Earlier this week I checked out Bloghungry’s food blog. He does a nice job on creating what I call urban comfort food. His recipes tend to have the characteristics of comfort food with an updated urban twist. I loved his recipe for Cider Brined Fried Chicken. I thought it was an innovative variation of fried chicken.
I liked the idea of using cider in a main dish. Since I had already decided to make my Harvest time Cabbage and Apples, I definitely wanted pork chops as the main dish. I opted to marinade the chops in cider, rather than brine them. I kept the recipe simple and grill them with minimal seasoning. We liked the subtle apple flavor that the cider gave the pork.
4 boneless loin pork chops
1 cup apple cider
½ tsp apple pie spice
Place pork loin chops, apple cider and apple pie spice in a gallon food storage bag. Place in the refrigerator to marinade at least 4 hours up; to over night. Turn occasionally to assure an even marinade. Drain and grill. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
