6 cups (1400 ml) water
3 tbsp (38 g) salt
3 tbsp (38 g) brown sugar
4 sprigs fresh rosemary
3 garlic cloves mashed
1 tbsp (15 ml) fennel seeds
1 tbsp (15 ml) black pepper corns

6 bone-in pork chops
1 tbsp (15 ml) olive oil
3 tbsp (45 ml) fresh rosemary
freshly cracked pepper
Finishing salt like Maldon Sea Salt

6 medium-ripe nectarines
1 tbsp (15 ml) grapeseed or vegetable oil

4 medium sized fennel bulbs, tops removed, sliced into wedges
2 tbsp (30 ml) olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Heat water, salt, sugar, rosemary and garlic in a saucepan on medium high heat until sugar and salt is dissolves. Transfer to a large heat safe bowl. Allow brine to cool completely, otherwise it will cook your chops before you are ready! You can pop in the fridge or freezer to quicken the cooling process.

Once the brine completely cooled add your pork chops. Cover and refrigerate 4-6 hours.

Toss fennel wedges with olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Place on a baking tray single layer and roast at 425F for 30-40 mins until wilted and caramelized.

Remove chops from the brine. Pat dry. Brush both sides with grapeseed oil or vegetable oil. Season with freshly cracked pepper (no salt needed due to the brine, better to add a sprinkle of fleur de sel at the end once grilled), and freshly minced rosemary.

Slice nectarine in half, remove the pits with a melon baller or spoon. Brush both slides with grapeseed oil.

Grill pork chops for 6-9 mins each side depending on thickness, less time for thinner chops, more time for thicker chops. And grill peaches cut side down alongside of pork,

Flip chops and peaches and grill them 5-7 mins more each side.

On a large platter arrange the chops in the center, and place roasted fennel on one side, and charred nectarines on the other. Garnish pork with a sprinkle of fleur de sel sea salt.



  1. Hi beth can i use peaches instead of nectarine ?

  2. Allison Hunter

    Beth, what temperature would I be looking for in making sure my porl chops are done if I'm using a meat thermometer? I'm not very comfortable cooking meat like that, so I feel like a thermometer would make me feel better about it being fully cooked. Thanks!

  3. Michael D'Auben

    A great recipe. I like fennel so I appreciate another idea if go to use it, and the chops look delicious! I'm hoping for at least one more good weekend to do some grilling now.

  4. Can I substitute nectarine and fennel with apple and onion?

  5. monica ramirez

    Would cabbage work the same way

  6. Everything you do is exquisite and shot beautifully. Thanks for another great video X

    recently saw on your video how to make a white chocolate mousse tilted wine glasses using egg boxes together with another food (cannot remember which).Β  I now cannot find this recipe, is it possible to show again.

    Yum, just bought nectarines yesterday. My pork chops always end up tough but maybe the brining trick will help with that. Really wanna try this!

  15. Can you do a 21 day fix approved recipe please

    Hi Beth! Thank you for this great recipe. Can you recommend how many time do I refrigerate my pork in a brine and grill it if I'll use a grill pan? Does cocking time depend from a type of a grill?

  18. Shachi Phene

    Beth I'm craving one of your long-form meal prep vids! I miss those so much!

  19. I recently found you on Youtube and I just want to say that I absolutely adore your videos. Everything you make looks so elegant and I love how accessible you make cooking! I have been watching your dinner party videos on repeat – I especially appreciate the game plan part because they're so practical. Please considering doing more themed dinner party videos because they are amazing! P.s. it should go without saying that all your other videos are incredible too x

    That looks so beautiful!! It reminded me one of the dishes that we always make here at my house, which is pork with pineapple, if you haven't tried that combo yet, Beth, I highly suggest you to do it, it's beyond delicious πŸ˜‰
