Shallot & Mustard Brine

January 26, 2017

This 8-hour brine will ensure juicier chops, with the tangy addition of mustard balanced by the sweetness of honey. Thyme or marjoram can be used in this recipe depending on availability and personal taste.

A Rioja with lively acidity is recommended below as a foil to that spiciness the mustard brings, keeping any inadvertent bitterness at bay.
