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.

This was a big hit with the whole family. The pork chops were moist and flavorful. A definite keeper!

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

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.

Double the sauce! Easy meal and good with mashed potato boats or rice.

Whole family approved!!! I thickened the sauce with some cornstarch. It was the perfect amount of sweet. So easy & quick to make.

Delicious, as promised. Easy to cut down or double; I covered them while cooking, to be sure to preserve the moisture.

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.
