Drunken Pork Chops

I love recipes that involve beer, mostly because they generally don’t have that many other ingredients, since beer is already so flavorful. Well, craft beer is. That other stuff…

Drunken Pork Chops

(recipe from Siggy Spice)

  • 5-6 pork chops- bone-in or boneless, your choice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 bottle of beer (The darker beer the better.  I used an amber ale. I would not recommend going as dark as a Guinness though.)
  • 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 cup 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. Or with crescent rolls 🙂
