I honestly do not understand why this recipe is rating so low!! THE CHOPS were PERFECT!! and super easy too!! I let the chops sit in the sauce for about an hour and a half prior to cooking. This made them super tender!!! I also added in a few 'smashed' cloves of garlic, some pepper, a pinch of cayenne, a dash of dry moustard and a couple dashes of worchestire sauce. Alongside the chops (in the sauce) I also added some largely chopped green and red peppers, and some onions. THEY WERE GREAT and a hit with the family... the beer was the perfect taste... not over powering at all!! LOVED THEM!! I would recommend this one again and again!
It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't wonderful either. The ketchup overpowers everything & really, if I wanted my pork chops to taste like ketchup, I'd just dip them in it. I won't be making this one again.
This is a simple and good weeknight dish. Made a few changes the 2nd time: I seasoned the chops good with garlic salt and pepper and then browned them. I used only half the beer, adding 8 oz. of water. I topped each chop with a thin slice of onion and then poured the liquid over the chops. I baked covered with foil for 50 minutes, uncovered them and baked 15 min. more. This made them more tender and juicy. I served over rice, but the next time, I'm going to add one cup of uncooked rice to the dish at the beginning. I think this will absorb some of the extra liquid. My family liked the taste of these pork chops.
This recipe is definitely a keeper. Quick and delicious, lending itself to a wide variety of side dishes.
I have used this recipe with a beef roast before, cooked in my beloved Pampered Chef clay cooker (has a lid) and it always is tender and yummy. I was looking to make a meal for a co-op Freezer Swap that would work in the crock pot and was a little cheaper than purchasing 5 roasts. ...and it had never crossed my mind to use pork chops. I placed the raw, un-panseared chops in the crock pot and poured the ingredients over them and mixed. I cooked them for 4 hours on high. Then removed the chops and cut away the bones, cut/shredded my tender pork chops and threw the meat back into the juice so it was flavor-ful and juicy, and then scooped it out with a slotted spoon. I highly recommend cooking this in the crock pot as oppossed to the oven....it concerned me that so many people complained of dryness, but I didn't have this problem at all in my crock. My husband and I both found this to be flavorful and enjoyed it greatly....I used Michelob Beer, I hate the taste of beer, and have yet to drink more than just a sip, and I can say that the taste of beer was not overwhelming at all. I have also used Honey Brown in the past to make both my roast and beer bread and have enjoyed the flavor. I can't wait to hear what my fellow swappers think of this easy meal!! Good Luck!
I tried this last night - husband and PICKY 4 yr old son loved it! I did change it a bit after reading the reviews. I only used about a cup of ketchup. I added some worcestershire sauce, chopped onion, mustard (to cut the sweet), and used about 3/4 of a beer. I seared the chops first and gave them some flavor with garlic salt and pepper. Served with Au Gratin potatoes - easy and great! Thanks for the recipe!
Made for the Family, very very good, i added minute rice the last 10 minutes , which added a lot of flavor, will definatly cook again.
Wonderful!!!! Fast and Delicious. I followed the advice of other reviewers. I let the chops sit in the sauce for 1 hour prior to cooking. I added a few dashes of worchishire, cayene pepper, and black pepper to the sauce. I also covered with foil while cooking for 50 min. and removed it, drained the liquid, and added more sauce and cooked uncovered 15 more minutes.
