Ingredients:  
4 1"-thick pork chops

BRINE:
5 cups water
1/4 cup kosher salt
1/4 cup sugar

MARINADE:
4 tsp. dried thyme leaves, crumbled
1 tsp. dried rosemary, crushed
2 garlic cloves, pressed
2 Tbsp. balsamic vineger
2 Tbsp. olive oil

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375.

Rinse the pork chops with water and pat them dry with paper towels.

In a large bowl, whisk together the brine until the sugar and salt are dissolved. Place the pork chops in the brine, cover and brine overnight in the refrigerator. Drain the brine. Rinse chops in cold water and let stand in cold water for 10 minutes. Pat dry.

Whisk together the marinade ingredients. Place pork chops in the marinade and allow them to marinate for 1 hour.

On the stove, heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat, then pour in 2 Tbsp. oil and let it heat until it shimmers. Sear the chops for about 2 minutes on each side (until well caramelized). Flip and do the other sides for 2 minutes. You can either remove them from the pan and place them in a roasting pan or, if your skillet can be placed in the oven, roast them directly in the pan. Pour remaining marinade over chops. Roast the chops until the temp. indicates 145.
