Very moist! The first time around, they were a little too salty. The second time, I cut down on the salt and didn’t brine them as long and they were delicious.

Great! I used bonesless pork chops and it still came out great!

pork chops were a little dry, maybe they didn't need to cook as long (i didn't have a thermometer). but delicious! i would definitely make this again.

I didn’t have a cast iron skilled so I used a regular pan instead. I also used dried thyme and pre cut up garlic from the store. It was still very delicious.

I substituted store-bought crushed garlic for the cloves, and dry basil for the fresh thyme... still ended up pretty tasty. I also didn’t have a cast iron skillet on hand, but stainless steel seems to be okay... I’ll definitely have to try again with the proper ingredients and hardware.
