"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."

"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."

"Have nade this several times with 2 large pork chops and is always good. Last night I had run out of ketchup and used chili sauce and it was super! The key is to watch the temp closely and take it off heat when it hits 140 degrees, put a lid on it--temp will continue to rise the next few min and this way it's never dried out!"

"Made 2 pork chops and all of the sauce. We thought it was great. Will definitely make it again. I do not like the taste of beer to drink but I do like the flavor it imparts to cooked foods."

"I doubled the sauce, minced a medium onion and added to the sauce that I had , placed in a seperate non reacting sauce pan and brought to a boild to evorporate the beer flavor or taste, and reduce the mixture till thick, I keep tasting the sauce till I knew the achol favor had evporated, then poured over the pork chops and finished cooking, was awesome. I would do it my way again."
