Recipe: Pork chops in beer
I've always loved pork chops - especially when they are cooked on the bone. I was nicknamed "chops" as a child for good reason. Man, oh man, these are really, really good - especially served with smashed potatoes.
Yield: 4 servings
Active Time: 20 minutes
Simmer Time: 20-30 minutes
Cost: Approx. $12
- 1 cup all-purpose white flour
- 6-8 pork chops, bone-in (about 1/2-thick)
- 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
- 12 ounces beer*
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
*Use your favorite beer - it will dictate much of the flavor.
1. Season both sides of pork chops with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Coat pork chops with flour.
2. In a large skillet or heavy-bottomed sauté pan, brown chops in butter and oil.
3. Combine beer, soy sauce, ginger and garlic; bring to a boil. Pour over chops. Cover and cook 15-20 minutes over low heat.
