Ingredients
  • 4 Omaha Steaks Pork T-Bones
For the brine:
  • 8 cups water (divided use)
  • 1/2 tsp. ground allspice
  • 2 tsp. ground fennel or whole fennel seeds lightly crushed
  • 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup kosher salt
  • 2 tsp. whole peppercorns
  • 1 dried bay leaf
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
For the salsa:
  • 1 cup diced peaches
  • 1/2 cup diced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 Tbsp. thinly sliced green onion
  • 1 tsp. minced fresh jalapeno (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • Lime wedges and cilantro sprigs for garnish, if desired
Preparation
For the brine:
  1. Pour 1 cup of boiling water into a very large bowl (make sure the bowl will fit in your fridge!). Add the salt and sugar to the water and stir until dissolved. Add the allspice, fennel seeds, peppercorns, bay leaf and thyme; stir to combine. Add 7 cups of very cold water. Place pork chops in the bowl and make sure they are completely submerged in the brine - you can add more water if necessary to cover the meat. Cover the bowl and place in the refrigerator for at least 10 hours but no more than 24 hours.
For the salsa:
  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl; cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, up to 4 hours.
For the Pork T-bone:
  1. Heat a grill to medium high. Remove the pork chops from the brine and pat dry with paper towels. Grill for 6-8 minutes per side or until pork is cooked through - the cook time will depend on the thickness of your meat.
  2. Remove the pork chops from the grill and place them on a platter. Spoon the salsa over the pork and serve with lime wedges and cilantro sprigs for garnish if desired.
