Buttermilk-Brined Pork Chops
2 C fat-free buttermilk
2 T kosher salt
2 T sugar
1 T grated lemon rind
1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
1 tsp chopped fresh sage (I didn't use fresh)
4 (6oz) pork chops
2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a large ziploc plastic bag; shake well to dissolve salt and sugar. Add pork to bag; seale and refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight, turning bag occasionally.
2. Remove pork from bag; discard buttermilk mixture. Pat pork dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle pork with pepper.
3. Heat a large nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add pork chops; cook about 3 1/2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.
