Elmo like Miss Piggy chops!
- 1⁄2 cup kosher salt
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 2 qts. water
- 4 boneless center cut pork chops, about 3⁄8 inch thick
- 1⁄4 cup teriyaki sauce
- 1⁄4 cup ketchup
- 1 tsp. minced ginger
- Small pinch Chinese red pepper flakes
- Pepper to taste
Mix salt, sugar, and water until dissolved. Add the pork chops and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 8 hours.
Preheat grill. Combine teriyaki sauce, ketchup, ginger, and pepper flakes.
Remove pork chops from brine, pat dry, and season with black pepper.
Coat the grill with oil spray.
Brown pork chops on both sides, about 4 minutes each. As you turn chops, brush the browned side with some of the sauce. Turn chops so they cook on their sauced sides briefly, about 1 minute.
