"This is a recipe I copied from a Weber Real Grilling Cookbook. Hubby put this together and it was just divine. The marinated chops can also be pan fried."

I halved the recipe/marinade. And used a lean cut of pork from the leg. The grilled steaks turned out very moist, tender and with a hint of rosemary! Absolutely lovely! UPDATE 8/2/20: This has been my go-to recipe for brined pork. Used boneless pork loin chops and grilled them on my indoor grill pan. And had to use dried rosemary, which turned out perfectly delicious! Thanks Bea for this recipe that will be made often during the year! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
