MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 18, 2014

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.

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.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 4, 2013

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!
