  1. Pound pork chops with a meat hammer. Mix lemon juice and whey together in a small bowl.

  2. Place pork chops in a large glass bowl. 

  3. Pour whey and lemon juice over pork chops.

  4. Leave uncovered in the refrigerator for at least one hour and up to 8 hours. Turn them once or twice during that time.

  5. Dry pork chops thoroughly with paper towels or a clean dishtowel. No need to rinse, but you can if you like.

  6. Cook as desired in the oven, on the grill, or a frypan on the stovetop.

  7. Serve immediately and refrigerate any leftovers.

Recipe Notes

Lemon juice or other types of vinegar such as rice vinegar or white wine vinegar may be substituted for the apple cider vinegar.  I do not recommend white distilled vinegar, as it is usually made from GMO corn.
