Verjus-Brined Pork Chops with Marinated Leeks

These verjus-brined pork chops are accompanied by charred leeks, which are drizzled with vinaigrette and wrapped in foil before they hit the grates.Charity Burggraaf

Verjus, the unfermented juice of pressed unripe grapes, lends a subtle, sweet-tart bite to these chops. A slightly sweeter vinegar like rice vinegar is a fine substitute. Cooking note: Please allow at least 12 hours for marinating.
