  6. 1½ teaspoons Vietnamese chili garlic sauce

Instructions
  1. Rinse the pork chops, pat dry and place in a freezer bag.
  2. Bring the apple cider, water, ½ cup sugar and ⅓ cup kosher salt to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir until sugar and salt dissolves.
  3. Remove from heat and add a few ice cubes to cool the brine.
  4. Allow to cool completely then add to the freezer bags with the pork chops along with the rosemary sprigs, garlic cloves and black peppercorns.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours up to overnight.
  6. Remove the pork chops from the brine and discard the brine.
  7. Pat the pork dry with a paper towel and lightly brush with olive oil and season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  8. Preheat one side of the grill to high and one side to low.
  9. Brown the chops for about 5 minutes or until nice grill marks develop and then turn to the other side and cook for another 5 minutes. Turn the chops over and move them to the low-heat part of the grill.
  10. Cook for another 10-12 minutes or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 155 degrees in the thickest part of the chop.
  11. Transfer to a platter and tent with aluminum foil for about 5 minutes and chops reach 160 degrees.
  12. While pork chops are cooking on the low temperature side of the grill, lightly coat the peach halves on the fleshy side of the fruit with 1 tablespoon of Habanero Olive Oil and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons of the sugar.
  13. Grill the peaches flesh side down on the high temperature side of the grill for about 4-5 minutes on each side. Transfer to a cutting board and cut into slices.
  14. Mix the red onions with the remaining tablespoon of habanero olive oil, peach white balsamic, chili garlic sauce, 1 teaspoon sugar and a pinch of kosher salt. Add the sliced peaches to the red onions and gently mix.
  15. Top the pork chops with the peaches and onion mix and garnish with torn basil leaves.
