Wine Infused Grilled Pork Chops
Center-cut pork chops are so lean that grilling can make them dry. Brining with Holland House cooking wine changes that, infusing the pork with moisture and a rich, red wine flavor.
*For this brine, we use 1-1/2 teaspoons of table salt equaling 3540 mg sodium. If you use kosher salt, check the label and measure the amount of salt that would equal approximately 3540mg -- about 1 tablespoon depending on the brand. The amount of sodium does not have to be precise -- 200mg more or less works fine.
This brine is enough for 4 large chops (including tenderloin) or 6 smaller chops.
**Ancho chiles are mild and a bit sweet. Ground ancho is available in the spice section of grocery stores.
