This meal is the down home, hearty food of my youth. Yet when I first read the recipe, my “foodie sense” (kinda like spidey-sense), was sent screaming. Yet another of those recipes that the ingredients seem to be too sparse and simple to do much of anything, but those darn flavor fairies do that dance again, and it is wonderful! It is a definite staple in my menu planning.
Note: For the beer… I use a Black Or Amber Ale. Most people think Guinness is too dark.
Put a little bit of extra virgin olive oil in the bottom of a skillet. Season the chops with salt and pepper and brown both sides. While pork chops are browning, combine beer, ketchup, and brown sugar in a bowl. Pour this sauce mixture over the pork chops and simmer for 40-45 minutes.
Remove pork chops and thicken the sauce a bit. In a small cup, combine 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch in 1/4 cup of water. Stir to combine and add to the boiling sauce, whisking so that no lumps form. Put pork chops back into the thickened sauce, flip to coat. Serve over mashed potatoes or rice.
Have your drink and eat it too!
Weeknight dinners can be a monumental task for families on the run. Late meetings at work, sporting events, or last minute shopping trips, there are tons are reasons not to have a homemade meal. But savvy cooks know the slow cooker can be a home cook’s best friend. This recipe is a spin on the traditional Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich. By using chicken breasts, the meal is instantly lightened.
