I am always looking for new ways to make pork, it's one of those meats that I tend to get bored with easily and need some diversity.
The chops come out really tender and full of flavor. Be forewarned though, you need to use an Amber Ale or a Black Ale, apparently Guiness is too strong.
Drunken Pork Chops
5-6 pork chops- bone-in or boneless, your choice
Salt and pepper to taste
1 bottle of beer (the darker the beer, the more flavorful the sauce)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup ketchup
Put a little bit of extra virgin olive oil in the bottom of a skillet. Season the chops with salt and pepper and brown both sides. While pork chops are browning, combine beer, ketchup, and brown sugar in a bowl. Pour sauce mixture over the pork chops and simmer for 40-45 minutes. Remove pork chops and thicken the sauce a bit. In a small cup, combine 1 TBSP of cornstarch in 1/4 of water. Stir to combine and add to boiling sauce, whisk so no lumps form. Put pork chops back in the thickened sauce, flip to coat. Serve over mashed potatoes or rice.
