  • 6 boneless pork loin chops 3 pounds total


  • 2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup kosher salt
  • 8 garlic cloves pressed
  • 1 bunch fresh thyme
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 tbs peppercorns
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 tbs canola oil


  • 3/4 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 rosemary sprig
  • 4 tbs cut-up unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • Kosher salt and black pepper


  • Bring orange juice, brown sugar, salt, garlic, thyme, bay leaves, peppercorns, cinnamon, and 6 cups water to a simmer in a large pot. Remove from heat. Cool to room temperature. Add pork and brine 12 hours.
  • Remove pork from brine and rinse under cold water. Pat pork dry with paper towels.
  • Preheat oven to 350F/180C. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork, in batches, turning once, until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until the internal temperature reaches 160F/70C 4 to 6 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes. Serve drizzled with glaze.
  • Make the Glaze:
  • Combine molasses, apple cider vinegar, and rosemary in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until reduced to 2/3 cup, 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Whisk in unsalted butter and bourbon; continue to cook until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Season with kosher salt and black pepper.
