    YIELD: 4 servings (serving size: 1 chop)
    COURSE: Main Dishes

    2 cups fat-free buttermilk
    2 tablespoons kosher salt
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
    1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
    1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage
    4 (6-ounce) bone-in center-cut pork chops (about 1/2 inch thick)
    2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
    Cooking spray


    Combine first 6 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag; shake well to dissolve salt and sugar. Add pork; seal and refrigerate overnight, turning bag occasionally. Remove pork from bag; discard brine. Pat pork dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle pork with pepper.
