Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Whisk together the water, orange juice, 1/2 cup salt, light brown sugar, garlic powder, oregano, and thyme in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Submerge the pork chops in the brine. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and brine in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  2. Heat grapefruit juice, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and red pepper flakes in a saucepan. Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to a boil; reduce heat and cook until syrupy, about 15 minutes. Remove 3 tablespoons of the mixture and set aside. Add half of the grapefruit sections to the syrup mixture and cook for 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  4. Remove the pork chops from the brine and pat dry. Place the pork chops on a baking sheet lined with tin foil. Brush each side of the chops with the reserved grapefruit juice syrup. Season with salt and pepper. Broil for 7 to 10 minutes on each side and the pork is no longer pink in the center. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
  5. Place the remaining fresh grapefruit sections on the pork and drizzle relish over the top.

The relish is great, but the chops were dry. I had grapefruit juice and oranges, so I used grapefruit juice instead of OJ for the brine, and orange sections instead of grapefruit for the relish.

Oddly, my review is the exact opposite of the previous reviewers: the pork was good and the relish was awful. It may have something to do with the fact that the previous reviewer reversed the use of orange and grapefruit. I also halved the salt. I think this would probably be excellent if the grapefruit was omitted altogether and oranges used in their place.
