    Steps

    1
    Done

    For Molasses Brine: put ingredients in a large bag; close and shake it until the sugar and salt dissolve. You should add chops, press out the air, seal it, and put it in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours.

    Done

    Dispatch chops from brine and pats them until dry. Rub it with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. And then, sprinkle them all over with paprika. Set aside to rest for 1 hour (room temperature).

    3
    Done

    Heat your grill. Mix the salsa, lime juice, cilantro, and the remaining oil. Brush the grill grate and paint it with oil. You also need to coat corn with oil; you can start grilling it over medium-high heat, turn it until it turns brown (the process should take 10 minutes).

    Done

    In the meantime, grill chops until properly grill-marked, each side from 2 to 3 minutes. The next step is to reduce the heat under chops to medium-low if you are using a gas grill/move chops to a low-heat area when grilling on charcoal or wood grill, cover it, and grill it from 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium (about 140°F). Move to a platter.

    Meanwhile, chops rest, scatter kernels from corn and blend them into salsa. Serve with chops. Enjoy!
