"I made this with 6 boneless pork chops instead of 4 and had leftovers. The first time we ate these we felt that the pork was tough. I put the leftover pork and sauce in a ziplock bag. When cooking the leftovers, I dumped the contents of the ziplock bag into a frying pan, covered it and cooked it over a low heat, 30 minutes each side like I do for another pork recipe which produces a very tender piece of meat. In the future, I will season and brown the recipe and then do the low and slow method because we loved it the way it produced a nice tender and flavorful pork chop."

"These had good flavor & were tender. Next time I will use 1/4 c beer instead of 3/4. I used Beck's beer.

"These were pretty good, for pork chops. I used the recipe as a starting point only, since we did not have any beer. Instead I prepared it with BBQ sauce and peach-pecan flavored whiskey. DH liked it so I'll probably make it again sometime."

"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."
