Curing The Cheap Meat Blues

I usually do The Ethical Meat Thing and buy my meats at the farmer’s market or from a local butcher shop or a food co-op that focus on well raised local meats. But, I can’t always get to those places and I’m a sucker for things that are on sale in bulk for cheap. The last bulk purchase was a big pack of boneless pork chops. The chops weren’t the highest of quality so I whipped up a salt cure with lots of spices, rubbed a couple of the chops down after breakfast and let them sit in the fridge until dinner time. Fried them up and they were yummy. It’s amazing what salt, sugar, some spices and some time to sit will do to a piece of meat. This version came from Good Meat, which is well worth picking up.
