Reviews for Savory Beer Pork Chops
"This was so easy and really good! The only change I made was I dredged the chops in flour with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp of pepper and then browned them. I simmered them for 45 minutes and used more of the beer when the sauce became too thick. Will definitely make this again and again."
"I was a little nervous to try this recipe since I don't normally use beer in my cooking. It was a very subtle taste, however, even though I used a dark beer. The pork chops cooked very quickly and had a great flavor. I would definitely cook this again for me and my husband."
"Excellent! Highly recommend this recipe, best, most moist pork chops!"
"I used Guinness dark lager that was left over from another recipe. Surprisingly, I couldn't taste it."
"These are tender and have a really unique flavor. I served them with roasted sweet potatoes and baked onions and peppers. My daugher said the plate was so pretty, it looked like a restaurant dish! Will certainly make this again."
