  • Heat a stovetop grill or large skillet over medium-high heat. If you are using a skillet, add 1 tbs of oil to the pan to prevent sticking. If using the grill, this is not necessary.
  • Grill chops for 8-10 minutes on each side. Chops should register 170F/75C internally. If you desire chops well done, you can finish cooking in a 350F/180C oven for 5-10 minutes.
