Savory Beer Pork Chops

    This was easy to prepare with ingredients that I have on hand. The sauce was really thin. I also added some seasonings like salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

    These were great and even my tots liked them. I dredged them in flour, also, with sazon tropical seasoning. Added sliced baby reds amd some onion to it. I ised yuengling for the beer. Coming fresh hot out the pot, they are juicy and tender.

    I made this with 6 boneless pork chops instead of 4 and had leftovers. The first time we ate these we felt that the pork was tough. I put the leftover pork and sauce in a ziplock bag. When cooking the leftovers, I dumped the contents of the ziplock bag into a frying pan, covered it and cooked it over a low heat, 30 minutes each side like I do for another pork recipe which produces a very tender piece of meat. In the future, I will season and brown the recipe and then do the low and slow method because we loved it the way it produced a nice tender and flavorful pork chop.

    This was a big hit with the whole family. The pork chops were moist and flavorful. A definite keeper!

    These had good flavor & were tender. Next time I will use 1/4 c beer instead of 3/4. I used Beck's beer.Volunteer Field Editor

    These were pretty good, for pork chops. I used the recipe as a starting point only, since we did not have any beer. Instead I prepared it with BBQ sauce and peach-pecan flavored whiskey. DH liked it so I'll probably make it again sometime.

    Double the sauce! Easy meal and good with mashed potato boats or rice.
