I've read this somewhere before. What's the science behind it again?

Two pages and no mention of brine?

For fricking shame, people.

Thin chops don't need a brine.

Seriously? Brining a pork chop seems like an unnecessary waste of time. Cook it well and you'll have a juicy chop without the brine.

I always marinate/brine mine...plain pork chops are more boring than chicken breasts to me.

wait, so are we talking about marinating? brining? seasoning? oh course plain pork chops are going to suck .. still no absolute defense of brining.

Both-ish?

I rarely do a strict plain brine... osmosis will carry in some flavor, so might as well take advantage of it.

I'm not sure I remember correctly, but I think it has to do with the hot pan immediately causing the meat to tighten, which squeezes the moisture out. I have used this method many times and it always works. It's the only way I do them now.
